Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Protocol

developed by: DAN! Conference members

Defeat Autism Now!From

What is DAN!?
The Autism Research Institute convened a group of about 30 carefully selected physicians and scientists in Dallas in January, 1995, for the express purpose of sharing information and ideas toward defeating autism as quickly as possible. The participants, from the U.S. and Europe, represent the most advanced thinking by some of the best minds in the autism world. The participants continue to work together toward the goal of finding effective treatments.

One major goal of the DAN! Conference was to produce a document that could be used by physicians everywhere as a guide for the clinical assessment of autistic patients, leading to appropriate treatment. After a year of strenuous work the document, representing a consensus statement of the state-of-the-art alternative medical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of autism, is now available. The 244-page manual is titled Biomedical Assessment Options for Children with Autism and Related Problems. Parents and physicians who do not regard psychotropic drugs as the best or only means of treating autistic patients will welcome this advanced manual on clinical assessment.
