Does anybody know more about this? The article is by somebody who says they are running a petition to ask NICE to include more about ABA in its latest draft guidance. I would like to sign this petition but it doesn't say how you can do this in the article.

Anyone who would like to sign this petition can PM me or pipinjo with their email address, and one of us will make sure it gets onto the petition. It is basically asking NICE to give ABA more of a shout in its latest guidance on autism, which will be very influential in what all the professionals recommend for our kids for the next 10 or 20 years. At the moment, the guidance reads a bit like :"we're not really sure what to do for autism, so let's leave everything just as it is, we're sure it's all fine".
