Foods For Thought: An Insight Into Special Diets

Diets: caveman, paleo, “ape,” low carb, low glycemic, zone, ketogenic, specific carbohydrate, GAPS, “grain brain,” “wheat belly”diet — why is there so much interest in these diets? What are they targeting? Is it gut dysbiosis/inflammation or food allergies, or insulin dysregulation, or gluten intolerance, the optimal primate food, or something else? Is there perhaps a [...]

Coping with the Confusion of Autism Treatment and Care

As an older sister to a young man with autism, it’s important for me to connect with the autism community. I maintain friendships, read and write posts, give talks, and try to keep up with research findings too. And so, while reading a recent essay on autism causes and treatments, I recognized a description of one of [...]

Marijuana for Autism Sparks Debate

As the the 2012 election year shifts into full gear, the subject of legalizing marijuana has yet again come to the forefront.

Outside of the realm of politics, marijuana [...]

Anti-Psychotics for Autism Set to Flood the Market

In my ongoing research of autism treatments, I have been delighted to find that some of the most effective means of addressing autism involve reconnecting with the natural world, the physical body and the creative self.

Facial Recognition Breakthrough for those with Autism

Continuing our exploration of color and autism, Scottish optometrist Ian Jordan has developed the very first treatment for face blindness. Face blindness, also known as prosopagnosia, impairs the ability of people to recognize faces and facial expressions. Common in autism, it feeds into the difficulties of reading facial expressions and social cues. Experts believe the [...]

Changing Attitudes Towards Repetitive Behaviors and Autism

Repetitive behaviors in those with autism have long been viewed as something to be eradicated. My own son’s problems in school began with his teacher’s intolerance for his incessant rocking and pencil tapping in class. These compulsions got him habitually thrown into the hall, and eventually out of school.  But times are changing and so [...]

    Once again, our nation has been rocked by another young adult conducting a murderous rampage that ends multiple lives, including his own. My heart sank when the shooter in the latest tragedy, Elliot Roger, was identified as having Asperger’s Syndrome (AS).
