Riassunto: Science for Sale in the Autism Wars is the real-world story of a landmark legal battle between children with autism versus government and their academic mercenaries. This book is a front row seat to the difficult struggle to provide children with health care insurance for their medically necessary autism treatment.
Dall'editore: The leading autism treatment attorney in the U.S., Gary Mayerson, says this about Science for Sale in the Autism Wars: "Science for Sale in the Autism Wars is a story crying out to be told. Dr. Sabrina Freeman ... expertly describes in her direct, no-holds-barred fashion precisely how health technology science was hijacked and distorted by British Columbia government ministries and their supporters, all in an effort to deprive children with autism of a "medically necessary" autism intervention … She exposes how and why government functionaries placed in charge of protecting children with autism have breached the public trust …"
"Dr. Freeman, a skilled and articulate advocate, performs the investigatory equivalent of an autopsy wielding a razor-sharp scalpel. With the reported incidence of autism clearly on the rise, Dr. Freeman’s analysis of the Auton case has profound implications for a whole generation of young children (and their families) very much at risk."
"The story behind the now famous Auton court case—a case that the government lost at the Supreme Court level as well as on appeal to the British Columbia Court of Appeal, presents a pitched battle that has been waged for centuries … As Dr. Freeman explains, the Auton case turned into a case essentially pitting science against pseudoscience or non-science."
"Dr. Freeman sends a powerful message about the search for truth, and how that search is being distorted and corrupted by handsomely compensated health technology scientists who are allowing their integrity to be compromised."
Gary Mayerson is founder of Mayerson & Associates, a law practice in Manhattan dedicated almost exclusively to the representation of children and adolescents diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.
