: Dear Ann,
I am based in Tehran,Iran.i have a sister in law who lives in NY and she is going to send me Dr. Megson's Parent Packet and if possible,Physician's
Packet.Unlike the U.S.,there's no special centers for autistic children here and there are a few Doctors who work in this field ;even those doctors do not have updated,new information and i myself prepared a print about Dr. Megson's research and gave it to one of them who seems to be interested in new issues.I am a mother and i spend several hours a day at my computer at home to find out a way to recover my children.The professionals here do not spend much time on research and sometime i get this impression (which is true)that my data is more updated than theirs!Imagine how i must feel in such a condition.Anyway i think i must first receive the packets and then... start a search for a proper doctor.You are lucky to be in the U.K. ,atleast you can place an order from the U.S. directly and travel there if necessary.I sometimes feel like a drowning man who can see the lights in land but can't get to it.It is sad to have two autistic children and even sadder to see there's such a great ignorance and lack of real professional help around you.Thank you for your attention.
