When their nineteen-month-old son, Miles, was diagnosed with autism, Karyn Seroussi, a writer, and her husband, a scientist, fought back with the only weapons at their disposal: love and research. Consulting medical papers, surfing the Web, and networking with other parents, they traced the onset of their child's problems to an immune system breakdown that coincided with his vaccinations. As a result, his digestive system was unable to break down certain proteins, which in turn led to abnormal brain development. So Karyn and her husband got to work -- Karyn implementing their program at home while her husband tested his theories at the scientific lab where he worked. Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder is an inspiring and suspenseful chronicle of how one couple empowered themselves to challenge the medical establishment that promised no hope -- and found a cure for their child. Here are the explanations and treatments they so carefully researched and discovered, a wealth of crucial tools and hands-on information that can help other parents reverse the effects of autism and PDD, including step-by-step instructions for the removal of dairy and gluten from the diet, special recipes, and an explanation of the roles of the key players in autism research.

I am putting the bulk of the information contained in this guidebook in checklist, chart, and reproducible, fill-in-the blank form so that they can be copied and consumed as needed. Many other informational pamphlets are written in narrative form, such as chapters and paragraphs, which is not conducive to being able to use and consume information in daily life situations. I had always wanted a comprehensive handy guidebook of reference-type information and consumable charts and forms but was never able to find one. So I have taken the opportunity to compile such a guidebook. This handbook will give you assistance and general information regarding itinerant home and community special education at the early intervention level. I’ve included a section of common occurrences and situations and lists of community services, resources, related programs, and phone/contact information. Anyone who is involved with a child with ASD—whether as teacher, therapist, parent, or other family member—can benefit from this guide, and you are welcome to copy and use all templates provided as needed.
