Healing Our Autistic Children: A Medical Plan for Restoring Your Child's Health
Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with a disease on the autism spectrum--including ADD, learning disabilities, Asperger's, Autism, and PDD--making it today's most common childhood disability. While the medical establishment treats autism as a psychiatric condition and prescribes behaviorally based therapies, Dr. Julie A.

NOT recommended. Firstly; autism is not a disease, it is not something that can be healed. I am very tired of every parent with a child with autism trotting out yet another book along the lines of advice on how to 'heal' autism. There is no scientific (accredited) evidence over the food debate; indeed most who speak and write about it do not even know the basics of food science. I do wish publishers would stop producing these books; they do not help parents - only confuse people and raise the hope of a 'cure' for other parents - such writing also portrays autistic people as sick people who need treatment. One star for bothering to publish and using trees to print it on - I would have preferred NO STARS
