The Autism Book introduces readers to the world of autism and guides new parents beginning their own autism journey. At his book talks, Dr Sears hopes to provide parents with a simple and clear understanding of the biomedical treatment approach that he has used to treat his patients successfully. Dr Sears will also address some preventive measures new parents can take with their infants in order to help lower the risk of autism. Additional information about The Autism Book can be found at www.theautismbook.com.

“Dr Sears is a passionate physician who considers every available treatment option, using his extensive knowledge of conventional medicine and integrative remedies, when recommending the best options for each child affected by autism,” announced Lisa Ackerman, Executive Director at TACA. “Unfortunately, every child affected has his/her own unique symptoms and needs -- so what works for one child may not work as well for another. We know there is much parents can do to help alleviate the symptoms of autism. Dr Sears offers practical advice that works and he is a tremendous resource for parents to learn about available treatment options, including biomedical treatments and the more familiar prescription medications. We are honored to have him speak at our Chapter meetings.”

According to Joar Opheim, CEO of Nordic Naturals “From its inception, Nordic Naturals has been a strong supporter of education and research that empowers families who have children with autism to find the services and treatments that they require. We are pleased to sponsor Dr Bob on his tour throughout the United States, and to be partnering with a proactive organization such as TACA.”

Board-certified in Pediatrics, Dr Sears earned his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1995 and completed a pediatric internship and residency at Children's Hospital Los Angeles in 1998. He has co-authored six books in the Sears Parenting Library, including The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood, Father’s First Steps, The Baby Book, The Premature Baby Book, and The Baby Sleep Book and is the solo author of The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child. His TV appearances include the Dr Phil show, the Ellen DeGeneris show, CNN's House Calls with Dr Sanjay Gupta, the CBS Early Show, and PBS's "A Place of Our Own.” He has a private practice in Capistrano Beach, California and is the father of three boys.
