I would live to meet other kind who not only have special needs but who parent naturally also. I always have questions but I can't seem to find anyone who has experience :(

We have one who has special needs and two who are typically developing. I'm not sure I'm qualified to answer questions, but I can certainly sympathize. :)

My son has cystic fibrosis, asthma and a sensory disorder. My oldest daughter has severe asthma and my younger daughter is developmentally delayed.
It's hard to always natural parent when the doctors are against it.

My son has autism. He takes melatonin only to help with his sleep issues. I refuse any medication. Do Drs not realize what some of those things do? Help drug addicts come off their highs. They eat out your insides, and people become addicted.
No thanks.

I have a daughter who's 3.5 with Aspergers, and sensory processing disorder. We are all natural, no medications of any kind. I give my daughter a liquid vitamin, and a natural sleep supplement called nite lite, that has melatonin in it. No chemicals, no Rx's. I'm with a PP who said no thanks to those medications, they do not help any of the problems, just cover up some of the symptoms.

I have to medicate my son, without his meds he would be dead. The life expectancy of CF, before meds, was 4-5 years. Now it's it the 30's. to me that's worth minimal side affects.

But at the same point my brother is autistic and was never medicated and is fine, he made it relativly unharmed to his 20's.

I have 3 kids with Aspergers. We choose to parent them naturally. I have a 10 year old daughter, 3 year old son, and 20 month old daughter. My son was DX with ASD at 2.5. He has severe sleep problems. My oldest is being evaluated for autism right now. And my youngest has all of the same signs as my son... Sensory processing problems, mixed receptive expressive language disorder, & very rigid or repetitive behaviors etc. She has severe sleep problems too. My oldest sleep walks and has ADHD symptoms, OCD symptoms, and sensory processing problems. It's very interesting at our house LOL!! Autism circus =) I don't do meds except for my son. If he didn't take Klonopin he would never ever sleep. When he turned 2 he wasn't sleeping at all. Melatonin is a joke for him. We are still working on diets and are GFCF but doing GAPS soon.
