Autism Videos - Personalized Medicine to treat Autism using off-label Generic Drugs


Today’s post contains three autism videos.  I was asked to give a presentation about treating autism with off-label drugs.  This turned out to be quite easy to write, but it kept getting longer and longer.  I think most people would need to watch it in two sittings and you do need to have a deep interest in the subject.  I could have gone on for hours longer, there is much more to tell.  

Click on the settings to watch in HD, then you can read the slides clearly.  In the lower right corner of YouTube, click on the white cog shape, select quality and then HD.


I also include two very good videos by Tony Attwood, which are much lighter going, but really explain why Asperger’s and Autism are better understood when considered separately, albeit that they really are part of the same spectrum.  They should be required viewing by anyone new to the subject of autism, parents in particular.

Mixed Media Messages

You may have noticed a week ago SAP, the German software giant, announced that it will in future try to ensure that 1% of its 60,000 workforce are autistic.  This attracted quite a lot of publicity.  It might have been kinder if they had referred to Asperger’s, or at least High Functioning Autism. Not all autistic people are savants or computer wizz kids.

When it comes to TV, the messages are often either trivial or sensational.  But, thanks to the internet, you can access very relevant and intelligent films, and all for free.

The MIND Institute at the University of California in Sacramento, has a rich library of material, from some very well qualified people.

These films are typically an hour long and cover many of the subjects that have appeared in this blog.  If you are a fan of Temple Grandin, you can even watch her film.  I liked the one by Deborah Fein, halfway down the list.

As usual though, usable conclusions are rather absent; we have to add those ourselves.
