Background to my interest in teaching children with autism

Teaching Children with Autism: Medication for the Symptoms of ADHD

Many treatments have been proposed for ADHD and many of them would be appropriate for the symptoms of ADHD that are exhibited by children with autism. These include medication, neurofeedback, ABA, diet, NAET, Allergy Antidotes. AudioVisual Entrainment, neuroliminal programming, I wish to comment briefly on each of these possible treatments.

But first, here are a few ADD/ADHD References that I happen to have on hand; you will notice that most of them have been around for some time.   😉  And I should admit that I haven’t studied any of them.  ADHD has been an interest of mine, but not a passionate interest.
