I met Dr. Ron at a ukulele club meeting (really). My interest in AAA came later when I spoke to him about my son. I am currently producing a fundrasing CD for the AAA which was sponsored by a musical instrument manaufacturer. It will be ready for relase in July and should be an exciting project. The CD will include a theme song I wrote for the AAA.

My has ADHD and some aspects of Asperger's. He is attending private school and receiving HBOT through the AAA. His story is a long one, but he was a premature baby (1 lb 9 oz) and he has been on several ADHD meds. We see an improvement since starting the HBOT as do his teachers. We hope that he will eventually be able to function in school without being on any meds.
4. Do you work in any field with people on the autism spectrum disorder? If so, what do you do? How long have you been in the field? Examples would be a doctor, therapist, teacher, aide, ym/wca employee, caregiver etc... Also, if you are local to the Tampa Bay Area, would you be interested in speaking at any of our informational support group meetings in Pinellas Park?
I manage an assisted living facility, so I deal with Alzheimer's and dementia more than anything else. I'd be happy to speak if you thought I had anything to offer.
5. Are you local to the Tampa Bay Area? More specifically the Pinellas County area? If so, would you be interested in attending our twice monthly informational support group meetings in Pinellas Park?
I live in Pinellas County. My wife and I are very busy and the HBOT takes up a lot of time, so we couldn't attend a support group right now.
