Hi John, I have a 7 year old, with mild symtoms of autism, he has diagnosis, of ADHD, Aspergers and Tourettes, but all of these as he is developing, seem to be coming more and more under control. I took all dairy and gluten out of his diet about a year ago, and this seems to have had a huge effect, I also work by the book on all the parenting tips I have been given through child physcholgists which has helped him a lot also. My son is not and never has been severe so it might have been easier in his case with a bit of minor adjustment to set him on a better path. He is in mainstream school but they are applying for a teachers aid for him, as he cannot focus enough to get any work done, but he is not as disruptive as he used to be, he is not on any medication, I'm hoping a teachers aid will be enough to get him on the right track in school, I don't like the sound of the side effects of ritalin, which was recommended for him.

Hi John, i think it depends where on the spectrum your child is,whether there completely non-verbal etc. I don't think there is a "cure" but if you are lucky enough to find the right people to work with them and have alot of faith and patience. early intervention and keeping your child engaged as much as you can really helps. my 2 1/2 year old son started receiving services 2 months ago and although its a slow process any progress we see is a blessing.

Hi John, I have never met a child that has recovered from autism. However, in the book "Son Rise, the Miricle Continues", it speaks of various cases of this. Also, I found a video online, that a doctor did with children that have recovered. It had something to do with governer Schwartneger in CA, outlawing harmful vaccinations. I can't recall the Psychologist's name. He is a big wig in the Autism scene. His son recovered from autism. The video was very moving. I have hope. My son is going to be 6 this month and is diagnosed with PDD-NOS. If I get the doctor's name, I'll shoot it your way. Good luck with your search. Post anything you may find. I'm interested.

Yet to meet a "recovered " child but i have been "lucky" that my son did a ABA programme from the age of 3 1/2 for four years and is now a totally different child.
We were practically housebound with him and now he is a joy to be with. Practically normal( whatever normal is!)

No cure for autism to date. These kids are intelligent who just can't communicate like we do and therefore in their frustration they have melt downs. People treat them like they are retarded and majority are not - they are smart. We need to educate the public.

Teach you child sign language. Autistic babies, toddlers, kids can learn this quickly and it cuts down their frustration in not being able to talk directly to you.

Hi John,
I have a 9 year old son who is almost recovered thanks to chelation therapy and biomeds. I personally know 3 kids who have fully recovered from being moderatly autistic. You should really look into finding a DAN doctor and check out www.generationrescue.org for more info. Also, at the last Dan conference, they had a group of recovered autistic kids speaking on stage.........you can check out the video hear http://www.autism-recoveredchildren.com/

Legislation alert!!! Please search your state legislature site to see if they have enacted a bill to force insurance companies to provide coverage for treatment of autism. Most states allow insurance companies to exclude autism from their policies. Several states have proposed bills, but they have not gone to vote. My state, Michigan, has been sitting on this bill for 3 yrs and it doesn't look like it will be voted on any time soon. Write to your senators and let's get this done !!! :)

I have never heard of a cure but I have heard of children overcoming parts of the autism. They can score less on the scale, but autism is a diagnosis that will follow them for life. As for signing make sure your child is ready or willing to accept it. We have tried with our child 10+ times and he gets even more fustrated and we take a big set back with the progress. Since we have completely illuminated it he is doing better. His words are not perfect but they are some sort of verbal communication. I have a post on here "NEW TREATMENT FOR AUTISM" maybe it's something you would be interested in. I learned about it from my son's teachers. It may be worth a try. GOODLUCK

Generation Rescue is a parent-founded, parent-funded, and parent-led organization. Our mission is to share the truth with parents about the cause of their child’s developmental disabilities so they can focus on treatment.

Generation Rescue believes that childhood neurological disorders such as autism, Asperger's, ADHD/ADD, speech delay, sensory integration disorder, and many other developmental delays are all misdiagnoses for mercury poisoning.

When you know cause, you can focus on cure.Thousands of parents are curing their children by removing the mercury from their children's bodies. We want you, the parent, to know the truth.

I am an ABA Therapist. I have seen significant improvement in many children (1 example: my last client's diagnosis was changed from low functioning to high functioning while I worked with him) through the use of intensive ABA therapy, and my supervisor has 'recovered' 3 children. (This means, a child with a previous diagnosis of autism was independantly reviewed by 3 different paediatricians after a few years of ABA, and diagnosed by all as being within the normal range of development.

Your child may or may not have that potential, but his life and overall functioning can probably, at the very least, be significantly improved through intensive behavioural treatment.

Best of luck.

A good book written by a phd in animal science who is autistic. Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin. This should give you some hope and insights.

Hi, my children were both very late talkers (2nd one is 3 1/2 and not talking much yet). My older boy is 8 and was diagnosed with PDD (a type of autism) when he was 3 or 4. We put him on cod liver oil and I think that helped. Anyway, he is fine now. The best thing to do is pray, tell your heavenly father what you want and that you believe he can do it.

3 1/2 is pretty early to say your child has autism. My son had all the symptoms that the "experts" call autism, I actually had to fight with a child psychologist who wanted to get him for her "program".

He's fine now, a little hyper, but I would say he's normal. Don't let child psychologists buffalo you with their non-science.

My son, Layton, was diagnosed with moderate autism and 2 years and 2 mons. old. I began the bio-medical approach and lots of therapy and of course prayer. My son was undiagnosed at the age of 2 years and 11 months old. He is a miracle tied with a lot of hard work. Good luck with all you do, Buffie

My son has gone from severe autism (like throwing things, non verbal and down right unmanageble) to a child can have a conversation with you and loves huggs and attention. He is now classified as high functioning. I have briefly used the GFC diet and then I found this tonic. It works slowly but I have seen improvement, it aids in the healing of his digestive tract which is found to be linked to autisim. Try this website www.mymangosteen.com/ehawth28. I am still trying to find a DAN doctor willing to conduct the chelation therapy. Because my son has progressed so far, most Dr's are like "be happy with what you have" so I keep looking. Good luck I understand that not everything works for every child, but as a parent with an autistic son I understand the drive to do and try anything and everything to get your son better.

A mother wrote a book about her daughter's recovery from autism. I saw her on Soap Talk with Lisa Rinna. Her daughter was on too. She's like 7 and recovered. The lady's website is www.awakeningashley.com

i have four children with atism....aged between 23 and 17....i have heard of so called cures but to be honest having also worked with children on the spectrum before i had my own, i do not believe there are any cures....but...i have found that a good school, good educational progamme tailored to suit your child, and tons of patience can work wonders! my children arent cured, but they can hold a converstion on many many subjects, gained good grades in school & college, work (two so far) and are happy in themselves....its never going to be easy but then life never is!

I dated a lady whos son(he was nearly 21, and looked like a little child) was absolutely out-of-control, and her technique was to place him in front of three to four televisions, as he rompped around the house grunting and grabbing at her arm, forcing her to change the tapes or the dvds so he can watch what he wanted at that moment.

I am not cold, nor unaffected by this poor, unfortunate young man's condition; but her accomodation is not providing him nor encouraging him to be the best that he can be. In fact, he is frankly a little monster. And, he knows with whom he can get away with poor behaviour, and with whom he cannot. He is also suffering from severe deformity of the low-back and some paralysis in his legs. His face tells of feeblemindedness, and I am sure his "loving mother" has contributed to this situation.

I frankly could no longer tolerate his behaviour and our relationship fizzled out.

I am a person who has "recovered" from Autism and by that I mean I have over come I can pretty much say all of what I had when I was a child. I was completely non verbal till I was about 4 then I started to use some words and with the work I got from my mother and The Childrens Center which in my state is a center that helps children with disabilities you couldnt even tell to this day. I took me a lil longer to learn things in elementry then most kids and somethings still take me a lil longer butt in areas I am very bright and if you can find the right people your child will make progress not saying they will overcome it completely but you will see a difference. Just make it seem like its a fun thing not people telling them what to do all the time because thats what my father did and when he did that I would just shut down.

Hi John, Let me tell you YES!!YES YES Children do recover!!!!!. They all recover to varying levels. It depends on their complexities and their responses, family diligence, prayer and a million other interventions. I do know one one little girl personally who has completely recovered and a little boy 31/2 that is 85% of the way recovered. My son Josiah now 6 has made fanominal progress, he still has mountains to climb but our progress continues. There is hope, be well and keep believing in progress. Blessings Kim

how do ucure autisim 

Name: heather | Date: Jul 25th, 2006 7:31 PM
I am a nurse and I have to agree with those who say there are no cures, only treatments for the hope of improvement. My own 3 year old son scored 32 on the CARS Vineland test (which is mild Autism), but his doctor wants to hold out on giving him an Autistic diagnosis since my son is showing such rapid improvement. I have found that early intervention has played a big part in his improvement so far. And in order to treat it, you need to know what areas of their development are affected the most. Time Magazine just had a great article on Autism, and you can read it for free at http://iqte.st/blog/?p=235 I also recommend reevaluations every couple of years to mark your son's improvements and key in on therapy for those problem areas that are more prevalent at that time.
