How do we decide what to do for our kids?

There are so many people who tell us so many things about what we ought to do or ought not to do for our children with autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This talk will sort through how we decide what we do for our children, and includes discussion of current important concepts of Evidence Based Medicine to help families demand real informed consent and have real parental choice in selecting interventions for their children with ASDs.
