This is a video i came across after visiting the Generation Rescue site this morning. It’s about a father who’s son stopped speaking after he turned 2 years old. He decided to take a trip across America to talk to several families about Autism. This is their story:
School Districts across the country are struggling to meet the needs of students with ASD. Budgets are tight making it is hard to think about being proactive when there are not enough dollars to even cover day-to-day operations. However, districts have found that developing quality education programs for students with autism can actually result in substantial savings. During this presentation Dr. Leaf will discuss factors that contribute to the development of classrooms that provide effective educational for students with ASD. Dr. Leaf will share what he has found to be indicators of a “good” school district, teacher and classroom.
Dr. Ronald Leaf is a licensed psychologist who has over thirty-five years of experience in the field of autism; he worked with Ivar Lovaas while receiving his undergraduate and doctorate degrees at UCLA. He is co-author of: A Work in Progress; Building Quality ABA Educational Programs for Students with ASD; Sense and Nonsense in the Behavioral Treatment of Autism and Crafting Connections. Dr. Leaf has consulted nationally and internationally with families and school districts; he is Director of Autism Partnership.

The media should be sharing this message instead: Work hard. Fight hard. Keep trying new therapies. Do not wait. Have hope.
“Growing out” of autism is an urban myth. Recovery from autism is possible.
