Join the Biomedical Intervention Group of Oklahoma City/Edmond and Aaron’s Bridge ( for the world wide premiere of the documentary, “Autism Yesterday”. Oklahoma City will premiere this documentary along with over 100 other venues across the world simultaneously on Thursday, April 17th, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. The Oklahoma premiere will be shown at the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Library Downtown Location, 300 Park Avenue, Oklahoma City, 73102 (on the corner of Hudson and Park Avenue). The event will be in 46th Star Auditorium located on the 4th floor of the library. Admission is free and garage parking is available South of library at the cost of $3.00 for 2 hour parking.

The documentary was created by Generation Rescue ( and follows the lives of five families on their journey to heal their children from a disorder that had been previously deemed a life long condition. In the film you will see the progress and recovery of the children using biomedical treatment as only families living through it can tell. A parent/doctor panel discussion will follow the film. The featured doctor will be Neurodevelopmental Pediatrician, Dr. D.L. Gheen of Edmond. The parent panel will consist of experienced parents who are successfully treating their children with biomedical treatments.

David Kirby, best selling author of ‘Evidence of Harm” reviews the film and writes, “In each story, we see clear before-and-after evidence of a child’s heartbreaking descent into the silent, baffling world of autism, and then their steady, sometimes miraculous progress back towards health, happiness, communication and, yes, recovery. The film, in elegant detail, shows us exactly how far these kids have come. A trailer may be viewed at

The primary goal of this event is to present hope. Many families are not given hope and are told that “autism is not treatable”. Biomedical Intervention Group of OKC/Edmond and Aaron’s Bridge were founded by local parents that have witnessed their children become healthier with consistent biomedical treatment supervised by well-trained physicians. Their belief is based on new research that autism is a medical condition and that over time “autistic” symptoms can be reduced and sometimes alleviated with consistent biomedical treatment. Currently, Oklahoma has a shortage of physicians specializing in the biomedical treatment of this neurobiological disorder. The hope is that additional Oklahoma medical professionals will become specialized to treat more Oklahoma children with autism spectrum disorders. Currently, more children are diagnosed with autism than all types of childhood cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined (Centers for Disease Control, 2007).
