So I got a call from child development this morning. At first it was disheartening, this lady was really confusing. She had me thinking that Silas was in some sort of limbo stage. Her program only deals with children enrolled in pre-school or school and Infant and Child development only deals with Children up to three. She was making it sound like a year until anything would happen.
Soon Infant and Child Development called and said they’d be taking over for us…phew. So our person…I dunno what she would be called…is Dorothy and she’s coming to see us tomorrow night!! We’ll talk about Silas and get all of the referral forms filled out so he can be on the waiting list for therapy asap. Phewf.
It’s going to be a long time before FVHAN (Fraser Valley Heath Assessment Network) gets here to assess him. Aparrently a year. So he wont have that official diagnosis which is fine with me. Maybe by the time they get here he’ll be lots better anyway, who knows.
I’m going to step out on a limb here and say that I think biomedical intervention is going to help Silas the most. I know not all of you believe in alternative medicine but I sure do. Our DAN Doctor (defeat autism now) will be helping us with that…once we find one. Just simple things like detoxing from heavy metals, getting rid of candida, taking Mb12 shots etc are all very helpful. Here I’ll show you.
Interesting huh? I think so. I know with my own self, supplements and such can change my entire day if I end up talking them all. I just really think they’ll have something for Silas. Part of me wonders how toxic that little body is from me being a hairdresser while I was pregnant. All those fumes and such. Who knows?
It’s strange to me how I had SUCH a concern for Silas’ diet as a baby. I was MAJORLY concerned with him eating all organic, breastfeeding for a long time, and also getting loads of omegas into him. Omegas help build your brains and I was doing it to help prevent ADHD, it’s been shown as a good preventative measure. I was SO convicted to do this. I’m so glad now. I really have nothing to beat myself up about. In fact I’m pretty sure he’s a lot better because of it. I need to get him back on fish oils though and onto a better vitamin supplement…I don’t thin Arther supplements are going to cut it anymore. So I’m off to research online and get my boy some of that.
PS for those of you who are gagging at the though of alternative medicine…I hope to show you the light 🙂
