About this title

Synopsis:

This book shows that autism can be treated by reducing the neurological inflammation that is part of the disease process, rather than simply masking the symptoms with drugs like Ritalin and Prozac. The authors have have seen autistic behaviors improve dramatically or disappear completely with appropriate medical treatment. The book reviews the medical literature regarding the biological nature of the disease, including the potential connection between vaccines and autism. The foreword is by Katie Wright, whose parents―Bob and Suzanne Wright―founded Autism Speaks.

From the Publisher:

A once rare disease, autism is now a worldwide epidemic affecting 1.8 million American children, making it the most common developmental disability-more common than Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and mental retardation combined. Changing the Course of Autism has the potential to revolutionize the way this disease is perceived and managed by showing that autism can be treated as a medical disease, rather than a behavioral disorder. In this groundbreaking book, the authors describe specific methods that they have used to successfully diagnose and treat the underlying medical conditions of autistic children.

The foreword is by Katie Wright Hildebrand, whose parents, Bob and Suzanne Wright, founded the organization Autism Speaks after Katie's son was diagnosed with autism. As CEO of NBC/Universal, Bob made Autism Speaks the biggest autism organization in the country, and Katie and her parents have worked tirelessly to raise autism awareness.
