“Education without stability will not stick. Stability without education has no value!”

Welcome back,

I have missed chatting with you – and I am back with a very important newsletter.

I hear from dozens of parents every month telling me they have tried everything and either:

  • nothing works, or
  • nothing sticks.

So first, you are not alone, if you have seen this.

But second, there is a reason that this happens.

It turns out that there are a few critical factors that are super important in helping our kids learn, and that these factors work symbiotically – which means that each one of them supports the other.

If you have only done diet, that is not enough. Your child is healthy, but bored to death.

If you are waiting for magical speech to show up, or for apps on the iPad to do their magic, remember the most complex communication we have seen in Autistic kids comes from low-tech letter boarding techniques such as RPM and S2C.

If you have done reflexes to death, congratulations, your child’s body has developed its intelligence, but it is now time to feed it with age appropriate education.

In this podcast, I talk about reasons that diets and even communication strategies sometimes don’t work in a vacuum and what you can do to help that work.

But in a nutshell, here’s the answer:

Communication, Education, Anti-Inflammatory Diets, Biomedical Interventions and Movement Therapies work in a complex web of symbiosis. We really need at least 3 of them to work together – appropriate communication, eating food that heals, nourishes and does not inflame, and moving so that your body knows where it is in space.

The cherry on the pie is to be unrelenting is Assuming Intelligence in your child no matter what people tell you.

Onward my friend!
