Episode 218 – Autism – Understanding the Spectrum

In today’s episode of the ATP Project – Steve, Matt and Elizma cover off on a very important topic of Autism. At some point in each of our lives we are likely to become a relative, caretaker, friend or partner of someone diagnosed with Autism, therefore its important to understand the extent of the spectrum. The team cover off on diet and environmental influencing factors on Autism, delving into the roles these two factors play and options available. Elizma also breaks down testing available and a powerful before and after case study that vastly improved the wellbeing of a young boy in Poland. It’s a heart-warming and mind-blowing episode, we hope you enjoy!
