Biomedical Treatment May Be Another Option
I have been interested in biomedical treatment for autism spectrum disorders for several years. I am quite familiar with the challenges a family and patient may face with a diagnosis of autism. I also have observed the benefits biomedical treatment offers.
In hopes of helping other families, I now provide biomedical treatment in my practice. I attended the 2010 Fall and 2011 Spring Autism Research Institute Clinician Seminars and continue to research current theories regarding biomedical treatment of autism. I am in the process of becoming a Fellow of the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs.
Biomedical treatment is not a cure and it is not guaranteed to help every child, but it is an avenue to consider exploring if your child is not responding well to other treatments.
