journey from Personhood to Parenthood was a difficult one for me,
made all the more complicated by autism. I was very lucky to have
some terrific help and support at a time when there was not a lot
of support for families like ours. I have compiled a brief description
of our journey and helpful tips we found along the way into this
short PDF formatted e-Book, for you.

are so many reports of success with autism and the GFCF Diet that
I wanted to try it with my Iris. After being off dairy for 6 months
- and doing quite well - we started it was time to remove the wheat
and glutein from her diet as well. I
have compiled my efforts here - including instructions from
nutritionists, recipes and product recommendations. To add your
information to the list, please visit GFCFKids
on Facebook - all content and input welcome. *Available in

daughter of Naturopathic Physicians, I get a lot of herbal and natural
health information that has worked wonders for my family. I thought
it would be great to share this information with other families,
have compiled my efforts here - including links for product
recommendations and suppliers. Feel free to visit Herb4Kids
on Facebook for information and more.
mother of a severaly autistic child, I have learned about resources
that are available for families with special needs and I wanted
to have a spot where I could post the information. We have been
through Social Security Disability and In Home Support Services,
but the information was not alway easy to find, so
have compiled my efforts here - I am just getting started with
this and some of the links have been recommended by others, but
I have not yet had the time to go through and check them all myself
(I will note the ones I know, so you can easily see). Check back
or send suggestions
to help this area grow.
to autism in my family, I started doing Reiki, with great success
on some. I think that it helps with my daughter, though that is
harder to measure with no verbal feedback. If you are interested
in Reiki healing energy, please contact
me. I can am even learning to do it over distances, and would
love people to work with.
be very difficult to find out what some children need, nutritionally,
to function optimally. This Compass Tool can be very helpful in
measuring what herbal supplements will benefit a person most, simply
by having that person hold their hand on the comfortable mouse-like
measuring device - and since it can be done with surrogate testing,
you don't have to rely upon a child to sit still for too long. I
tried this and was amazed by the testing and would recommend it
to anyone looking for information from a non-verbal child. Please
for more information on using this tool.

the general public that their child is autistic. I have tried to
make them here - Zazzle.com
