Warning. There are some technical areas which need looking at. However, the majority of the book is well readable, quite fascinating, and also can be used to look up terms and interventions.
I re-iterate - its an absolute must in terms of time-saving and getting you up to speed quickly.
Good luck to you if you are beginning this type of intervention, wish you well.
I would recommend this book along with 'Children with starving brains' as a starting point for biomedical treatments. The book is technical and I do not have a science background but I now use this book as more of a reference point when looking up treatments and supplements.

Reading through the book may be challenging in the beginning since it's quite technical, but it is a GREAT reference to look up the vitamins and supplements that are typically needed for ASD kids. This book tells you what each supplement does, as well as its dosage, timing, and side effects. Over time as you educate yourself further, reading the entire book gets easier and makes more sense, but the supplements part is still great even for beginners. It also explains the stages of biomedical treatment, which begins from cleaning the gut and the basic supplements. I highly recommend this book!
The book begins with an explanation of the multitude of individual factors that can complicate health & developmental progress in individuals with autism. It gives details about skin & gut problems, special diets, yeast issues/antifungals, allergens, detoxification, metabolic disorders, and lab tests.
The last 1/3 of the book discusses about 36 different supplements for autism: specific vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, probiotics, amino acids, and others.
While this book is not inexpensive, it is worth its weight in gold. Pangborn & Baker helped me make dietary and supp changes that were very helpful to my child.
Our grandson has made miraculous leaps in development and health thanks to this resource.
Hats off to these two dedicated gentlemen.
