World According to Matt

Liz Becker is an pioneer.  Her son Matt was diagnosed with Autism before there was a Google University.  The youngest of her four boys, Matt, was different, but that didn't mean she loved him any less.  When doctors told Liz that she should give Matt up for the good of the rest of her children she refused to listen.  Instead she went home and went to work.  Tune in to this week's Everyday Autism Miracles to hear about Matt and Liz's journey through Autism.  Visit for more information on Liz, Matt and Autism

  1. Anonymous father in Oregon says: I am a father of three teenagers and my youngest is autistic. I worry for him in these teenage years. How did Matt respond when his older brothers started dating? And how did the girls respond to him?

  2. Name says: Great question. I'm curious to know how his brothers' first long-term relationships affected him. How did he respond to having a new person around?

  3. Liz Becker says: Meeting new people always made hi a bit anxious. He would go to his room and hide. I was very lucky in that my other children made it a point to introduce their date to Matt and their dates were always very respectful of Matt and were gentle in their greetings and kept their questions simple. It really helps if the siblings are understanding and protective of their brother.

The Autism Research Institute


Each year the Autism Research Institute holds two large conventions.  One on the east coast in the spring and the other on the west coast in the fall.  This weekend doctors, practitioners and parents will convene in Garden Grove, California for four days to discuss the medical advances in the field of Autism in recent months.  Denise Fulton is a parent and the director for this year's west coast convention.  Denise joins us this week on Everyday Autism Miracles to talk about her family's journey through Autism and why this year's convention may be important to your family's journey.  Join us for questions or comments by dialing 877.864.4869.

Stem Cells and Autism: The Hunt for a Cure

Recently the FDA approved a new study that would allow researchers to inject children with stem cells from their own stored cord blood for the purpose of finding..... a cure for Autism.  Yes...a cure.  Seem far-fetched?  A little too good to be true?  Maybe...maybe not.  The decision to do the study came about after a child with cerebral palsy was injected with stem cells from their own cord blood and made a miraculous recovery.  Could it prove the same results with Autism? Researchers have suggested we could know very soon.  But is this the first time anyone has tried stem cells for Autism?  No.  Apparently a small group of parents have been quietly going about this for some time.  Tabitha is one of those parents.

Earlier this year, in an effort to "leave no stone unturned", Tabitha and her husband accessed some of their child's cord blood and stem cells given to their daughter via IV.  Tabitha will join us today on Everyday Autism Miracles to tell us about their decision, the process, her daughter's status and why the question of stem cells for Autism may not seem like a wish and a prayer. Have questions?  Call 877.864.4869.

We're less than two months away from an election that will decide who our leaders will be for the next 4 years.  A lot has been said about a great many topics, but not much has been said about Autism.  How can that be?  Autism parents are a force to be reckoned with, we are a special interest group and WE VOTE.  It's time for our politicians to take note!  Wondering how we can make that happen?  Shelley Hendrix from Autism Votes will join us this week on Everyday Autism Miracles to give us ideas about how to be heard!

Shelley is an awesome warrior mom who has been instrumental in ensuring that insurance reform has reached 31 of the 50 states.  Shelley is also frequent blog contributor to the Huffington Post.
