Hi Lisa,
Thanks for your message on my wall. I'm still figuring out how this site works! :) We are stationed with RS Louisville so we're out here on our own. I spent last year fighting for EFMP and ECHO. We've had our son in ST/OT for a while and recently were able to add ABA through ECHO. We just obtained an official Autism diagnosis last week! We're relieved, overwhelmed and a whole lot of other emotions! Now we're just trying to figure out how to get back to an installation so we can receive some support services. Thanks for checking in, I can use all the help I can get these days! :)

Hey Lisa,

Hope all is going well with the family. I know you are busy and your days are full, however I would like to ask you if you know of anyone who would like to volunteer on the website? I am overwhelmed at times and it would be great to see other interaction with new members... Can you work your magic????? (: Rhonda

Fellow Team Members and Mentors,
Help, I’m Overwhelmed……

As Bette Midler once said, “People are not the best because they work hard, they work hard because they are the best.” And you are the best! You are an appreciated volunteer and everyone here at Autism One, would like to thank you for your exceptional service. I don’t know how we would manage without you; as Hilary Clinton has emphasized, it truly takes a village to raise a child, and our baby is this amazing “Social Network” and we need a group effort, I could sure use your assistance.
There are only a handful of volunteers that have been consistently blogging, greeting new members and adding comments to new member’s posts. I am aware that time is a precious commodity, there sometimes isn’t enough time in a day, but I would like to ask for a little of your time each week or even once a month. Every little bit helps. Having helpful advice/suggestions and tips can make an enormous difference in another individual’s life.
Your support would be greatly appreciated. There are days that I am truly overwhelmed. We are looking forward to seeing you at the May Conference in Chicago, you can find me at the registration desk, drop by and say hello(: Thank you so very much. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at:
Sincerely yours,
Rhonda Brunett, Autism One Chicago Liaison

Claudia Morris from the Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland (CHRCO) and Marilyn Agin from the Saint Vincent Medical Center in New York recruited families with experiences of omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin E supplementation. The majority of families used doses of 800 IU of vitamin E, while the average omega-3 consumption was 280 to 840 mg DHA and 695 to 2,085mg EPA.

The ratios and dosages determined through the work with the study led to a patent for Dr Morris through the CHRCO (US patent # 2008/002216). Kate Bolton, VP of speech nutrients at NourishLife, told NutraIngredients:
