Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Unlike drugs, dietary supplements don't require FDA approval before marketing. Because the manufacturer determines the dosage and they're often without scientific support from peer-reviewed journals, it can be difficult to ascertain a supplement's true effectiveness. Still, there is little doubt that nutritional supplements can play a helpful role in addressing health concerns. Dietitian Converse focuses on special-needs children and outlines various nutritional tools parents can use to reduce or eliminate medications, tackling such issues as special-needs babies, growth impairments, and attention and anxiety problems. Her style is a bit scientific, but she is comprehensive and realistic. Parents seeking a holistic method to assist their special-needs child will find much value here; recommended. — "Parenting Short Takes," Booksmack! 1/20/11
