On the other hand, maybe Winnie is a just a Mom who has been around long enough to see treatments come and go, and she just happens to be smart enough to ask the right questions. She is doing what all of you ought to be doing. And you should be asking these kind of questions of any professional (alternative an mainstream) that proposes treatment or therapy for your child, this goes for schools too.
OK the problem with that assumption is ... if she's talking about here say on chelation being bad that is the same as us talking about chelation working for our kids ... if she has chelated her kids and seen nothing, she would have posted details and why and what ... thereby making her position un ambigous. BTW I now have another theory to drop into the mix. She is a service provider - ABA, or OT or SI or similar, there by chelation directly takes $$$ out of her pocket ... There is always a motive ... I need to see therapists get put in their place, I need to see the kids need less and less and less of it so that their Extortion rates will drop and I can get mine in as soon as I can ... 1 year wait list is insane ... and $85 an hour not covered by insurance is insane too ... ergo ... I need to get on top of chelation, have it work in my sons case and I need to find any and all snippets of information ... just like the OT, ST, SI and ABA therapists need to keep us from getting all the info ... BTW my autism society is in their pocket ... they show up and preach ... ironically its also in a church ... Just fits perfect ...
