If you’re seeing too-few improvements in your child’s
You could ask a health or therapeutic professional for help… but answers will be limited to a tiny fraction of what may -- or may not -- be useful for your child.
You could ask autism parent or autistic adult what helped in their situation… but every one of us needs different interventions, and they won’t know why.
To figure out what your child’s specific symptoms tell you about how to start pulling ahead most effectively…

Are You Ready for An Autism Turnaround?
First, take a look at The SMART Steps to Thrive With Autism on the Get Started page. Go through the resources on each of those links.
When you’ve got your questions organized, set up a date to chat by applying for a free, half-hour, Autism Turnaround Evaluation. We’ll:
- clarify your direction
- identify what’s blocking you
- strategize for the results you want
Sometimes I’ll suggest ways to work with me, sometimes I’ll suggest other people or resources for you to follow up on, often I’ll do both.
If you want to explore options for support from me, but just can’t see how to afford it, fill out the “Alternative Finance Options” application.

How Is This Different From Other Autism Support?
Our understanding of autism is currently under scrutiny; medical authorities heavily invested in the old model are not impressed. When Gallileo published a book disproving the church’s model of our solar system, he spent the rest of his life in house arrest because of the challenge to the church’s authority. Model changes aren’t easy!
There's an outdated map of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD): autism is an incurable neurological disorder; no one recovers any lost function, so if you did, you must have been misdiagnosed.
There's an emerging biomedical map of ASD: expensive, intensive detoxing, gut repair, and lifetime consumption of nutritional supplements will help a few autistics with rich families to lead a more mainstream life.
And then there's my map of the autistic spectrum:
every autistic can optimize function and quality of life by improving or healing the up-to-5 potential underlying health problems, through low-cost and often do-it-yourself actions.
Unlike the first two, my map of autism is based on actual, personal experiences of autism and functional recovery - mine and many others from children through seniors - paired with science which can make sense of these experiences.
There are as many paths for autistics to gain health as there are autistics, because each of us has a unique blend of challenges. I collect those paths to wellness, seek out the science behind why they help us, and find the patterns so I can share the short-cuts with you.
I thought it was fantastic, getting an insight into what people experience when they have Autism. Small changes can make a big difference overall when put into place, even just one or two a week -- and these are all things that anyone can do. I didn’t know there were so many options and strategies. It is very uplifting to hear about autistic strengths and how they can be successful in the workforce, how to bring out the best. This information is not mainstream, but could really help anyone.”
Are You and I a Good Fit?
I have autism, and am a straight-forward, caring, and dedicated supporter of parents, educators, professionals, and other spectrum adults. I guide people like you through simple and mostly DIY ways to build the best quality of life and degree of fulfillment possible for people with autism.
From a huge California study, we know that the only real difference between autistics who thrive, and those who stay stuck, is the degree of access to good information. To that, I would add the degree of open-mindedness. Extent of challenges and financial resources are a lot less important than you think.
If you see headaches as pain-pill deficits, we aren’t a good match. But if you see headaches as an opportunity to learn where they’re coming from, and how to decrease the severity, frequency, or even likelihood of future headaches, let’s talk.
I don't consider autism a Psychiatric Disorder.
Autism is a natural and adaptive result of high stress during brain development (from conception to age 25), which skews development towards introversion and problem-solving, and away from social and communication skill. Ask me for the science on this!
However, this adaptation is being pressed too hard by current societal levels of stress — including nutritional, toxicity, social, EMF, immunological, fitness, emotional, physiological, metabolic, and other fronts. Pressure from stress is exceeding adaptive capacity, pushing increasing numbers of children and adults into pathology and death.
Stress Hurts All of Us, But We Can Turn It Around
Autism-type challenges are only one way this stress is being expressed. Fertility is dropping rapidly (up to and including spontaneous abortions). Inflammatory diseases are rising rapidly (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, depression, dementia, to name only a few). And vulnerability to infection is far too high in populations which ought to be well-protected.
Autism is a bio-indicator that as a global population, we are moving outside the Goldilocks zone... That is, outside the range of "Just Right" for our health and well-being.
Moving back inside that Goldilocks zone, one factor at a time, is what allows us all to return to thriving.
If You Are:
- frustrated or overwhelmed by autism-related challenges
- seeing little-to-no improvements, or backsliding
- looking for steady gains in function and quality of life
...I can help.
My clients generally find me when they’ve tried other things, and aren’t seeing the progress they want. When they’re ready, I show them how to achieve autism turnarounds.
