From a parent of 6 y.o. girl: Hi Dr. Alford, C has literally had 2 full weeks now of delightful behavior! My husband and I have been so happy because I feel like we finally get to experience the parenting joy that most parents get to have all of the time. Life is not about compulsion and uncontrollable meltdowns as part of our daily life for 2 full weeks now and I cannot express to you what that is like as a parent. C has been showing affection toward her dad and not just letting him put her to bed, but she wants him to. She hasn’t done that since she was about 2 years old and it has always broken my husband’s heart. The past two weeks have been how my sweet little C has always wanted to be and tried so hard to be, but she was possessed by this fog of autism. I am so thankful to you for helping lift that fog. What you do is truly amazing and I cannot thank you enough for helping my child recover. I cannot wait to see the progress she continues to make with you. Someday, I want to be able to take away her pacifier and hairball and her to have developed the self-control and coping skills to move on without them, but I feel like that would be too much too fast. ? As a mom, I cannot thank you enough for the joy you have brought to our family dynamic by the amazing work that you do! Thank you, thank you, thank you and see you later this week!
  – The child went from several big tantrums a day to none for a few weeks so the girl could start kindergarten with her friends at beginning of school year. 


From middle school teacher: I just wanted to let you know that your son is rocking it today in ELA. He has done his best work ever. Whatever is going on we will cross our fingers that it continues! I’m so proud of him today! I told him that I was sending a good news note home because of his hard work!
