Issue 21: Autumn 2013


AuKids steps into the controversy surrounding the science of autism by talking to some actual scientists. Our policy is always to focus on what we know DOES work rather than spend precious editorial pages slating interventions that we feel are dubious. We got to the stage, though, where there was so much debate raging around us, we could ignore it no longer. In our Science Fiction and Fact feature, we interviewed the authors of The Good and Bad Science of Autism – Geneticist Dr Neil Walsh and Neuroscientist Dr Elisabeth Hurley (not that Elisabeth Hurley). We asked them about causes, cures and claims and told us to give us the answers in plain English, using plain science.
