Functional Analysis Before Intervening in Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

One of the strongest arguments against ABA is cost, as the intervention is both time and resource-intensive. Parents may often object to research-proven strategies if those strategies entail separating their child from the mainstream classroom or including the child in a mainstream classroom -- both of which may be problematic for the child or the parents.

What are some of the strategies utilized with children with autism that do not have evidence of effectiveness? Why have these become so prevalent? What, if anything, is the danger in the implementing such strategies?

Strategies such as relying on antidepressants, antipsychotics, facilitated communication, sensory integration, and psychological manipulation are ineffective for dealing with autism (Spiesel). These strategies have become prevalent because of the desperation of parents confronting a problem for which there is no real cure. Some of the ineffective strategies will prove harmless, but many such as reliance on pharmaceuticals, could prove disastrous.
