Association for Science in Autism Treatment

I think its safe to say that autism generates the most unscientific claims either for the causes or the treatment of the problem. MMR, Thimerosal and the merits of  Chelation  all have produced large amounts of uneducated and biased opinions from both sides of the fence without any regard to the science.
There is an answer. Association for Science in Autism Treatment is "committed to science as the most objective, time-tested and reliable approach to discerning between safe, effective autism treatments".  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be very active. The last newsletter  was in 2003 but you can read them online and there is a separate library of articles
