Are Alternative Treatments For Autism Scientifically Valid?

I just read a very interesting blog post at Autism Watch.  It was written by James R. Laidler, M.D., and entitled “Through the Looking Glass: My Involvement With Autism Quackery.”  It was very thought provoking and calls into question some of the information on this blog!  I think you will find it to be very interesting.

By-the-way, speaking of alternative treatments, I just posted a page about dairy free diets.  There also is a new page about the importance of maintaining good schedules for autistic children.

Great Source of Information About Autism Spectrum Disorder

I was just looking at the Autism Society Inland Empire web site.  It is a great source of information about Autism Spectrum Disorder.  One thing that may be particularly helpful to some people is their 2010 Resource Guide which lists over 800 Autism-related resources on 200 pages.  More than 75 topic areas, including Education, Advocacy, Therapies, Recreational Opportunities, Medical/Dental, and Colleges are covered.  It can be downloaded from their Resources page,  http://www.ieautism.org/resources

Helpful Tips For Living With Autistic Children
