    @staxpetrick Make sure that you don’t ostracize the kids. I have autism and that happened to me and I still have a hatred to my teachers for treating me in an inferior way. Respect the kids Autism isn’t a disease!

    Did you notice any change with the Chelation approach you used. I have been looking into it but am so afraid of possible negative outcomes.

    his family learned he was allergic to dairy products and then cut the dairy products out of his diet. many autistic children have severe reactions to any ingested substances to which they are allergic, even a tiny amount of thimerosol in a vaccine can trigger a bad raction in a child who is allergic to the mercury.
    it can be dairy products with one child, mercury with another, and still other kinds of toxic poisinings with other autistic children, so methodical testing for allegies pays off.

    what did you do to help him? meds, suppliments, therapies, etc???

  9. snickpickle says:

    The difference between your son and so many other children with autism is that your son is so fortunate to live in a loving, caring family! This is a truly amazing video, not just of your son, but o your family! Thank you for posting this! :-)

    Keep up the good fight!!!

    I’m only a senior in high school right now and I want to be a special ed teacher for autistic children and videos like this inspire me to keep this as my profession. Very cute kid and good luck and I wish your family the best.

    Wow! That’s so great! You can tell he is truly happy, too. I love how your kids obvious care about one another. And the little one that was so excited about the “motorcycle” at Jacob’s 6th birthday was too cute!! “You got a motorcycle!!!” That conversation at the end about the butterfly is AMAZING!

    Very cool video. I do ABA with preschool aged children at a school district with an awesome Autism program. I see such growth over the course of a school year and it’s really neat to see 2 years worth of growth like that. Very inspiring to push past those hard days and stick with it!

  16. fiddlekid08 says:

    I understand Jacob which seems like a very good son and child. My son also has autism and is not speaking right now but is very smart. They are awsome kids.

  17. rachplus6 says:

    Sorry I missed this post. I am so happy Jacob brought encouragement to you. I homeschool some of my children too. Jacob attends an autism classroom and gets amazing services through are district, so I have opted to not homeschool him. That is awesome that you are able to devote so much time and energy to your son. Keep your chin up, it’s not an easy job, but as you know, every little step forward is a great reward.

  18. rachplus6 says:

    It is truly amazing to see my son speak. I remember when I couldn’t imagine what his voice would sound like. Thank you for your kind post.

  19. rachplus6 says:

    Thank you so much!

  20. rachplus6 says:

    Maybe before you comment you should read what the video is asking viewers to observe (his lack of stimming). Did you watch the whole video? He responded, more as the video progressed in age. Did you consider the fact that I use “long” sentances, so the viewer of the videos can observe his lack of understanding, and note his responses on some of the simpler sentances. Than there is a greater ability to view progress in later videos as he responds to more complex sentance structure.

  21. mompluspaynes says:

    I don’t see a helmet, I hear mom calling and nagging thru out but no response. Her sentences are sooooo long. How could he possibly understand or respond.
    I do not discount how much she luvs and adores her son but why after the yeras on this video has no one taught her how to reach her son. Is it really that bad in the USA?

  22. Birdona says:

    Very touching!!!! God bless your child and help you in all efforts that you make every day! Jacob boy is awesome!

    Watching this video only encourages me that much more in the profession I have decided to go into. I just turned 26 and received my GED and am going to community college for Early Childhood Ed with Special Needs then I’ll go on to a 4 year school to get my masters in Speech Language Pathology, I hope to one day work with non verbal children like Jacob. Not only children with Autism, but also Down syndrome and other disorders that with children that have almost no verbal skills.
