About Jonathan Alderson

Jonathan Alderson

Jonathan Alderson is the founder and director of the Canadian-based leading-edge autism treatment program Intensive Multi-Treatment Intervention (IMTI). He is the author of Challenging the Myths of Autism (Harper Collins, 2011) which has inspired educators and parents alike to consider a radical re-framing of how we think about and treat people diagnosed with autism and which was awarded the 2012 International Book Award for Best Parent-Resource. After completing his Masters of Education at Harvard University, an internship with the Harvard Family Research Project, and experience as the Curriculum Specialist Coordinator with Teach For America in Houston, Texas, Alderson now specializes in merging behavioural, cognitive, and biological treatments of autism through the integrated IMTI model he developed.
