Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Lisa Lewis’ contribution to the understanding of biomedical aspects of autism have been considerable. . . . Her new book also concentrates on the practical applications of knowledge and understanding. It is well-researched, well written, and very much needed."
Paul Shattock, Autism Research Unit, University of Sunderland, Sunderland, England
 

"The writings of Lisa Lewis have made a huge impact on the field of autism. As an educator and a parent, Dr. Lewis has been instrumental in describing the issues of gluten and casein sensitivities, and how these problems affect the behavior of autistic individuals. She has changed the lives of many autistic individuals and their families. Through this book, Dr. Lewis will likely change the lives of many others."
Stephen Edelson, PhD, Director, Center for the Study of Autism, Salem, OR

 

“What will change, and is changing, the minds of the medical establishment is activist efforts by intelligent, well-informed and highly motivated parents like Mary Callahan, Lisa Lewis and many others. . . ."
Dr. Bernard Rimland, Autism Research Institute
