While diagnoses skyrocket and parents struggle to find help, a group of innovative doctors has been pioneering therapies and treatments that are remarkably effective in healing conditions associated with autism. As word spreads about these incredible discoveries- helped in part by Jenny McCarthy's book Louder Than Words- parents are desperate to learn about the biomedical therapies for themselves.Since early intervention is key to a successful recovery, McCarthy has teamed up with Dr. Jerry Kartzinel, the doctor who successfully treated her son, to write the first book to give parents all the necessary information about biomedical treatment. Beginning with diagnosis, Dr. Kartzinel explains the different therapies that he uses. He shows parents how to make simple changes to their child's environment and diet that can result in marked improvements and are safe and easy to try at home. And finally he explains some of the more advanced therapies that many doctors use today, and the way parents, alongside a qualified medical professional, can determine whether or not such treatments would benefit their child.For new parents, Dr. Kartzinel provides helpful guidelines on how to best protect their child from developing autism.About the AuthorJenny McCarthy is the New York Times bestselling author of Baby Laughs, Life Laughs, and Louder Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism.DR.

This DVD was made especially for families, children, caregivers, and teachers who live and work with young children. Signing with a child helps foster language development, form bonds between caregiver and child, and reduces negative behavior because a child is able to communicate their wants and needs. Baby, Toddler, Preschool Sign Language with Louise and Friends is comprised of dozens of signs typically demonstrated by children during their early years of development. Louise models and explains the signs by providing easy to follow directions to assist adults and children in learning sign language. The first chapters show signs for basic needs such as MORE, EAT, SLEEP, MILK and DRINK. Subsequent chapters match the typical progression of language development of children, as they grow older; thus, the DVD instruction continues with signs to help children with learning transitions such as getting dressed and playtime. This DVD incorporates signs for courtesies including PLEASE and THANK YOU and helps increase cooperation with signs like SHARE, TAKE TURNS, and WAIT. All instruction is voiced and signed. A Bonus section is included that demonstrates signing the ABC s and the Numbers 1-10 (both English and Spanish). Lastly, many signs are reintroduced with Spanish narration.

"We've met some of the most amazing moms and dads who are forging their own path to prevention and recovery. When our son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism we were lucky enough to benefit from their knowledge and experience. Evan has been healed to a great extent by many breakthroughs that, while perhaps not scientifically proven, have definitely helped Evan and many other children who are recovering from autism." - Jenny McCarthy
