These conditions are a great challenge for those suffering from them and their families. The fact that so many books have been written about different approaches to dealing with these have been written, testifies to the fact that science is till learning about autism.
Nevertheless, the approach of Whole Person Medicine has certainly been appreciated by many these patients and their families.
My approach is to take a full and detailed history of the situation since it first became apparent. I offer nutritional and homeopathic support and I generally refer patients for an assessment by Hephzibah Kaplan, who is an art therapist with a great deal of experience of working with autistic children. I pay a great deal of attention to the family dynamic and liase with other professionals involved in the management of the patient.
