Health Journalism 2011: Reporting on effectiveness of autism treatments

The mother of a child with autism, along with medical experts, helped unravel the complicated information about treating the condition during a panel at Health Journalism 2011 in Philadelphia. They discussed complementary and alternative treatments, the unusually high placebo effect found in autism treatments and some therapies that have less evidence to prove their effectiveness.

The panelists also offered a useful list of suggestions for reporters who are covering autism and the treatments available.
