Meet the Author

A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and of the Jackson Memorial Hospital/​University of Miami Pediatric Residency Program, Dr. Buckley developed an abiding interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders when her daughter regressed into the world of autism at four years of age.

Her daughter’s dramatic recovery ignited a passion for helping other families similarly affected. She maintains a unique practice in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida combining neurotypical primary care pediatrics, a fucntional/​integrative medicine approach to autism spectrum disorders, professional athletes, and individuals of all ages devoted to restoring their health and optimizing their function.

Healing our Autistic Children was written to fill a need that became apparent as she worked in her medical community and with families from all over the world. There were communication gaps about how to heal children with autism that needed bridging. Mothers were struggling to help fathers understand how to start on the road to recovery. Parents were struggling to communicate with therapists- improving their child’s health was making therapy go faster and better. And busy physicians who had no time were perplexed by behavioral improvements occurring because of a diet and supplementation. So she wrote a book to bridge those communication gaps. Using real life analogies and patient stories, including those of her own daughter’s recovery, she presents the complex science in understandable terms and includes some of the seminal published medical literature at the end of the book.

Dr. Buckley is now a frequent national and international speaker at leading autism conferences. In addition to training other physicians in autism treatment, she has developed a patented antioxidant formula for peri-vaccination and peri-oxidative stressor use. Dr. Buckley co-founded HEAL! (Healing Every Autistic Life!), and more recently founded the HealthyUNow Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit that is building centralized, comprehensive care communities- virtual and physical- for children with autism and their families.

In addition to surviving breast cancer in late 2009, she continues to be actively involved in research and raising a family with the help of a wonderfully supportive family.
