“I Know Your In There -Winning
Our War On Autism” was written for all of the families I’ve helped over the years as well as those
just starting down this difficult road. Cherri Saltzman of the Autism Shop described the book about my son Ryan as stand-up
comedy for autism. But, it also gives hope to those who have to get up to face another day filled with autism. I share our
struggles and fears, in addition to what we did to help Ryan recover. Most of you know my son is now an engineer at
a major aerospace company. The “experts” told me he would need to be institutionalized.
I’m asking for your help this time! We must change the autism paradigm. The world must realize
that kids can and do get better so we can get the funding and research we desperately need. Please forward this to everyone
Do you belong to
any support groups? Do you have a physician, psychologist, or behavior therapist you can share this with? Do you know
a family that just got the diagnosis? Do you or a friend have a family member who needs to understand what you are going
Ryan’s story shows that even though sometimes it seems like it will never happen, it is possible
for kids to recover. I want you to know that, so you don’t give up when you think you have nothing left to give.
I know many of you have already purchased the book since I see every order as they ship from my garage. I’m currently
in talks with the Meredith Vieira Show about an appearance, but I need my autism parents to spread the word about the book!
I Know You’re In There is available on my website, IKnowYou'reInThere, as
well as on Amazon. Please help me make what happened for Ryan, happen for all kids.

We strive to work toward finding solutions and improving public
awareness to Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (NIDS) related diseases, both neuro-immune and auto-immune, through
research, education and legislation.
The NNY Autism Foundation, Inc., located in Northern
New York at 135 Franklin Street, Watertown, New York 13601, was formed
by a group of dedicated, determined parents, grandparents, caregivers and professionals working together to bring this bio-medical approach
for Autism and related immune mediated disorders to the children of Northern New York and surrounding areas.
What Is The Bio-Medical Approach?
ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders), CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), ADD/ADHD
(Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) as well as links to other immune diseases.
The premise of the treatment is that the body reduces blood flow to specific
areas of the brain (temporal lobes) when the immune system is not functioning normally. The impaired blood flow
decreases neurological and developmental functions resulting in any combination is a medical treatment approach for individuals
who have NIDS(Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndromes) that results in symptoms commonly associated with ASD of symptoms
commonly observed in Autism, particularly in young children such as:
loss of social skills
in auditory processing
decrease or loss of language
- repetitive behaviors
of eye contact
lack of focus
obsessive compulsive disorders
"low grade" fevers
recurrent ear infections
in fine and gross motor
food and chemical sensitivities
preference for routine
The medical approach consists of diet, pharmaceutical and rehabilitation therapies. The
choice of medications varies from patient to patient and is based upon history, physical, and analysis of medical
tests. Therapy can last from one to four years, although some patients may require maintenance therapy.
