    HELP OUR "AUTISM IS TREATABLE" CAMPAIGN
    WE NEED YOUR HELP http://www.autismsolutioncenter.com/signup

    As you have read in the many media reports of the so-called "Autism Summit," (a meeting in
    Washington DC in late November), the Federal Government and several multi-million dollar autism
    groups hope to be able to develop some effective treatments for autism in 5 to 10 years.

    NONSENSE! We need to tell them, and the media, and the tens of thousands of families of autistic
    children who don't know about our Defeat Autism Now! procedures, that many effective treatments are
    available NOW. If your child has recovered from autism, or improved dramatically, as a result of our
    Defeat Autism Now! project, and you would be willing to speak to the media about your child's
    recovery, WE NEED YOUR HELP. The Autism Research Institute has begun compiling a master list of
    families throughout the United States who are willing to talk to the media about their child's
    recovery. Our press release announcing our "Autism IS Treatable" campaign will go out in early 2004
    to both the major media (the national television networks, the New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek,
    Time etc.). as well as to many hundreds of local TV stations and local newspapers. We hope to be
    able to give local reporters (as well as national reporters) the names and phone numbers of families
    who are willing to be interviewed for television, newspaper and magazine reports.

    We must get the word out in order to help the thousands of autistic children who are now being
    treated with toxic drugs like Ritalin, Risperidal, etc. If your child has recovered or improved
    markedly, and you're willing to help, please provide us with your name, address, phone number and
    email address below. Your identity will be protected. Only media people seeking families in your
    locality will be able to contact you.

    If there were some sort of web site like this for conventional medicine (of any type), the alties
    would be all over it.

    Now, if I take a nice, cynical look at the URL above, I might retitle it the "Bernard Rimland
    Support Program." And he's just not a guy whose influence I'd like to see increase.

    correct. "If I have not seen as far as others, it is because giants were standing on my
    shoulders." (Hal Abelson, MIT)

    And there ARE lots of good legitimate places for kids to get treatment for autism from qualified
    OT/PT', SLP's and other specialists. But too many people have wasted their time trying find a
    "magic" cure (like "oral chelation", which is dangerous, or cranial sacral which is just plain
    stupid)... or some phantom cause.

    In this article is it sad to see that parents put their kids through some nasty medical tests for
    some fruitless legal wrangling... a waste of time and money, and a really awful thing to do to kids:
