Well, well, well…. it’s about time!

The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement today that they have recently reached out to Defeat Autism Now! so that they can better understand treatments and interventions that we have found beneficial to our children.  I sincerely hope that this is the beginning to the AAP actually addressing this growing epidemic and not a deceitful tactic to discredit what so many parents, like myself, have gone through to recover our children.  With past statements from the AAP and the CDC, I honestly cannot fully trust their intentions at this point, but I am open and hopeful that we are moving in the right direction. http://aap.org/advocacy/releases/apr08autismday.htm

For any pediatricians who have come across my blog, I welcome you to contact me at anytime regarding anything you have seen written here.  I am more than happy to share research, experiences, answer questions, anything – if it will help you to form your own hypothesis and treat children instead of turning them away with a diagnosis and no where to go.  E-mail me at mom(at)recoveringnicholas.com, anytime.

“Most recently, the AAP met with representatives of Defeat Autism Now! (a program of the Autism Research Institute) in an effort to facilitate communication between pediatricians, parents and researchers about the diagnosis and treatment of children with autism. All advocates for these children agree that further research is needed regarding causes as well as safe and effective treatment.”

As far as I’m concerned this is a first step towards healing children and I’m looking forward to what the AAP is going to do next.   Hopefully it will include a review and overhaul of our current vaccination schedule.
