A male surgeon has saved the lives of two children with autism, according to a new study.
The study is published in the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology.
The two young boys, ages 2 and 4, have been with their parents for nearly 10 years.
The doctors, Dr. Thomas M. Brown and Dr. Daniel K. Miller, performed a routine laparoscopic surgery on their son, Daniel, on July 2.
According to the Johns Hopkins University study, the surgery was successful.
It was performed on Daniel, who had a rare neurological disorder that caused him to be unable to communicate.
His parents, who are also doctors, were thrilled with the outcome.
“It was such a huge miracle, and the surgery saved his life,” his mother, Jennifer, told The Huffington Pundit.
Daniel is now on the autism spectrum.
The Johns Hopkins study notes that he is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
It is characterized by a spectrum of symptoms ranging from mild to severe.
Daniel has autism, but not in a typical way, according the study.
Daniel was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at an early age.
His family had no prior history of autism.
He was often referred to a social worker or teacher.
“Asperger syndrome can manifest itself in many different ways.
Sometimes it can appear as a lack of social communication, an inability to communicate or be socially responsive,” said the study, which was written by researchers from Johns Hopkins and Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
Daniel’s parents were unaware of the problem until they learned about the diagnosis, the study said.
Daniel, a third-grader at the Johns Johns Hopkins Hospital, was born with an abnormally small head that made him unable to speak or understand his own voice.
He would have to sit with his hands folded on his lap to hear the conversation in front of him.
His mother had to hold him as he learned how to use his hands to sit up.
“It’s one of the hardest things for a child to learn,” his father, Robert, told the New York Times.
The doctors were concerned about Daniel’s future, but they had a simple solution.
They began to work with Daniel’s social skills to help him with the autism.
“His mother and I were able to provide him with a positive and structured environment and a positive role model, which allowed him to develop the skills necessary to thrive,” Miller said in a press release.
“Our initial efforts to help Daniel develop a good social skills program were very effective.
Our son became an incredible social worker, and I am incredibly proud of the work we did for him.”
Daniel now has social skills, a better understanding of others, and a more structured social environment.
He also has a job.
“I am very happy that I was able to help my son in the beginning, but he is a very resilient individual, and we are fortunate that we were able a lot of times to save his life at that time,” Jennifer Miller said.
The Johns Hopkins team said they are excited about the success of the surgery.
“We believe that the combination of these interventions, combined with early intervention, may prevent the need for multiple surgeries to stabilize Daniel,” they said.
