She also mentioned how so many kids today, who don't have autism, have autistic traits and how widespread these symptoms are and how worrisome this is for future generations of kids. I think this is the most important thing I took away from this event.
This issue is not just about the kids who have autism.
In my opinion, all our kids are being poisoned by something in the environment--some are just more sensitive than others. The chemicals in processed food, pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables, the air we breath which is filled with mercury, our drinking water with traces of pharmaceutical medication in it all create a body burden which affects the neurology and development of our children. And, the lack of fresh real food often makes it hard for the children to detoxify from their environment.
But it is nice to know that CARD has helped some children to get better from autism using ABA. And this movie is an important piece of evidence that some kids are getting better--and growing up to tell about their struggle to recover.
