A Diagnosis of Autism….

This can be a frightening diagnosis for a parent to hear. It certainly was for me. It was especially difficult when my son was diagnosed, some 22 years ago, when there was no Internet to help out! All my research was done from the library and letters were typed and mailed!

But I did, by some miracle, find Dr. Goldberg who helped my son tremendously over the years. So the purpose of this blog is two-fold… to share his interview so that others can learn some valuable information from him and also to give parents hope. My son who is now 25 years old is a happy and productive member of society. He has contributed so much to the world and taught us all a lot about life.

I’d like to share some of those things with you on the other pages of this blog. Please leave your comments and questions. I’d love to hear from you!


An Interview with Dr. Michael J. Goldberg

images2I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Michael J. Goldberg who is a well known expert in the field of autism and a pediatrician in private practice in Tarzana, California. Dr. Goldberg is the Director of the non-profit Neuro-Immune Dysfunction Syndromes NIDS Medical Board and Research Institute. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Goldberg is dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of the likely connection between neuro-immune and/or auto-immune dysfunction and other conditions such as Autism, ADD, Alzheimer’s, ALS, CFS/CFIDS, MS and other immune-related diseases. The NIDS Institute helps to facilitate access to treatment options and research studies for families suffering from these illnesses.

Dr. Goldberg has been successfully treating my son for pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) for the past 12 years and has consented to this interview to pass along this information to all who might benefit.
