Side Note for Autism One interview:
My first work with autistic children was in 1975 while working as a teacher’s aide in a
school for emotionally/behaviorly disturbed children. After watching a 10 year old come
out of his “autistic” state as an 18 mo old after starting chiropractic care, I was hooked.
Later, as autism was on the rise, I worked with classrooms of children labeled “autistic”
at the University of MN in 1990. Eventually, I spent the next 25 years working with
autistic children in my chiropractic practice as the number of children continued to rise at
a dramatic rate compared to the 1 in 10,000 that we had in 1975. Dynamic Body
Balancing grew out of my craniosacral practice and was an ideal adjunct to my regular
chiropractic adjusting skills.
