Seasonal Affective Disorder

Wondering if my ASD child is suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Would like to hear feedback form ASD parents who has experienced this with your child. Has anyone used "Light Therapy"? After talking with my sons OT today, we discussed this. My child has sleep issues and it was suggested that maybe his Circadian Rhythm might be off balance. Light therapy was recommended.

New Beginnings

What a great week we had, last week. I hired 3 new staff, or team Members as we call them, for Noah's in home VB Program. I'm so excited to get them out here and get them trained. One has prior ABA experience, so now we have to get her trained in VB and move her toward that protocol. It's all so exciting. The other two girls have such great enthusiasm and spirit. And their willingness to learn is astounding. It's hard to find that right fit for a program like this. I interviewed about 7 girls and started out just wanting to hire 2.

Starting EDTA

My 9 year old ASD son has been doing chelation with oral DMSA for a little over a year, Now he is going to be starting EDTA probably this weekend. I'd like some feedback from other parents who have done this. Basically I'd like to hear about changes you saw, good or bad, with your child. I have been wanting to try this for quite some time but we were waiting on lab results from Doctors Data and now we have those. He tested high with Arsenic and Cadium and that really bothers me. We've been doing DAN treatment for almost 2 years and I've seen great results from that.
