"Recovery is Real: Effective Methods to Recover from Autism"

Recovering a child from a severe chronic illness is neither a myth nor a rare occurrence. Every day in this country children are regaining their health and wellness thanks to the intense love and commitment of their parents and caregivers, often in partnership with courageous, dedicated, and cutting edge clinicians. The journey to recovery is challenging, expensive, and emotional. Now imagine guiding your child to recovery while managing the stress of having a newborn while your husband deploys to Afghanistan. Maria shares her family's journey, and some amazing methods you can try at home to see results and change. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • What "new science" is and how it's trumping traditional science
  • Why so many kids are diagnosed with autism today
  • How to get the resources you need and to heal
  • How to pay for the healing process
  • How to make your individual plan and what to expect
