Helpful Therapies: Floortime ABA and medical intervention
How Therapy Helped: Significantly
Strengths: I am pretty knowledgeable about about biomedical interventions as well as all the services that are out there to help our children. My daughter has worked with a bunch of agencies within MA.
Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
I would like to help other mothers,children and families by sharing my experiences with my daughter's biomedical interventions. I have learned a lot about all the interventions through reading, attending a 4 day conference and trying many interventions on my daughter. I would like to give the families the hope and knowledge that it is possible that our children can get significantly better. I first heard about biomedical intervention by watching Jenny Mc Carthy on Oprah and reading her books. No doctors told me about any biomedical interventions and I had never heard about a DAN doctor until I heard Jenny speak on Oprah

Child's Symptoms: Stress, anxiety, tantrums, meltdowns,sensory issues, inflexibility and social misunderstandings. Defeat Autism Now doctor (DAN!) found candida overgrowth, and heavy metal toxicity. Diagnoses-Asperger's Syndrome
Helpful Therapies: Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), anti-fungals, probiotics, B-6, minerals, Glutathione, MB12 shots. Was then responsive to social skills and OT.
How Therapy Helped: Significantly
Strengths: Asperger's Syndrome, and treating any ASD through the DAN! program.
Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
It was not until a year after our son was diagnosed that we found the ARI and DAN! We were astounded that no one had recommended this to us before! I have been very eager to tell our story, and help other families because I believe strongly that every family of a newly diagnosed child needs to know that there is real treatment that gets to the root of the problem. At local Autism organizations I have talked about these treatments, and the staff have shut me down. These families need to know, and they need real help and support.

Child's Symptoms: No talking, no pointing, did not answer to his name, no pretend play, constant jumping, huge GI issues, tippy toe walking, loved to spin wheels and study lines
Helpful Therapies: ABA, antifungal parade, anti parasite, anti bacteria treatment, GF/CF diet, SCD diet, B12 shots!!, epsom salt baths, cod liver oil, vitamins, glutathione IV's & cream, etc..
How Therapy Helped: Significantly
Strengths: PDD-NOS, cape cod early intervention options, DAN Conference, tried a few different DAN dr's, tried using private pay therapists vs. school provided, we are just about ready to try chelation as our sons GI issues are finally under control. We will also be seeking out HBOT for our son in the future.
Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
I wish we would have access to someone in the same boat to talk to when our child was first diagnosed, but because of confidentiality laws our early intervention team could not direct us to any folks. I found later that there were very few taking advantage of Biomedical treatments and was shocked. I can only think it is because they don't have access to the information that they are not trying it. A good DAN Dr. is an early essential!!
