Our twin sons were placed on the Autism Disorder Spectrum when they were 18 months old. They showed signs of major delay with no walking or talking (extremely vocal, but had no language), and they lacked common communication skills like pointing and clapping. After very slow and gradual progression they began walking on their own at 20 mos., but by 26 mos. they still had no language, even though they were in private speech therapy.
Norma Gairdner, H.D., began treating my sons when they were 26 mos. She began with Thought Field Therapy (TFT), treating them for various traumas and identifying toxins and sensitivities to things the boys were regularly consuming, or being exposed to, such as scented laundry products and air fresheners. After doing TFT with them, the boys’ general behavior and temperament seemed to change within that hour. With a schedule of homeopathic remedies, elimination of various foods and chemicals, and lots of TFT (most often by phone), their language became recognizable and a gush of new words began to come from them daily.
Norma’s treatments have not only opened up the huge dam that was blocking the boys’ development, but her unyielding dedication and relentless research into supportive and corrective supplements, cutting edge literature and progressive websites, to aid in further discovering a curative treatment has been irrevocably and ultimately appreciated.
There are no true words to express our debt of gratitude to her as we had ultimately felt that our twins’ “sentence” was for life, and looking around at the limited resources that western medicine recognizes, we began to have no hope for recovery. Now, we see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s all because of Norma’s guiding hand, knowledge and determination. Today, the boys are 3.5 years old. They are walking, and talking (all the time), and both boys are extremely social and loving to everyone around them. It is expected by their pediatrician that they will be removed from the Autism Disorder Spectrum in July 2010, at their next Neurological Pediatrician appointment.
With love and admiration.
N.B. The boys were removed from the Autism Spectrum by their M.D., in July 2010. They entered kindergarten in the fall. Spring 2011, mother reports: ‘They’re thriving!’
