    This book is a uniquely valuable tool for any parent or health care practitioner who wants to help developmentally impaired children improve.  Dr. Shaw does not accept the "mainstream" view that autism is incurable and there is no need for medical treatment.  How could he?  He has seen too many children improve dramatically when their doctor or parent finally provided the proper treatment for their individual biochemistry.

    This book provides a detailed discussion of the various biochemical defects that may be present in autism, covers how to identify which ones a given child has, and provides clinically validated information on how to treat these problems.  Dr. Shaw's scholarship in combining the best of the scholarly medical literature, alternative medical information and popular publications provides a unique - and uniquely useful - resource for people who want their children to get better.

    This book covers metabolic and digestive abnormalities, heavy metal intoxication, vaccinations and the overuse of antibiotics as potential causes of autism.  It outlines how to tell which ones are relevant for a given child.  Then it goes into the details of what to do.  It is a roadmap for making these children well.

    Think your child needs a gluten-free, casein-free diet?  This book tells you how to do it, what to expect, and where to get detailed information, including where to find recipes and ingredients.  Think you might want to try a powerful prescription drug? This book contains tables showing how likely the drug is to help your child, and how likely it is to cause problems.  Similar tables are also included for popular nutritional supplements.  Think your child has yeast problems?  Detailed instructions are given on how to treat these, what choices you have for treatment agents, and how to give them.  It also includes discussions of children who got better on these treatments!

What Parents have to Say about Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD

For me, the proof of this book's worth has been my child who speaks two languages fluently, plays appropriately and is a joy to behold.

The parent of a recovered child in New Jersey.

Dr. Shaw takes the complicated and often convoluted theory, and discoveries of some of the most brilliant researchers, physicians, scientists and other experts in their fields, and explain, dissects and relates their research and findings in a way that just about anyone can understand, regardless of education or background.

The parent of an autistic child in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Absolutely the best!  Following my son's diagnosis of autism, I went through every book on the subject I could find.  This was the book which turned my son's life around.

A parent from Ohio.

A must-read for anyone with family or friends on the spectrum.  This is one fo the most comprehensive, up to date research works available to parents of autistic individuals.  This book gives critical information on treatments that ARE effective in helping individuals diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorders.

A parent from Rockville, Maryland.

Autism is very complicated and not well understood.  Dr. Shaw is a living legend!  He includes information from different parents, medical analysis, lab work, theories, etc.  Read it and learn!  Fight for your child!

A parent from Israel.

What Reviewers have to Say about Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD

Dr. Shaw has performed a great and much needed service for the parents of autistic children - and the physicians who work with autistic children - by publishing this book.  There are, however, very few books like this one, which addresses the practical, here and now biomedical treatments that can bring about dramatic improvements in many autistic individuals.  Thank you, Dr. Shaw!
