The scientific literature and my 35 years experience as a psychologist have convinced me that Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is the most effective treatment for children with Autism or other Neuropsychological Disorders. My "Clinic Notes" will document current clinical and scientific developments

Autism sites in the blogosphere often provide much heat and shed little light on how to help autistic persons, particularly severely autistic children. Important issues sometimes become bogged down in personality attacks and personal prejudices. As a parent and an advocate I am happy to have a blog site on which to express my views and relate my experiences. But the arguments over causes of autism and the politically correct way to describe persons with autism , even mention of our own childrens' challenges, seems to ignite furious rhetoric and do little to add to our knowledge of how to deal with autism. The above site by Dr. Gary Brown looks like it could be a signicant and positive addition to the blogosphere. Dr. Brown also has a web site with information and links to resources for parents and other persons focussed on improving the lives of autistic children - ABA4Autism.com. Check out Dr. Brown's blog and web sites.
