Kristen: I mean, I hear Neubrander, Neubrander Neubrander. You Google it you’re all over the place.
Dr. James Neubrander: Yup.
Kristin: Can you give me give a background at how you first began on this journey?
Dr. James Neubrander: I was doing a special kind of allergy shot knew nothing about Autism. I didn’t want to know anything about Autism. I had a practice that was set up for normal people. And you know I, there was a special kind of allergy treatment that came from Europe that I started doing. In autism as you probably know that anytime there’s something new everybody jumps on it.
So all of a sudden out of nowhere I had 25 families with children with autism who were coming to me to be helped. I didn’t know anything about it so they come into my office I’d give them this special kind of treatment, but they sort of ruined my office. I have three fish tanks they were these long narrow ones. I have more dead fish in heaven because when I was back in the room doing something, they would be looking and climbing on my fish tank and went on the floor. So I have you know signs in fish heaven you know do not you know you know they don’t like me in fish heaven. So I just never wanted to see another kid with autism in my life. They tore up my office. They, once they ruined a 2,000 dollar piece of equipment running away; and that happened that’s what really changed my life. Because I had was to do a physical exam on this kid. He’s running around, all of a sudden. He tears off the counter this 2,000 dollar piece of equipment, totally broke.
The mothers of course embarrassed and I was nice and I said you know that’s okay and we were talking back and forth the mother. And I look you, know I got the child, I put him on the table and I looked in his eyes. And I all of a sudden knew, that he knew everything I was doing and saying, that we were doing. It literally it broke my heart. I knew then I was the person with the problem. I knew that he couldn’t get out and I my, prejudice, my bias, my looking at the mothers who were in the stores. You know, the kids running around. I was the person who was looking at them like what’s wrong with you. Can’t you know get your kid in order? That was me and then I realized I was the person with the problem. The kid broke my heart I mean, he didn’t break my heart, he changed my life. It’s a single almost all life changing event I had with this and from then on, I knew that I had just had to help him get out. Since then I’ve been able to help many of them get out. And others who don’t get out much further along.
