Embracing the spectrum
I want to start by saying that I do not believe there’s a “cure” for autism. Without variability in this world, we would certainly have boring lives, and autistic children are just as valuable and beautiful as any other children. As a parent, I want the best for my children, though, and that means I want them to feel the best they can feel. Plenty of studies out there have pointed to a variety of health conditions that come along with autism. Children with autism generally have a difficult time sleeping, have digestion problems, and, many times, get more ear infections than other children. I received a copy of Dr. Janet Lintala’s book, The Un-Prescription for Autism, in exchange for my fair review of her book. Dr. Lintala founded and heads Autism Health, which serves children and adults in 12 states and as a fellow autism parent, she provides practical advice for parents to follow in order to help regulate the underlying issues that come with autism. I want to share some noninvasive ways to help treat autistic children without medication and help them feel more comfortable so that they can achieve the best possible health outcomes.
