Essential Reading May 2 2011
By Abbey Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is such an important book. Since a close friend's daughter developed late-onset autism, I've been reading everything about treatments that I can get my hands on, and there's nothing else like this available. With autism rates growing so quickly, people have to start thinking outside the box, and this book is the place to start. Every parent, relative, or friend of a child with autism should be considering every treatment available and weighing their merits seriously. Here are some of the therapies and subjects discussed in the book:

-Antiepileptic Treatments
-ABA
-Art Therapy
-Dietary interventions
-Homeopathy
-Leaky gut and autism
-Neurofeedback
-Speech-language therapy
-Nutritional supplementation

There are many more. Carefully researched but very readable, this is a book for parents, medical professionals, or anyone who wants to improve the life of an autistic child they care about. There are so many unknowns surrounding autism--it's thrilling and very encouraging to get an inside view of the progress being made to understand and treat it.

Not exactly what I expected... April 20 2011
By Lee A. Hinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While this is a terrific collection of cutting-edge therapies, what isn't mentioned specifically in the description is that the therapies are predominantly bio-medical, and newer bio-medical at that.

When I purchased it I was seeking teaching and behavioral therapies, to include in IEP requests. The information was intriguing, but there was little I could do with it on my own. So, while "nice to know", the usefulness of the book was a bust. I didn't even see a section on how to find these practioners in your area.

To boot, the interest I do have in biomedical interventions is in hyperbarric chambers and those were not even mentioned.

This is a great book on a vitally important topic. All parents of special kids know what a struggle it is to stay abreast of all the new information out there in order to come up with the best resources possible for the most important thing on the planet -- your kids. This book pulls it all together and is a fantastic tool at just the right time -- NOW!

I went to the library July 17 2012
By grandmasheryl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I, as a grandmother to a perfect 10 yr.old boy with autism, have been keeping lists, notes, phone numbers, websites and the list goes on with the information that is in this book. You may only be looking for one or two certain things right now but trust me, you will end up needing to know more about something-else as time goes on.
I am on Amazon.com right now to BUY this book.
Loving it....

This is a great book and a must read for parents of children with ASD. It provides detailed information about the various therapies and provides parents with options. I highly recommend buying this book.
