Government of Canada Advising: Our Report on the Problems of the ABA Industry

Autistics for Autistics is submitting a series of reports to the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences, the arms-length agency that is reviewing Canadian autism policy and needs of our community throughout 2021.

CAHS requests reports in 3 areas: social inclusion; economic inclusion and evidence-based services. Our report, “Not All ‘Evidence-Based’ Interventions are Equal” is a critical examination of the ABA industry in Canada, and the need to de-fund it in favour of inclusion-based models.

Here is the report: 2021_CAHS_Interventions_Submission_Autistics_for_Autistics
