• Neurological Abnormalities in ASD
Children with autism have been found to have many neurological abnormalities. These include differences in brain function, structure and connectivity, neurotransmitter and metabolic abnormalities and electrical disturbances in the brain including seizures. This talk will review some of the important aspects of these neurological abnormalities and their treatments.

One Talk Covering Two Common Issues
• Mitochondrial Disorders in Autism
There is strong evidence that many children with autism also have a mitochondrial disorder, which means that the mitochondria produce less fuel for the body and for the brain. This talk will discuss the challenges of how to test for mitochondrial disorders, as well as the current treatments available for them.
• Seizures in Autism
A New National Survey on Treatments: Approximately 25% of children and adults with autism have seizures, and another 50% have sub-clinical seizures that are often undetected but may affect their intellectual functioning. This presentation will briefly review seizure issues in autism, and then present the new results of a national survey of over 500 children and adults with seizures, with a comparison of the benefits and possible side effects of many medical, dietary, and nutritional treatments.
