OSHKOSH, Wis., Dec. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Caravel Autism Health, a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of children on the autism spectrum, opened the doors this week to a new clinic in Oshkosh, WI. The center is focused on early intervention for young children and offers evaluation, diagnosis, therapy, and family support services. 

Caravel’s clinical professionals specialize in Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. ABA therapy is evidence-based treatment that helps children with autism develop skills, create connections, and gain confidence. Rooted in positive reinforcement, ABA therapy is recognized for its effectiveness by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

“ABA is life-changing,” explained Caravel CEO Mike Miller. “It helps children reach their greatest potential, but there is a shortage of providers. At Caravel, we believe that children deserve the best possible care, so we are investing in communities to bring resources and expertise to families where this need is present.” 

Caravel was founded in Green Bay, WI. The new Oshkosh center is led by clinic director Abby Amacher, MA, BCBA, LBA. Amacher has worked with children with autism since 2008. “We are committed to delivering specialized care that yields the best outcomes, especially in areas that have been underserved,” said Amacher. “So we are thrilled to open a center to serve families across Winnebago and Green Lake counties. The new Oshkosh clinic dramatically expands our capacity to help local families by creating an environment outside the home where children can get treatment and work on peer skills.” 

Caravel’s clinic is located at 1306 South Main Street. Caravel invites parents and others with questions about autism diagnosis and ABA therapy to call 608-888-2663 or visit

Autistic people have fought the inclusion of ABA in therapy for us since before Autism Speaks, and other non-Autistic-led autism organizations, started lobbying legislation to get it covered by insurances and Medicaid. 

ABA is a myth originally sold to parents that it would keep their Autistic child out of an institution. Today, parents are told that with early intervention therapy their child will either be less Autistic or no longer Autistic by elementary school, and can be mainstreamed in typical education classes. ABA is very expensive to pay out of pocket. Essentially, Autism Speaks has justified the big price tag up front will offset the overall burden on resources for an Autistic’s lifetime. The recommendation for this therapy is 40 hours a week for children and toddlers.

The original study that showed the success rate of ABA to be at 50% has never been replicated. In fact, the study of ABA by United States Department of Defense was denounced as a failure. Not just once, but multiple times. Simply stated: ABA doesn’t workIn study after repeated study: ABA (conversion therapy) doesn’t work. 

What more recent studies do show: Autistics who experienced ABA therapy are at high risk to develop PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions. Historically, the autism organizations promoting ABA as a cure or solution have silenced Autistic advocates’ opposition. ABA is also known as gay conversion therapy.

The ‘cure’ for Autistics not born yet is the prevention of birth. 

The ‘cure’ is a choice to terminate a pregnancy based on ‘autism risk.’ The cure is abortion. This is the same ‘cure’ society has for Down Syndrome. 

This is eugenics 2021. Instead of killing Autistics and disabled children in gas chambers or ‘mercy killings’ like in Aktion T4, it’ll happen at the doctor’s office, quietly, one Autistic baby at a time. Different approaches yes, but still eugenics and the extinction of an entire minority group of people.

Fact: You can’t cure Autistics from being Autistic.

Fact: You can’t recover an Autistic from being Autistic.

Fact: You can groom an Autistic to mask and hide their traits. Somewhat. … however, this comes at the expense of the Autistic child, promotes Autistic Burnout (this should not be confused with typical burnout, Autistic Burnout can kill Autistics), and places the Autistic child at high risk for PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions.

[Note: Autism is NOT a disease, but a neurodevelopmental difference and disability.]

Fact: Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.
