  1. I have lived my whole life being told I was different, special, and had autism. At 6 years of age I moved from Europe to Asia which as you can imagine is a very traumatizing experience for a 6 year old to undergo. This , coupled with me being told I had autism made me feel inferior, less confident, more introverted up to a point where I my self started to exhibit symptoms of autism. Today I told myself 'I don't have autism' and went the whole day not thinking I don't have it and I felt confident, I looked people in the eye and was able to socialize well. I firmly believe that either I had autism at one point and since recovered, or never had it to begin with and my mind just made up the symptoms since I was constantly told I did indeed have it

  2. I have Autism and while it can be treated dont BS me that there is a cure. If you believe there is cure then you do not understand what autism actually is.

  3. TRATMENTS .. , EVERYONE FROM BOSTON CHILDREN HOSPITAL OF HARVARD TO SAN DIEGO INSTITUTE OF AUTISIM , ABA IS THE FIRST CHOICE BUT OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY AND SPEECH THERAPHY ARE NOMINATED IN THE TOP 3 HERE TOO .. FOR BEST OUTCOMES IN MNY CHILDREN ……..
    SO THE PROBLEM IS THAT ABA BY ITSELF IS VERY EXPENSIVE , THEN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY THEN A SPEECH THERAPY , IT COST 3500 EUROS PER MONTH .. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE THAT KIND OF INCOME? .. I MEAN .. THE GOVERMENTS HAD THE MORAL OBLIGATION OF HELPING THE CITIZENS IN THIS SITUATION NO MORE WELLFARE .? OK THEN THE ANSWER .. WILL BE I THINK VERY SOON VIOLENCE ..

  4. Autism is medical and Treatable! My son is living proof that kids can get better! The “experts” said Ryan would need to be institutionalized. But today, Ryan is 29 and an aerospace engineer. Sadly, the general public and most doctors don’t even know the R-WORD (recovery) is possible. Here is news story on KCAL 9 about Ryan:

    We need to stop looking at this backwards. “Autism” is not the cause of the medical conditions our children suffer from. In reality it is the other way around, our children have immune systems that don’t function properly. What our children more accurately suffer from is “autoimmune encephalitis.” This serious medical condition happens when the immune system attacks the brain and causes inflammation. That reduces blood flow and impairs function. You can preview Ryan's recovery story in my book called "I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE" on Amazon or at http://a.co/ihopgBx All profits go to AutismOne and Dr. Sue Swedo's treatment clinics.

    Once you find the right doctor and treat your child’s autism, the symptoms diminish in intensity. That’s when it becomes possible to teach your children what they couldn’t learn before. Join me at the AutismOne conference in Chicago in May to learn cutting edge treatments from researchers, doctors, and researchers from all over the world. For information go to www. autismone.org

    Here are two articles that may also interest you and give you the cliff notes on how we helped Ryan:

    • Click on the following link to see a picture of my son, Ryan, on the cover of the Autism Eye Magazine and to read the article he wrote. http://autism-and-treatment.com/beating-autism/articles-that-help/ryans-story-in-autism-eye-magazine/

    Ryan nailed it when he said,” "Some people think we should just accept autism. And that if a child is treated, it changes who that kid is. I am still the same person I was, only now I’m happy and can enjoy life. It is hard to understand that children are not receiving proper medical treatment because some people think we should celebrate autism. When doctors believe the medical issues associated with autism are just part of a 'developmental disorder' children are not treated for the same medical conditions as every other kid. Is that really okay?"

    • And here is one I wrote for the Autism File Magazine called “Shattering Myths.” http://autism-and-treatment.com/beating-autism/articles-that-help/shattering-myths/

  5. The first study to ever show full recovery from autism is possible was in Lovaas' 1993 follow-up study (the original 1987 study which showed 47% had "normal education and intellectual functioning" and was endorsed by the Surgeon General in 1999) showed that 42% fully recovered from the autism spectrum when teenagers, were indistinguishable from typically-developing children their age and "…demonstrated adequate development in adaptive and social skills within the normal range" (McEachin, Smith, et. al., p.368, 1993).
