I think the world needs more "high functioning" persons on the "Autism Spectrum. Or more specifically, "high functioning" persons in general.
Amen and Amen!
If we can figure out WHY, though, some people with autism are profoundly affected as children, but grow up to be highly functioning, maybe we can find a way to help ALL children with autism to grow into happy, productive adults.

Interesting thread. My daughter has NKFAs, but boy! does she have that sensory integration disorder. It took us until this year to put a name to it.
The whole "takes an hour to get dressed because nothing feels right" thing used to annoy me - but now I just take it in stride.
Perhaps there is a link between the two things. Never thought about it before.

I don't think theres any link between autism and food allergies. Some kids have both. Some have one. Some have none.
But I find the current case in court (?) VERY interesting IRT vaccines and autism.
I don't THINK had an issue with either of them, but I know personally, some parents who have autistic kids who went downhill REAL fast at 15 mths post MMR vaccine.
Right, wrong, or indifferent, I dont know. But Im looking forward to a conclusion on the case.

This isn't about a link between autism and PA, but rather a possible link between another immune-related disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and FA. My 4 yr. old was recently diagnosed with "inflammatory bowel disease consistent with ulcerative colitis". They wouldn't definitively diagnose it as ulcerative colitis because often in young children, the diagnosis can change to Crohn's disease later on. We do have two people in my family with an IBD, but neither I nor my husband have it. It's thought to be an autoimmune-like disease in which some substance or infectious agent is thought to initiate an inflammatory response that the person's immune system cannot regulate (a failure of the Treg response, similar to the theory behind food allergy development).
Anyway, I asked among my local FA support group, and learned of two other families in my area with a child with both FA and an IBD. That may not be significant, but I thought I'd mention it here.
BTW, my child really started to show signs of an intestinal problem around the age of 2-3, when she started having occasional mucusy bowel movements, or just passing mucus by itself. It wasn't until the persistent appearance of blood that our ped. decided to refer us to a GI doctor. If your child starts having a lot of mucus or blood in the stool, please get it checked out early on.

There is a book by Kenneth Bock and Cameron Stauth which links autism, allergies, asthma, and ADHD. The authors refer to them as the "4-A disorders". Here is a link to the book.

Personally? I'm not buying into the "sudden increase", but rather, sudden identification of certain types of "autism". My father was on the spectrum, my uncle, my aunt, several cousins. My father was born in 1917. My hubby's family has numerous individuals on the "spectrum" as well. Two of my children have been identified, and apples don't fall far from the tree. (In this case, two trees. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ) It's nothing "new" or "sudden" as far as *our* families are concerned. My father wasn't "cured". He didn't need to be. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I could think of a lot of people not on the spectrum, however, who do. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
Both my sons had initial global delays, but are progressing and [i]surpassing[/i] their peers. Neither had any "cure". But then again, we never viewed either of them as [i]needing one[/i].
Everyone likes a good back scratching now and then, but do I don't really feel I need to think of it as [i]therapeutic[/i]. Even animals are allowed that much.
Gotta wonder about some of the "detoxifying" techniques tho....my father got blood transfusions ever 4 to 6 weeks for a bleeding condition. He walked around with new blood half the time anyway. (Gotta smile knowing he'd be laughing his you know what off at that and smiling so wide his gold molar would show. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img])
No advice intended, what would I know?
