Hello Tina and Stacey!! I too have my son on a special diet, and we have seen HUGE changes in him, he went from being almost nonverbal to talking up a storm!! We still have LOTS of issues, but it has definitely helped! We are in the process of getting him into therapy which is kind of overwhelming, but I think it will help him alot!! Our biggest challenge right now is he has learned how to unlock the front door and thinks he can just go outside by himself, augh!!!! I just heard about the Mother Warriors book and will hopefully be picking it up from the bookstore in the next few days!!!

Hi just read the book "Mother Warriors" by Jenny McCarthy in one day. We have been following the same diets and therapies for 3 years and support every word in the book. Anyone else read it? I have three kids on the spectrum and have seen miraculous changes in them from the beginning of our journey through Autism!
Hi Catherine! Welcome to the world of mommy hood with autism!! My son is 10 and is nonverbal and still in diapers who also has senory integration dysfunction and many behavior problems. My son will not sit still unless he is eating! He was a wanderer and has been on our highway 2 times walking down the center line........many scary moments but many wonderful ones too! I look forward to talking with you more! Tina
