: Ausie, Metabolic Therapy has featured on "Today Tonight" a current affairs program on channel 7 in Melbourne.
: It has been widely used as a therapy for cerebral palsy and has recently become popular in the use of treating autistic children. I am not saying that it works, infact, what I am trying to do is to find out more about it. They seem to be somewhat "shy" in giving out information and that makes me weary of it.
Yep, I'd be wary of it too. I'd check on the cerebal palsy sites and associations to see what's involved - and how much. I've got alot of friends with autistic children and not one has mentioned this treatment to me. I generally watch ABC. I didn't mean to sound critical, sorry if I did.
