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.

Patty is the Executive Director and co-founder of the non-profit Developmental Delay Resources, and she has been working with these kinds of kids for over 40 years. She's seen it all; she knows what works.
The way she told me to read the book was to read the last chapter first: "Prioritizing Therapies for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders". She's in process of writing another book that expands on this chapter, but I'll give you the short version of it here:
* Immediately eliminate ALL possible toxic exposures by eating organic foods, eliminating furniture that off-gasses formaldehyde and flame retardants, buying only natural fibers for anything that touches the skin, buying green cleaning products and art supplies, eliminating tobacco smoke, reducing exposure to EMFs and boosting the immune system.
* Address structural problems with a chiropractor, cranioscacral therapist or osteopath. Many of these children had a traumatic birth experience (such as long labor, C-section, use of forceps, etc.) that in turn cause blockages and imbalances of organs, fluids and energy.
* Implement a biomedical intervention that corrects nutritional deficiencies and includes a special diet such as the Body Ecology Diet, Specific Carbohydrate Diet or Feingold diet.
* Detoxify the body after the gut has been stabilized in step 4 under strict supervision.
* Add in sensory therapies.Read more ›
