On April 30, 2010, 1:48 pm

Medical practitioners perceive autism as a behavioral disorder and often overlook how sick the children really are. They need your help to understand that a child's autistic symptoms result from physical conditions that need medical treatment. Learn how to help your physician understand the metabolic problems in your child so he/she can become an effective member of your team. The goals of this session will include reviews of current lab tests and correlations between the behaviors demonstrated by autistic children and the underlying pathology.

At 16 she began working in group homes as a counselor, which included living there part-time, teaching activities of daily living, and advocating in situations involving discrimination.
