The Exponential Rate of Autism:1 thing you can do to help your child gain a better quality of life
If you haven’t taken the time to review the latest statistics on Autism, you really should pause to take a look. The CDC has released its latest statistics, which is shown below. As you can see Autism rates are definitely on the rise. This diagnosis affects so many families in many different ways. Some kids are severely affected while others are mildly affected by the symptoms of Autism. What are parents left to do after their kid has been diagnosed with Autism? Not much other than fill their schedules with a huge amount of therapy sessions.
As I think back to the days when my son was severely affected, I can’t help but want to help those families that are looking for more ways to gain a better life for their child. In my son’s severe days, he was self-injuring himself, not able to potty train, babbling instead of speaking, and so much more.
So what’s the 1 thing you can do as a parent to help your child gain a better quality of life…
The 1 thing you can do to help your kids gain a better quality of life is to NEVER GIVE UP on finding answers. I hear it time and time again, parents know their child was developing normally until the age of 2 when everything crashes down. They are lost for words and some parents will look for alternatives while others give up. If you are one of those parents that will never give up on helping your child then you will reap the benefits of having a better quality of life.
When you have the mindset of not giving up, you are open to alternatives and looking for solutions. I was one of those parents that made the decision as soon as I walked out of the child psychologist’s office that I was never giving up on my son. After being given this long list of therapy sessions for him to attend, I started searching for alternative answers that would help him have a better life. I found major success by shifting my focus to the foundation of nutrition. I noticed this was a game-changer for my son. Something as simple as removing dairy and gluten from his diet changed his life. This isn’t the only thing that worked for my son; however, I want to point this one out so that you can see focusing on nutrition can and will lead to a better quality of life for your Autistic child.
