Zi 自閉症-- Joseph

The following is from the summer 2003 edition of "Autism Now" , a publication of the Edmonton (Alberta Canada) Autism Society.
 
"The Little Boy that Could" or "Joseph's Miracle"
 
Joseph Williams is 11 and has PDD-mild autism, (with autism being the worst form of Pervasive Developmental Disorder). Joseph lives in Barrhead Ab. with his family. He is a recent winner of the Barrhead Elementary School Science Fair Award for 2nd place in the Grade 5 category. His entry was on "The 8 Species of Bears." He is one happy boy, receiving a medallion, $50.00 from a local business and a school certificate of merit. He worked really hard and we are very proud of him. We would like to share his success story with all of you, so that you too, can have hope with your autistic child.

At one time Joseph displayed 75-80% of the autistic behaviors. He was diagnosed at 5 yrs old at the Glenrose Rehab. Hospital in Edmonton. Our pediatrician wanted to put him on drugs to control his behaviors and help him to sleep, but we found a different answer to our prayers.

Joe's miracle recovery is with a new health product called Glyconutrients. Below is a list of before and after autism symptoms and its connected health challenges.

Symptoms Pre Glyconutritionals June 1997, Clinically diagnosed at the Glenrose in Oct/96 with PDD-mild Autism.
Autistic behaviors included, many tantrums, talking to himself, reciting videos over and over, jumping up and down and flapping his arms and hands making high pitched squeals.
Numerous food allergies including all milk, nut and gluten products as well as sesame seeds. Severe reactions in some cases.
Asthma, with regular use of inhaler
Speech and language delays
Short attention span and had trouble sitting still.
Poor social behaviors with other people/children.
Fixations on a single toy.
Unable to play with regular toys or "play pretend" using his imagination.
Interactive play almost non-existent.
Extreme sensitivities, regarding food, clothing or object textures.
Constantly catching colds and ear infections.
Continual fluid on his ears.
Low energy and endurance.
Sleeping disorder-difficulty getting to sleep and getting up several times throughout the night.


Improvement After Glyconutritionals June 1997 to Present
90% less tantrums, stopped jumping up and down and flapping arms and hands.
Attention span greatly lengthened.
Interactive communication (talking and playing) with peers.
Playing with toys, and "playing pretend" with his sister.
Conversing more.
Began noticing the world around him and talking about it.
Speech and language improved.
Less into his own world - talking about videos.
Some autism behaviors still exist and are very toned down.
Allergies are much less severe.
Immune system is stronger, he catches fewer colds.
No ear infections or traces of fluid.
Able to sit in a desk at school for extended periods of time to do his school work.
Able to play group games in gym with the other children.
Rarely needs his asthma inhaler.
More energy and endurance.
Able to initiate sleep and remain asleep throughout the night.
 
Note: To the best of our knowledge, Joe will always have autism, but at least now we have a way to cope with it, in a drug free environment that has either eliminated or toned down most of his behaviors and connected health challenges.


Update 2003-Success:
More recently, Joseph has been progressing well at school. He has an awesome school and staff that works very well with him there. They are well trained and very inclusive to all special needs. This is the 3rd year in a row that he has won 2nd place at his grade level, Annual Science Fair. He loves all dinosaurs and animals and memorizes all of the 複雜的intricate details of their lives. He has been known as "Encyclopedia Joe" amongst his classmates. He has an aide and his challenging areas are in the 3 R's as well as some social areas. He loves anything to do with nature, animals, and so does well in these areas as well as art and computers.
 
His Phys Ed time has also improved in the social and sensitivity areas, as he used to sit on the bench and hold his ears shut, during gym time. Now he is active in most of the sports activities. Lately he has been approaching people to ask them questions and is learning whole new strategies at school, which were impossible a few months ago.
 
His reading level has taken another huge leap. He has also recently, recited his own story (about St. Patrick's day) to his aide, and then read the 2 page content out to his classmates.
 
All areas are improving, some at excelled rates. We've noticed that every time we increase his glyconutritional products and add dietary improvements, all areas of his health and well-being are improved. We have observed that, if the child is not attentive or needs continual repeated instructions over and over each day, the learning process takes so much longer and is so much more frustrating for everyone involved.
 
With the glyconutrients and their healing affects, Joe is able to retain information for longer periods of time, and have an attention span that is conducive to learning. Even though Joseph has autism and health challenges, with family, school, church, and nutritional support, he is on a winning team and we are so proud and thankful for Joseph and his success. We lost our son at 3 1/2 to the world of autism, we got him back at 5 years old, when he began speaking to us again etc. We thank God for Joseph and for working wonderful things out through his life/autism for our family.
搙總頭祝您安悠樂利
