Is that evidence based?

When your child first receives an Autism Diagnosis or if your child has had the diagnosis for some time, one thing parents have is questions. Often people will recommend verified therapies (ABA, SLP, OT) and sometimes people recommend something they heard helped their friend's cousin's ex's child who has Autism. I am often asked if I've heard of music therapy or equine therapy, and if it's any good. One place that I regularly refer parents to is The Association for Science in Autism Treatment ( https://asatonline.org/ ). You can search for treatments and read about the evidence behind them. I strongly recommend parents and caregivers bookmark this website and review it regularly for best practices. You should even look up ABA on here before starting any treatment!
