Interesting
I was wondering, for those parents out there that have kids with some form of autism, have you ever experienced this?? All day today Little Bug has been saying things. He's not stimming as much. He's calmer.
And then Hubby showed me the article about fevers improving symptoms of autism. I had never heard that. But we witnessed it today! He had a fever awhile ago and when I asked him if he wanted to play with "Buzz toys or animals" he said, "animals". He wanted to watch "Lion King" today and I wouldn't let him. It makes him mad. He screams and cries at certain parts that are intense. Usually, when I won't let him watch it he bangs his head. Today he just picked a different movie and it was no big deal.
I'm curious if any of you other mom's who have kids with autism have ever noticed this?? The article I linked to is very interesting... it really made me think...

That is fascinating. No, I never saw that with Brent--at least not that I remember. Thanks for the link to the article.

I'm not experienced or informed in this area at all. I've been reading and learning a lot about autism this past year, though, for some reason it seems like it's being brought to my attention more and more, and I am happy to be learning about it. I'm really hoping, though, that it's not a sign that I need to get prepared for something in the future.

I don't know if I would have the kind of courage or patience parents of children with autism have in order to work with it and such. I REALLY ADMIRE YOU!!!!

I hope the improvements in Little Bug are permanent(?). At least, hopeful. ;)

Wow...that's fascinating! I know that dietary controls can make a huuuuge difference, but this is new info to me.
