One more comment on Continuationa Criteria.

Research shows there is no evidence that a child would improve in years two, three or beyond, if there is little pr no improvement in year one of IBI treatment.
"No evidence" sentence was used by tobacco companies 30 years ago also. May be scientists and "experts" employed by government to create such creative documents as Continuation Criteria could study case of Carly and Nicolas and Simon featured here last year on W-FIVE. And may be then they could draw the conclusions of dependence between availability of treatment and level of functioning. According to our government funded "expertise" Carly, and Nicolas should have their treatment discontinued after six months. They just happen to have parents that did not agree with that and had resources and will to help their kids. Simon was not so lucky. His very carrying parents could not afford the therapy.
