He has been a pioneer in researching medical problems associated with autism, along with his colleague Dr. Bernard Rimland. Their work helped elevate the now-accepted notion that autism is usually an acquired disorder that should be treated comprehensively by addressing physical symptoms along with appropriate educational and behavioral supports.
Publication details include: Nutritional Supplement Use for Autistic Spectrum Disorder offers up-to-date discussions of safe and effective supplement use to address biochemical abnormalities in individuals with autism.
