Parent and Teacher Guidebook for Autism 2nd Edition

Autism is one of the most unrecognized and neglected epidemics of our time and its an epidemic whose incidence is increasing significantly. Since for all these years there was no definitive medical or surgical treatment available for autism, doctors found themselves limited to making the diagnosis and giving symptomatic relief to symptoms like epilepsy and behavioral problems. It was therefore left to the special educators and the rehabilitation therapists to do whatever they could for these children. This therefore put the entire onus of treating and managing these children on the parents

Stem Cell Therapy in Neurological Disorder 3rd Edition

This book addresses the bioethics behind using stem cell therapy as a way of treating certain conditions. There are two sides to the ethical debate on basing our treatment options on evidence based medicine. [1] One side of the debate is " Is it ethical for doctors to offer to patients treatment options that have not become a standard of care as yet?." [2] The other side of the debate is "Is it ethical to deny patients suffering from disabling diseases, treatments options that are safe and available, whilst we wait many years for the results of multicentric international trial to prove that these treatments work ?" Both these questions are answered differently by different people depending on what is at stake for them.

Looking After Children With Autism

Parenting a special child is one of the most challenging and demanding tasks for a family to manage. Children with autism appear like any other children and yet have certain limitations that need special attention and looking after. Whereas doctors, therapists and special educator play a major role in assisting the child overcome their limitations, the final onus of integrating these children into main stream life is obviously with the parents. We at Neurogen believe that well informed and empowered parents can make a big difference to the lives of children with autism. Since parents sometimes find it difficult to understand medical and technical terms, we decided to bring out this handbook which has been written in a very simplified manner for any parent to understand. Understanding exactly what the medical problems are with their children as well as understanding how different therapies and treatments work, gives parents the ability to identify and implement treatment programs that are best suited to their child. The last few years has seen a major explosion both in research in autism as well as the availability of newer and advanced technologies that can be used as treatment. In this book we have explained many of these new technologies as well so that parents can make an informed choice about what is best for their child. At Neurogen we have seen some dramatic improvements in the majority of our children with autism using a combination of paediatric neurorehabilitation therapies (Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Applied Behaviour Analysis, Art Based Therapy, and Special Education) combined with state-of-the art medical technology (Stem Cell Therapy). We understand that making a choice as to whether one should opt for using advanced medical technologies can be a difficult one for parents and we hope that the information in this handbook helps them to make appropriate informed choices.

Understanding Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Teachers and Educators to Address the Needs of the Student

The purpose of this guide is to help educators (teachers and administrators) become acquainted with identifying and meeting the needs of the student with Asperger's Syndrome. Public school, while often difficult for typical students, can be a nightmare for those students with Asperger's Syndrome. Without information and training in this disability, teachers face confusion and frustration in light of the unusual behaviors and lack of social skills. Without training, students with Asperger's Syndrome are misidentified and often blamed for behaviors that are a direct result of their disability. It is hoped that this guide will lead teachers to a better understanding of Asperger's Syndrome and help the students with AS have a richer, more enjoyable educational experience.

The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-Made Epidemic

Much of the public discussion about autism has missed the point about the possible causes. To solve this question, two writers began digging into the history of other degenerative neurological disorders. Their research led them to discover incredible and previously unacknowledged links between a strain of syphilis which left suffers raving mad, the spike in incidence of schizophrenia during the Industrial Revolution, and the hidden commonalities between the parents of the first children diagnosed with autism in the 1930s.
The Age of Autism connects these dots to form a startling new thesis: behind each of these disorders ? and many more ? was exposure to mercury, the most toxic non-radioactive substance known to man.
