Video:Fathering Autism- Tears On Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was a disaster…last year. This year however we gave her a day she deserved. She’s the best mom and she deserves the best. We cooked dinner and made her cry. Last year tears on mother’s day was a bad thing…not this year. Last year we didn’t do anything special and Abbie had a few meltdowns. It was a rough day. The rough days make the good ones that much better though.

Free certificates of participation are available upon successful completion of a brief knowledge quiz: https://www.classmarker.com/online-test/start/?quiz=qkb5afb6d84d899a

The study abstract for the research described in the talk is online at: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10803-017-3277-z

This webinar was made possible through donor support including a generous grant from Local 25 Boston Teamsters.

Nutritionist Kelly Barnhill describes new evidence that nutrient intake and dietary status are not contributing factors to the observed decrease in Bone Mineral Density in boys with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Kelly Barnhill was a principal investigator in recent research published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders (November 2017) identified reduced bone mineral density in 4-8 year old boys with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) compared with healthy age-matched controls.

This provides evidence that dietary intervention in ASD, such as a gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet, which is frequently implemented to address feeding issues, food allergies, or GI concerns, does not result in deficiencies in calcium and vitamin D, or reduced BMD when implemented under the supervision of a qualified clinician.

The study results also indicate that boys with ASD reported significantly greater GI symptoms than boys without ASD, though this was not correlated with BMD status. And contrary to the interpretation of results in prior published studies, this work finds no evidence of reduced BMD in the managed use of a gluten and casein elimination diet, indicating that other factors are involved.

Blog:The Other Side- Not thinking in pictures; autism and a possible sub-diagnosis of aphantasia.

It’s been a curious time – one of transitions, I guess. Spring weather and lighter nights coincide with reaching beyond the 2 year anniversary of my diagnosis of autism.

A decisive diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome came as a surprise, I expected equivocation and maybes’. Hidden disability is a tricky rogue, adept at fooling even the person who embodies and lives it. A subtle form of gaslighting is our daily bread. You look fine! You
