Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guests Dr. Eric Weiss discuss the following:
- With April being Autism Awareness Month, lets start with defining autism? Can you tell us in your own words what is autism and why is sometimes referred to as autism spectrum disorder?
- Can you tell us more about the spectrum?
- How does one get diagnosed and at what age is diagnosis possible?
- Do the signs and symptoms of autism change over time and if so, how?
- They say kids on the spectrum feel differently and have more issues with confidence and trouble in social situations. Is that true and tell us a bit more about that?
- You recently released a book with your wife Christine Weiss called Educating Marston. Tell us why this book is important to you and how it is a helpful resource for anyone with an autistic child?
- You have an autistic child named Marston. You indicate that stem cell replacement therapy helps. How has it helped Marston and do you feel it will ultimately be the wave of the future in helping autistic children?
- Can one come for stem cell replacement therapy at your office?
