    A Much Needed "Encyclopedia" of Autism Treatment

    Ken Siri's and Tony Lyon's new book "Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism 2010-2011" should be required reading for anyone whose life is affected by autism. In one volume, Ken and Tony have brought together mainstream and alternative treatments, long-standing protocols and cutting edge therapies. There truly is something for everyone here and, even for an old-timer like myself, some new things to learn. Even with respect to "traditional" therapies, such as speech therapy, the chapter's author's talk about innovations in their field and offer practical advice to parents (disclosure: Lavinia Pereira, one of the chapter authors, has treated my son). Each chapter is authored by someone with particular knowledge of the chapter's subject - the specialists discussing their areas of expertise, rather than a generalist trying to take it all on.

    I appreciate that the book is organized into small, self-contained chapters so that a busy parent can can pick up the book, soak up a chapter or two, and easily come back to it later. This book is a real gift to the autism community and, in that spirit, a portion of the proceeds are being donated to AutismOne.
