Autism Redefined
Keli Lindelien

At twelve months old Benjamin was a normal baby. Between 12 and 18 months though-and possibly due to an adverse reaction from a vaccine-Benjamin's language and social skills deteriorated rapidly and he began to turn inward. Up to this point Benjamin's story follows the unfortunately familiar pattern of children who are diagnosed with autism. THE GIFT FROM MY SON however is a story of autism unlike any other. Avoiding the behavioural therapy approach that is so popular Lindelien learned to meet Benjamin at his level as an individual and was rewarded with insights into the mind of an autistic child that include an altogether new theory about the role of left versus right brain dominance. She also reveals a number of natural medicine therapies that reversed many of Benjamin's worst symptoms. ¨ Includes a comprehensive chart of the progression and reversal of Benjamin's physical symptoms that resulted from a course of natural therapies ¨ Offers tips to parents of autistic children including toilet training advice and how to make travelling less traumatic
