Hello, thank you for visiting AutismDEAL, my name is Dr. Jill Tschikof, I am the mother of THREE BOYS. Jaxon is 11, Carter is 7, and Owen is 3. Jaxon was diagnosed with Autism when he was 3 years old and so started my roller coaster of a journey to help him reach recovery. My husband is in the Air Force which means a lot of moving and single parenting for me. My family has been a huge support for us and I have no idea where we would be without them. I hold a Ph.D. in psychology and enjoy putting it to good use both at home and in my practice.
In my "spare time" I enjoy reading and learning about healthy living, functional medicine, organic cooking, and family traveling. However, planning a trip with three young children, two of which ,jnn follow a gluten free diet is sometimes more work than it seems it would be worth, but when we eventually get to our destination, seeing the excitement in my boys' eyes definitely makes it worth while. Take a look at my blog to learn more about biofeedback, autism, parenting young ones, traveling on a gluten free diet, and just life in general.
I hope you will follow us along our journey and hold on tight. I would love to hear from other families who are living with a child with Autism, and share things that have/haven’t worked for you! Life for us isn’t always rainbows and butterflies but we have also learned that it doesn’t have to be miserable either. So please, bookmark my page, stop by once in a while and enjoy the ride!
