Holding Therapy and Autism Ranking: Mildly Hazardous Insufficient/Mixed evidence

Personal Accounts

This section provides details of personal accounts of the use of holding therapy for people on the autism spectrum.

Personal accounts can be useful sources of information about the intervention but are not as scientifically valid or reliable as research trials. This may be especially true where the accounts are published by an organisation which might gain a financial advantage from the take-up of the intervention.

Please note that the views expressed in these personal accounts do not necessarily represent the views of Research Autism.


There are numerous personal accounts about the use of holding therapy for people on the autism spectrum on the internet, almost all of them entirely negative.
