Helping children on the spectrum to achieve their potential, so that they can improve their communication skills, quality of sleep, concentration ability and overall wellbeing.
I work with parents from all over the world and my message is simple:
Autism is treatable!
Once your child received the diagnosis of autism, you were probably told that there is very little you can do.
When my son was diagnosed with autism, we were simply told that autism is a life-long disability and we should consider ourselves lucky that, at four years old, he was at least potty trained…
Forget about ever having a conversation with your child, making friends, riding a bike or even taking your child for a haircut without drama!
I remember listening to one parent describe the reaction to the diagnosis almost like a “bereavement”: the life you had hoped for your child growing up, from academic achievements to family events, all the fun things you were looking forward to sharing with your child are suddenly taken away from you.
Instead, you are now in a constant state of anxiety and fight or flight mode: “Is my child going to be ok at school?” “How do I know what to do if he is ill or in pain and cannot tell me what’s wrong”? “How can I get my child to sleep through the night, so that I can have some rest too?”
Holidays and family visits are an ordeal, because you need to plan every single detail in advance, it can be so exhausting and overwhelming.
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY?
THIS IS WHAT THE MOTHER OF AN ELEVEN YEAR OLD BOY WROTE AFTER WORKING WITH ME:
Imagine you could “fix” only one of your child’s symptoms, say restricted diet.
One of my patients was only eating dry cereals, pasta and biscuits. Literally nothing else. Not only was his diet super-restricted but the cereals and biscuits had to be a certain brand or he wouldn’t even eat that. Something like a simple day trip, not to mention longer holidays, were an ordeal, as the mother had to remember to pack the right food along with the clothes!
A few weeks into my program, this child started to look at his parents’ plate at dinner and decided to try something new! He gradually expanded his range of food and his mother was able to introduce more healthy options and this ONE change cascaded into other areas, so that:
