Abstract

This article presents a case study in the misrepresentation of applied behavior analysis for autism based on Morton Ann Gernsbacher’s presentation of a lecture titled ‘‘The Science of Autism: Beyond the Myths and Misconceptions.’’ Her misrepresentations involve the characterization of applied behavior analysis, descriptions of practice guidelines, reviews of the treatment literature, presentations of the clinical trials research, and conclusions about those trials (e.g., children’s improvements are due to development, not applied behavior analysis). The article also reviews applied behavior analysis’ professional endorsements and research support, and addresses issues in professional conduct. It ends by noting the deleterious effects that misrepresenting any research on autism (e.g., biological, developmental, behavioral) have on our understanding and treating it in a transdisciplinary context.

    Thank you for this article, being aware of how the general public views ABA is an important part of our career and can never be understated.

    Article was not something covered in school–provided a unique perspective on the limitations of application.

    It was an interesting take on an increasingly difficult topic to digest. As a new practitioner, I carry a lot of guilt of the old practice of behavior analysis. I enjoyed getting to explore the data of the changes and see the position from a data point of view.
