It baffles my mind when I read the emails from parent's of autistic children and what they will do to "cure" their children. How dare they have a child that is not typical. I have read where parent's are upset that they have to find ways to "improve" their children's lives. How sad their own lives must be.
We are the parent's of 5 autistic children. We were approached by a famous doctor to start intervention for our children to "recover" them. This would be of no cost to us, of course? Once we started talking with this organization, we realized the things they wanted done was not anything we would put our children through. They wanted to chelate them, change their diets, scope their intestines (after a 2 day fast), draw blood every week, give them vitamins and minerals, give them B12 shots, and so forth. Then the bottom line came up. It would cost us. They were going to try to charge Medicaid. Then and there I put a stop to all talks. I called the doctor and told them I want proof these methods work. Show me a "recovered" autistic child. They cannot do this. Know why? There are no "recovered" autistic children.
- I am the proud mother of 6 children. 5 of our children have autism. We do not feel our world has ended, but just begun. We do not chelate, intervene biochemically, give shots of any kind, practice ABA, etc. We treat them as we treat any humanbeing. We treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same from them. They are exceptional children.
