    Enlightening and Concerning

    Since I have no prior knowledge or experience with the topic of autism, Hochbien¿s book, Come What May, was both enlightening and concerning. It made me aware that Pervasive Developmental Disorder ¿ Not Otherwise Specified (D.S.M.-IV), can happen to a child who has been normal in every way. Such was the case of her own son, who was two years old when he came down with an illness caused by either a virus or bacteria, it is unknown which, and that lasted for one week. It was after this illness that Hochbein says, ¿he left us.¿ Ronna Hochbien¿s medical background and experience as an Occupational Therapist enabled her to delve further into her son¿s condition in order to go beyond the traditional medical system and produce this much needed reference source that she shares with the reader. Come What May is loaded with invaluable resources and treatment suggestions, both traditional and non-traditional. It covers specific medical tests, therapies, websites, on-line groups, books, organizations, studies and statistics. The book also provides a Case Study in the final chapter. She discusses the controversy surrounding the autism and the vaccine/thimersol issue, and she presents diet related treatments such as the gluten and casein free/specific carbohydrate diet by Elaine Gottschal,BA MSc. Come What May is an invaluable tool that parents with a child with autism should have at their disposal.
