AUTISM IS TREATABLE - RECOVERY
T (TOGETHER) I (IN) A (AUTISM).
T.I.A Was founded by Shauna Layton, the
mother of a child with Autism. We believe that Autism is a medical illness resulting from countless environmental
toxic exposures and the susceptibility of our genetic vulnerabilities, resulting in neurological / developmental damage that
strikes the normal development of the brain in areas of cognition, social interaction and communication skills. Not only are
there different labels for Autism, but the same label does make each child or adult identical in behavior, each person
is affected differently and to varying degrees. Every 1 in 91 children born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with Autism
in some form, just 10 years ago the number was 1 in 10,000. It is estimated 1 million in the U.S. have this disorder. Note:
this does NOT include: PDD, Asperger's and other spectrum disorders. A new case of Autism is diagnosed nearly every 21 minutes. 68
children a day - 7 days a week - that's 3 children every hour, 4:1 ratio of boys to girls, 1 in 58 boys . There are 24,000
new cases diagnosed in the U.S. per year. Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S. today and the
numbers make it the third most common developmental disorder, this makes this illness more than childhood cancers, Down’s
Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy – put together. There has been no study that has been directly linked a pure genetics basis
for autism. Fastest growing genetic disorders are approximately 1% per 100 years, autism is much greater. The claims of a
purely genetic disorder hold no truth. Autism affects other body organ systems besides the brain. Scientists suspect that
an increasing amount of environmental triggers coupled with genetic vulnerability could explain the dramatic increases in
the rates of ASD around the world. We believe these neurological disorders ("NDs") are simply environmental illnesses
caused by an overload of heavy metals, bacteria, and live viruses. We all have our own genetic vulnerabilities, our own toxic
exposure's, that's what differentiates one person from another. Our own toxic footprint and our own toxic tipping point. Autism IS
treatable; children ARE recovering. Recovery means any kind of improvement. Proper treatment of our children, known as
"biomedical intervention", is leading to recovery for thousands. There is no known, proven "cure" for
autism or medical detection treatment. Studies have shown that environmental toxins like pesticides and mercury cause autism.
It also appears that some children are born with a higher susceptibility to autism. Researchers are investigating problems
during pregnancy or delivery, a possible link to vaccinations, as well as environmental factors such as viral infections and
exposure to environmental chemicals. The cause of this epidemic of NDs is extremely controversial. If you look at the tripling
of vaccines given to children in the last 15 years (with unstudied ingredients like mercury, aluminum and live viruses); growing
evidence also suggests that maternal toxic load and prenatal vaccines, heavy metals like mercury in our air, toxic ingredients
in our water, pesticides; and the overuse of antibiotics are also a factor. Example: A research study by the University of
Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio found a 61% increase in the autism rate for every 1,000 pounds of mercury released
into the environment from coal burning power stations. We
are among many organization's that support research on causative factors and treatment approaches for NDs, not just genetics.
In 1983, the Centers for Disease Control recommended a total of 10 vaccines for our children. In 2008, the CDC recommends
36, an increase of 260%. No studies have ever been done to compare neurological disorder rates of unvaccinated children
to vaccinated children. Various treatments may provide some children with relative relief, current research is limited due
to lack of available funds as it receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases.
The economic impact of autism is more than $100 billion in annual costs and expected to more than double in the next decade.
In ten years the annual costs are projected at 200-400 billion. It is estimated approximately 1 million in the U.S. have this
disorder. Keep in mind these numbers are never to date as they are at a fast increase. Despite these numbers, Autism receives
less funding from health and government sources at all levels. Help is particularly hard to find – health insurance
covers less than one-third of children with autism – most have no access to insurance coverage for any treatment. Any
state programs for treatment have waiting lists that are years long – an example: there are currently 17,000 people
on the waiting list for services with a wait of up to ten years in just the state of Indiana. We believe it is vitally
important that the government takes effective action to ensure that people with autism receive the treatment that they need.
A family with a child with autism will fund 3 to 5 million dollars of services throughout the lifetime of the child.
Upon her child's diagnosis she become overwhelmed by either the lack of
resources as in organizations, therapies, support groups, foundations etc. in the mid-west region of Illiois, Indiana and
Ohio. The closest resources were found in Chicago and Indianapolis. These workshops, organizations, and therapies gave a hunger
and dire need to create something for everyone, anywhere, and on a broader spectrum. This resource
needed to be multifaceted where everyone's autism needs could not only be filled, but with ease. At the moment of T.I.A's
inception in 2007, it immediately grew at a rapid pace reaching international recognition. We can be seen in various
national/international publication's (example: People magazine) as well as major media outlets. We are known for providing
a safe haven for you pre-to-post diagnosis. You find yourself lost in a sea of papers and medical jargon. There is no
road map... We are here to hold your hand. All you have to do is come to our site and you will find direction. We are
