Information for every parent of a child with autism, updated and revised with the latest developments.

The parents of children with autism know that research is a full-time job. For parents with limited time, ability, or resources to do this, Ken Siri and Tony Lyons have compiled the latest in autism research and treatment. Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism contains contributions from more than eighty experts on a variety of therapies, models, and multifaceted evaluation and treatment centers. Each contributor provides readers with an easy-to-understand description of the topic, including its scientific rationale, development, risks, and benefits. Siri and Lyons include the therapies of the future, focusing on current clinical trials, ongoing research, and the researchers who are striving to better understand autism and find new treatments.

Revised and updated to reflect the new developments in the last year, the 2011–2012 edition explains possible causes of autism, including food allergies and gastrointestinal diseases in children. An extensive variety of therapies is discussed, from dietary interventions that reduce sugars and remove gluten to animal assisted therapies that place a dog or cat in the care of the autistic individual to help enhance social and developmental skills. Filled with numerous case studies and more than seventy distinct subjects, Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism is a detailed and informative guide for anyone affected by autism. 94 black-and-white illustrations.

I too would really love to win this book. We have tried everything, ( & I mean EVERYTHING) we can "get our hands on" with our 16 year old daughter with severe autism, but all we get are waiting lists & LOTS of frustration. But we are in Oklahoma after all- The waiting list state.

Hi. I am a member of a spanish speaking autism support group in Dallas GMANOS) and our community does not have to much information about therapies for autism, I would love to win this book and share the information with all of the parents, to encourages them to start learning about it and help our kids.

Cathy Wachtel

I would really love to win this book, not only do we have an adult son with Autism, we have an 11 year old niece with Autism. I also work with students with Special Needs, A few of the students in the class have Autism too.

This couldn't have come at a better time! I need this book more than ever. Took my son (who's 12 with PDD-nos) to the neurologist and he told me to "stop looking for miracles", none of the methods I was trying (biomeds, hbot etc) were "ever going to work". I should be thankful for his present condition and "be grateful he wasn't more severe". The best was when he claimed I was on a "quest for perfection" which pissed me off so bad.....he forgets that he himself said to me "oh he's looking great, have you done something different with him?" HELP!

Tiffany Sanchez

I would love to win this book. Not only to read for myself but to share with others. My son does not have Autism but he does have ADHD,Bipolar Disorder, Asthma and Allergies. I would love to read this as a follow up to books about the similarities of autism and adhd. Such as "The ADHD Autism Connection" by Diane M. Kennedy and "Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies" by Kenneth Bock M.D., and Cameron Stauth. Thanks.

The primary goal of our local autism group is to make the most current information available to local families through our extensive lending library. We have the 2010-2011 edition and would LOVE to add the "most current" edition. The book would benefit many families through our library. Hope we are lucky enough to be picked!

I would love to have the new one! I passed the last one on to another family who had just recently been entered into the world of Autism! The past book was phenomenal! And as much as I learned from it, so much has changed in the past year and it is so hard to keep up with all of the new treatments available! I am sure this new book is even better!

I would still love to win this book to read and then pass on. Thank you for all you do Age of Autism staff.

Thankfully, we've made a lot a progress through many different protocols and therapies. We're not finished yet, so getting to know what the latest research has brought forth just may be the key to getting over the "fininsh line." Hoping to win the book.
