This section contains an alphabetic list of interventions, and some specific techniques, designed to help people with autism spectrum disorders.
You may be able to find more information, including links to other parts of this website, by clicking on the title of an intervention.
If you know of an intervention which is not listed here please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we reserve the right to not include information about an intervention if we do not consider it appropriate.
The fact that an intervention or technique is listed here does not necessarily mean that we support its use. Nor does it mean that there is any scientifically valid or reliable evidence behind it.
Over time we hope to evaluate each of the interventions and techniques in this section, providing a ranking which tells you the level of scientific evidence which supports or does not support its use. You can find details of the interventions we have already ranked in the list of Evaluated interventions
