What to do when your child have autism

ADHD-Asperger-Autism, Children, Diets

I read this very inspiring article on a mother who struggled with both her daughters who were initially diagnosed with autism. The mother, Marissa wrote on how when her daughter had initially suffered from tantrums, mood swings, tip toed walking, hyperactive, spinning and other signs of children with autism. Her daughter was even self abusive, and hurt herself till she bled.

At first the mother thought that her daughter was seeking for attention. But as her daughter become more and more uncontrollable, research and with medical diagnosis confirmed that her daughter had autism. When Marissa gave birth to her second daughter, the baby was also showing signs of autism- in fact, her regression was even quicker.

At first, Marissa was told by doctors that there was nothing much they could do. The children were prescribed with medication and told to enrol in special schools and long term care, possibly getting her daughter institutionalized.

But the boundless and selfless love that a mother have her children means that she would never give up- in this case, the mother explored all alternative therapies available.

Her children was being placed on special diets (Gluten Free) and Casein Free Diet (GFCF diet) to curb food allergies. MSG, eggs, preservatives and chemicals were being eliminated. The children were also sent for Applied Behavourial Analysis (ABA).

Today, her eldest child recover in 2 years and declared to be within the non autistic range. The girl went to a normal kindergarten and no one noticed anything different about her.
