ABA Rhetoric #1: ABA interventions are the most evidence-based effective autism intervention
Actually evidence for ABA programmes is overwhelmingly poor and considered low/ very low and this was confirmed once again by a May 2018 Cochrane review.
You can also follow #ABAResearch on Twitter for other ABA related research we have been sharing.
Also, at the time of writing this, Ambitious about Autism, who run two ABA schools and an ABA college around London states on its website that “there is very little research about how ABA is applied in ABA schools” and they don’t know why or when ABA will help or harm.
This poor quality evidence is despite over 500 published studies and three decades of ABA research. No NHS guidance recommends ABA programmes, yet ABAers think having low standards for autistic people is OK. How many more decades does the global $8 billion ABA industry deserve?
