Dear Patients, Parents and Health Practitioners,
We are planning to conduct a large global study using over 100 well trained NAET practitioners
on a group of 1296 autistic children (ages 2 to 10) to determine the effectiveness of NAET in
Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our earlier published research showed dramatic improvement, with
23/30 children receiving treatment being able to return to regular schools (vs 0/30 in the
untreated control group).
Before entering the study, children must have a diagnosis of Autism from a psychologist,
neurologist or a psychiatrist. Part of initial screening will include blood tests for IgE allergies, a
five minute interactive video, initial evaluations in the office and functional testing. The NAR
Foundation will pay for these evaluations. This translates to over $3000.00 and this will be free
for you. All children who desire to participate in the study must go through a pre-screening
using laboratory testing for serum IgE-specic allergens. If the children have high IgE readings on
foods they will not be admitted to this Autism study. The foundation is trying to raise more
funds through private funding towards this global autism study. If the foundation is successful in
raising enough funds, then each child will be paid $10-15.00 USD towards the expense of
transportation to the practitioner’s office to bring your child for treatment. If the funds come
through, then the foundation will also pay partial payment of your visits to your practitioners at
the rate of $45/treatment. If we do not get more funding, your transportation cost and doctor’s
daily visit will not be paid.
This will be a placebo controlled study. No one in the study (including the administrators, your
treating practitioner or any organizer) will know who is in the treatment group or who is in the
placebo group except the Statistician. After the completion of the study the list of treating
children and the placebo children will be revealed by the statistician. If your child was in the
placebo group, after the completion and evaluation of the study group, he/she will be treated for
the list of 36 samples by your doctor/practitioner.
Initially, the children will be treated twice a week over 4-6 months for 36 key groups of allergens.
Treatments are simple and gentle, using acupressure and taking ~ 30 minutes. Each treatment
can eliminate one food sensitivity, and children will need to avoid the treated food for 25 hours
after each treatment. The food avoidance list will be provided to you after each treatment by your
treating NAET practitioner. The children are permitted to continue their usual therapies they
were on prior to entering the study.
Participating practitioner’s names, address, email contact will be listed on our website:
www.naet.com under GLOBAL AUTISM STUDY once we complete the selection of
participating doctors. Then you can contact a practitioner near you to enroll your child in the
study. We invite health practitioners to refer children with autism for the study as well.
After completion of the treatments for 36 food groups, both the treatment and placebo group will
be reevaluated for all initial evaluations. Children in the placebo group will be offered free
treatments after they complete the study at the rate of $45.00 visit and travel expense. If we do
not receive funding then there won’t be any reimbursement for the travel cost and the
practitioners will treat you free or at a reduced fee.
If you are interested to participate in this study, you may send you child’s detailed information to the email address below to register for enrollment into the study or you may contact your local practitioner participants from the list on the website. www.naet.com.
Children for this study should not have received NAET treatments prior to entering the study. We will require a letter from your physician confirming your child’s autism diagnosis.
