HOPEFUL BOOK, BUT NOT VERY SCIENTIFIC

It is obvious that McCandless is passionate about what she thinks about and writes about, but she is buying into Shaw, Rimland and others who favor treating the symptoms of autism instead of being brave enough to really look at the root causes. Lisa Lewis and the diet people deserve no respect whatsoever.
Let's take a deeper look at autism and stop pretending we know all the answers. I have a son who is severely autistic with CD.
