Resources

I believe strongly if an intervention or treatment exists (without danger or damage) that would help my son talk more, improve eye contact, decrease his repetitive behaviors then I would try it! This strong opinion of mine is similar to the parents who try a clinical trial or new treatment for their child who suffers from cancer. If something could help a child would you not at least give it a try, research it or explore? To me, this means to approach autism without blinders on and utilizing any and all resources. If bio-medical treatment could alleviate some of the symptoms of a child’s autism would you try it? If intensive behavioral modification allows a child to talk would you not give it a try?
