Free clinic for children with autism

On July 1, 2011, the Vitamin D Council is planning to begin a free clinic for children with autism. My time will be free, the autism assessment scales will be free, the blood tests will be free, and the vitamin D for the kids will be free (due to the generosity of Ddrops). We estimate 3-4 clinic visits will be needed.

Anyone in the world with a child with autism can call and get an appointment to see me.

The Vitamin D Council will sponsor this clinic as long as we can afford it, which means as long as we have enough donors, members and especially enough lifetime members. From now on, a lifetime membership also means that such membership sponsors one autistic child to come to the free clinic and we will encourage that family (if the donor wants) to call and thank the donor in person.
