Kids' Brain Trust: A New Nonprofit Gives Parents Hope of Defeating Autism

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- April is Autism Awareness Month and to celebrate, renowned osteopathic physician Eric Dolgin, D.O., F.C.A., announced today the creation of Kids' Brain Trust, a nonprofit clinic that aims to treat autistic children with cranial osteopathy, a clinically validated specialty. KBT will provide one year of free treatment for children from low- to middle-income households. Enrollment is anticipated to begin in Spring 2009 for pediatric cases classified as mild-to-moderate autism.

Now that one in every 150 children is diagnosed with autism, the need for Kids' Brain Trust couldn't be greater. "This condition is more complex -- and more treatable -- than previously thought," says Dr. Dolgin. "The point of this pilot clinic is to make a lifelong impact on the lives of children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to receive private medical care." Based on hundreds of clinical cases, Dr. Dolgin anticipates significant improvement in emotional and intellectual growth, cognition, and social interaction. Children will benefit from a multifaceted program that emphasizes osteopathic medicine, dietary guidelines, and homeopathic treatment.

Osteopathic medicine was cited as undergoing a "growth spurt so remarkable in today's stagnant medical climate," that it has attracted attention from health care policy makers nationwide, according to The New York Times.

Whereas conventional doctors have little to offer frustrated parents, cranial osteopaths are establishing an impressive track record in the treatment of neurodevelopmentally challenged children through noninvasive manual treatment. The physician's goal is to correct the underlying abnormalities that derail normal brain function, such as intracranial strain patterns, obstructions to optimal fluid flow, and compression of cranial bones.

The newly formed clinic has attracted tremendous talent, drawing from the nation's leaders in the fight against autism. Its six-member board includes Elaine Hall, whose nonprofit arts program, Miracle Project, was the subject of an Emmy-winning HBO documentary titled Autism: The Musical; and John Melnychuk, whose expertise as a homeopath was the subject of the book The Impossible Cure.

Dr. Dolgin, founder of the Kids' Brain Trust, is recognized as one of the foremost practitioners in the field of cranial osteopathy in the United States. During his 25 years in practice, Dr. Dolgin has proved that cranial osteopathy can achieve profound healing in many cases where other approaches have failed.

The Kids' Brain Trust is located at 2128 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405. Interested parents and donors are invited to contact Kids' Brain Trust at (310) 664-8818.
