The National Academy of Sciences Commission on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education published the seminal work on what the science does and does not say about educating children with Autism in their 2001 book: Educating Children with Autism.  We at Reinforcement Unlimited, LLC urge every parent and service provider to read this critically important work.  To facilitate this we have added a link so that you can read the book for free.  NAS offers access to this book via a program called "open book" which allows you to read the entire work online at the National Academies Press website.  "The Open Book page image presentation framework is not designed to replace printed books. Rather, it is a free, browseable, nonproprietary, fully and deeply searchable version of the publication which we can inexpensively and quickly produce to make the material available worldwide."

2nd Revision (Adopted May 22, 2007) of the GUIDELINES FOR CONSUMERS OF APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS SERVICES TO INDIVIDUALS WITH AUTISM have been developed by  The Autism Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Association for Behavior  Analysis International. "Formal credentialing of professional behavior analysts (i.e., registration, certification, or licensure) can provide safeguards for  consumers, including means of screening potential providers and some recourse if incompetent or unethical practices are encountered. At present, however, procedures for credentialing professional behavior analysts are in place in only a few states. Until they are implemented more widely, the Autism SIG recommends that consumers seek to determine if those who claim to be qualified to direct ABA programs for people with autism meet .....minimum standards."  These guidelines are available for download in PDF format via the above link.

The Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT) is committed to science as the most objective, time-tested and reliable approach to discerning between safe, effective autism treatments, and those that are harmful or ineffective. ASAT supports all scientifically sound research on the prevention, treatment and cure of autism, as well as all treatments for autism that are shown to be effective through solid scientific research, regardless of discipline or domain.

The mission of the Autism Society of America is to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals within the autism spectrum, and their families, to be fully participating, included members of their community. Education, advocacy at state and federal levels, active public awareness and the promotion of research form the cornerstones of ASA's efforts to carry forth its mission.

The National Alliance for Autism Research (NAAR) is a national nonprofit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to finding the causes, prevention, effective treatment and, ultimately, cure of the autism spectrum disorders. Until NAAR was established by parents in 1994, there was no national nonprofit organization in the United States devoted to funding and otherwise accelerating biomedical research in autism and related disorders.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Autism Information Center describes autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and federal and state research projects. Also provides links to resources for families and researchers.

 

The Lovaas Institute for Early Intervention is a research based Institute that specializes in teaching pre-school aged children with autism, pervasive developmental disorders, and related developmental disabilities. The behavioral intervention program was developed in the Psychology Department of UCLA under the direction of Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas. It is based on extensive clinical experience and more than 35 years of scientific research.

 

Families for Early Autism Treatment (FEAT) "is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing world class Education, Advocacy, and Support .... and is a non-profit organization of parents and professionals, designed to help families with children who have received the diagnosis of Autism or Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD NOS)."

The National Library of Medicines Online Search Engine. NLM's search service to access the 9 million citations in MEDLINE and Pre-MEDLINE (with links to participating on-line journals), and other related databases.  

Richard Saffran has put together a very comprehensive resource on Autism, PDD, Hyperlexia, and Asperger's with parent resources, personal stories from families, research links, and a whole host of other online resources for those grappling with ASDs.  His step-by-step guide for parents is one of the best guides for parents of newly diagnosed children we have ever seen anywhere.
