I did most of what she did ages 2-6, yet my son has not recovered. He is now 9 years old..and of course, I'm still doing all she recommends and more.... but not with the same "miracle" results she got with Leo... What is frustrating is that I too (like every mother who gets the devastating autism diagnosis) love my son just as fiercely and I too did everytning possible for him, read every book, hired umpteen therapists (at great expense), and trained college kids (at far less expense). But rather than run ourselves into bankruptcy , we borrowed money against our house for his ABA. I would happily trade bankruptcy to achieve the results she did with Leo, but it wasn't an either/or. There are no guarantees, her book will give good advice and hope to mothers of the newly diagnosed, but she should NOT let them off the hook in pursuing diet and other biomedical interventions, although she devotes very little ink to those resources.
And yes, to the reviewer who mentioned siblings, siblings play SUCH an important role in helping to recruit playdates and engage the child with autism..but they too need special attention and my husband and I were careful to give her extra attention, including my husband coaching her sports teams. It is exhausting to try to give both your children what they need when you're all facing autism and the marriage suffers, but as she notes, who has the $$ or energy for marriage counseling?Read more ›
