This is the doctor we met while in Central America. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to treat their child for autism to see him!
Here is his web site:
Dr. Kotsanis was one of the founding members of Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) in 1995. The Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) Protocol evolved out of a study that we did in 1992. The first Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) meeting was held in Grapevine, Texas in 1995. Our practice has been treating autistic children since 1992. Dr. Kotsanis is a board Certified Otolaryngologist and Allergist and as such these communication disorders fall within his domain of Ear, Nose & Throat.
The foundation of our treatment is correcting digestive function, correcting nutrition/diet, heavy metal detoxification through chelation and boosting the immune system through allergy therapy and proper nutrition. We also offer Auditory Enhancement Training (AET) and highly recommend Applied Behavior Analysis therapy (ABA), visual correction via special lenses and speech therapy - but we do not offer those here. We will recommend providers upon your first visit that will meet the needs of your child. Dr. Kotsanis became interested in autism because his son had a high functioning ASD with Aspergers. He is now 23 years old and typical.
