With 1 out of 6 kids now having a Developmental Disability, 1 out of 50 Autistic (which equates to 1 out of 29 boys) there is no time to waste while academia figures this out. The child’s brain can be “Rebooted” similar to how a stroke victim can relearn to walk or talk. Early intervention is essential.
My guest tonight is Shelley Tzorfas, author of ‘Recovering Autism, ADHD, and Special Needs’. In this book, Shelley show how much of ADHD is a systemic internal infection and what to do about it. Autism is up to 50 layers of illness that effect the skin, gut, eyes not working together. She addresses sensory overload and how it is a physical illness, not a psychiatric problem, and how to strip away each layer of discomfort. Shelley also discusses what dyslexia really is, how kids are getting misdiagnosed, why it is important to re-write the IEP or the goals for school, careers (Not grocery bagging) vacations (and scholarship) simple reading and writing exercises, free vision exercises, colleges that accept only special needs kids, and how to detox and more.
Shelley has been working on a one-to-one basis with kids in her “Specialized Tutoring/Learning Assessments” business. At the beginning the clients were a little hyper or unfocused but by the 1990’s they came in with little to no eye contact, banging their heads, unable to hold down food and generally clumsy. What she discovered was that in 1986 US passed a law that blocks people from suing vaccine maker’s in regular courts. Consequently, kids went from receiving a few vaccines to getting more than 70 containing aluminum, fetal cells, parts of rats, pigs, dogs, caterpillars, formaldehyde, mercury, ether and more. They also went from milder to more severe vaccine damage.
Shelley came to this work originally because she had undiagnosed dyslexia until age 25. She hid the fact that she could barely read or write through the beginning of college. Accidentally, she discovered that her eyes were not properly tracking together and that she had double vision, which was corrected in her 2nd year of college. A team of 3 eye specialists provided vision training and within several months, Shelley became an avid reader. She learned to write during my master’s thesis
Shelley has an MFA, had studied education at NYU and Hunter College, is a member of the International Dyslexia Association, of Cambridge Who’s Who, and of several Holistic Groups. She is the author of “Recovering Autism, ADHD, and Special Needs,” and “The Road Too Often Travelled.”
