As an Occupational Therapist who has been in practice since the 1980s I am thrilled to have Envisioning a Brighter Future Interventions that Work for Children and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder in my library. When talking with families who are newly diagnosed with ASD I want to give them the most up to date information about what is out there that can help their children. This book has it all from developmental optometry to the latest in biomedical approaches. Chapter 17 is particularly helpful to the parent whose child has been recently diagnosed and is faced with so much information. Patty Lemer prioritizes what types of therapies and environmental modifications families should explore. She even let's people know what they can do before they seek professional advise. Thank you Patty for putting it all together.

On the subject of autism spectrum disorders Envisioning a Bright Future is absolutely the best and only resource you need! Keep it next to you at all times to refer to or use to educate your clients about current non-drug interventions. Patricia Lemer, the brilliant editor, actually coined the phrase "autism spectrum." She knows this territory like no one else. Lemer and her contributing experts present their material with precision that professionals will respect and clarity for which parents and relatives will be grateful. Learn about effective treatments based on nutrition, detoxification, sensory integration, motor development, visual and auditory processing, social-emotional adjustment, subtle energy and more. The knowledge available here is encyclopedic in scope and depth.

As a Brain Gym consultant, a Masgutova Neuro-sensory-motor Reflex Integration Specialist, and a Family Constellations facilitator, I am thrilled to see information about these remarkable resources in reader- and user-friendly form. Lemer's book is the only place I know of where you can find a thorough presentation of Dietrich Klinghardt's protocol and his explanation of the relevance of Family Constellations to autism.

Those who want to be fully informed about the history of and treatment options for today's autism epidemic will read the book from cover to cover. Other's will find an exceptionally thorough index to lead them to the exact information they need. Don't miss the editor's overview and her chapters on total load theory and prioritizing interventions. This wonderful book is a must-have for every conscientious professional and every concerned parent.
