« Age of Autism Science Summary: Anxiety, Sensory Over-Responsivity, and Gastrointestinal Problems in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. | Main | Call to Action: Ask Congressman Issa to Schedule The Autism Hearing »
On September 8th in Chicago, we parents of children with numerous health issues, will be honoring Dr. Anju Usman, to recognize the outstanding medical care she has provided to thousands of children with complex medical issues and support her ability to continue to provide appropriate medical care for children, including those with autism.
While emerging scientific evidence has determined that children with autism have a higher incidence of immune dysregulation, gastrointestinal disease, mitochondrial dysfunction, and other complex health issues, many physicians are unaware of these underlying medical conditions and they can remain untreated.
There are dedicated physicians, such as Dr. Usman, who have come under criticism for their willingness to look beyond the autism label to provide appropriate diagnosis and treatment for the various medical conditions. Their ability to treat children individually while incorporating findings from emerging science may be threatened. Our children deserve to have access to physicians who are willing to properly identify and treat all their medical conditions.
Please join us to celebrate Dr. Usman's work and dedication to our children. The future of our children's medical care depends on all of us participating. If you are local, please attend or make a financial gift. For our long distance families and friends, we would be honored by your donations and your support. DonateHERE.
