Autism spectrum disorder and CBT

I often talk about the usefulness of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) in treating mental disorders, and my optimism is usually warranted. But CBT is not a panacea, and individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are systematically left out of treatment studies. This means that, for all its usefulness, we know close to nothing about how well CBT works for individuals with ASD. Another consequence is that we leave it up to each individual therapist to adapt therapy, which is challenging.
