Mom: School put my autistic son in a bag -  News - MSN CA

Mom: School put my autistic son in a bag -  News - MSN CA:

'via Blog this'

This story is such a travesty! If I put my own child into a duffel bag I would be convicted of child abuse immediately. However since this is going on in a public school under the guise of therapy no one is protecting these kids. It is ultimately up to the parents to oversee their children's safety. If you have a child with special needs who can't tell you what happens to him while away at school, then you absolutely MUST make your presence a regular occurrence. You just have to do it. No job is more important, make the time.

The Drugging Of Our Children In Public Schools

I hate to interrupt the current articles here featuring Ayn, but this is rather newsworthy and near to my hear. I received a note from a mom on Facebook recently asking for information on a link between Prozac use and Autism, while doing research for her I ran across this website that I feel deserves some attention. IN addition they have some fantastic links near the bottom. So many kids hurt by the greed of the psychiatric industry! Not just kids the hurt just goes on and on. Ask me why I hate Ritalin, what it did to my family in 1999-2000 and the road it sent me down. It was the start of my journey for Bear, but I would rather not have the scars. Please STOP Drugging Our Kids!

Plea For Ayn Van Dyk

This is a poignant message and a plea for help from a young single father in desperate need. Read about him and his wonderful children. We have all been taught to believe that the government is there to do our will, the will of the people, more and more this is proving FALSE. 



Plea for Ayn

By Derek Hoare in Help Bring little Autistic girl back to her daddy ·http://www.facebook.com/groups/justiceforayn/

My name is Derek I am a single father of three wonderful young children, aged 9, 10 and 11; my youngest two have both been diagnosed with severe autism. Though a constant and challenging struggle, I have done my best to protect and nurture them, as I love them so much and have dedicated my life to their achievement of happiness. My youngest child is a bright and beautiful little spitfire named Ayn. She has and is blossoming so well here at home and has come so far to overcome her obvious disability, she does however continue to struggle and outburst when in other environments, particularly at school.

Ayn is naive and unaware of the dangers that exist in the world at large, so when on Sunday June 12th she escaped the backyard we were very worried for her safety. With each passing moment the likelihood that something terrible had happened increased, as Ayn should stand out from other children easily and should have been quickly spotted. Fortunately Ayn was discovered two doors down playing in a neighbours backyard, the neighbour had taken an afternoon nap which provided Ayn with the ability to play undisturbed. The challenges I have faced in caring for my daughter have been encompassing and life altering, these challenges are very dynamic and new challenges arise as fast as the old one depart. Now with her discovery of the neighbours nearby trampoline and pool, she will undoubtedly seek to return there, vigilance will be required to face this new found challenge, but it is one which I must now face just as I have with each prior challenge and as i would have to with our future challenges as well. As it stands today I may never get that opportunity.

On the morning of June 16th two workers from CPS arrived at my home to request that I "voluntarily" give Ayn over to them (she was at school at the time), if I refused they would simply coercively remove her. There should be no illusions here when someone approaches you and says "give me your child or i'm taking her" you should not pretend that any such choice would be done "voluntarily".

Within hours of her removal Ayn had hospitalized and drugged with powerful neuroleptics, one of which at double the maximum daily dose. Her whereabouts has been concealed from me, due to me refusing to sign the voluntary agreement. And I will not be given the opportunity to argue before an impartial court as per why this was a wrongful removal for months. After twelve days of hospitalization, in which the hospital noted "no bruises or evidence of physical abuse and her body status showed no evidence of neglect" , and "Initially there was some suspicion of ADHD along with autistic aggression, but this dissipated as Ayn improved...".

The hospital insisted on discharging her (june 28th), she is now in foster care awaiting further hospitalization as the Ministry has waitlisted Ayn for a longer term residential based psychiatric assessment. My little girl is autistic, she does not require a psychiatric assessment, I am aware that she does not understand the dangers that lurk, I love her and I protect her, when Ayn has a tantrum at school it is me they either call in to calm her or send her home to, when she is injured it is to me whom she turns because she "needs a bandage". The greatest successes this little girl has had were nurtured in the home, she loves it here, she loves her brothers and she loves her Dad, It is my firm belief that if our system of child protection has reached a point where a happy thriving child who was not abused and in no need of medicating, can be coercively removed from their family, forcibly medicated within hours, denied access to that family punitively, and the family is given no redress for months potentially years; then we are indeed facing a serious systemic problem. A problem which unfortunately is not confined to my city or province, nor even my country, for these acts are playing out around the world. Please help me get my little girl back and to address this issue in such a way that it never affects another family again.

I would be forever in your debt,
Derek (July28th, 2011)

The preceding was updated on the 28th of July, and with a meeting on the 29th at my home with a social worker from the MCFD, came many new developments. I hesitate to sound overly optimistic, but what a difference: a day, the public spotlight and an experts opinion can make. Though I still lack a firm commitment from the Ministry, they have informed me that Ayn's case has now been reviewed by their resident autism expert. This expert has advised them against placing Ayn in the psychiatric facility, why this expert was not introduced to this case earlier is unknown. In addition the Ministry has ironically informed me that all they would like to see is for Ayn to have proper supports in place, something which I have been advocating for years now. With these supports in place she can come home... reason to rejoice? Perhaps, but without a firm Ministerial commitment to this I cannot relent in my quest for her return. Nor will I relent in my advocacy for the reformation necessary to prevent these systemic failures from ever effecting another family as it has mine. And I ask the same of all those whom have chosen to support Ayn, myself. and all those families facing this threat in the future. Please join us in ensuring Ayn comes home promptly and a positive reformation of the very system which allowed and endorsed these unjust actions. (Aug 1)

Conclusive link now admitted: swine flu vaccine causes chronic nervous system disorders

"Remarkably, even though the link between swine flu vaccines and permanent neurological damage in children is now openly admitted by the Finnish government, there is absolutely no talk about halting the utterly unscientific ritual of injecting children with flu vaccines in the first place."

Recently I have become aware of the Son-Rise Program(c) from Autism Treatment Centers of America and The Options Institute. Today is a new day for those on the spectrum because rather than the doom and glom of the diagnosis as was in the past, little by little there are more who are finding a glimmer of hope and amazingly some who have actually won! I must share this inspirational story of one family who is just beginning to recover their twin boys from Autism.

Exclusive: NaturalNews obtains documents proving FDA abducted an American citizen in illegal war against herbal cancer cures (updated)

While not specifically related to Autism, the FDA is a major part of the problem- if the FDA were fulfilling its role in protecting us instead of serving the interests of Big Pharma how different might our children be? I am convinced that Autism would not exist!

A Plea for Ayn

This is a very well-written "plea" written by Derek Hoare, the father of Ayn Van Dyk. Ayn, was recently legally kidnapped by the CPS organization in her home town; Abbotsford BC, Canada. This story hits close to home for those of us involved in the Autism world, parents and caregivers of children and loved ones on the Autism spectrum because the only reason given by CPS (child protective services) for Ayn's removal from a SAFE and loving home is that she is exhibiting Autistic behaviors and they claim to be helping Derek by "lightening his load". I am posting this letter in its entirety with express permission from Derek Hoare.

My name is Derek I am a single father of three wonderful young children, aged 9, 10 and 11; my youngest two have both been diagnosed with severe autism.

Bearshirt Redesigned!! No 911 reference... (Update on AYN)

I have to say to everyone, I am very sorry! I don't know what I was thinking when I designed the former BearShirts directing first-responders to CALL 911. I have redesigned the BearShirt to leave out that very dumb idea to call 911. Everybody knows how to dial 911, if they need to. But the police state that we live in is a very dangerous place for a non-verbal child (or adult!). Please, please, NEVER dial 911 for a domestic special needs situation! NEVER!! I am also redesigning the wallet cards too. I have about 500 right now that say "call 911" and they are going in the trash. So if you order a new t-shirt today there will be a slight delay in receiving your free wallet card, don't worry you will get it, just give me time to have them printed please!! Love to you all and BTW

Don't forget to follow the situation with Ayn Van Dyk, the little 9 year old Autistic girl, legally kidnapped by CPS following a wandering incident. We all know how these innocent kids can be victimized by the government. They are (confirmed by court documents) OVER medicating her as we speak. She has been in CPS custody for over a month now with no contact with her loving daddy Derek, or her mommy Amie, and her parents are working around the clock to raise awareness and get Ayn back home safely. Please take a moment to look at her story, join the Facebook group, sign the petition, donate to her legal fund, Join the Twitter team and tweet for awareness with me @AynLoves

Help Bring little Autistic girl back to her daddy

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_152278868178942

This is the sincere request of Derek Hoare begging for your help to return his daughter Ayn back home.
My name is Derek I am a single father of three wonderful young children, aged 9, 10 and 11; my youngest two have both been diagnosed with severe autism. Though a constant and challenging struggle, I have done my best to protect and nurture them, as I love them so much and have dedicated my life to their achievement of happiness.

There should be no illusions here when someone approaches you and says "give me your child or i'm taking her" you should not pretend that any such choice would be done "voluntarily". They do not argue that she was abused, they do not argue that she was unnurtured, they simply say that as a single father I have an overwhelming amount of responsibilty and workload, and that Ayn's naivity renders her a danger to herself, and due to me having so much to deal with they should remove her in effect to lighten my workload. It is not argued that Ayn was thriving here, it was not argued that Ayn was failing to improve at home, but that her behaviour was self endangering. My little girl is autistic, I am aware that she does not understand the dangers that lurk, I love her and I protect her, when Ayn has a tantrum at school it is me they either call in to calm her or send her home to, when she is injured it is to me whom she turns because she "needs a bandage". The greatest successes this little girl has had were nurtured in the home, she loves it here, she loves her brothers and she loves her Dad, please help me get my little girl back.

83 Cases of Autism Associated with Childhood Vaccine Just “Tip of the Iceberg” | Health Impact News

20 year cover-up exposed!

83 Cases of Autism Associated with Childhood Vaccine Just “Tip of the Iceberg” | Health Impact News

Really just need to rant a bit...

I am trying to collect my memories, I have trouble remembering sometimes and I want a record of our journey so I am writing it down here a bit. This isn't the whole story, it meanders around gets really crazy in places... but its a start.

My son is 14- diagnosed about 4 years ago. I don't honestly remember if his symptoms followed a vaccination event, he is my 4th child of five. I do remember the day he started banging his head, it seemed like he was doing it to get a laugh at first, he was irritated about spending too much time in the playpen because we were moving, he needed to be there to be safe while we moved furniture, etc. But it got worse and worse. When he was 9 months old on schedule like with my older girls I tried to get him to take a sippy cup and found the most wildly impossible task ever, he would have a bottle or die of starvation while screaming the house down as far as I could tell. I was flabbergasted, and astounded and at first I thought it was just that he was a boy maybe. I kept asking my ped about the head banging (Isn't this autism?) and she convinced me that since he knew he was banging his head it meant he was just doing it on purpose for attention. Even when it got so bad that from the age of 2 to 4 he lived in a bicycle helmet for safety because he would beat his forehead till he had huge blue goose eggs on his head and still wouldn't stop. We had to wait till he fell asleep to take it off, if we accidentally woke him up he would immediately bang his head. We had to wake up before him to put it on, if we missed it and he got up early or woke up at night he would bang his head.  When he started talking he was a little late but I never believed in pigeon-holing my kids to someone else's schedule- but he had his own language. How cute (right?) Most all his words started with BL (like Blue's Clues his favorite show) he drank bloo (juice) liked to visit bloomblaw (gramma) loved his oldest sister blouway (DeSere) and he couldn't say his next sisters name Jocelynn at all; so both she and the next sister Alex were... Alex. And his baby sister Moxi (Maxi) We thought it was funny, kid stuff, it was random didn't always have to follow the rule. However, he had a serious dark side, unexplainable tantrums screaming fits that lasted for ever, most plates of food offered to him went on the floor immediately, even when you gave him exactly what he wanted on the right color plate at precisely the moment he wanted it, he kept us all hostage. Maxine was the first one to realize he needed help I think, she was 13 months younger and she took care of him. Thats what kids in big families do they take care of each other.
When he was 2 I had started trying to figure out the riddle of his fathers frequent fits of rage, and drinking and apparent diagnosis of adult ADHD didn't help matters even they put him on Ritalin. After his psychotic break on Ritalin I started researching ADHD and found some doctors online who said it wasn't really a disease at all but symptoms of food allergies and I started cleaning out the cabinets, no dyes, no preservatives, food logs, discovered he and the kids all reacted heavily to Red dye #40 others as well but red dye seemed the worst culprit. I didn't notice that my son started to slowly improve then- I was focused on everything else, after all the doc said it wasn't autism.  As he got older he still wasn't right, not like boys his age, full of anxiety and phobias, loud noises preferred- to be alone. I have always pushed him beyond his  comfort zone forced him to deal with the world on its own terms. He stretches for more when I ask him to and he is usually happy he did. When he was diagnosed at ten I read a book by a local woman here in Arkansas called "Autism is not a life sentence" which seemed to tell me that I was blundering blindly in the right direction, if he had been diagnosed back when he was in the helmet, for instance and I had let the school system have their way with him, where might he be? I think his improvements are linked to our dysfunctional environment, the fact that nobody could zero in on his symptoms and forced him to deal with us, instead of forcing us to deal with him.
Where we live in Malvern there is no one who "gets" autism locally, in the school, the doctors office, nobody to lean on or go to for inspiration, no resources. I took him out of public school in the 4th grade because they thought the best way to deal with his frequent meltdowns (non-violent meltdowns btw where the chief mechanism was to shut down and refuse to respond, become non-verbal) was to call the cop from the middle school to come and scare him into submission. His teacher often told me that he just needed a spanking. I didn't find out about the cop for over a week, and I was at the school from 1:00 until 3:15 when school let out everyday because without my presence in the classroom he could not get anything out of it. He sat there lost in a haze of over-stimulation having no idea what was going on around him. And he had a string of paras who sat with him in the mornings too. No good, didn't help. But the cop thing was the last straw for me. As a single mom I have had to put him in school a couple times for different reasons always with similar results.
IN November last year we finally perfected the GFCF diet, we had been trying to do it for most of the year, but when I finally crossed the line and realized that we all had to change the way we think about food, it was finally successful and the result was almost immediate- he said "Mom I feel like I walked out of a fog" this difference in him is amazing. Still have the occasional meltdown etc etc. but the difference, wow. I am still worried that at his age he isn't where he should be, will he ever live independently? I don't see it at this point, I want to improve more I want to try chelation. I have read that if you don't do it within a few weeks of the exposure then their is no point, it won't help, that may be true as far as eliminating all traces of the damage, but I can't see that removing a toxin is pointless so I want to try it.
I am concerned   about using more chemicals to do it. this AC protocol or DMSA so many complicated procedures I don't know if it sounds necessary. I have been reading about a natural chelation procedure using cilantro and of course vitamin and mineral therapy along with Epsom salt baths and its cheap, natural, seems less intense. Doesn't require rounds, just start and keep going. I wonder how to get tests for baselines and then I wonder if its really necessary, I've never had baselines before. I know leads to me not being as credible with the docs, but then thats not why I'm doing this, I don't really care if I can prove to some doctor this is real and is working, I just care whether or not my son will ever learn to ride a bicycle or (dare I hope??) drive a car.
Yeah your right I don't have money to waste, cilantro is cheap, I can buy it with my food stamps. Its food, food is not something you have to regulate our creator gave us wonderfully designed bodies with an amazing system of toxin removal and immune system, if we just get healthy stay healthy how can we go wrong? I have been learning through just random reading and researching and I come to conclusions based on my gut instincts, experience and my faith in Jehovah God. There are some who have said its wrong thinking to assume we are broken and need fixing, which is how we all got in this toxic mess in the first place with drugs and vaccines chemical sweeteners and chlorine bleach spewing from our dishwashers, radiation pouring out of the microwave and tv, cell phones. I wish I could retreat to a desert island, eat the produce of the land and live in peace with my kids *sigh. Pipedream.
Anyway thanks for listening to me rant, sometimes I gotta do it, we all do. lol
Love,
Tori

I found a post on my Mercury/Autism Yahoo groups page about Andy Cutler http://www.noamalgam.com and http://home.earthlink.net/~moriam/ANDY_INDEX.html

Wow those websites are really hard to read... just like an endless list of facts
and links.

I am at the point in my struggle with my son on the spectrum that I want to move
forward and I feel totally overwhelmed. I finally after waiting a year have my
son an appointment this month with the Arkansas Childrens's Hospital Autism
Clinic, looking forward to it with a mixture of hope and dread, I read that the
doc my son is seeing is a DAN doc which I thought was good until I was informed
that because he works for ACH his hands are tied and he won't be actually
practicing DAN then I find a post from a mom being fleeced by a DAN doc with no results who reccomends something called AC -- and makes me even more nervous. I have been
reading today about cilantro chelation.

I am a single-mom disabled myself, at the mercy of these B******s and Medicaid,
I can't pay $800 out of pocket to see a specialist, I can't even pay a $75
deposit and travel to some other city to see a visiting naturepath in a hotel
and (how safe does that sound anyway??) not sure which way to go, but I keep
thinking my instincts tell me that in the absence of money and professional
intervention (!) that 1 -stop the poisoning, 2 -get as healthy as possible , 3
-remove whats left anyway you can but without adding more toxins sounds SANE.

However, the real news was never reported: more than 2,000 babies died in the United States after receiving vaccines for these very same diseases, yet authorities refuse to warn parents and halt production. A safety review is vital to determine whether a recall of the dangerous shots may be necessary to protect additional American babies from disability and death."

Grey Bearshirt



I decided to re-design the Bearshirt, make it a little more generic, instead of plastering my name and phone number across my sons back and front, maybe you can appreciate that. Now it reads to "Call my parents or Dial 911" and directs to the wallet card for more information.  Please post a comment, some feedback to let me know which you like? You can still order the shirt with any wording you personally want, I just thought this new wording might make everyone feel a bit safer. In addition I made the font larger and darker to read across the hand just like the wallet card. I think its a bit more visible. With every T-Shirt order you get a free wallet card. It's perfect for laminating at home same size as a business card, will fit nicely into the ID section of a wallet or in the ID holder of a backpack or notebook. The introductory price still stands!

Manifestation Destiny: The School to Prison Pipeline by Attorney Isabel Raskin

www.law.suffolk.edu/academic/clinical/jjc/documents/manifestationdestiny.pdf



Please note:You can file a complaint against a school for filing false charges-if your child is arrested, but the local prosecuting attorney has to file the charges.
Make sure you tell the officer, judge, etc, your child is a child with a disability.

This article is from 2002 but this is still happening to children with disabilities all over the Unite States in many public schools. This is a way for school districts to move our kids out of the public school system.
Manifestation Destiny: The School to Prison Pipeline
by Attorney Isabel Raskin
Studies have repeatedly shown that children with disabilities, whose needs are unmet or inappropriately addressed by schools, are at risk of falling further behind their peers in class, becoming frustrated, and acting out in inappropriate but entirely foreseeable ways. Current special education law recognizes that schools that do not provide required services for special needs children, cannot expel these students from school for misbehaving, as that would constitute unlawful discrimination against a child for manifesting disability related behaviors. Under this same law, however, schools can arrest these same students, regardless of whether or not their behaviors are a manifestation of the studentÂ’s disability. The capacity of schools to use the juvenile justice system to bring charges against students whom they cannot otherwise expel, subverts the purpose of special education laws by allowing schools to avoid accountability for their failure to provide mandated services, and pushes children with disabilities into a criminal justice system that puts their entire future in jeopardy.
In Massachusetts students can be permanently expelled from school for a variety of misbehaviors. 1 While these laws apply to all children in Massachusetts, under the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2 , students with disabilities are entitled to certain additional protections prior to being expelled from school. These additional protections reflect the history and purpose behind the IDEA, to end the appalling discrimination that many special needs children historically experienced, including being barred from attending school, being warehoused with minimal services, and being unilaterally excluded from school for behaviors arising out of their disabilities.
Under the IDEA, prior to special needs students being excluded from school for a disciplinary infraction, a school must hold a TEAM meeting 3 to determine whether the child’s behavior is a manifestation of the child’s disability. Known as a “Manifestation Determination Meeting”, the focus of the meeting is to determine whether the behavior is a result of the child’s handicapping condition. If the TEAM concludes that the behavior is a manifestation of the child’s disability, then the student cannot be expelled for the behavior and the school is required to provide appropriate assessments, supports andservices to the child.
When considering whether behavior is a manifestation of the studentÂ’s disability for purposes of expulsion, the determination requires a consideration not only of the studentÂ’s ability to conform his behaviors, but just as importantly, a review of whether

3 A “TEAM” is composed of a child’s parent/s, at least one of the child’s general education teachers, at
least of the childÂ’s special education teachers, a school representative who is knowledgeable about the
general curriculum, and school system resources, and is qualified to provide or supervise specially designed
instruction to meet the needs of children with disabilities, an individual who is qualified to interpret
evaluation results, other individuals who have knowledge or expertise about the child and when
appropriate, the child. 34 C.F.R. sec. 300.344; 20 U.S.C. sec. 1415 (k)(4)(B).

the school developed an appropriate Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and whether the school has implemented all the services within the IEP to which they agreed. 4 Implicit in this aspect of the review is the recognition that studentsÂ’ behaviors would not occur if these students had received the educational services that schools are mandated to provide. Schools that have not met their obligation to educate special needs students as required are precluded from expelling these same students for the schoolsÂ’ own failures. These protections are particularly crucial to protecting the rights of disabled students in light ofa 1999 U.S. Department of Education report finding that since 1991, Massachusetts has not been in compliance with certain IDEA requirements resulting in both delays and nondelivery of services to children with disabilities. 5
While schools must consider their own compliance with special education laws when determining whether a child’s misbehavior is a manifestation of the child’s disability for expulsion purposes, unfortunately, no such manifestation review is required before a school can have a student arrested for these same behaviors and charged in juvenile courts. A new section added to the IDEA in 1997 permits schools to arrest students for “crimes” committed by a child with a disability. 6 While presumably this section was meant to be used for truly criminal acts or to safeguard schools in emergency situations, the reality is that many schools are arresting special needs students for minor school infractions such as talking back to teachers and refusing to leave classrooms. A recent New York Times front page article reported that school based arrests for minor offenses are clogging court dockets and acknowledged that many of these school based arrests involve special education students whose behavior is often related to their disabilities. 7
In Massachusetts, both the administrative Special Education Appeals Bureau (BSEA) which reviews special education matters and the juvenile courts have ruled that they donÂ’t have the jurisdiction over or the authority to dismiss these cases. This has created anomalous situations such as: A special needs student acts out in school by refusing to leave a classroom, yelling and cursing at a teacher. A school based police officer arrests the student and the student is charged in juvenile court with disorderly conduct and disturbing a school assembly. In addition to the criminal proceeding, the school moves to expel the student for the behavior. The TEAM convenes, determines that the studentÂ’s IEP has not been properly implemented the school has not provided necessary services to which it agreed in the IEP. The studentÂ’s behavior is deemed to be a manifestation of the studentÂ’s disability by the TEAM and the student cannot be expelled from school. The juvenile court however, cannot dismiss the case, and the BSEA does not have the legal

4 The IDEA sets forth extensive procedures for schools to follow in identifying and determining the special education and related services to which eligible students are entitled. This includes detailed procedures for developing Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The Supreme Court has ruled that school compliance with these procedures is an essential part of providing a free appropriate public education for special needs students.

authority to see that the case is dismissed. The student is adjudicated delinquent and committed to the Department of Youth Services (DYS). The student is locked up and cannot return to school.
In a final ironic blow, the commitment of special needs children to the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services almost guarantees that they will continue to be denied the very services which could make the greatest difference in their lives and to which they are entitled under the law. In a March 2002 report issued by DYS on education services, DYS admitted that while more than 40% of committed youth had received special education services at some time prior to commitment, DYS has no effective communication with local school districts and little capacity to monitor the delivery of special education services. 8
The inability of courts and administrative agencies to dismiss criminal charges brought by schools against disabled children whose needs the school has failed to adequately serve in violation of special education laws and regulations, rewards schools for ignoring or purposely disregarding childrenÂ’s needs and their mandate to meet those needs. Schools need to be held accountable and should not be allowed to use juvenile courts to unilaterally exclude and punish children for precisely those foreseeable behaviors caused by their own failures. Inviting courts to step in effectively provides an incentive to schools to abrogate their responsibility, criminalize disabled children, and continues to insure that disabled children will be denied the services they require to have a successful future.

The BearShirt(c) is Born!

This is for my 4th child and only son. His name is Sidney, but even before he was born we called him Bear, Bear-Bear, or Little Bear, I just call him Bear. He is my inspiration, he is 13 now but soon he'll be 14! Where does the time go? We have been through a lot. When he was little I was positive he had Autism but I couldn't get his pediatrician to listen. And thru trial and error I have corrected many of his symptoms with diet even before he was finally diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at the age of 10.  Now that he is a teenager I am scared for him all over again! lol Parenthood...

But that's not why I am writing this post. While reading some posts on one of the online Autism support groups of which I am a member, I came across a post that inspired me. I have long wanted some way to help my son in case he started having a melt-down somewhere when I wasn't there with him. While he seems very normal if not just a little odd or quirky to most people when he goes into his turtle mode he is entirely non-verbal. 



Then after his latest growth spurt, he looks like he's grown too! The last melt down he had in public scared me to death, it was in November 2010 and we were in a Wal-Mart shopping, he sat down right in the middle of the ladies underwear department and covered his ears and put his head in his lap. What scared me was the idea that if he were with someone else or alone, maybe he had walked off to go the bathroom by himself,  (he's way too big for the ladies room now) and something happens how will other people view him? I spent 20 minutes trying to peel him off the floor that day. If I wasn't there I can only imagine, because if some large security guard came and tried to make him get up, he might even become violent, then what?

So I came up with this idea, it’s not new just my own variation. Since I can make them easily I can provide them to other folks that need them too. I will donate 10% of the profits from the sales of the t-shirts to Autism projects so your money is going to two good causes, yours and the cause of Autism and Asperger's Education.



Here is what I came up with so far, a T-Shirt, a Hat, a Wallet Card, a Backpack Tag/Necklace Tag, and various decals that can be placed on  binders, lunch-boxes, or any other thing your child or loved one may have an affinity to carry around. I am also working on a window decal that can be placed on the entrances to your home and windows to alert 1st responders in an emergency, as to the location of the person of special needs; as well as a yard sign.

In the next few days I will be posting pictures. The new url at http://www.bearshirts.org to market these products is already in production and will be live soon.

I'd love some feedback from any and all! Thanks for reading, and have a great day...

Please Don't Feed the Bears!

When I try to explain to people about me and my kids sensitivities to some foods they usually scoff. Remember all those times your kids (or you too) acted like monsters and you just chalked it up to "being a kid" what if it were really something else? I have been able to identify some triggers to the times my kids act like monsters and the triggers are wheat, artificial dyes, artificial preservatives etc. The more research I do the more I find out. I'm not a know-it-all I just try to pay attention... lol
So we, in my family, are all paying attention to what we eat and the more we learn the less mainstream our diet becomes. Sometimes we are weak and want to indulge in something we used to enjoy and now we can always see it has disastrous consequences.
I read an explanation for this weird phenomena. The theory was that just like a drug addict you become addicted to foods that are causing you harm. The longer you indulge the lower the effects and therefore the more you crave them to keep the effects you are addicted to coming. When you discover a food sensitivity like this and stop consuming that food, hopefully breaking that addiction in the process, your body normalizes again and then subsequently if you reintroduce that food into the system that tolerance you had previously built up to that food is now gone so its like a huge shot of a powerful drug! In fact the last time my daughter had a huger meltdown after eating wheat cereal with cows milk at a friends house and I tried to explain what was happening to the kind people who came to try to talk her out of the garage; they scoffed. They said "eating some wheat won't make a person act crazy like this, she looks like she's on drugs!" 
EXACTLY...
 So for me, it has led to a total transformation in my eating habits. Kids are less easy to convince, probably due to a short attention span, that the fit of uncontrollable rage she flew into when her brother innocently poked her to get her attention may have been the result of the wheat cereal she ate a few hours ago. Just as many women, who have difficulties with fluctuating hormones don't want to see that the fact that your husband innocently asked you if it's "that time of the month" is because he can see that when you fly into a tirade over little things there is an inherent pattern to this behavior; because he is on the outside looking in. 
So its sorta like that. I can see it, just like that husband can see it. It doesn't really matter to me if science has or has not decided to come out with some mind blowing statistical evidence to support my theory or refute it. I can see it! 
If you come into contact with me and my kids, please don't be offended or shocked if we turn down your kind and generous offers of candy, snacks, or other food.  And please don't try to sneak some in when mom's not looking thinking "oh a little candy never hurt anybody". If you do, I may call you for one of the crazy nights and let you come see for yourself, lol! But seriously folks: Please, Don't Feed the Bears!
