I am highly disappointed at this place. When I told the waitress our son has autism, her response was:" I am so sorry.." silence then awkward moment.

I went to Joes last friday with a few friends to celebrate our birthdays and donate to the Autism organization and the employees seemed not to know what I was talking about nor offered any effort. I was very disappointed and felt discouraged. My daughter is Autistic and this was a huge heartbreakibg experience for her.

On March 29, 2012, the US Centers for Disease Control reported startling evidence: the number of children diagnosed with autism in the United States increased 25% between 2006 and 2008. The autism rate jumped from 1 in 100 (2006) to 1 in 88 children (2008). The autism rate is even higher for boys: one in 54 compared to girls, one in 252.

wait. for it....in a another year they will tell us more of what we have known. (I feel) These reports are more for the NT community and not the families/parents in the ASD communities.

My son met her too. She was very inspiring to both of us. I loved her attitude and the speech she gave. She is amazing.

Completely agree. She is intimidating, opinionated, and a forceful advocate for those on the spectrum. Her no nonsense push and pull reminds me of the nuns of my childhood. She has a clear vision of what is possible and what it takes to get there.

I so wish i could meet her. My 2 toddlers are autistic. 1 is non verbal. Id love her input on how to understand him. And the other is very similar to her as far sensory things.

People who have never lived with or cared for someone especially a child with Autism won't understand they will ask why then why don't you make him eat other foods or tell him to eat what you've made or bought or he can go without , well he prefers certain foods or he won't eat anything . it's not a fit it's just him and our lives with him .

Hamburger, plain. Absolutely nothing but a bun and a slab of meat. No onions no cheese and for Christ's sake no pickles. I'll kill you if you put pickles on it, I swear!

There is a difference between a picky eater and an autistic eater. There is nothing "encouraging" about it. It's about comfort and order. It's about getting out into the real world and realizing you can have the same thing you have at home. It's about happiness knowing you can be a part of different situations as long as some things are the same.

We started probiotics a month ago and my nonverbal daughter has been making so much progress since the start of week 2. We just do it every other day but the past week she has been using 3-4 word sentences.

My son takes pro-biotic twice a day because my friend- who is a scientist told me the gut and the brain are connected. I give my son the OTC version from Trader Joes and his behavior has improved and we barely have to give me indigestion medicine... maybe twice a month vs. 3-4 a day..... if you can try I hope it helps with your child.... I know it helped mine!
04/25/2017 at 00:36
So it's been a month since I started and the one thing I noticed improved was his sleep which was driving me crazy. He kept waking up randomly fully awake at 2,3,4 am more than once a week for quite some time now. The only I've done different is probiotic. He still gets up often but he goes back to sleep and that's amazing for me.

This is my amazing daughter, HOWEVER, for all the incredible things she has accomplished, she DOES NOT possess common sense awareness to live alone. What happens to her now???? I get NO, help for her... NONE!

You'd be surprised at what people with autism can actually do in life.
Like myself - diagnosed with Asperger syndrome at age 4, but today I have a good job, commitments to two Scout groups (and a Scout-based theatre group), and interests in photography and travelling.
In short, autism isn't a burden on life and can't be eliminated altogether - you can work around it.
04/24/2017 at 04:42
I have autism and I've had many problems with anxiety and stress. Autism is something you have to deal with and it's something that can't be helped.

I know they cannot take large crowds loud noises, change of rputine, their picky eaters, they don't take well with touch at times, some afraid of fire works, popping of balloons etc
