Doctors have never been right about autism, its cause, treatment, and management. And they are not right now.


The treatments recommended by Bettelheim and his followers ranged from ineffective (therapy to fix the mothers) to what we now realize is exactly the wrong approach: placing autistic kids in an unstructured and overstimulating environment to make up for the alleged deprivation and rigidity of their families of origin.
I do not agree with this article, but it is a good read.
