    Didn’t recognize the name Robert Tinnell until I saw The Chelation Kid mentioned.

    1 in 150 children are diagnosed with autism. It is an epidemic in this country and is becoming epidemic in many other countries. The Chelation Kid, in comic strip form, tells of one family’s life with autism and all the trials they have been through.

    I am not one to claim that autism can be cured, but I will claim that there is help for many autism families. If you know of any family that has an autistic child, you should sent them to The Chelation Kid.

    (Yes, I realize this takes away from the promotion of Demons of Sherwood. Congrats on the new comic, guys!)

      Well, there is a way to get better, but it's not very reliable and I wouldn't recommend it. I had Aspergers (according to my neurologist) and then I had a big medication-caused stroke and coma. When my brain rewired, no more autism spectrum.(My brother stuttered in English his entire life until a few years ago when he tripped and hit his head on a stepping stone and got a metal plate in his head. No more stuttering. Not recommended, either.)
