Autism Revolution: Breakthrough Strategies for Parents

After years of treating patients and analyzing scientific data, prominent Harvard Medical School researcher and clinician Dr. Martha Herbert offers a revolutionary new view of autism and a transformative strategy for dealing with it. Autism is not a hardwired impairment programmed into a child's genes and destined to remain fixed forever, as we're often told. Instead, it is the result of a cascade of events, many seemingly minor: perhaps a genetic mutation, some toxic exposures, a stressful birth, a vitamin deficiency, and a series of infections. And while other doctors may dismiss your child's physical symptoms – the diarrhea, anxiety, sensory overload, sleeplessness, frequent illnesses or seizures – as coincidental or irrelevant, Dr. Herbert sees them as vital clues to what the underlying problems are, and how to help. In this lecture she share how to approach autism as a collection of problems that can be overcome – and talents that can be developed. Each success you achieve gives your child more room to become healthy and to thrive.
