As a parents of a child with Autism, we know that you have a million questions and a lot of uncertainty. I know our world was rocked when we first got the word about our child.
We went to a number of different "doctors" who all told us the same thing. "This is what you are stuck with and you are going to have to learn to deal with it." This isn't something that you'd think that a doctor would tell you. We were looking for a LITTLE bit of hope.
Thankfully, we didn't listen to the "doctors" and we started looking for other ways to fight back against Autism. We did our own research and found doctors and programs who were willing to help and not give up, just because the medical books told them to.
My wife and I were also getting worn out and stressed out from all of the doctor visits, many therapy sessions, melt downs and just daily life. The stress of it all was beginning to take a toll on our health & family.
This is why Living Beyond Autism was created. We wanted to give families different ideas and some hope in their fight against Autism. This fight is definitely not a sprint. As a marathon, a lot of support and motivation are needed to keep pushing ahead to find what works best for each family.
Please keep in mind, we are not doctors. For any medically related questions/concerns, please contact your physician.
Feel free to reach out to us with any non-medical questions.
