I enjoy being around my son. He is a true joy in my life whereas once upon a time, I felt like so many of you, “Why me? What now? HELP!” It does get better. Your child can get better. Do not give up on the diet, it DOES work!
He is mainstreamed for about half his day at school and we look forward to his continued growth over the next several years. There is no doubt in our minds that he will graduate high school and go on to college pursuing his interests in computers and electronics.
Before the diagnosis, we “knew” it was going to come. He was already enrolled in a school IEP program since February of that year. By May, we really started to suspect autism and already started to research everything we could while seeking an official diagnosis.
I hope to inspire and give hope to other parents. There is hope out there in treatments that your doctor may not tell you about or ‘believe’ in. I spoke to my pediatricians about this program, but they brushed it off as ‘hogwash.”
Excitotoxins Strong scientific evidence suggests these substances could cause brain damage in children, adolescents and adults; with strong emphasis on children and elderly individuals. They may affect the development of a child’s nervous system; resulting in learning disabilities and emotional difficulties later in life. It has also been determined that the placental barrier is not […]
Our twins, Teddy & Tara, were born on June 24th, 2008. They were perfect, healthy babies. We realized how lucky we were and never took a second for granted as I had had an extremely difficult pregnancy.
In 2006, we welcomed another baby boy into our family. Luke was born with a shock of jet black hair and a beautiful disposition. He was an easy-going baby, breastfed well (always hungry) and was a gorgeous brother to Jack.
Marcus was diagnosed with autism two months before his third birthday. There were signs that something was not quite right since he was a baby, but he was our first child and we didn’t know any better.
While I write this story, I am looking at my son, Beau. He is happily sitting on the couch wearing shorts and a t-shirt, munching on pistachios, and grinning while watching Ghostbusters, a movie he specifically requested to watch. To most people, this would be a very ordinary scene.
Most parents will never forget the day they realized their child had autism. For me, it was the day we went to the circus. That was the day my denial ended, and our autism journey started.
Our firstborn, Wesley was born in May 2004. My pregnancy was pretty normal, except for a little mild preterm labor in my third trimester. He was born at 36 ½ weeks and was healthy.
They say autism is a marathon, not a sprint, and I have to say I agree with that sentiment. Our marathon began in 2006 with the arrival of my identical twin sons, born at 26 weeks.
Medical professionals gave them little hope. “We had to become our child’s advocate,” says Sue. “We had to find doctors we could trust. We were living under a veil of bleakness, feeling isolated.”
When your child is on a special diet for medical reasons, getting the correct wording into your child’s IEP is very important to minimize dangerous infractions. What parents must provide Parents must get a letter from their doctor stating that for medical reasons, your child cannot have certain foods (which must be listed). The letter […]
