I understand Autism to be a biochemical and neurological problem that alters the way the brain and body develop, and eventually results in the social, behavioral and communication problems that these individuals experience. These characteristics are symptoms, and the result of a multi-system breakdown that went undiagnosed!
Plainview, New York (PRWEB) July 28, 2008
When it comes to Autism, Dr. Michael Gruttadauria is an expert. Not only does he run the Long Island Spectrum Center, a facility that treats children with Autism, he has two children of his own that were diagnosed.
Day after day, patients come from all over the NY Tri-State Area asking questions about their Autistic children...and what can be done to help them. As a clinician, he patiently consults with families and examines and treats their children. But each day, his frustration grows...frustration based on ignorance, misinformation and politics.
"People need to know that Autism is NOT a mental disorder that is genetic and therefore untreatable. It is a biochemical and neurological problem that can be treated, once you know where to look for the causes of the symptoms!" says Dr. Gruttadauria.
There is (and always has been) a lot of confusion as to what Autism and the Autistic Spectrum Disorders are. This starts with a significant problem with the way Autism is classified; Autism is considered a 'mental disorder'. Since it has been classified as such since the 1940s, most physicians learn little to nothing about it. Its classification further breaks down Autism to be an impairment in social interactions, repetitive behaviors and problems communicating. With these 'defining characteristics', it is no wonder that these children are placed into a structured special learning environment accompanied by behavior modification with little to no medical intervention.

Dr. Gruttadauria states that, "We have let an entire generation of children slip through our fingertips and it is time to mobilize and get them back. If the top three defining characteristics were; under-connected brain circuitry, chronic gastrointestinal dysfunction and underlying autoimmune/inflammatory processes, we would see a very different treatment criteria established for Autism! In fact, based on the research, these three things are the true problems of Autism which eventually lead to the cognitive impairments."
