We got another diagnosis of Aspergers for Dallas back in January of this year when he was tested by the state (we were first told he had Aspergers in November of 2008 by the Neurologist and then told no it was PDD-NOS diagnosis from the NeuroPsycologist in January 2009) Of course they all agreed he defiantly had Sensory Processing Disorder. But now we have a definite diagnosis of Aspergers so I'm ready to take this bull by the horns!
I feel like I haven't really been able to put my hands around this disorder until now. With expecting the baby and then having Sydney I've been very focused on that. But now I'm ready to attack this neurological disorder head on and with all I've got! I'm reading the book "Eating for Autism" (Aspergers is high functioning Autism for those of you who know nothing about it.) It's a great book!! Talks a lot about nutrition and healing your body and getting the right vitamins and minerals as well. It goes very well with the movies Sean and I have been watching, "Food Inc," "Food Matters," and "King Corn." I HIGHLY recommend watching these movies. It will change your view of eating. Sean and I both would like to eat a more Raw Diet.
So my plan now is to heal all of us. I'm sure we are all deficient in some area. With me schooling Boston I notice more and more ADHD symptoms and as Asher gets older I'm not sure if he's coping Dallas or if he has some Sensory Issues of his own. Basically we all need a change in the way we eat and the way we think about food.
That's my mission.....
you are welcome to come along for the ride.....it's always bound to be very interesting when it involves my growing family!
