YOUR view of Autism Therapies

You will probably have been exposed to a wide variety of ideas and had many therapy-types offered to you. Some good, some not so good… I would be pleased to receive your thoughts, especially regarding any ideas and therapies that other Parent Power Members might benefit from.

1. This Site’s “Real World Training” Therapies

The sequence that the Parent-Power Real World Training uses for mild-autism treatment is (1) Identify what kinds of stresses your Loved One is labouring under, then reduce them as much as you can; for example: many children who are overwhelmed would appreciate knowing there is a quiet retreat room available for them, preferably with you…

My opinion: 
I’d like to throw in my thoughts to stimulate discussion. Many of you will find my point-of-view to be provocative and controversial: my observations, supported by our specialist allergy doctor with 40 years of experience, lead me to propose that a good deal of allergic sensitivity originates from a generally more nervous condition. If that is the case, then…
