    This is the Cure!

    I am so excited for other parents that this information is finally in print. We started on this therapy in October of 2001 with our then 2 1/2 yr old son who was diagnosed severe PDD-NOS, he was non-verbal and his "stimming" would continue for hours on end. 60 days on the GFCF diet, he said, ¿Mommy" for the 1st time. Today, we can't get him to stop talking. This month marks 13 months on the program. We have seen more improvement than we could ever have imagined. At this rate, we have no doubt that our son will have a complete recovery. Thank you DAN! Doctors. Thank you, Dr. McCandless for publishing this information for the world to read. We have our son back! This is the most amazing book about intervention on the market today.

    Best autism book for sharing with your pediatrician

    This book is a very concise and easy to read guidebook for parents and physicians that are just beginning biomedical intervention with autism. Sadly, we live in a time when autism which previously affected 1:10,000 children now affects 1 :150. Dr McCandless explains what is happening in these children's bodies in such a way that any physician or parent should be able to understand.

    A MUST read for all people dealing with autism

    Dr. McCandless has put together the best book available for treatment options for autism spectrum disorder. I have read many books over the last four years since my sons diagnosis of autism, and this by far is the most informative and easy to read. It puts all the information available for biomedical treatments into one great book. Every parent, grandparent, caregiver and physician that deals with autism should read this book from cover to cover ASAP!!
