Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
It means so much to me to spread the word about how our kids can be treated, helped and even be recovered through biomed interventions. We caught my son's ASD very early and began implementing changes so quickly and I think that's why he's doing so well today. I want to share what I've learned so that other kids can improve too. I'd also like to help make sure that younger siblings do not become affected by autism ... it IS possible to intervene before an ASD sets in, as I have seen with my younger son.

My son regressed after vaccinations and I understand that some parents don't want to hear or believe that. I respect everyone's opinions and know that every parent has their child's best interest at heart. I have worked closely along side my husband for the past 14 years with Variety- the Children's Charity and am familiar with many disabilities other than autism.

Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
I truly believe that our children are sick and need help healing. I have an older child and have done so much - I have a lot to share. I enjoy helping other families with navagating the spider web of therapies out there.

Child's Symptoms: ADHD, Combined type; Anxiety Disorder with strong obsessive compulsive tendencies, PDD NOS, Speech Delay, Severe sensitivity to textures and lights
Helpful Therapies: A constant Structured Environment, and following through has proven to be the most helpful in my case. My son does also take medication, it can't always be avoided as much as we would all like to think it could be.

There is no real cure, only learning yourself how to handle such situations, which is where being a parent comes into play.

Strengths: I have been through the hitting, screaming, destroying behaviors that come along with this disorder, and I have had help in understanding and learning what the different signs of my sons diagnosis are. I want to be there for someone else in return.

Why I became a
Rescue Angel:
I would like to offer hope to other parents who are trying to deal with their child's diagnosis of autism, a hope that shows that autism is a treatable, biomedical disorder. Their child's health and mental function may be significantly improved with therapy.
