Evidence-based! Evidence-based!

Somewhere along the muddy highway of history, evidence-based became the buzzword for selling “autism therapy” — even though the evidence for some of the best-known “evidence-based therapies” is rather thin.

But what if we said that therapy must necessarily also be “trauma-informed”, “autist-approved” or “human rights based”?

How many of the therapies offered by the multibillion dollar “evidence-based therapy” industry would qualify?

Perhaps we would be working with a whole new set of emerging evidence.
