Almost Autism: The Key to Stopping the Autism Epidemic in Its Tracks

Our Executive Director, Beth Lambert, wrote about why Epidemic Answers is making the Documenting Hope Project about documenting children’s symptom improvement from autism, ADHD, asthma, atopic dermatitis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, mood disorders and type 2 diabetes.

In short, we’re sponsoring this project because the medium of film can be powerful and effective at educating viewers in a short amount of time.

The key, as Beth writes, in having people understand that it’s not just kids with autism and their families who are affected.

“The key to stopping the autism epidemic in its tracks lies in helping them to see that their mildly affected children are really ‘almost autism’.

We are all (in our own unique way) a part of an epidemic of chronic illness, and our children . . . they are our little Canaries.”
