Doctors have generally overlooked the connections among the 4-A disorders, despite their concurrent rise and the presence of many medical clues. For years the medical establishment has considered autism medically untreatable and utterly incurable, and has limited ADHD treatment mainly to symptom suppression.

They have found that deadly modern toxins, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic imbalances, genetic vulnerabilities and assaults on the immune and gastrointestinal systems trigger most of the symptoms of the 4-A disorders, resulting in frequent misdiagnosis and untold misery.

It is well written, reader friendly and we believe all clinicians working with children should read it and apply it in their evaluations and therapy sessions. I think it can also benefit any developmentalist (i.e. OT, PT), pediatrician, audiologist, teacher, parent, etc. to understand more about strengths and weakness seen in their children.
