Biological Treatments for Autism & PDD: What's Going On? What Can You Do About It? Biological Treatments for Autism & PDD : What's Going On? What Can You Do About It?

by William Shaw

There are a few things that every child with autism/PDD probably has: an inability to digest the proteins in casein/gluten which cause undigested (food) peptides to both enter the blood stream and feed a yeast/candida problem that pockets the intestinal lining causing a leaky gut. There is also the issue of thimerisol (mercury) in the vaccinations, mercury is a serious neurotoxin. Also discussed are the oral antibiotics that are dispensed to our children and destroy the natural flora and good bacteria that maintains our immune system, health and well being.

Dr. Bernard Rimland of the Autism Research Institute says, "There are, however, very few books - like this one - which address the practical, here-and-now biomedical treatments that can bring about dramatic improvement in many autistic individuals...The reader will quickly discover that this book is 'user-friendly'. Its purpose is to clarify, to explain, to guide, and to encourage so that at long last the parents themselves can begin to do what they have always wanted to do - have a real hand in the healing of their autistic child...Thank you, Dr. Shaw!".

Making Sense of Art: Sensory-Based Art Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorders Making Sense of Art: Sensory-Based Art Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorders

Sandra R. Davalos, Editor

Based on the belief that every child has a right to participate in a variety of art experiences appropriate to the child's needs and interests, this resource guide offers visual art activities developed specifically for children with autism, Asperger Syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders who are served in a variety of settings. Focusing on the inherent strenghts and needs of children with these exceptionalities, the book stimulates the senses through manipulation and exploration, arouses curiosity and creativity and develops a sense of mastery.

Activities are grouped by primary modality for ease of use. An introductory page to each activity gives background information about the sense, lists vocabulary and related concepts, basic objectives, and required materials. Easy-to-follow step-by-step procedures are illustrated by line drawings. Recommended for parents and educators alike. Sandra Davalos, M.S.Ed., is an art teacher working with young children and students with exceptionalities.

"As an autistic support teacher, I have found this book to be an excellent resource and an integral resource when planning lessons. It provides objectives, adaptions, extension activities, and explanations of sensory benefits. In addition, the materials required for these activities are common objects that are very easily obtained. This book is a must have for anyone working to help individuals with autism achieve success."

Say Good-Bye to Allergy Related Autism Say Good-Bye to Allergy Related Autism

by Devi S. Nambudripad

Born in India, Dr. Devi Nambudripad has made California her home since 1976. In an effort to solve her personal health problems suffered since childhood, and to help others with similar problems, she conducted research in the U.S. over the past 17 years resulting in the development of a new and effective approach known as Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET), for diagnosis and treatment of allergies of all types. She has pointed the way to perfect health by combining many methods and techniques from different disciplines of medicint including, Allopathic, Kinesiology, Chiropractic, and Oriental medical procedures of accupuncture and accupressure. Dr. Nambudripad has received extensive training in each of these fields both in the United States and in the Orient. To date, thousands of patients who could not find relief elsewhere have been successfully treated for both food and environmental allergies by NAET, including those suffering from allergy-related autism.

Allergies, which are now recognized as a major part of autism, can be treated through NAET without pain or sacrifice. It can be just as successful on a child who cannot follow direction as a normal child. A breakthrough approach of treating autism that is an example of how alternative medicine can offer a solution for some children this disorder, this book helps you identify the causes and allows you to not only eliminate them but also to lead a productive life.

"Real help for autism is hard to find. The search for an answer can be a desparate struggle. Many say there is no answer. This book has real help and real answers.NAET is my best weapon. I have seen it work miracles." __Dr. David I. Minkoff, M.D., Board Certified in Pediatrics.
