    All your videos are amazing. They made me laugh and cry. I have a 4 year old son who is Autistic. He is the most amazing,strong and wonderful boy. All the things you were saying on your vids, I was like YES YES YES that is all the things my son was doing. He has come a very long way from his diagnosis at age 2. We still have a long way to go. Autism, to me is just a word and I know under that word is a strong boy who needs my help and I am there for him. You an inspiration to watch. Thank you

    that’s sweet how ur so determined to cure it.
    my initial reaction to my son’s autism was/is still shock, sadness, fear and confusion. i hope it transcends into determination and hope like yours….

    Wow Phil, I can’t believe the similarities in our thoughts when finding out about the autism. I now know why you were shocked reading our story! I completely relate to the diet being a turning point, it’s changed A’s life in the best possible way. I’m still amazed after watching this!

    Treatments help esp if it’s something he obviously appreciates or would appreciate. That’s not always clear cut. My mom was overprotective, thought I’d appreciate it. I still don’t but some things she did I do appreciate. Like teaching me. I wish she’d have protected me in other ways like homeschool.

  7. lordalfredhenry says:

    I find this all interesting because I think I’ve not seen anything like this before. From a perspective of trying to increase someone’s ability to function, a first gut reaction is logically to cure it. Not a problem but as understanding comes along, I’m sure things become more clear and it’s not so black and white. I think B&W thinking is pretty universal. So is some level of lapsed theory of mind. But it’s not irrecoverable either.

    great info, as usual,…lol…We are now responsible for being “the guy in the playground” as much as possible

    It was a church member that asked me if Ashton was autistic when he was about 2.9 or so—I instantly said no—but cried non-stop for weeks afterward–b/c I knew that ‘something’ wasn’t right—-started working with him immediately–a year later he did not get the autism diagnosis–but definitly has some similarities–

    Labels can be both helpful and harmful I think. At this time we don’t see autism as a negative label…just a description.

    aint that the truth

    Our jouney with Julius was so very similar. His diagnosis came at about the same age as Jake’s. We didn’t see the same dramatic result with the GFCG diet, but it did do him some good. He’s not on the diet at this time. He asked me, not too long ago, if he was going to get married some day. No one knows the answer to that question…autistic or not. And being married, doesn’t make your life any more or less meaningful. I’m just grateful that he can ask that question!!

    wow im glag you posted this ,when i was a child i had to go to speech class.i also had to go to a special gym class where we did special streaching exercises -you have mucho courage you sound intelegent your speacial son is very fortinate to have you as a dad

  14. PhilCommander2 says:

    before any diagnosis you believe everything will work out ok…when they get a diagnosis its a slap in the face telling you that your child is not just a unique kid, but someone with a known disorder. it shatters you. but yes, if he wasnt autistic i would never of have had a chance to help other parents. in the end its worth it, and thats something i thought i would NEVER be able to say.

  15. tripplehelix says:

    I don’t understand why labels make someone worse than they were without labels. Everyones always worse when they finally categories what they’ve found. Just think, life is much better with someone you have control of that is in need of help than being in a life helping no one. If your son wasn’t autistic, would you ever of had a thought for kids/adults with disabilities?
