I have just read a local autism support groups emails from today. I am trying so hard to keep my cool and not just tell them what I think. Please stop me....
A mother who insists both of her children have autism, without a dr. diagnosis, is complaining because her husband is putting a stop to her chelating, ABA, biomedical crap. They have spent $56,000.00 just this year.
She has 2 of the most beautiful children I have ever met. The little boy wants to know why he is different from the other kids. She tells him that he has autism and she is going to make him better. Better than What? That is what I want to know. She has convinced her 3 year old daughter that she is recovered from autism.
She also wrote today that ABA is known for recovering children. Please send me proof. I need PROOF.
I say Amen to parent's like Soapbox Mom. I thank God I found her blog so that I know there are sane people our there.
We, as parent's, did not ask for autistic children. But, I really do not think my children would be who they are without autism. They are creative, funny, quirky, loving, adorable, caring humans. I hope that we had alot to do with that. I know ABA, biomedical interventions or chelation didn't.
More power to us parent's who love our children for not being "normal". More power to our children for teaching us that it is okay to be above the
- 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.
