“Shannon,” my 24-year-old daughter, was unable to tell what others were thinking, because of her Asperger’s. The world was a confusing and unpredictable place to her. It’s the reason I homeschooled her from grades 8-12.
But now, after some vitamin therapy under the Yasko protocol and more than a year of NAET treatments, she CAN tell what others are thinking. She’s a responsive and caring individual. In my book, that means she’s not autistic anymore.
My first cousin had the opportunity to get to know Shannon this fall when Shannon went traveling. She hadn’t known Shannon previously. Here’s what my cousin said:
“I have to tell you I had such a good time getting to know ‘Shannon’ when she was out here … What a treasure she is! I was wondering about her autism; she really has emerged from it hasn’t she! How wonderful! Have you ever heard of that happening?”
Personally, I haven’t heard of recoveries like this for others her age, although there probably are some. There are many reported recoveries from more severe autism for kids who are much younger, like under the age of 5 or 10. All these recoveries come from the alternative medical treatment world.
