  1. My name is Wendy and I live in Wyoming.
    How effective is the casein/gluten free diet? my son doesn’t seem to be affected by it. He’s 8. But my friend Carol’s daughter who has Assburgers says it helped her daughter calm down a lot.

  2. I have had the pleasure of watching what Lisa has accomplished with their own son who has Autism-He did not speak until about three and now you would never know he has any problem at all. She is able to understand his problems and can work around them and he is a SWEETHEART..

  3. I listened for 11:58, and NOTHING relevant to autism! Seriously, parents of special needs kiddos don’t have time to listen to idle prattle. Where’s the beef?
