There has been a lot of discussion of an article on autism by Tony Humphreys in the Examiner.
I'm not going to go into the details of the article - I have not read it. I understand from comments that it largely blames parents for autism in children.
I've started this thread, because I notice from other writings and activities of Humphreys, he adopts a populist self-help tone, and does not seem to have produced any academic peer reviewed work.
He describes himself as a clinical psychologist who started his career in the English and Irish State psychiatric services, but does not put letters after his name.
Having regard to Tony Humphreys right to his good name, I would like to keep this thread to any factual information that he, or others, can provide, as to exactly what his qualifications and experience are.
Also discussed on this blog.
And also by Bock the Robber, - the whole article is dissected line by line.
