Well I have just returned from New Orleans where I spent the past week at a medical convention full of PCP (Family Docs), Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Sports Medicine Docs, and others; needless to say it was a large group. Of course I would speak about Aspergers/Autism/HBOT Smile whenever I could...There are few services, if any, dedicated to the Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) around the U.S. Evil or Very Mad In fact, most physicians had no real knowledge of Aspergers Question and had no idea that Hyperbaric Oxygen was an effective treatment, did not know that treatment (diet, OT, PT, ST, etc.) of the ASD had any positive effect. Mad Most felt they were too busy with 'everyday medical practice' which to me indicated they did not have any tools to help famlies with children with ASD. Rolling Eyes Now I live in the Tampa Bay region and know that services are difficult to find, even in our large metro area. When I mentioned HBOT in one of the lectures, a female physician became a bit upset, Rolling Eyes stating, "I live in a small community and it's 60 miles to a hospital with a chamber and they won't accept an Autistic child for HBOT; besides that it is too expensive for any of my patients." pale At least some of the doctors are begining to realize that there is treatment for our kids and adults even tho they do not know how to help their patients.
So what does this mean; it means we are starting to make headway yet have a long, long way to go...here is where the internet can be helpful....I think our AAA chat line has been helpful for many. I also get at least one phone call a week from someone wanting to know what to do. I just wonder how many parents and kids out there are lost or have no direction. Sad Shocked At least I was able to spread the word and made a lot of physicians aware that ASD is there and there is effective treatment. cheers Dr. Ron
