Dr. Temple Grandin is one of the most well recognized names in the world of autism. She is a frequent speaker at Future Horizons autism conferences and has a feature-rich website. Her website just got better, though, with the addition of a new question and answer section.
The first question, from Nicholas, touches on the sometimes-controversial topic of biomedical interventions. Nicholas asks Dr. Grandin whether she thinks that autism is reversible with biomedical treatments.
The following is an excerpt from Dr. Grandin’s answer:
“Some biomedical interventions can bring about some significant improvements. Some of the most effective ones would be dairy free, wheat/gluten free and sugar free. These dietary interventions work for some people and for some they do not. Usually about 20% see results.”
