BARBARA FISCHKIN ON TREATING AN OLDER AUTISTIC CHILD
Barbara Fischkin has a powerful piece titled, Why An Older Autism Mom Marched With Robert Kennedy Jr., Jenny McCarthy And Jim Carrey At Green The Vaccines running HERE at Huffington Post.
Please leave her plenty of comments at HuffPo.
Here's a snippet:
Late last year we took our son to a doctor who treats environmental toxicity and slowly as he gets cleaned out he is making progress, taking new steps. Literal steps. We can ask him to go upstairs and get his shoes on and he does. We don't have to follow him to the closet to make sure he gets there and gets it done.
He used to have eight bowel movements a day. Since he started treatment he usually has one or two. He seems more focused. His pediatrician who has known him since he was diagnosed saw him earlier this month for his yearly check-up and pronounced him "a different child."
One of the mothers who helped me to understand the bio-medical treatments my son Dan is now receiving was Kim Stagliano. I read what she wrote and I learned. As I did from Dan Olmsted. Thank you so much Age of Autism.
