This book was excellent. I couldn't put it down until I read the entire story. As an occupational therapist, it is interesting to see how the diet is so important in managing and curing?? autism. What an amazing journey this family made towards getting their son out of the cloud of autism.

This book I give credit to significantly improving the life of your autistic child and your entire family. The information in the book wasnt 100% for me, but I would recommend this book to 100% people who are looking to take their first step into treatment of their child.

This book is a great source for all kinds on information on autism. It provides hope for parents that get an early diagnosis and are willing to work hard.

I was given this book by a friend that has an autistic child and when I suspected my children having the condition. I found this book to be like a mothers diary. I also found it to have a liberal approach. Talks alot about how diet and vaccines contribute to her sons autism which is under speculation. I have read better books that are more helpful.

i found this to be more like a mothers diary and not very helpfull. my son is add/pdd with transitional ticks. i did however like the diet info and found it encourging to cry with her knowledge we are not alone and can with early intervention help our children make autism direct them in a field of work and success.

I frantically rushed to the library the day after hearing that my son was diagnosed with Autism and was frustrated that this was the only book on the subject. I read the entire book that night after putting my son to bed. I now thank God for insisting that I read this book by default and I thank Karen for giving me something difficult to muster...HOPE! I'm in my 3rd day of finding out about my son's disorder and since the IFEP is not yet written, this book gave me an opportunity to actually do something...the diet. I hope and pray that it works. Parents with Autistic children or other PDD's MUST read this book as soon as possible!

I am the father of a six year old with autism. Karyn Seroussi has done my daughter a great service by telling the story of her son's struggle with this disorder. I stayed up late many nights reading this book, and can only say it was well worth the effort. My daughter improved in unmistakable ways after we removed casein and gluten from her diet. Karyn gives names, addresses, phone numbers, and urls, as well as a very helpful FAQ section. Anyone who is trying to come to grips with autism simply must read this book. It could change their life for the better. Thank you, Karyn, for helping our daughter. We owe you more than we could ever repay.

Karyn Seroussi's book brings a powerful message to parents of children with autism: you can take control of your child's health through dietary intervention. When our son was diagnosed with autism we were told, 'don't be too optimistic.' Like Karyn, we searched for answers-- and diet has been one of the keys to our son's success.I am thrilled to recommend this book to other parents searching for ways to tame this mysterious illness. Karyn's straightforward approach makes difficult concepts easy to understand. Books like Karyn's will empower parents to not only ask new questions about autism, but to demand better answers.

Karyn has indeed felt the pain, and unlike somepeople who lay down fought against the mainstream medical community to cleanse the fog separating her son from her. Before reading her book I had been following Dr. Rimland's great research(THANKS DR. RIMLAND and to DR. TAYLOR for helping implement DR. Rimland's procedure) but Kayrn and her husband Alan attended to her son with ferocity that only a parent can give an account of. Again great book Ms. Seroussi and give Miles a hug for all of us.

Professionals and parents should put aside whatever they are currently reading and devote a couple of nights to reading this compelling, page-turner of a book. As the mother of a 5 y.o recovering from autism, I have read over 20 books with 'autism' in the title or the description, in addition to many books on health and healing. Though several have been valuable, none compare to Seroussi's vitally important book. It is the first book I've encountered that gets to the heart of autism's etiology and its most crucial treatment--dietary intervention. Without question, I believe this book will one day be cited for single-handedly changing the course of autism.
