A new research study calls into question the practice of defaulting to Early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) and the newly popular approach, naturalist developmental behavioral intervention (NDBI) in favour of strengths-based approaches, based on the latest neuroscience autism-related research.

From the abstract: “Once considered to be “scientifically proven”, the efficacy of these approaches has been called into question in the last decade due to poor-quality data, small effects, low cost-efficiency, and the evolution of ethical and societal standards.” You can see the study HERE.
