What if it’s not Autism?-Dr. Goldberg’s theory

Dr. Goldberg’s prediction of Autism that it’s not a disorder but a disease which is curable does raise hope. Dr. Goldberg claim that Autism, ADHD and like disorders are an epidemic which needs medical attention. The President of the Neuro-Immune Deficiency Medical Advisory Board Dr. Michael J. Goldberg's opinion of the reason behind Autism is Neuro-Immune Deficiency Syndrome (NIDS)

As most of the children with Autism are physically healthy but have unstable immune system; in Dr. Goldberg’s opinion unless there’s another medical problem the immune system is what that's creating the mis balance / dysfunction in the brain so the first thing to check  is the functions of all the systems in the body. 


Dr. Goldberg explains that improvement in overall general health would bring positive changes in cognitive sharpness and overall alertness. Children who feel better would think better and children and adults who are not fully bright and alert are not going to develop normally and function at their best.
Dr Goldberg has been developing the evidence to support this theory for over thirty years, his book ‘The Myth of Autism: How a misunderstood epidemic is destroying our children’ describe autism as a neurological disease which affects the brain’s Immune System.

As a parent of an autistic child I would love to know about other parent’s view of Dr. Goldberg’s theory and his book.
