The greatest hurdle to progress in autism research has been the unwillingness of so many to accept a paradigm shift.  Autism is treatable.

Children with autism are medically ill, not psychologically challenged. Identifying and eliminating problematic foods, chemicals, and toxins while correcting nutritional deficiencies and providing the nutrients necessary for normal growth and development is a reasonable and effective strategy.  It is critical that parents become educated and informed medical consumers.

Answering questions and questioning answers captures the essence of our mission at CARE.

Research studies often have design flaws or overstated conclusions, sound bites on news stories often fail to tell the whole story, and many interventions are truly unsuccessful for some children, while highly beneficial for others simply because there are unique subtypes within the broad spectrum of autism. Advances in treatment and improvements in outcome require an appreciation of the unique needs of each patient and a thorough understanding of the wide range of treatment options available.  CARE offers state of the art treatment and collaborates with researchers worldwide to improve our understanding of the devastating disease that now affects 1 in 45 children.
