Maria Rickert Hong is an author, speaker, and practitioner working with parents and children all over the United States. Through her own experiences as a parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, Maria discusses her journey aiding her family to wellness.

With personal stories as well as examples of her work with parents and children, she answers our pointed questions, offers guidance, and hope.

What is Sensory Processing Disorder? Why do you call it “Almost Autism”?

How did you become a health coach that helps parents recover their kids from neurodevelopmental disorders such as Sensory Processing Disorder, almost autism, autism and ADHD?

Tell us about your book “Almost Autism: Recovering Children from Sensory Processing Disorder, A Reference for Parents and Practitioners”.

Why does my child with a neurodevelopmental disorder also have allergies, asthma, constipation or diarrhea, dark circles under his eyes, acid reflux, anxiety and/or red cheeks or ears after eating?

Why don’t most parents and practitioners know that recovery is possible from these disorders?

What about genetics – isn’t Autism Speaks looking for the genetic cause of autism?

Aren’t there more kids with autism just because doctors are diagnosing it more?

How do I go about recovering my child?
