As far as a safe dose, this is a question that should be answered by your pediatrician.  Regarding the effectiveness, I'm not sure what you are looking for.  There is no empirical support for vitamin and mineral therapies for autism.  If this is addressing some medical need, that's one thing, but don't expect an improvement in the child's learning or behavior associated with an autism diagnosis.
