Sugar's daughter loves Neural Balance because it helps her but it doesn't change her. We don't see autism as a defect, but we do understand that anxiety, poor sleep, sensory overload, lack of focus, and many of the difficult attributes of autism (and PANS, MTHFR, ADHD, etc.) can make life more difficult than it needs to be.
On and off the Spectrum, life is easier when a person can deal with anxiety, get a healthy night's sleep, process sensory stimuli, and focus on the task at hand. We see the positives and the negatives of autism/being autistic so we simply want to offer support and help where needed without changing the person or turning them into a zombie.
It’s the time of year where families start solidifying plans to gather with relatives and family friends for the holidays.

In particular, holiday family gatherings can cause extra anxiety for kids who have to cope with unfamiliar situations, crowded rooms, and a break from their structured routine.
