More and more families of children with special needs are turning to complementary, integrative or alternative medicine. These treatment options are used in addition to, or in place of, traditional western medicine. The Center for Infants and Children with Special Needs provides reliable information and resources.
Generally complementary, alternative and/or integrative medicine (CAM) can be defined as a broad set of healthcare practices that are not easily integrated into the dominant health care model, because they pose significant challenges to societal beliefs and practices.
To decide whether or not a complementary, alternative and/or integrative medicine is right for your child, here are some important guidelines:
The Center for Infants and Children with Special Needs at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has put together a list of web sites that provide information about alternative therapies. These resources will help educate parents and professionals about the complex issues sometimes involved, as well as the risks and benefits of specific therapies.
