Beggers can't be choosers I guess. For year after year opposition to ABA was pathetic, stuck in the bowels of the internet, like the boy putting his finger in one hole of a crumbling dike. While 2 articles in the "mainstream media" is far far from being effective opposition against the ABA monopoly, it is something, which is more than we have ever had.

Yes, having a few articles in the mainstream media is progress, but still nowhere near sufficient for effective opposition.

To have effective opposition, it seems to me that one of the things we will need is professional associations of neurodivergent therapists and educators. Also, a professional association of autistic autism researchers.
