Provider's Professional Development
Exclusive & Only at Autism Alternative
Our Programs are Essential to Companies Providing Services to Individuals with Disabilities
The newly released national ratio by CDC states that one in 88 chidlren (one in 54 boys) comes as no surprise to us. Our mission is to assist compnaies to provide specialized quality services for the Autism Community. Although Autism Spectrum Disorders falls into the category of lifelong disability, we have witnessed that if we were to invest in the professional development of those providing services to our community and intervene timely, many Autistic individuals can overcome their disabilityand live independent, productive lives.

No more need for traumatic testing, blood draws or waiting forcheck up. This webinar was the best financial investment we have done for our children and family health.
Thank you Autism Alternative / Germaine, FL
Finally someone who I can understand and relate to! The presenter is a mother herself and she addresses the topics in simple language, using a lot of examples from the everyday life. She also has the patience to explain over and over again a specific point until we understand. I was not ashamed or embarrassed to ask questions when I did not know or grasp something the first time. I learned so much. I no longer feel confused or like I do not know what I am doing. I feel in control of my child’s treatment and we now make informed decisions. Bet money I spent for the last 6 years.
This webinar did for my stress levels and adrenal glands what 3 years of medication couldn’t. I am no longer anxious or scared that I don’t know what is going on with my child.I can solve my own Autism puzzle now. And I love the practical tips! No playing around, no talking my head off, just straight to the point, proven and effective advice. Perfect for stressed and tired Autistic moms!
P.S. My Husband estimated that more then 1/3 of our income for the last 2 years was wasted “on try this, try that supplement and see if it works.” Thanks to the Webinar, no more guessing games for us!
Thank you so much
Bobby and Leann Walker
Why is that only the parents care for parents? My husband is in his 4th year in Iraq, I lost my employment 7 months ago and hardly make it with my two Auspies. I can afford the DAN and I can afford the food, the supplements, the special diets… I turned for help with my children to so many non profit organizations which we all know make huge profits. None responded!
Until I turned to Autism Alternative. I wanted to learn myself, so I don’t leave my children without any care or treatment. I will tell you this--only a mother can do this for another mother! We are forever grateful and you are always in our prayers! May you be blessed as much as you bless others and much more!

I am a grandmother and pediatric nurse with 17 years of practice Westminster, CO. It is our Doctor who recommended this webinar to my daughter as he had met with the Presenter at a conference and was impressed with her knowledge. My grandson was diagnosed 3 years ago and we have done so much for him. However it was after we participated in the Webinar that we realign our approach and made the necessary adjustment as it was suggested, that my grandson emerged from his world and started making significant progress. They should teach this in Medical Schools and every parent of a child with Autism must know this!
Thank you and be blessed!

Autism Alternative Online Educational Course for Parents and Professionals
THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR UNDERSTANDING AND TREATING AUTISM
The autism rate is doubling every five years around the world.
If you are an expectant parent, or planning to have a child soon, you might want to sit down before absorbing these staggering statistics, recently released by the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH)- 2009, which is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services:
“According to data from the 2007 telephone survey of parents of nearly 82,000 US children, the odds of a parent being told that their child has an ASD are 1 in 63. If it is a boy, the chances climb to a science fiction-like level of one in 38, or 2.6% of all male children in America.”
Since autism was virtually unknown a few decades ago, this is an outrageous statistic and similar reports from other countries are not far behind.
Autism Alternative, a pioneering organization that provides education and support for the Autistic Community worldwide, will be running an educational course online in webinar format, based on extensive research and clinical experience of the brightest scientists and medical professionals who are treating Autism successfully.
The webinar is aimed at helping parents understand the reasons for the development of Autism and the rationale behind recommendations and treatments. The treatment strategy follows sequential stages based on integrative medicne, alopathis and naturopathic principles so that particular issues can be targeted at the appropriate time, and in accordance with the body’s natural healing processes. For example, due to the fact that a key metabolic deficit in many autistic children inhibits detoxification, removal of metals etc., is not attempted until this former issue has been addressed and resolved.
The course is designed to assist parents to make sound decisions in their choice of treatments or therapies and offers them the “know how” to implement and supervise such interventions with the help and guidance of Autism trained medical professional. The course covers a huge array of practical tools and tips for parents to ease the flow of the healing process.
The webinar is taught by Mrs. Milena Sideris, Autism Specialist, Independent Medical Researcher, Founder and CEO of Autism Alternative and a mother of healthy and happy child, formally diagnosed with Autism. More information about This Presenter could be found at www.AutismAlternative.com- About Us & Testimonials.
The Educational Course consists of 12 online lectures - one webinar per week – each covering variety of the effective treatments and therapies for ASD and the associated neurological disorders, such as environmental issues and food allergies, detoxification, organ support during treatment, beneficial supplementation, diets, gastrointestinal issues common in ASD, immune disregulation, methylation, treatments for opportunistic infections and coinfections, feeding issues, sleep disturbances, mirror neurons rehabilitation, therapeutic behavioral modification and etc.
Extended Certified Course- duration 16 weeks - is offered to medical practitioners and therapists willing to work in the area of recovering Autism, ASD, neurological and developmental disorders in children.

Milena Sideris is a Parents Advocate and Practitioner who specializes in Autism Spectrum Disorders. We have known each other for many years. She has been one of the instrumental people pointing me in the right direction to look for solutions for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Milena is basically a walking library on the topic. She knows pretty much everything that’s ever been said, proven or disproven that has to do with Autism. She knows the literature; she knows all the big heroes and their work in the field and all the fallen heroes as well. In the process she has developed her own supportive protocols, and educational therapies, based on her extensive knowledge, personal experience and expertise.
She works with me in the function of the patient advocate... Ms. Sideris takes over and guide the families through the ups and downs of treatment and interventions for the next few years and this has been a fantastic cooperation between us and truly beneficial for the patients and their recovery. She is a living, breathing encyclopedia on every topic related to neurological disorders such as ASD and developmental delays in children.
She is one of the most brilliant people I have ever met!

“The Healer if Healers”, " The Teacher of Teachers"
Milena Sideris has an innate, intuitive gift to penetrate beyond the normal insights of biological medicine and offer approaches that parents can instantly apply to the treatment of their children. Having recovered her own child from autism through her unique approaches, she offers a steady and skilled guiding hand when negotiating the maze of options available to parents.
Dr. Bruce Hoffman MD, FAARFM

I was so inspired by your presentation last weekend, and was very impressed by the depth of your knowledge, and the practical approach you have developed. You are truly inspirational, having turned your own and your son's suffering into something so positive. I feel it is vitally important that your knowledge is available to many people because I think that autism is going to increase at an alarming rate. I also think so many people are now affected by allied conditions, and the medical profession has no clue as to what is really going on.
I know you are extremely busy, and perhaps you might like to think about whether you could take on a teaching role for us.

Milena Sideris is a dedicated, hard working, loving mother whose son had autism. She left no stone unturned on many continents to find answers to help her son’s illness. She knows many good doctors who have helped resolve her son’s problems and in the process she has put together a "How To” practical guide and program for parents, caregivers and therapists. She is painstakingly holding the hands of frustrated parents until they learn "The Method" for recovery.
She has been lecturing to groups of parents and people around the world and folks listen to her because she does have the answers. I personally cannot spend the time that she does with families and absolutely recommend all of my new ASD patients to her before beginning my work with them. Treating ASD requires a complete well rounded all inclusive programs and Milena is an absolute essential part of that team and successful conclusion of the treatments.
I unhesitatingly recommend her to any new family wishing to walk the rocky road of saving their children from this horrible problem
Dr. Bruce Howard Shelton MD MD(H) DiHom FBIH
Valley Integrative Physicians
I have known Milena Sideris for a few years and highly recommend her to anyone involved in Autism Spectrum Disorder( ASD). Milena's personal knowledge and understanding of ASD far surpasses anyone I have ever come in contact with. She has medical knowledge greater than most doctors, and the dedication and passion that only a mother with an inflicted child could possess.
I have worked with her personally over the past years, and she has served as my trainer and mentor in understanding ASD. As a result, my ability to offer aid to families in need has drastically improved. I have also witnessed firsthand the benefit that children receive from even just an hour of her time. She is strongly intuitive, quick to action, and not afraid to put in all of her effort to help a child in need. Further, she knows exactly what is needed to be truly effective for children with special needs, the skill to train prospective therapists and providers, and the in depth understanding to revamp and revitalize stagnant intervention programs.
I strongly urge you to take advantage of her talent and can assure you that you will be impressed and pleased with the subsequent results.
You are my life saver, you taught me so much, and you came into my life just on time that I was so desperate.
I met Milena just on time; I was like “Oh! Thank God, help has arrived!” I was that desperate. Milena has helped me with a lot of things. She was interested not only in my child but with our entire family and life. I really did not receive that much from any other person or professional until then and I was not aware that autism effects the whole family. She taught me a lot from homeopathy, detoxification, chelation, to how to build better immunity, through diets, allergy treatments, electromagnetic fields protection, getting rid of chronic infections, even how to settle the room of the child, how to put a child to sleep, how to teach my child to pay attention and focus on a task, which of the educational and interventional approaches are good for my daughter, how to remain calm and focused on treatments and lots of more,,,, that wont fit here if I attempt to write it all down. I really understood how wonderful she is when I met her and her totally recovered son.
Thank you Milena!
