A gateway to science-based biomedical information and commentaries on autism/PDD for parents, teachers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, other interested professionals, and classroom aides who are dedicated to helping persons with autism. Our commentaries on biomedical aspects of autism are based on an attitude of respect for science and the dedicated researchers attempting to learn more about autism. We also believe that only research meeting the highest standards of "good science" is the way to discover evidence-based treatments for autism.

Without his help, this website would not exist.
Information and commentaries on treatment are provided for general information only and are not intended to be recommendations for the treatment of a specific individual with autism. As in other clinical settings, medical treatments for autism (usually medications with effects on the brain and with potential for causing side effects) must be done under the supervision of an experienced professional.
