Home School Lessons Take 1: Dougie Reads

20120625-150423.jpg

We live and learn in a balance between home school and un-school. We do have some set lessons and routine that helps things go smoothly– although most of the time you can find us learning math by counting the hermit crabs atop the steep hill.

Doug and I write stories for Dougie that incorporate science, religion, math, social studies, history, art, etc.–so that he learns reading comprehension while getting a juicy story.

Dougie is really into making films, and part of our “curriculum” has him making story boards and drawing characters. He LOVES it. He wants to share more with you on camera, so here we go!

This video is just the beginning! We’ll have lots more.

Check out our new online autism healing classes. We’re sharing everything that helped us get to this point!

Autism Recovery Videos: Dougie’s Autism Recovery Journey Step by Step Updated

Dougie was once diagnosed with autism, and was very sick with candida yeast infections, vaccine poison, heavy metals, viruses, parasites, bacterial infections, food allergies and more. He began regressing developmentally at age 2 or slightly before. He did display all symptoms of autism, and in fact, we were told he was severe by the Chicago Schools. Some said he would never talk. We were more worried that he was very physically ill and also that he had dangerous tendencies like lack of awareness and not being able to protect himself (walking outside, crossing street). We wanted our son to have the best chance at health possible. We completely changed our lives, diet and spirituality. As we unpeeled layers of physical illness, the autism symptoms surfaced and left. He is 7 and quite healthy now. We homeschool him and we all love it,

These are our latest videos. Dougie loves outer space and making films. He draws story boards and films himself.

Enjoy!

Autism Recovery Videos: Dougie’s Autism Recovery Journey Step by Step

We just wanted to share some of Dougie’s moments of fame over the last  few years. All of these vids are from May 07-Mar 2010, so they began after we were on Body Ecology and Raw Food for some time. I’ll get some more recent ones up soon!

This pic is of him on Valentines Day 2010 with his daily mantra” I Have Big Love.”

I so enjoy seeing how happy  he was through all of this ( of course, once we changed his diet). His autism diagnosis taught us so  much, and we are grateful that he is so much healthier and happier now.
