Dimitri’s parents discuss his progress after his first round of stem cell treatments for autism in Panama.
Interviewer (I): Today is August 4th, 2017. Please give your name.
Dimitri (D): Dimitri
(I): Your last name?
(I): Your age?
(I): Mom, his diagnosis?
Mrs. Weaver (MOM): He was diagnosed with autism at the age of three.
(I): Ok, so this is his second stem cell treatment?
(MOM): Second stem cell treatment, yes, about a year apart.
(I): Can you describe his improvements?
(MOM): I’ve definitely seen a lot of growth since last year, mostly in language [and] comprehension. He started school last year. He’s reading. We’ve notice a lot of changes with being able to sit still and focus at school. We’re still struggling in that area but last year we weren’t sure if he was going to be able to go to kindergarten and he’s doing well. His first year, he’s now participating in sports. He just started karate, and doing really well with that. Mr. Weaver
Mr. Weaver (DAD): I think that, yeah, he’s had a lot of remarkable changes in the past year. He’s done really well with kindergarten as you’ve said.
(MOM): Overall, the teachers that saw him last year for evaluation for his IEP – and then we had an IEP meeting this May, not even a year apart. They said he looks like a different child. So they weren’t expecting the growth that he’s made this year in school.
(I): Anything else you would like to mention? (MOM): We haven’s seen any regressions or any negative, no side effects. All we’ve seen is growth. That’s why we’re here again this year. It’s been all positive for us.
(DAD): It’s been a great experience.
