WHAT PARENTS SAY

 
“Our son has been receiving training for over a year and we are extremely pleased with the changes we have noticed. He has a diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome and has difficulty in social situations and interacting with people. We have noticed that he does not 'fly off the handle' as often and will stop and think before speaking.”

“This is one of the best things that we could have done for not only our son, but our family as well.”

 

In this clip the mother talks about how her daughter used to be very isolating and there would be an hour and a half fight of screaming and yelling just to make her bed. After the therapy, the daughter is no longer oppositional, they no longer have the old battles, she is sharing more due to having the language to express how she feels. The mother never expected results so quickly - vast changes after only the 2nd session - the daughter is on par emotionally with her peers now. Doug West, Manager of Autism Services, interviews.

 

In this first clip of four, the mothers each talk about the initial diagnosis and their child's difficulty dealing with people and school, and the positive changes from the therapy. "Mom, I feel better. I can do this now." Video by Geoff Webb, Vancouver Filmmaker and Photographer: cargocollective.com/geoffwebb.

 

In this second clip of four, the mothers talk about living with an autistic child before the therapy and after the therapy. About how their kids feel more comfortable in their skin and have friends now. The parents feel like they can finally let go a little as a result of the treatment. Video by Geoff Webb, Vancouver Filmmaker and Photographer: cargocollective.com/geoffwebb.

 

In this third clip of four, the mothers talk about how their kids felt locked in their own world before treatment, and now they can calm themselves and manage/cope much better. About how sometimes one mother forgets she even has an autistic son now. "Mom, I think I will be fine." Video by Geoff Webb, Vancouver Filmmaker and Photographer: cargocollective.com/geoffwebb. Doug West, Manager of Autism Services, interviews.

 

In this last clip in the series, the mothers talk about how they're hearing from teachers about how much their kids have progressed, that there are no negative side effects from the therapy, and the big decrease they've noticed in anxiety. Video by Geoff Webb, Vancouver Filmmaker and Photographer: cargocollective.com/geoffwebb. Doug West, Manager of Autism Services, interviews.
