Say no to bad science in autism!

Autism is a condition known very well by the sceptic community, as several claims of benefits has been made for treatments directed toward autistic people while they have had little to no scientific documentation. These treatments and their associated hypotheses have been tearing the autism community into fractions because of their controversy, subjected autistics to treatments with potentially damaging or unknown side-effects, and inflicted financial burdens on families who have invested in treatments with no scientifically proven benefit.

We, the undersigned, will make a stand against those who are advocating treatments and hypotheses, that are not based on good science, to autism parents and autistic individuals who may very well be unable to examine these things critically.
