ASD is a collection of about 1,000 different conditions causing various symptoms of ASD in varying degrees. When caused by genetics there are more than 100 genes involved. It can be also caused by viruses in the mother such as German measles and they are even considering maternal stress as a culprit .

I wrote an email to autismcanada.org . They are asking for experiences in which families were denied the disability tax credit . They challenging the CRA for being inequitable . Apparently CTV is also running a story which finds them inequitable . And we heard from hubby’s admin officer that they have been given a slap on the wrist for not judging fairly . Maybe if my son reapplies he will get the disability tax credit .

Oh ok, read the story. My son doesn't want to be different though. He is happy as an autistic. We don't want him not to be autistic. Autistic is fine with us.

 

If it relieves his anxiety, and makes his expression of autism such that he can function more independently, wouldn't you jump at the chance if some dietary change would help him? if he could still have his quirks, but be able to communicate enough to hold a job someday, and to self advocate (if he has a problem with bright lights, he takes his own precautions like bringing sunglasses or picking the cubicle near the window so he can turn the lights off, etc.). It would not change who he was as a person. if it actually worked, it might be a relief to him and you.

He would never change his dietary habits though. That he is VERY VERY VERY steadfast about. Even from infancy if he didn’t like something it got vomited back out . And now if you try to change his diet on him he will just refused to eat like at all . Food sensory issues is one of his biggest issues .
