Key Article - Just Published!
Autism spectrum conditions are now known to occur relatively frequently (the currently accepted figure is 1 in 100 children) and research in autism is growing apace. Some aspects of autism are no longer controversial: for example, there is very broad agreement on how best to diagnose the condition. However there is still controversy on the best methods of psychological intervention, with the proponents of the two major approaches at times engaged in bitter battles.
Professor Thompson’s scholarly article reviews what is known about autism. He tracks the origins of the two approaches to early intervention and argues cogently that the time for battling is long past.
