The parents of children with autism know that learning about treatments is a full-time job. For parents with limited time, ability, or resources, Ken Siri and Tony Lyons have compiled the latest in autism research and treatment. Exploring the possible causes of autism and presenting novel therapies, medications, and interventions, Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism contains contributions from more than ninety experts on a wide variety of research findings, therapies, models, and multifaceted evaluation and treatment centers.

Revised and fully updated to include the latest developments, this fourth edition includes up-to-date information on mitochondrial, antifungal, and physical therapy treatments; about speech, art, music, and sound therapies; and how diets, HANDLE, indigenous healing, and other exciting new treatments can be used to help your child. It also addresses developing technologies, like the iPad, which provides hundreds of apps that help kids with autism communicate and organize their day, and helps parents keep track of therapy schedules. Filled with case studies and research, Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism is a detailed and informative guide for anyone affected by autism.
