ALONE there is little we can do about autism
TOGETHER recovery is possible!

Your Child Was Just Diagnosed... Now What?
Hearing that your child has autism is frightening and overwhelming. The social isolation, stress and anxiety that comes with the diagnosis can be paralyzing. We don’t know which professionals to believe or what information is credible. I was once was where you are now. I didn’t know my son could get better. The "experts" told us that Ryan would need to be institutionalized and said that...
there was NO recovery...there was NO cure...there was NO hope.
Ryan's autism diagnosis ripped away every dream my husband and I had for our child. Our son was stranded on Autism Island, and our family was stuck there with him.
We must NOT accept the “myths” that come with an autism diagnosis.
My son now does everything the “experts” said he would never be able to do. Today Ryan is an engineer at a major aerospace company. He travels, surfs, and goes to sporting events with his friends. Ryan owns his own home. If you had told me any of this could be possible when my son was still that weird little kid in middle school I wouldn’t have believed you. This is the same kid who was not invited to a single birthday party when he was in elementary school.
There IS hope… it IS possible to have a different outcome for children with autism!
My book I Know You’re in There—Winning Our War Against Autism will help you RETHINK autism and show you how to fight back. (Preview Ryan's story on Amazon or at http://a.co/fwFk6kD). Segments of the book are written by every member of our family including Ryan himself. All profits from my book go to autism causes.
Although it has been over twenty-five years since Ryan was diagnosed, the general public and many doctors don’t realize that that what we call “autism spectrum disorder" (ASD) is actually a neuroimmune condition that results, in most part, from a compromised/dysregulated immune system. Many pediatricians still believe that behavioral interventions are the only treatment for children with autism, ADHD, ADD, and Sensory Processing Disorder.
Autism IS medical and TREATABLE!
When we help our children regain their health and we can reduce the "total load" on their broken immune systems, that’s when children improve and they can learn what they couldn't before. Only a warrior parent has the determination, stamina and commitment to take on the seemingly insurmountable task of recovery. We are the ones who will keep working at this in spite of how exhausted or discouraged we feel.
Recovery is never easy. But you can do this and I will be here to help. I never charge for anything I do. I just want your kids to have what my son now has. Contact me if you need help finding a doctor or if I can answer any questions.
Autism may not come with a manual, but when a family never gives up remarkable things can happen. Let’s work together to come up with a plan to help the child you know is in there. And God help anyone who gets in our way!
