This book asserts that autism can be treated by reducing the neurological inflammation that is part of the disease process, rather than simply masking the symptoms with drugs like Ritalin and Prozac. The authors report to have seen autistic behaviors improve dramatically or disappear completely with appropriate medical treatment. The book reviews the medical literature regarding the biological nature of the disease, including the potential connection between vaccines and autism. The foreword is by Katie Wright, whose parents—Bob and Suzanne Wright—founded Autism Speaks.

Winner of the 2007 "ForeWord Book of the Year - Honorable Mention, Health" sponsored by the ForeWord MagazineA once rare disease, autism is now a worldwide epidemic affecting 1.8 million American children, making it the most common developmental disability—more common than Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and mental retardation combined. Autism is growing at a startling rate of 10-17 percent per year. At this rate, the prevalence of autism could reach 4 million Americans in the next decade. The Center for Disease Control has released studies showing that at present, 1 in 150 children in the U. S. have been diagnosed with the disease.

Changing the Course of Autism wants to change the way autism is perceived and managed. Most books on this subject describe educational and behavioral therapies, but autism is a medical disease, not a psychological disorder. This groundbreaking books asserts that the disease can be treated by reducing the neurological inflammation that is part of the disease process, rather than simply masking the symptoms with drugs like Ritalin and Prozac. The authors have seen autistic behaviors improve dramatically or disappear completely with appropriate medical treatment. The book reviews the medical literature regarding the biological nature of the disease, including the potential connection between vaccines and autism.

In 2001, the second son of Bryan Jepson, MD, was diagnosed with autism. Over the course of that year, he and his wife Laurie began exploring treatment options and found that the medical community knew very little about the cause, the treatment, or the prognosis of this disease. After a year of research, the couple established the nonprofit Children's Biomedical Center of Utah. From 2002-2005, Dr. Jepson treated hundreds of children on the autism spectrum and the clinic raised awareness throughout the intermountain West concerning issues related to autism and other childhood developmental disorders.

Because he was a specialist in the field, Dr. Jepson was recruited to join the team at Thoughtful House Center for Children, a multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to caring for children with autism and related conditions. The Thoughtful House is designed to integrate biomedical, gastrointestinal, and educational intervention into a coordinated effort, and to use this model to perform clinical research. It officially opened January 1st, 2006, and Dr. Jepson is now its Medical Director.

Bryan Jepson graduated from the University of Utah Medical School in 1995 and completed residency training in Grand Rapids , Michigan in 1998. He is board-certified in emergency medicine.

Jane Johnson became interested in medical treatment for learning disabilities in 2000, when her son was diagnosed with nonverbal learning disorder (NLD). In her effort to educate herself, she became more and more alarmed at the epidemic growth and prevalence of developmental disorders. She is the Co-Managing Director of the Board of Thoughtful House. She lives in New York City with her husband and their three children.

The foreword is by Katie Wright, whose parents, Bob and Suzanne Wright, founded Autism Speaks after Katie's son was diagnosed with autism. As CEO of NBC/Universal, Bob made Autism Speaks the biggest autism organization in the country.

This book will be the new PDR of autism for parents and physicians. Incredibly well referenced and easy to understand, it challenges long-held beliefs about this disease and introduces us to the new medical model of autism. An important book that every professional and family member who deals with autism must own.—Lee Grossman, President and CEO, Autism Society of America

Dr. Bryan Jepson demystifies the disorder by providing the most up-to-date information on symptoms, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and the impact of the disorder on families of individuals with autism. Based on Dr. Jepson's extensive research and clinical observations, this book answers myriad questions about autism with authority and compassion.—Doreen Granpeesheh, Ph.D., BCBA, Executive Director, Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD)
