Southern California Asperger's Support Group

From Rodney and Kaoru Zeibol

We would like everyone to get the word out about our Asperger's support group. We have been meeting for almost 2 years now and will celebrate the 1 year anniversary at our present location in Irvine on 11/21. We have been averaging 30 adults and parents and around 12 children age 12 to 18 at every meeting.

We don't want to have any more situations like what happened to William Freund in Aliso Viejo. We don't want any adult or child with Asperger's to feel they are alone and have no one that understands them. Our Asperger's children are very understanding of differences as they deal with it everyday themselves.

We have adults with Asperger's regularly attending our meetings as well as parents bring children age 12 and older with them to the meetings. We have our Asperger's children sit at their own group of tables at the restaurant during the meeting.

This meeting isn't a formal social skills group for Asperger's children. We tell parents to have their child bring a book, gameboy or something to entertain themselves. If the child strikes up a conversation with other children then great. We don't push anything. We have had many children come back to meetings repeatedly with the parents saying their child didn't want to miss the meeting.

Come enjoy conversation, support and sharing with other Asperger's adults and parents with Asperger's children.

I am sharing this testimony for my daughter who suffered autism for 7 years. I am doing this, because I was her mother and caregiver  during her dark days and am very happy to share it so that others can be helped through  DR WILLIAMS HERBAL MEDICINE. It was a tough a battle for her; I was not actually the one who hard autism, but bearing the burden makes me understand what parents whose children and love with autism go through.
Lesia now 19 and was diagnosed with autism at the age of twelve, for seven years, she fought against her diagnosis. I must admit it was never easy for us as a family; we had to constantly watch her, and answer questions that we couldn’t explain. On several occasions, she asked if she will ever stop having speech delay and get well like her school mates and be the best swimmer she dreamt of becoming. She was a very happy child; and had a ‘normal’ childhood and there was no suggestion that she would later on develop autism. 
She refused to accept defeat and fought autism. She religiously kept to her medications in spite of their side effects. We all wanted a cure, so that she can chase her dream and live a normal life like every other child. But the more she takes these medications, the more her school grade drop. She couldn’t concentrate and we noticed that her memory was being severely adversely affected. Each time we went back to the hospital, her medicines were changed to a different one. Seems like, each change of drug brings about change in side effects. After about 6 years on   Abilify ,  Geodon  , and other medicines, it seemed the autism started to increase in frequency. I had to make effort to reduce her medicines with plans to eventually stop it all. We found an alternative treatment in homeopathy, which was better than her English drugs. Gradually, I reduced her drugs, and her autism were no longer as frequent as it was as when she was on conventional drugs.
With our little breakthrough with homeopathy treatment, we made further search for natural cure. Fortunately we saw testimonies about herbal medicines which cure autism. We saw a lot of claims though, contacted them and didn’t get a useful reply. Lucky for us, we finally got a reply from Doctor Williams, he directed us to his blog where we saw a lot of information about his herbal medicine . Without further delay I made a purchase for her, I switched her over to it. We had great breakthrough, that in 3 weeks, her autism reduced. After 1 months as Doctor Williams promised , all autism symptoms stopped. It was like a miracle for us. since all this days now Lesia became autism free. Her story is quite lengthy, I hope it also help someone out there.for more information you can email Dr Williams on
