  • The research behind 14 biomedical treat-ments for autism, and learn how to test if a treatment is likely to be beneficial or not.
  • How to develop a personalized treatment plan, in collaboration with your physician.
  • New research suggesting a new cause for 12% of autism cases.
  • The maternal risk factors in half of mothers of children with autism that increase their risk 50x of having a child with autism, and learn how to reduce that risk.
  • The results of a new major study of a novel vitamin/mineral supplement for children and adults with autism.
  • How to safely determine if a child has a high body burden of toxic metals, and how to safe-ly remove them if present.
