Defeating Autism A damaging delusion

Postby dr.halabia » Tue Sep 07, 2010 8:45 am

1- This is my first article here
As adentist I had to treat autistic children , so begin to read about autism
Some books i read were against dan and convinced me
The first one is here

2- Defeating Autism
A damaging delusion
Michael Fitzpatrick

3- Fitzpatrick say :
My aim with this book is to encourage parents to emphasise the positive
in relation to their autistic children, to pursue interventions for which there
is good evidence of benefit (and some guarantee of safety) and to avoid
the diversions and dead-ends offered by the perspective of ‘defeating
autism’.
Michael Fitzpatrick
4- why against dan?
First what is dan ?

5- at this link (dan site)
http://www.autism.com/pro_providers.asp
you will find :
ARI does not give practitioner referrals, maintaining a registry instead. Clinicians sign the ARI/Defeat Autism Now! philosophy statement, and pay a yearly fee ($250, to cover the costs of update letters, list maintenance, a subscription to the ARRI newsletter, and clinician-related special projects).To remain on the list, they are required to attend a professional seminar once every two years ……
6- another dan link
http://www.autism.com/pro_danlists_results.asp
ARI has no means of certifying the competence nor quality of practice of any practitioner. The lists are provided as a community service. The Autism Research Institute disclaims and does not endorse or support any individual or entity listed; makes no representations, warranties, guarantees or promises on behalf of or for those listed, and assumes no liability nor responsibility for any service or product provided. ARI does not 'certify' practitioners or guarantee competence, skill, knowledge, or experience

7- what I mean is that dan is neither amedical school nor a medical research institute
8- so , how can you trust dan ???????
