: :My little girl is now 3 and 1/2 years old , she never lost language, but still
can't speak sentences-mainly phrases and lots of words. We have great hope. She will
not eat any solid food. It stopped shortly after she received the MMR. We give her
a milk substitute called Moo Not with some goat milk, protein powder(whey or vegetable)
she is on the super nu thera without the vitamin A and D., DMG , Buffered Vit C,
enteroguard for the leaky gut and a liquid called Total Essential Fatty Acids and that
has been great. She has improved eye contact, even a sparkle in her eye, she hugs us,
will try to play with us and does some pretend play, says some of the alphabet,
can count to 15 and knows some colors. She knows so much more but can't get
it out. We have been considering the Krieger Institute to assist with the feeding
problem. I also must put organic baby brown rice cereal and Gerber oatmeal with
bananas in her bottles and cups. I wanted to eliminate the oatmeal but am not sure
what to substitute it with. We are also preparing for Vit A therapy with CLO.
Our son was almost 36 months before I began a attempt at ABA program at home. He was totally non verbal among other autistic traits. Between 3 and 4 he showed such improvement with our at home program that our school district agreed to place him in the ABC school featured in Newsweek. He is now nine and is speaking up a storm however we still deal with other issues. He is enrolled in regular ed. with an aid and our biggest joy is that he can actually tell us how he feels and what he wants and what he did. Do not ever think for a moment that it is too late, our son now plays with his siblings, can go anyplace with us, understands almost everything and relates at school. I also use vitamins, like Super Nu Thera (from Kirkmans) and cod liver oil. I never stop looking for good ideas. Also I think the allergy testing is helpful. After taking our son off of dairy we have seen even more improvement. Have you heard anything about Secretin and what do you think??
: Your news is so uplifting!! I will be starting my son on Super Nu Thera as soon as I get it. I have not heard promising things about secretin, but like you I am open to good ideas. Since our son is nonverbal now, we are going to start with DMG and go on to SNT. Since Lael has a several feeding problem he is on pediasure for almost all of his calories, it is gluten free, but not casein free. I don't think he has a casein allergy tho. Thanks again for sharing your accomplishment!!
