This blog is a way of sharing the information and resources that have helped me to recover my son Roo from an Autism Spectrum Disorder. What I have learned is to view our symptoms as the results of underlying biological cause, which can be identified and healed. I say "our symptoms" because I also have a neuro-immune disorder called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

And, of course, I am not a doctor (although I have been known to impersonate one while doing imaginative play with my son)- this is just our story and information that has been helpful or interesting to us. I hope it is helpful and interesting to you!

Because Sometimes Humor Gets the Point Acrosss Best...

I just came across this little rant from Bill Maher, in which he pretty much hits the nail on the head.  Sometimes satire is the most effective mode of journalism!

Here are my favorite quotes from this:

"We won't stop being sick until we stop making ourselves sick"
"The government isn't your nanny, they're your dealer, and they subsidize illness in America"
"There's no money in healthy people, and there's no money in dead people.  The money is in the middle.  People who are alive, sort of..."
"(drug company ads) like to say "when diet and exercise fail"....well, diet and exercise don't fail"
