why publish?

What’s in it for me? I believe (as do the medical professionals that are participating in this) that my findings have opened up an exciting and potentially very important area of research into the symptoms and treatment of autism. By filing for an NIH grant to study this, and by making this material available via the internet, I am attempting to stimulate interest so that further studies can be done and those most in need of treatment can potentially get relief. I interact with many families in similar situations; kids that suffer from the same awful symptoms as my son, kids that are uncontrollably self-abusive, parents that, like us, are at the absolute end of their rope. Perhaps this new treatment will change their lives like it has changed mine.
