Learn about autism on Sept. 18

One mother's journey through the world of Autism
Susie Mickle will share her story of what she has learned about Autism through her son's diagnosis. 1 in 91 children in the United States today are diagnosed with 
an Autism spectrum disorder. This is quite a contrast from 1 in 10,000 children in the early 1990s. Is this a reflection of better diagnosis or a more toxic world?
She will discuss the diagnostic criteria for Autism and what it means medically. Susie believes that Autism is a neurobiological disease and not a mental 
illness. (Metals and toxins play a significant role in the regression into Autism. This means that Autism is not only treatable, but can be preventable!) 
She will share her family's journey back to health through diet, supplements and other treatments. There will be time for questions, as well. 
ABOUT SUSIE MICKLE: Susie is a mother of four children. She was thrown into the Autism world when her oldest son, Ben, was diagnosed in 2006. Ben has Asperger's 
Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism. In addition, two of her other children suffer from medical issues that are often found in families with 
Autism. (Ben is on his way to recovery!) Susie is an active member of several Autism groups. She spends much of her time researching and treating her children. Autism is treatable and preventable!
