Local nurse fighting ‘quack’ treatments for autism – Independent.ie

‘I’m a nurse and have four kids, two with Autism. There is no cure or treatment for Autism. It’s not a disease. People are born with Autism and they will die with it.’
It was just under a year ago that she discovered that these treatments are being offered to Irish parents.
‘I came across a Facebook page about treatments for Autism and when I asked about it, I discovered that parents were being told that worms and parasites cause Autism and that they are to administer a bleach solution to their children.
‘I have seen some ridiculous therapies and treatments for Autism but this is by far the worst and most dangerous.’
