Dr. Kyle Van Dyke focuses on treating children with special needs and their family members; approaching each person as an individual, not as a label.

The parent, child, and doctor form the core team. Dr. Van Dyke bases his approach on scientifically sound biochemical processes. Dr. Van Dyke is the kind of doctor that will make you feel comfortable enough to discuss all issues and concerns while motivating you to continue to seek answers and progress.
Dr. Kyle Van Dyke also draws from his experience as a father. From the diagnosis denial through the toll of diet and supplements, the Van Dyke family has grown and learned. Ryan has made enormous progress using the Defeat Autism Now approach! The rest of the Van Dyke family includes Annette (a pharmacist) and daughter, Kylie. As a family, the Van Dyke's enjoy traveling, parks, and playing with trains.
