Dr. Chez, based on his 15-20 years as a Board Certified pediatric neurologist, weighs in strongly on the value and shortcomings in all of them. His own medical colleagues may be in for a bit of a shock in his criticism of mainstream medicine's care of children on the autism spectrum. Likewise, advocates of some (but not all) alternative approaches will not be pleased reading his views. But everyone ought to read them.
Dr. Chez is a big believer in treating indivdual patients individually but a theme throughout the book is the emergence of distinct autism sub-types. Dr. Chez argues that each can can call for sharply different interventions.
