SKEPTICS IN THE PUB – Autism: An introduction to treatments; the good the bad and the ugly – Speaker: Tannice Pendegrass
After going through definitions of Autism and what it means for the person on the ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) Tannice will reveal the results of her own survey into what people know and think about autism its effects causes and treatments.
As a former ABA tutor with the UK Young Autism Project for children on the austistic spectrum Tannice keeps a close eye on new developments in treatments. However she’s not impressed with some of the purported miracle cures that include the usual suspects of homeopathy and acupuncture and the terrible stress and toxic treatments that many children must endure. So she takes you through the pros and cons of ‘quack’ treatments and the evidence for learning-based treatments like ABA.
