ABA was a nightmare of indoors 40 hours of activities, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and no change in symptoms. The collection of autism supplements cost thousands of dollars and sleepless nights were spent researching drained her in two different ways. 

At some point, his symptoms put him and his family in dangerous situations. A vegan diet that was supposed to deal with mucus and health problems actually made matters worse. The 1500 dollar school was an absolute nightmare for her son. He developed night terrors, stopped sleeping and tried to jump out from his car seat to escape.
