The Pied Pipers of Autism–How Television, Video and Toys in Infancy Cause ASD


The Pied Pipers of Autism 

How Television, Video and Toys in Infancy Cause ASD

by Leonard Oestreicher, MD


I was very interested to read Dr Oestreicher’s thoughts and research on the cause of skyrocketing rates of ASD in our time. Beginning with his personal story of his nephew developing ASD he began researching possible causes. If the cause of 90% of ASD is genetic, as many academic investigators believe, why the sudden increase from 1 in 20,000 50 years ago to 1 in 70–or less–today?


Dr Oestreicher asks poignant questions and considers possible answers: Is one-way communication dangerous for some young children and infants? Why our sons are up to 17 times more vulnerable to Asperger’s than our daughters? TV, videos, video devices, and talking toys are the Pied Pipers of Autism, enchanting our children away from normal social development.


Read it with an open mind, and you won’t be disappointed!
