Why I am a Part of the AutismOne Community: 

To be supportive of those pursuing improved health and wellness through diet and nutrition strategies.

My Daily Motivations: 

Children and families.

Help Needed: 
Outreach and connectivity to those not yet following calculated food regimes for children with autism. Everyone can benefit, to varying degrees, by following a healing, nutrition focused diet. Diets for children should not be simply random, too many children continue to suffer with addressable maladies - diet changes begin a path to improved well being.
