Autism Research Institute (ARI) Yahoo Discussion Groups Provide
There are three Yahoo discussion groups/listservs devoted to the ARI/Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) approach to treating autism spectrum disorders. The DAN! approach mostly involves special diets, nutritional supplements, and the removal of toxic substances. These groups are exploratory rather than explanatory and are meant as an open forum for information and opinions. Parents and professionals are welcome to join.
ARI Support: This listserv is a support group for those interested in the DAN! approach to treatment for autism spectrum disorders. For more information: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/ARIsupport/.
ARI-OKA (Older Kids and Adults): This listserv is a support group for those interested in the DAN! approach to treatment specifically as it relates to adults with autism or the parents of adults or older kids with autism. For more information: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/ARI-OKA/.
ARI_Recovered: This listserv is a support group for those who have recovered or nearly recovered their children from autism using the DAN! approach to treatment. For more information: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/ARI_recovered/.
