Harland Larson, Swede Larson Fraudulent PHD
Swede Larson, Harland Larson or whatever he is calling himself today preys on the parents and family of children with autism. He has published a book full of misinformation while fraudulently portraying himself as a PHD and a full member of the APA.
He has spent a considerable amount of time trying to scrub his lies from the internet but we have documented each of them. Here is the archive of him claiming to hold a PHD in Cognitive Psychology: https://web.archive.org/web/20161110115804/http://braintutoringutah.com/the-brain-works-programs/online-courses/guruauthor/view/1-professor-swede-larson The book in question titled "Desperate Parents: The real reasons behind why bright kids can’t learn!" is full of worthless nonsense and only does a disservice to the parents of children with autism. If you google his name one of the first results will link to an Autism forum where he attempted to peddle his book of lies. He has since edited out all his replies but it is still a good resource for seeing how much of a dishonest charlatan this man really is.
Since being called out for his blatantly false representations he now goes by "PHD (ABD)" which stands for PhD – All But Dissertation is a fake pseudo title that means you do not have a PhD. He never finished his degree (submitting a dissertation is a huge detail were research PhDs are involved).
Reason of review: Bad quality.
