We have been using the Dynaxox for a couple of months now and I must say that it is a lot of work. It's a great device and does give our daughter the ability to communicate. I would love to hear from some of you that have had success with this or a similar device. Drop me a line at email@example.com and share your story.

Practitioners that promote the “biomedical” treatment of autism often claim that there is little risk of harming an autistic child with the interventions they recommend. “What’s the harm of trying?”, they ask; “What have you got to lose?”
As it turns out, the answer to that question may be “Quite a bit.” Apart from the cost in terms of money, time, effort and false hope, it now appears that one of the prominent “biomedical” treatments for autism may cause neurological damage.
In November, 2008, the journal Neurotoxicology released an “e-publication” of an article that casts further doubt on the efficacy and safety of chelating children with autism.
