It’s Spring Pollen Time Again!
I really do love flowers, and trees, and shrubs, and even grass but I certainly don’t
love pollen and the negative effects that it has! We can’t make it disappear and of course we wouldn’t want it
to because through pollen comes new plants (More)
Our Autism Awareness Merchandise is in! Check out our merchandise page.

We strive to work toward finding solutions and improving public
awareness to Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (NIDS) related diseases, both neuro-immune and auto-immune, through
research, education and legislation.
The NNY Autism Center, located in Northern New
York at 103 South Main Street, Black River, New York 13612, was formed
by a group of dedicated, determined parents, grandparents, caregivers and professionals working together to bring this bio-medical approach
for Autism and related immune mediated disorders to the children of Northern New York and surrounding areas.
What Is The Bio-Medical Approach?
ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders), CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), ADD/ADHD
(Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) as well as links to other immune diseases.
The premise of the treatment is that the body reduces blood flow to specific
areas of the brain (temporal lobes) when the immune system is not functioning normally. The impaired blood flow
decreases neurological and developmental functions resulting in any combination is a medical treatment approach for individuals
who have NIDS(Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndromes) that results in symptoms commonly associated with ASD of symptoms
commonly observed in Autism, particularly in young children such as:
loss of social skills
in auditory processing
decrease or loss of language
- repetitive behaviors
of eye contact
lack of focus
obsessive compulsive disorders
"low grade" fevers
recurrent ear infections
in fine and gross motor
food and chemical sensitivities
preference for routine
The medical approach consists of diet, pharmaceutical and rehabilitation therapies. The
choice of medications varies from patient to patient and is based upon history, physical, and analysis of medical
tests. Therapy can last from one to four years, although some patients may require maintenance therapy.
