More About the Author
Ms. Lemer lectures internationally on viewing developmental delays, including autism, PDD, AD(H)D, LD, OCD, NLD and others, as a spectrum of disorders. She discourages labeling of children, and specializes in combining developmentally appropriate practice with sound theory. She is especially interested in combining a biomedical approach with vision and other movement and sensory-based therapies. Ms Lemer lives in Pittsburgh, PA and is the mother of an adult daughter and the grandmother of Penelope, born in August, 2006.

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.
Mary Rentschler, M.Ed., [...]
Wonderfully edited by Patricia S. Lemer, MEd, NCC, the various authors of each chapter provide
numerous practical solutions to help children and adults having ASD along with information
useful to a better understanding of ASD. My child has tried several of the suggested solutions
with success (ie, vision therapy, neurofeedback, and sensory integration therapy). Many of the
other approaches discussed were new to me such as the Allergy Elimination Diet and the Specific
Carbohydrate Diet, the latter of which my family is about to implement in the form of the GAPS
diet. "Each therapy or intervention that alleviates a risk factor lessons the load [on the
individual], freeing up the body's energy for physiological, cognitive, sensory, language, and
social-emotional development to take place", as noted in Chapter 5 "A Biomedical Approach to
ASD" co-authored by Ms. Lemer and Kelly Dorfman, MS. I highly recommend this book for
anyone trying to rid themselves or a loved one of ASD.
