DO YOU FEEL YOU LIKE A HAMSTER RUNNING AIMLESSLY
ON THE “AUTISM WHEEL,”
TRYING SO HARD, BUT GETTING NOWHERE?

Do you feel burned out, overwhelmed & frustrated?

While there is no cure for autism, I can give you dozens of tips that can help your
child blossom – and make life a lot easier for your whole family!

Dear fellow parent
You may be thinking to yourself: “I’m not up for this!” You may be discouraged, overwhelmed, and frustrated at your child’s lack of progress. You might even be angry. It’s okay. I’ve been there and I think I can help.

How many times have you experienced any
of the following problems?

  • It is difficult for you to talk to your child or understand what he’s thinking, because he gives you a blank stare, makes little to no eye contact and
    is “lost in his own world.”
  • You find yourself jumping from “one therapy to the next”, because none of them seem to be making any difference in your child’s behavior
  • You dread answering the phone, out of fear that your child’s school is calling yet again, reporting another meltdown
  • Your child has difficulty interacting with his or her peers, because of limited language, repetitive language, or constantly saying words that don’t sound even close to
    the correct word

Over time, all this can make you feel like life
is spiralling out of control!

This struggle often leads to:

  • Feelings of isolation
  • Dreading taking your child to the mall, local stores, public parks or restaurants, because you constantly fear that your child may have another embarrassing meltdown
  • A tremendous strain on your marriage or other relationships
  • A non-existent social life
  • The feeling that you are neglecting the rest of your family
Please don’t be discouraged. There is hope! Although you may be overwhelmed with the difficulties that your child is facing, I have great news for you:

You are not alone.

I have not only faced many of the challenges that you have in front of you right now; I have learned how to overcome the challenge. I have successfully worked joyfully with an amazing autistic child, and you can, too.

I’m not going to lie: Even though the job requires the detective skills of a Sherlock Holmes, the patience of Job, boundless energy, and nerves of steel at times, there are many proven strategies & therapies that can be used to make life a lot easier both for you & your child.

Those proven strategies are outlined in my new book, but before I get into that, let me tell you my story.

My name is Connie Howse. My son, Scott, had every behavior listed above, and many more. In 1986, when he was diagnosed at 2 ½, autism was rare. Few people had ever heard of it, and even fewer knew how to treat it.

After he was diagnosed, every single day was a challenge. It seemed like he spent every waking hour screaming at the top of his lungs. Any sort of touch like hugs, diaper changing, scratching his back or even washing his face was excruciatingly painful. His language was limited to just a few words, and we were clueless about what to do.

Looking for answers, we threw ourselves into researching this mysterious disorder. Unfortunately, most doctors had no idea about the disorder and those who did know of it, seemed to know nothing of its treatment. We were basically on our own.

About Connie Howse
Connie Howse was recently interviewed by PBS for the documentary “A Wider World.” A tireless advocate for the autistic, she helped save the internationally-recognized center-based program for the autistic, Burger Center, from closure.  She has also spoken at conferences and before school boards on educational issues related to autism.  An accomplished performer and violinist with 23 years of teaching experience, she has successfully utilized music therapy with special needs students and lectured on the healing powers of music.  She is a graduate of Spring Arbor University, trained in Psychology and Music.  She and her husband of 35 years, Ken, and their four sons (one of which, Scott, has autism), reside in Livonia, Mich.
Looking for answers, we threw ourselves into researching this mysterious disorder.
Trying to solve the problem, we did everything that had the word “therapy” in it. Music Therapy, Speech therapy, Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration Therapy, Holding Therapy, Physical Therapy, The SunRise Program, plus almost every vitamin and food supplement that showed any promise. We tried it all! Yet, nothing seemed to help.

Finally, after trying many different therapies, enrolling Scott in several different school program, we came across the Burger School for the Autistic, where he began to blossom.We found a gifted college student tutor, a music therapist & an ex-marine that fostered his love of running.

It was at Burger that he learned to read, develop his social skills & play everything from chess to the Game of Life. He sang the National Anthem for a Detroit Tigers game and went on trips to Washington D.C., Upper Michigan, and Toronto, Ontario where he saw “Phantom of the Opera.”

Finally, after we felt like he had learned all he could at Burger, we decided to do the unthinkable – home school Scott at a tiny little one-room schoolhouse. There, Scott completed 2 years of academic work in one year, began running cross-country, competed in checkers tournaments, began piano lessons, and played in a recital.

In Junior High, he continued to do well academically, he continued playing the piano and began to develop a real gift for cross country, winning every race he competed in his eighth grade year and ultimately winning the city championship.

In high school, he made it through by working harder than everyone else, frequently staying up until midnight or later to work on his math problems. Tutors were frequent visitors to our home, and study hall was his get-it-all-together-before-I-forget-where-I-put-it place.

In college, he joined the cross country team, and actually became their most valuable runner! When he got good grades, and actually made Academic All-American, the administration was really scratching their heads!

I share this story not because I expect every autistic child will reach the same level he has, but because I have learned many of the problems your child is likely facing right now can be dealt with. THERE IS HOPE.

I guess you could say that is the purpose of my new book – to help you understand autism, learn what interventions have the best chance of success, and give you the confidence to make the best choices for your child and your family.

It is unique because it provides not only the latest, most up-to-date autism research (saving you countless hours of looking on your own), but takes you a step further by sharing not only an analysis of the most proven therapies, but by providing real-life examples of how you can use these therapies to effectively help your child!

image10image11
Doctors, therapists, and teachers can tell you what to do until they are blue in the face, but the important question is, how will it work in the real world for your child? And how do you actually motivate your child to do the therapy?
That’s what I show you in my book.

Here is a sample of just a few of the things you will learn:

  • Is it better to have professional help at an IEP, or go it alone? The answer may surprise you.
  • A creative way to get help for your child, without going broke
  • A fun activity that you’d never expect would get your child talking
  • How “man’s best friend” can also be your autistic child’s best friend!
  • If you can only buy one piece of exercise equipment for your child, make it this one – it can be had for about $50!
  • How to know when you have the right doctor – and when to say “Bye-Bye”
  • A simple, “Why didn’t I think of that?” product to help your child finally get a good night’s sleep
  • When special ed classes are probably a better option than the norm
  • When a diagnosis of autism is not really autism
  • How certain foods you may already have in your kitchen can help your child stay calm
  • How, and WHY, just changing the products you are probably using to clean your house can make a difference in your autistic child – and maybe the whole family!
image12image13
And that’s not all. Perhaps some of most valuable contributions in the book come directly from Scott himself! His stories and poems provide a rare glimpse into an autistic person’s thought process, and how he responded to the therapies that changed his life. His engaging, dry humor captures autism’s funny side, and his mince-no-words, let-it-all-out style keeps his meaning clear. While every autistic person is unique, they share universal characteristics.

Together, this book can help you better understand autism.

When you purchase this new book & implement its strategies, you can:
  • Enter IEP meetings with confidence, and a plan, knowing that the outcome will be favorable
  • Have less fear about visiting public places, family parties and other functions, because your child can experience much less frequent meltdowns

With your newfound knowledge, it will be easier to make informed decisions about your child’s treatment and education. You will be able to better see the world through your child’s eyes. Autism will be less mystifying to you.

With the benefit of our 28 years of experience with the disability & Scott’s unique insights (which will give you insights as to how an autistic child thinks), you will be better equipped to handle the challenges of working with an autistic child. As a special bonus, you will also receive:

Special Bonus:  Gluten Free Diet Made Easy – A $17 Value

Dr. John Hicks of Pathway Medical Advocates in Los Gatos, California, is a nationally-known doctor for the treatment of autism. He made a statement years ago which startled me. He said “Up to 80% of individuals with autism have either a food intolerance or allergy to wheat, dairy, and/or soy and benefit from what is called a GFCF diet.” Some are sensitive to all three foods, and others only one or two.

This could be the key to a marked improvement in your child’s overall health and behavior. The significance of food allergies is discussed at length in Autistic and Awesome: A Proven Roadmap to Raising Autistic Kids and Loving It. Your bonus, Gluten-Free Diet Made Easy, takes it a step further. In this handy section, I will show you:

  • How to read product labels and quickly find gluten free ingredients in grocery stores, restaurants, or on-the-go WITHOUT having to waste time or money, or risk your child’s health
  • What to do when you can’t find gluten free foods on the restaurant menu – your meal isn’t over
  • How to stock your kitchen cabinet with the right ingredients, for less money than you’re expecting
Making This Affordable for Families With a Loved
One on the Autism Spectrum


Today, you have a choice. You can try everything, empty your bank account, and nearly lose your mind, like we almost did, or you can learn what is effective and use your time and resources wisely. You can sit helplessly in IEP school meetings, feeling intimidated, or confidently meet your child’s needs. You can continue to endure sleepless nights, or try a simple, proven solution. You can live with the anguish of an “untouchable” child, or use proven therapies to feel like a real Mom again!

Obtaining all the information that I have collected in this book by yourself is not easy. You would have to read numerous books, subscribe to years’ worth of autism newsletters, attend conferences, experiment with many
different medications, supplements and therapies and visit many different specialists (many of whom charge over $100 / hour). It could cost you thousands.

I have a much more affordable solution.

To make this important information available to as many people as possible, I have decided to price it at only $19 (that’s less than the cost of a family meal at many restaurants.)

Because you can download both Autistic and Awesome: A Proven Roadap for Raising Autistic Kids and Loving It and Gluten Free Simplified within minutes of purchase, you’ll get information you can use TODAY.

I am confident that you are up to this challenge! With the right therapies & the help of this book, you can conquer autism!
