Well, you know, everybody seems to understnad the expected signs of autism. Again, the child who’s not doing well with social interactions; the child is not able to communicate or understand language; the child who may have excessive repetitive motions and movements. But the unexpected signs of autism, the things that we actually can help with are children who have problems with sleep and they’re up all night screaming, or they go to sleep, and then they wake up at 2 and then they’re up for the rest of the night; or children who have chronic diarrhea or chronic constipation or always have ear infections or sinus infections; they have immune system problems – they have problems with allergies and allergies to food and the environment. These are things that the medical community can really take hold of and improve that child’s life. And when they do that, the parents actually can really enjoy being with their child. They might still have autism, but they’re really fun to be with.
