Effects of Inclusion for Children with Autism

The Autism spectrum encompasses a large number of children with certain behavioral and emotional communication disorders. The number of children diagnosed withing this spectrum has increased exponentially in recent years. We feel this is due to the readiness of psychologists in applying the Autism labelĀ  when confronted with difficulties within the child. We have seen hundreds of children who have been mistakenly labeled to the spectrum. We advocate against placing these children in special environments, and instead allowing them to go through a mainstream educational career.

We are currently conducting a follow-up study proving many of these children have been misdiagnosed. We hope that our study will impact the psychological world and encourage psychologists to be more cautious in their diagnosis.
