Autism recovered?

Medical experts say it's not possible to recover autism. We have living proof in the form of three children, that it IS possible. In my blog you will find recovery stories, along with information regarding health that I have learned over the years. And sometimes just snippets of life to give hope that yes, life can be normal after the hard work is done.

Sit back, enjoy, and be hopeful! RECOVERY HAPPENS!

Like-minded moms

Whew!  School is done for the year!  YAY!  Paperwork is filed, mailed and/or tossed out and it's done.  My son has a full-time job, my older girl has a part-time job and Kate and I spend a lot of time in the car getting kids from job to job.  It's not a thrill but she's pretty excited that I'm not making her bring school work with her.  hahaha

Since I lost my job last year, our very kind Sensei has let me start cleaning the dojo so I could work off their fee, instead of having to pull them from class.  This has worked out well.  Cleaning someone else's toilets is not on my "favorite things" list, but it's a small price to pay for them to continue karate.  With Tony now fully employed, Kate has been allowed to step into his spot.  She is SO excited!!  Her sweet friend has been such an encouragement to her, trying to help her learn new moves and smiling at her from across the room when it's hard.  Her sister has been very helpful too, but I somehow forgot to get a pic of them two of them.  Next time...

The kid's karate class is for homeschooled children.  Our dojo offers many classes throughout the day, but Sensei offers two classes in the morning specifically for children who are homeschooled.  It's very nice and a good way to meet fellow homeschoolers.  Yesterday, after cleaning, I went outside to talk to a mom I hadn't met before.  We had only talked for a moment when we both realized we have children recovered from autism.  You should have heard the squealing and laughing!!  Grace told me later that they could hear us all the way inside.  Oops, but also lol!  :)  This mom and I almost immediately started chatting about GI problems and how getting a handle on that had improved brain function.  Autism moms can talk poop, I tell ya!  It's what we do because we KNOW that gut problems cause brain problems.

I have met many parents trying to recover their children, especially at conferences.  Plenty of conversations online and over the phone.  But meeting one in my own hometown is way exciting!!  She has had the same experience we have...people can't believe her son used to be on the spectrum.  I have watched him in class for months.  You know, the kids don't just stand there like robots, they interact before and after class, they sometimes goof off during class; they're quite normal children, these homeschooled people.  ;)  I had no idea her son used to be on the spectrum.  And she had no clue mine were either.

It's nice to be on this side of things.  Recovery accomplished.   And now we're able to help others do the same thing.  What a privilege.
