Dear Parents:Time flies, spring is here! Many of our parents will be busy scheduling activities for the coming Spring break, while some of them will work hard on their children’s up coming IEP meetings too. CPAD understands how important the IEP process means to our parents; therefore, we, together with ELARC, OCR, TASK, and ELAFRC, will conduct a very educating workshop, namely “IEP Education Pathway – Infant to Adult”, to help parents to be their children’s best advocate. The workshop will provide parents with valuable information in areas such as early start transition, educational rights, and a discussion of the IEP process. The workshop will conclude with strategies for adult transition. For registration, please call CPAD hotline (626) 307-3837。

Besides the March’s IEP workshop, we also invite Ms. Suzanne Galindo, TASK’s advocate and also a parent to come to our April 24’s Parent Support Group meeting for more individualized support. Please reserve your time for this great opportunity.

CPAD Corner (March 2007)

2/24/2007 – CPAD Chinese New Year Party was a very warm, cozy and fun party. Everyone enjoyed the program , delicious food & wonderful program! Thanks to our sponsor Mrs. Tak Lee.

3/3/2007 – Dr. Wu’s detail information on Chinese medicine and the treatment of Autism by applying the unique acupuncture point therapeutic massage gave us a good idea of how they may work while western medicine so far has not provided a solution. Dr. Wu’s presentation also helped our parents identify that there may be an alternative treatment for our young autistic children.To encourage CPAD parents, Mr. Tony Ye donated $350 to CPAD for families with autistic children to be benefited from Dr. Wu’s Chinese medicine treatment. Mr. Ye outlined following requirement:
- The family must be a member of CPAD
- The autistic child must complete a two-month
treatment program using Chinese medicine from
Dr. Wu of Ancient Acupuncture Center
- The autistic child must be under 10 years old
- The family can receive $10 reimbursement per
treatment from this fund.

CPAD will hold a special seminar. Guest speaker is Dr. Kanyang Wu of Ancient Acupuncture Center.  Dr. Wu was vice-director level doctor in China. He has conducted over thirty-year’s clinical studies on autism and cerebral palsy using Chinese medicine.

Dr. Wu has treated 40 cases of autism and cerebral palsy. Great improvement has been demonstrated in every case. Three autism cases and two cerebral palsy cases have been fully recovered. Based on his clinical cases, Chinese medicine is very effective for treating autism. With his thirty years’ experience, Dr. Wu can bring obvious results within the first 1 to 2 months. The optimum recovery time is under age 5.  Dr. Wu’s primary treatment is his unique acupoint therapeutic massage with supplemental Chinese herbal medicine.

Chinese medicine has its own theories and practice for clinical treatment. Dr. Wu will explain to us in these areas. Dr. Wu has published dozens of articles in the last five years.
