"Journalists should know that there are over 400 treatments for autism, and that autism treatment has become a multimillion-dollar industry. If a journalist picked one treatment a week, he or she would have enough to write about for eight years. In fact, many promoters of various autism treatments use the Internet to tout miracle cures and in so doing, rely heavily on heart-wrenching testimonials. We can assure you that touching stories can be found for almost all of these interventions."
