Our journey into the world of autism started in April 2010 when my oldest child (then just 2 1/2 years old) was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. At the time, he was nonverbal, and we weren’t given much hope (or much in the way of resources) in order to help him.
Thankfully there are many more resources available now than there were then, but sadly, that is because there are also many, many more children with autism. This epidemic has changed the way we view childhood and developmental milestones, and has opened large heated debates across the country and around the world.
I started my first website in 2014 as a way to share what I learned over the years through recovering my son from his autism diagnosis; what I do continues to evolve, but my heart remains the same: I want to be there for you, especially in those moments when you feel alone and scared. If your child was diagnosed with autism (or Lyme, or ADHD, or you’re just battling to get them to sleep at night, or they never seem to be healthy, or whatever it may be) please feel free to reach out to me if you can’t find the answers that you seek by searching through the posts and pages of this website.
Where to Start:
While the GAPS Nutritional Program is valuable for people with a variety of different diagnoses, it was created with autism in mind, as Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride worked (and succeeded!) at recovering her son from autism. (You can learn more about GAPS here.)
And while diet is a huge key for helping persons with autism (as over 90% suffer from a variety of digestive complaints), there are also many facets that make up autism recovery. Below you will find links to various video classes and articles I have created as well as some of my favorite resources for helping children recover from autism.
