Autism Forum aims to provide a friendly space for people to learn about the different aspects of autism, including parenting, social issues, emotional health and biomedical treatment. Below are the experts that we invited to participate in this autism forum.
John Yeo is a father of an autistic child who is now 22 years old. He has been on a journey to help his daughter and other children with ASD find a way out of autism since the mid-1990’s.
Some of these children are now leading independent lives appropriate for their age. His own daughter has improved her ATEC score from 77 to 23 as of September 2010. She has reached what John calls the First Target of Intervention: To eliminate biological issues and behavioral issues to a point where a child can be cared for without risks and danger to caregivers.
John’s research to help his daughter continues.
Born in Singapore, Eric was an odd boy who did not know what it was like to be human. Sleepwalking through life, he had no idea what feelings and human relationships are. Stuck in his private world, he did not understand the concept of communications and could only repeat what other people asked him.
With the help of his forgiving colleagues and his exploration of emotional releasing techniques, he was able to reconnect with the human race and find meaning in his human life. A new dimension of emotions and social interaction opened up to him. Inspired to share his personal experience of autism with the world, he wrote “Mirror Mind”, “Autism & Self Improvement” and “Star Child on Earth” to unveil the mystery of autism.
