Autism Website Relaunches to Offer Resources, Treatments and Hope for Families
Date:3/25/2009

discussion forums, blog, Twitter profile, Facebook page and the treatment description and ranking system. Prior to this there was no site where you could find all your treatment options and learn what has and has not worked for families affected by autism. Our message to parents is one of hope, and the newest additions to Kyle's Treehouse demonstrate how hope can spread from one user to another. Jenifer Westphal

Kyle's Treehouse has additional features planned for the site which will incorporate more user-uploaded video and a more extensive online repository of recommended sites, books, and articles.

About Kyle's Treehouse

Kyle's Treehouse, a 501 (c) 3 organization, is dedicated to empowering all people touched by autism to make effective choices. The organization and website was founded by Jenifer and Jeffrey Westphal, whose son Kyle was diagnosed with autism in 1998, The Westphals spent the next three years trying to navigate the often conflicting ways to approach and cope with the diagnosis. Their journey amounted to a self-directed investigation. In the end, they implemented the Son-Rise program for 3 1/2 years in combination with dietary, sensory and alternative therapies, which have proved to be highly effective. Today, Kyle functions as a communicative, creative and engaged teenager. The frustration the Westphals experienced on this difficult journey led them to launch www.kylestreehouse.org, a website that helps newly diagnosed families sift through the mountains of autism information, learn about a wide range of treatment options and share their questions, concerns, and experiences with other families through online community forums.
