How we choose the websites we feature….

Today we explain in more detail how and why we chose the websites we have listed in our resource library.


How we choose the websites we feature….


It is important for us to be transparent about how we are choosing our websites – it’s also important for our community to know how we do this. We need to be clear about when and were we are getting paid for things (only through Amazon Affiliates).


There are several key things we ask ourselves when we chose a website. They can been seen in this chart here:

Firstly, and most importantly, we must have had personal experience with the website or product. That could be us as a LHA team or any of our contributors. It has to be a resource that either ourselves as a team or our contributors have used, read, trialled first-hand, as well as something that we think will be useful to other families or professionals.  

We want to ensure the resources are evidence-based, however we also know there are lots of treatments and services that have less of an evidence base that have worked for others (sometimes called practice-based evidence). We want to feature them but, of course, we are always transparent. This could be around the limited evidence or that we advise caution when looking into those resources – however we don’t want to discount them completely.

We will never be taking money to have websites featured on our page – we make our money in other ways. These include treating children face-to-face and also Amazon Affiliate marketing. LHA is not a paid library and never will be.

Do you think there are websites we are missing that might be helpful for others?

Let us know and we can review it and see if it might fit our criteria and be useful for others! We are always on the look out for any resources that can help our families.
