A Story of Recovery on CNN

December 10, 2009

Has it really been almost 2 months since my last post? Trust me, I’ve had plenty of brilliant ideas floating around in my head of things to write about on here, but I never seem to actually get around to doing it. Perhaps in 2010 I will maintain some semblance of activity on here.

Just saw this very inspiring story on CNN’s website and thought I’d share it here. I thought it was a very well-done piece about a family who recovered their son from autism. The main person in this interview, Karen Siff Exkorn, has actually written a book that we’ve (ok my wife read the whole thing, but I looked at it) read called “The Autism Sourcebook.”

I found that our story is fairly similar to this family’s story in the beginning. The reporter notes that not every child will respond as favorably as this one did to early intervention like ABA therapy, but I’m hopeful we’re on the road to the same success the Exkorn’s achieved.

I’ve been trying in vain to embed the clip right here, but I’m not having much success. So just go here and you can watch it.
