We can talk about all the wonderful therapies and treatments for Autism but it won’t change that safety is still priority 1. Everytime I hear a story about a child, any child being lost my heart sinks. The truth is that for parents of typical kids that fear will lessen over time. I don’t know that it ever goes away but I’m told the fear decreases. The same is not always true for parents with kids on the spectrum. As children get older and larger sometimes the safety issues change. It is important to know that there are low cost solutions to some of our biggest concerns. Today on Everyday Autism Miracles we are going to be talking to Kay Green from MyPreciousKid.com. She is an expert in child safety products and will share knowledge and advise about how to keep our kids safe! Don’t miss it! To call in with questions call 877.864.4869

When a child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder a parent generally has more questions than answers. More often than not the medical people in the child’s life will have very few answers to offer. Even with all of the recent advances in the field Autism remains a bit of a mystery. Additionally, it seems that each child is differe
nt, which leaves a parent the job of becoming a detective. When Karyn Seroussi’s son was diagnosed with autism in the mid 90s, she took on the role of detective with passion. In 2000 her book, Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder: A Mother’s Story of Research and Recovery, which details the journey she took with her son. Over the past dec
ade Karyn’s book has helped thousands of parents in their roles as detectives to sort through their own children’s Autism.
Today, Karyn’s son is a normal healthy teenager. In her ongoing mission to help f
amilies on their Autism journey Karyn has co-authored a new book with her Autism Network for Dietary Intervention partner Lisa Lewis. The Encyclopedia of Dietary Interventions for the Treatment of Autism and Related Disorders is an absolute essential for any parent participating in dietary intervention, whether they are beginners starting out or hardened veterans. This book is a comprehensive compelation of thirteen years of work and research by two established experts in the field.

In 2008 Tiffani’s son was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, she found herself on a journey with her son that was worth documenting so she began a blog called Eamon’s Journey Thru Autism. What was initially intended as a chronicle for friends and family quickly became a popular blog for parents with children on the spectrum all over the world.
Last year Eamon’s diagnosis was reversed but Tiffani felt even more committed to providing information for families affected by Autism, thus Our Journey Thru Autism was born. Each week a panel of experts post blogs on a variety of subjects pertaining to Autism.
