This is Autism (by Lief O'Neill age 10)

Written by Lief O'Neill

This was written by Lief O'Neill, a ten year old autistic boy who types to communicate.  Lief recently became one of the first, non-speaking autistic people to receive a heart transplant. Receiving cutting edge life-saving medicine is the ultimate affirmation that an autistic life is worth living, worth saving and that our son is fully human and deserving of life and respect.  He fought hard to save his own life and we are proud of him.  He is a self-advocate from his first typed sentences and he was very happy to participate in this flashblog.

This is what he had to say today.
"Autism is actual many different ways of being.  Some people think it is a disease but it is a way of being. We are learning how we are special.  Autistic kids are good. Autistic kids are smart and can get transplants. See me as smart."

    my son have been a patient of autism . I had tried a lot of anti viral med prescribed to me by doctors over how many years now but I could not see any improvements in my son symptoms. One day while going through the internet , i got to know about this great Herbal Dr who uses his herbal remedies in curing people from autism,quickly i contacted him and he prepared a herbal medication for my son which i received and he used it as instructed by dr williams. After few weeks the improvement were very visible. the speech delay and the poor eye contact stopped, I would recommend this to all my friends,families,around the globe suffering from can contact him through his email on advice and for his product THANKS TO YOU ONCE AGAIN DR WILLIAMS

  9. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from autism, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered autism in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have difficulty with communication, , and he always complain of poor eye contact . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to autism . I never imagined autism has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.autism has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
