A message for my friends...

The other night I was telling some friends about this protocol I was led to by my son’s neurologist.  She didn’t tell me directly, because she couldn’t as an M.D., but she led me to it  J.  When I researched the protocol’s book Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, by Kerri Rivera on Amazon (2nd Edition), I found the stories of so many older children whose families had tried everything and the kids have been labeled as non-responders (woo-hoo! My kinda kid!).  These children are responding to this protocol and many of them are recovering.  Obviously, some take longer than others.  The older ones take longer than the little ones.

The nice thing about it too is that they use the ATEC score (a quick test to determine how autistic a child is) as a guide of whether or not the kids are getting better.  Well, my boy started with an ATEC of 99 (which is very high given that below 10 is considered recovered).  We’ve been doing a super low and slow protocol (because of his seizures) for the past 7 months and he’s now at 71.  His drop seizures stopped after 4 weeks, although we’re still dealing with grand-mals.
