A diagnosis of Autism is devastating and as parents we want to do everything to help our children. In our drive to help our children we are vulnerable to the false claims of non-scientific interventions for Autism. This is the time when we must rely on science to guide our judgement in the best interests of our children. If the intervention recommended is not supported by scientific publications then the claims have not been validated.
Simple Steps was funded by The Big Lottery Fund and BBC Children in Need.
