The parents of children with autism know that learning about treatments is a full-time job. For parents with limited time, ability, or resources, Ken Siri and Tony Lyons have compiled the latest in autism research and treatment. Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism contains contributions from more than eighty experts on a variety of therapies, models, and multifaceted evaluation and treatment centers. Revised to reflect the new developments in the last year, the 2012 2013 edition includes up-to-date information on antiepileptic, antifungal, and art therapy treatments; about aquatic, art, music, and drama therapies; and how diets, chelation, indigenous healing, and other exciting new treatments can be used to help your child. It also addresses developing technologies, like the iPad, which provides apps that help kids with autism communicate and organize their day, and helps parents keep track of therapy schedules. Filled with case studies and research, Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism is a detailed and informative guide for anyone affected by autism.
