  1. I was hoping to hear her detail a potty training method that has proven successful for her clients. Instead, I was told about her personal medical history. As parents, we are DESPERATE for answers. We want to have someone detail the “how.” What does it look like to implement these changes in a functional, day to day way. SO disappointed with this interview.

    1. I found this presentation just excellent and informative. Her personal “health story” shows the deficiencies in our health system and the wrong doing of many doctors. Furthermore, when one has been through so many personal health issues, he may become the best advocate to help other people.

    2. Hi Kristee, You should be able to contact Alison through her website. http://www.alisonwimmer.com In addition, in the Anat Baniel interview here on The Autism Intensive, she discussed in depth how she is able to potty train and she was able to do it very quickly. The Anat Baniel Method is paradigm-shifting. If her interview is not presented on Encore day this Wednesday, you might consider purchasing the summit.

  2. The potty training is very crucial stuff. Sensitive yet determined, clear approach to the kids. Thanks also for your discussion of stimming. And, tremendously inspiring too. Thanks! ~Dr.Cliff

    P.s. Seems to me you have from early childhood, been tuned into your inner core – The Still, Soft Voice – of great kindness and of deep intuition.

  3. Ultimately, a dilemma that I’m passionate about. I have looked for data of this caliber for the previous various hours. Your internet site is greatly appreciated.

  4. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my blog thus i got here to return the choose.I am trying to to find issues to enhance my site!I guess its adequate to use a few of your ideas!!
