Autism is treatable

Was reading this article today, which does give us a lot of hope for our son.

According to the results of The National Children's Health Survey in the US, it was found that "nearly 40% of households surveyed who had a child diagnosed with autism reported that their child did not currently have the condition".

However the bad news. The 2007 telephone survey of 78,000 households in the US reports that 1% of children (one in 100) now have the disorder. This is more than previous estimates.


What I would really like is a survey of those parents who say that their kids are now cured to find out what type of treatment they employed.

  1. That is the big question. What works for one child may not work for another, though. I think that has been one of the hardest things to deal with in raising my son. We tried so many treatments, that now we just work on teaching him the best we can.

  2. Hi Tammy, Thanks for dropping by our blog. That's our biggest worry because none of these treatments are cheap. They actually run to thousands of pounds and there is no guarantee that our son will get better.All we have are the testimonials form other parents.
