Background: Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) remains the ‘gold standard’ for ‘positive’ autism intervention, with recent research focusing on the pursuit of early intervention at the most initial stage of development (Dennis et al., 2013; Ismail et al., 2017) to entail the strongest possible outcomes for the individual. Despite the perceived success, little of the autistic narrative is conceptualised into practice and outcomes.
