Resources for ASD Parents
- Recovering Kids– Shortly after we no longer qualified for a diagnosis, I was introduced to this group of parents fighting to recover their children. Not only do they have a Facebook page, they also have this fantastic blog,
- TACA (Talk About Curing Autism Now)– TACA is an amazing non-profit dedicated in helping, supporting and empowering families affected by autism. It offers free autism parent mentors for autism families, and I am proud to be one of them. While they don’t have much information regarding glutamate, they have a substantial amount of information available via their website, podcast, conferences, coffee talks, journey guides and parent mentors.
- I would encourage you to take the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) as one of your very first steps, even if your child is not on the autism spectrum. This simple checklist is an easy way to track progress and may help gauge how much improvement you’re seeing from dietary changes. Click this link to access the survey and select “English” in the lower lefthand corner to begin. At the end of the survey, your score will be generated, the lower the number the better. It may be beneficial in having your spouse and or therapist preform the survey as well. You may also have the option to have results emailed to you for future reference. We personally try to complete the survey roughly once every three months to track progress. Along the same lines, we can easily be consumed by current issues are struggles.
