ruth, I would just be hesitant to lay attachment issues at the feet of your autism. It is possible you know to have a crappy childhood AND be autistic.
With my work, attachment issues are definitely not going to cause the development of the autistic neuroanatomy. --It ain't gonna help either of course!
I know you have an extreme fondness of Freudianism, and I would imagine Ms. Savlov is sincerely trying to help her clients. But taking a Psychoanalytic approach to sensory issues isn't going to get anyone anywhere.

But considering the tone coming from most of the members in this thread (myself included) I would be concerned that Ms. Savlov would receive a less than warm welcome which could potentially cause her to become defensive, ending in arguments rather than any true communication.
If others would be supportive in sending her an invitation, then I say go for it.

She and I have been chatting and it is frustrating. She will state the opposite of what she has said in her blog, to seem agreeable I think. Then when I asked her if she only treated low functioning, Kanner-esque kids, she came back saying I called HER Kanner-esque.
Lastly - we were talking about communication and I mentioned Amanda Baggs. Savlov says she's never heard of her, like she's just some friend of mine.
I would've at least done a quick google to save face before saying I'd never heard of someone. Just my .02
