ABOUT AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER
Autism is a developmental disorder that begins at birth or within the first two-and-a-half years of life. But autism is treatable
Most children diagnosed with autism are perfectly normal in appearance, but spend their time engaged in puzzling and/or disturbing behaviors which are markedly different from those of typical children. Less severe cases may be diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), or with Aspergers Syndrome (these children typically have normal speech, but may have many “autistic” social and behavioral problems). Many physicians feel that ADD and ADHD* are part of an autistic spectrum of disorders (ASD).
Autism affects an estimated 1 in 99 children. Autism affects males four times more frequently than females, and reaches an incidence of approximately 1 in 56 males. Today there are believed to be 1.5 million Americans that have some form of autism and the numbers are on the rise. Biomedical testing can help sort out the reason for autistic behaviors and provides a guide for the best treatment options.
Wycoff Wellness - recognized for providing some of the most unique and exciting cutting edge autism treatment options in the Lansing MI area - provides a unique and thorough process to evaluate children and adults with Autism, PDD, or Asperger Syndrome. Our process involves the following components:
An initial visit
• Both parents and child are involved in this visit. A complete review of symptoms and past history (completed before the visit) provides a guide for the consultation.
• Perform a head-to-toe physical
• Coordinate recommended testing (see below)
• Initiate basics of a treatment plan
First follow up visit
• Typically only with the parents
• To discuss results of all testing
• To develop a customized treatment plan
• To determine the need for further testing
Follow up visits
• Follow up depends on individual treatment needs
• Follow up visits are scheduled as needed - typically every 2-3 months.
These are often done with the parents only.
• Visits may be done in person, on the telephone, or confidentially on the internet via a secure email portal.
Wycoff Wellness typically would recommend tests selected from the following lists. The specific recommended diagnostic testing is an individual decision between a Wycoff Wellness Center healthcare provider and the patient. Typical testing to be considered includes:
Complete blood count
To assess for anemia and blood cell problems

To assess thyroid metabolism & function
