• What is Autism?

    Autism is a developmental disorder, typically diagnosed during the first three years of life. It is neurological in nature, affecting the brain in four major areas of functioning: behavior, language/communication, social skills, and sensory systems. The cause of autism remains a mystery. Current research suggests there may be different subsets of individuals on the spectrum, arising from genetics, environmental insults, or a combination of both.

  • Vaccination Information.

    I never questioned vaccines until my son was injured by them. I thought I had to give my kids the shots and that it was for their own health.

    Then I started asking questions… suddenly I was no longer welcome in the pediatrician's office.

  • Nutrition & Health.

    This is where my original journey began. I was starting to really examine what I was feeding my family and what was filling my pantry shelves. I was shocked to realize that the "healthy" foods I thought were benefiting my kids, were really laden with poisons and toxins. Something had to change.

  • GF/CF Diet.

    Gluten is a special type of protein found in wheat, rye, & barley. It has a sticky, gluey texture that helps give wheat products the ability to bake properly.

    Casein is a protein found in milk & dairy products.

    For autistic children, their bodies do not process gluten (wheat) and casein (dairy) correctly and cause an opioid reaction and like all opioids (heroin, etc.) they need to feed their habit with more of the same.

  • Current Research.

    According to the Autism Research Institute, although autism is often described as a "mystery", understanding of etiologies, individual profiles, and risk factors has increased substantially. Much of this progress is represented in peer-reviewed articles published in clinical and research-oriented medical journals.
    Pubmed searches on March 11, 2010, indicated that from 2005 through 2009, the number of studies has virtually doubled.

  • Hope in New Methods.

    Once I began taking my son to the DAN doctor, I finally had a plan of action to begin the healing process. The diet and supplements began to make sense, and better yet, I started seeing positive changes in my wonderful son.

    We have yet to find a "cure" for autism, but that does not mean that we can't improve the lives of those living with autism. Biomedical treatment, through a D.A.N. doctor can be used to benefit people with an autism diagnosis.

     
  • You Are Not Alone.

    ASDs occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, but are four times more likely to occur in boys than in girls. CDC estimates that between about 1 in 80 and 1 in 240, with an average of 1 in 110, children in the United States have an ASD.

    1 in 110 children in the U.S. have ASD

    1 in 58 boys have autism

    1 in 68 families are affected by autism

     
 

A Place for Hope & Guidance

This website has been designed by parents, for parents. Parenthood did not come with a manual and when you have a child with special needs, the answers to questions seem even harder to find.

At My Child, My Choice, you will find information about childhood delays, autism, supplements, diets, vaccines and much more.

We are parents who love and accept our children for the miracles that they are, but we also believe that they deserve every advantage we can offer them.

Jack's Story

God has blessed me with an amazing little boy. His name is Jack and he has changed my life. Jack is the youngest of 3 and by this time I thought I knew what I was doing as a mom. I used my maternal instincts, lessons from my older 2 kids and the advice of my pediatrician.
