We developed this site for parents of children who are autistic. We, as parents who live with autism, experience many things over the years. We wish we had had a "blueprint" to follow along the way, so as parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and those on down the line who are living with autism 24/7/365 can tell you, we know you need help - “honest help”. We can provide you answers from credible sources that have a practical use, from people who understand autism related challenges in more than just an academic context.
- Parents of Aaron, our autistic son, providing a community of support for parents.
What we Offer
Our goal is to encourage healthy lifestyles, promote independence and inclusion, and expand personal growth to improve the quality of life for all individuals impacted by autism.
We empower parents by providing them with access to autism related resources and relevant information from credible sources that have a practical use, from people who understand autism related challenges in more than just an academic context. We believe that every person affected by autism has the right to have access to quality resources and a “blueprint” of guidance needed to develop and build life skills in order to achieve an abundance of independence.
Advocacy and Independence
• Education and Information regarding Autism, its symptom(s), and treatments. • Unique lessons learned advice to help you respond appropriately to a specific or exclusive situation. • Advocacy to support you with learned procedures that ensure your insurance claims get covered and paid • Volunteer help or professional information regarding the person with Autism. • Products we’ve used that help mitigate and better manage the numerous symptoms of the disorder.
Service Dogs are trained to work for a variety of special disabilities and provide physical assistance or control for some autism behaviors.
The Human-animal interaction alleviates stress in children, reduces disruptive characteristics and abnormal behaviors.
Service Dogs are an essential part of managing extreme cases of Autism.
Researchers examined the genetics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by analyzing mutations in the genomes of individuals and their families. They discovered that a special kind of genetic mutation works differently from typical mutations in how it contributes to the condition.
As they grow, children increasingly focus their attention on social elements in their environment, such as faces or social interactions. However, children with autism are often more interested in non-social stimuli, such as textures or geometric shapes. By tracking where children look while viewing a cartoon, researchers have revealed that attention in autistic children does not follow the same developmental trajectory as that of typically developing children. Instead, they each gradually develop their own unique attentional preferences.

Our grandson Aaron was diagnosed severely autistic at 2 years old and was non-verbal. In 2008, I was introduced to Nikken. I had listened to many testimonies about Nikken and Autism, so we bought the Kenko Naturest Mattress Topper and a Nikken Kenko Dream Comforter with magnetic technology for him. Immediately we noticed that Aaron did not flop and thrash around in the bed like he used to.
Autism therapies are expensive; we searched for practical solutions to use on a daily basis and without a big time commitment or ongoing expensive obligations. We found that essential oils modified his behavior and enhanced sensory therapy strategies.
