Lighting A Candle- Great sites for getting started learning about biomedical

20130216-20130216-DSC_0118

Starting to learn about biomedical approaches to helping autism can be overwhelming.  I thought I’d share some favorite sites:

I think the simplest overview of biomedical treatments for autism is by Dan Rossignol, MD, FAAFP  http://www.icdrc.org/documents/Rossignol%20simplified%20biomed%20autism%20file%202009.pdf

I love that Dr Rossignol has footnotes that cite all of the studies the form the basis of his suggestions, but keeps the article itself clear and simple.

Websites to learn more in-depth info about a broad range of  treatments to address the underlying biochemical problems that accompany autism.

For a review on published studies that support different biomedical treatments for autism:

TACA-

Different symptoms of autism, and what treatments help alleviate those symptoms

http://www.tacanow.org/family-resources/what-autism-symptoms-mean/

Autism Research Institute:  On the technical side, but has tons of information and recent research about the underlying biochemistry  that accompanies autism, and how it can be helped.

Favorite Blog:

A blog by a mother of a nearly recovered child- very well written and informative on different treatments and the science behind them.

Grants for Biomedical Treatment:

They give grants and provide mentoring to modest income families who’d like to start biomedical treatments for their child.

Measuring Progress
The ATEC is a questionaire that allows parents to track the severity of their child’s autism, and how it is improved through biomedical treatments.

    Thank you for this compilation. My daughter does NOT have cancer again [angelic chorus singing Hallelujah], so I may get started learning about this.

      I am so, so glad for you & your whole family! I can only begin to imagine how you must feel-I might just spend days alternating between crying that that the worry can sleep for awhile, and shouting for joy.
      If you do start reading about biomedical stuff, I’d love to answer any questions you have down the line. 🙂
