ARTS Program: Laboratory Testing for Children with Autism

Personalized Testing and Treatment

Typical routine lab work often falls short of uncovering subtle abnormalities which can have a profound effect on health. Unless accurately addressed, this vicious cycle will continue to inhibit the various biochemical pathways necessary for proper neurological and immune function. The resulting complications contribute to, and may even cause, the symptoms of autism. To achieve optimal results, it is critical that potential biomedical issues be assessed and included as part of the overall treatment programs for individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

Comprehensive laboratory testing can identify the physiological imbalances that contribute to autism and point to an individualized treatment approach. Treatments are designed to restore the body to balance and optimize function through nutritional support, diet, detoxification, and reduction of toxic environmental influences.
