Abstract

No aspect of autism has attracted as much interest as the subject of interventions. Autism is one of the most puzzling disorders with a generally poor prognosis for total recovery (Lockyer & Rutter, 1969). Despite this reality there have been a substantial number of alleged cures, mostly in the public media (Biklen, 1990; Maurice, 1993). One of the most difficult responsibilities of parents and professionals concerned about people with autism is to sort through the intervention literature and try to make sense out of the many conflicting claims.
