In Episode 72, Ben chats with Kristen Bottema-Beutel, Ph.D. Much of Kristen’s research is in the area of research ethics and quality. She and her team have analyzed countless autism intervention studies including many in applied behaviour analysis and has found some startling results. ABA research is especially problematic when it comes to a lack of randomization, failure to report conflicts of interest, and very little data on adverse events. This episode will change how you read and interpret research.
