"As I (Joey's Mom) read each and every email everyday, I go back to that place where no one could answer any of my questions "ALONE."  This is the reason why UF4A will never turn away a parent in need and further believes science is the KEY to unlocking AUTISM.  Below are some sample "pleas for help" which continue to roll in.  We've also included some insight into the treatment that we were able to help facilitate.  We are so very blessed to be able to help"- Joey's Mom

Case#(S) Parent email to Mieko: Jan. 2011 - We met Case#(S)  when she was almost 2. The home she was in was her 2nd foster home. Case#(S)  had a G-tube and was oxygen dependant. Sarah was born with fetal alcohol syndrome, was code blue and suffered an anoxic brain ingury, she was a 27 week premi. We adopted her at age 2, Even then her tantrums were severe but managable (she would pull her own hair out) as time has gone by her tantrums are much worse and she is now 72 pounds. Her current diagnosis is:ADD, ADHD, Autism ,FAS, intermittent explosive disorder and mild MR.

She has been on just about every medication you can imagine. So far we have tried...Abilify, Zoloft, Lithium Carbonate, Risperdal, Seroquel, lorazepam, Risperdol M tab, Lithium, Zyprexa Zidis, Benadryl, Methylphenidate, Carbamazepine, Clonazepam, Concerta, Guanfacine, Hydroxyzine, Phenobarbital, Daytrana Patch..but none of these help. She is now on ...Clonidine, Zoloft, Thorazine and Depakote. She has moments where she is stable then , UGH, she can be so violent!! We had her placed in residential treatment, but, she got worse and we brought her home. This time with lots of support TBS, Intensive behavior therapy and Behaviorial respite. Yesterday she had a HUGE violent melt down and bit out therapist kicked hit and bit me this tantrum lasted and hour and 10 min.
I would love to talk to you. I need help.

Case#(S) is now under Dr. H care. 

Feb.11.11 - Perfect day ! ok, maybe a few flair-ups but easily re-directed.

Feb.12.11 - pretty good morning once again some agitation, but re-direction worked...We went to the park this morning. On the way home I told her if she continues to have such good days she can easily earn yard sales next Saturday (this is something she loves to do but must be earned) She said "It's my new medicine, it's helping me be calm" WOW!!!!

2 days NO tantrums !!!!!!!!!!! WOW !! wish us luck for Sunday !!   :)

She had some explosive moments but they were very short and easily redirected...NO RESTRAINING NECESSARY WOOO HOOO !!!!  

2-28 good day a bit silly and unfocused but no tantrums. YAY

Nov.11.11 - "WOW!!! things are going great! As Thanksgiving draws near I reflect back to last year....Sarah was 2 months into her residental treatment. Things were not going well there at all. Her tantrums had become worse and they had her heavely medicated. On weekend visits she was completely out of control. Her violent tantrums were averaging 3-10 tiimes a day. Fast forward to now ....WOW! she averages 3 tantrums a month!!! She has come so far. This year at Thanksgiving I am thankful for my health, my family and, for you .....being there, listening, and your wisdom.

Thank you"
