Asperger Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder Healed

Today, Christopher and Deborah McDermott are the proud parents of two normal, healthy children, but that wasn't always the case. Not long ago, their two sons, Timothy and James, were diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism respectively. Their disorders were labeled when the boys were young, and they were deemed incurable. While many suffer from these diseases and believe them to be lifelong, the McDermott's testimony will challenge those beliefs. Deborah would not accept the report, and called out to God for help. Her family's story can be seen in the video below, and it is proof that nothing is impossible with God—nothing is incurable.

I have a Grandson that is autistic.......he's a grown man now (35). We have prayed for a miracle for him to be healed but I guess God has other plans. I am happy for these daughter has suffered for so many years trying to help her son. He is in a group home now with other autistic people. This disease is so terrible......for the entire family.

Praise God! More children so desperately need to be set free from this evil. Satan is destroying our new generations of men so they can not be strong and be the head of their own families. God has set these two beatiful sons free so they can stand strong in the Lord and fight the good fight and be the men God meant them to be. God is the Almighty for sure.

Thank you for sharing your encourageing testimony more mothers and fathers need to know there is a God of Hope and Healing. I pray this message shines into the hurting and desperate hearts of the parents who need to hear it. I have shared it willing on my Facebook and pray more will come to know the awesome Power of our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN.

I just want to encourage Janice Lowe concerning your 35 yrs grandson. God does not have any other plan. His plan is to heal That is final. Order the book You have already got. from Andrew wommack. It will help you to know that you have all the authority above all things. Don't give up keep on believing. The bad thing, people give up.
All the best.

Jesus is the answer to the devil's plan to kill, steal and destroy. Thank you Andrew Wommack for sharing this testimony and for being so faithful to the Lord in your service to him. Thank you Holy Spirit for being our Comfort and for comforting those dear ones in Newtown, Ct. who are grieving the Massacre of so many beautiful children and their loved educators, and the terrible lost to the Lanza family.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful testimony of the healing power of Jesus. Recently a woman at college gave a speech on autism because her brother has had it for quite some time. I did not know how to encourage her so I didn't say anything. Since viewing this video, I believe that I can be an encouragement to people who are facing this with their family.

What a glorious testimony!! Praise Jesus and His love for us!!! Im believing for a similar miracle, my 4 yr old son was recently diagnosed with asd and i know that Jesus died for this and took it for him at the cross. I have a constant peace in my heart that he is already healed and is being maniest in this physical realm and everyday he makes tremenous progress! Glory to God!! So thankful for this inspiring testimony of how wonderful our Lord is!

God is awesome and only HE deserves he glory! How I wish everyone did what this family did and put their faith in God to work and stop accepting the lies the enemy tries to make reality. May the healing hand of God be upon his people and may we shine for our Savior so more people can accept JESUS as their Savior and we can do away with the lies of the enemy and the illness he thinks he can inflict upon us...NO JESUS has done it all and the victory is HIS!!!

What a profound testimony! I have to also give credit to these parents...they didn't simply receive a blessing and then sit back.... they came together as a family, heard God's voice in the quiet moment of desperation, heard God's helper in the voice of her mother, both Mom and Dad took effort to DO something that prior to meeting Mr. Wommack, they had thought IMPOSSIBLE! The steps of faith leading to that moment are FANTASTIC!

What an encouragement, thank you for sharing! Well Done!

Such an amazing story of hope and healing. God is great. I have been so encouraged by this story. For years i have been praying for my son who was diagnised with autism 2 years ago when he was 3. My faith has been lifted by this story and i know that if God has healed this little boy he will also heal mine. Now i am only looking forward to the day my son will be restored and normal.
Thank you for this testimony.

Praise God! I have an autistic son, and when we learned about his condition we are trained to accept and love him as he is. As the years went by instead of getting better with therapy he seemed to deteriorate especially in behavior. But Praise God when He said by His stripes we are healed it means the whole person physical, mental emotional. I started praying for my son claiming His healing by the blood of Jesus. That i dont have to accept who he was born to be mentally. Thats not God's plan at all. And ever since praying for Him everyday two years ago, I have seen a lot of changes. From a kid in 8th grade who is always in trouble every week to a 2nd yr in high school with straight A's. Praise God! Thank you for your testimony because it is confirmation to what I've been believing my son to be. The subtraction of mental disability to restoration of his mental capability according to the word of God. Thats all we need to believe, His WORD!

Wow, that made me cry. God is so good!

we are the parents of an autistic son named John, he is now 45 years old and lives in a group home, he was diagnosed at age 31/2, up to that time I had never even heard the word and had no idea what it meant. we have tried many new theories with him to no avail, hopes dashed time & time again, He lived at home with us until he was 22, our lives were always in an upheaval, he had many disturbing behaviors that just drove us to a living hell, our marriage has suffered greatly, not knowing how to cope was our undoing. He is our only son, we had 4 daughters 3 before John & 1 after. I am a born again believer in Jesue the Christ, have been since I was 42 years old I am now 76yrs. old and I realy believed after my salvation that nothing was impossible with my God, but I guess after many years without any results I too, like that other comment just thought God must have another plan, I still don't know what that could possibly be. I love my son with all my heart and would give anything to see him delivered from this hell he lives in.

I kept thinking of the scripture "Overcome evil with good". This testimony is so timely, and encourages me to move in a greater faith for many things - and not accept negative and potentially destructive situations. There is an anointing on this testimony of hope - I pray that many will receive their deliverance from unbelievable suffering. My heart goes out to those parents and others who have struggled, and I pray that no one will believe the lie that God won't do the same as He did for them. The key is when she heard God say, "I already did" (die for her boys), and surely He loves them more than she did !

I watched the testimony of James and Tim and wept profusely throughout the story. My own boy is 11 and has never been diagnosed due to, i don't know what, but he has lived in perpetual bondage and oppression. I started watching Andrew about 1 1/2 years ago and have learned alot about sacred cows, God's soverienty, believer's authority and you already have's been a wild learning experience and Andrew even prayed over my boy last year when he was in Orlando...Things have gotten worse for him but i refuse it and cancel it in Jesus Name because I know it's the devil and he's a liar and he's defeated. I know Jesus loves my boy more than i do and that my boy is already healed and delivered thru the Finished Work of Jesus and thru the power of the gospel. So i'm thankful for this story as it encourages my faith as i await the physical manifestation to occur in my own son. Thank you Andrew for being a vessel God has used to get the Truth -- the Gospel Truth--out so clearly. Continue to be blessed!

I was were diagnosed with Autism as a young child. This morning, I listend to another minister about healings and I was thinking abut healing for myself bcause I wanted to be heal and delivered from autism. Is there are any teaching resources about how to be and stay healed?

December 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMeagan

Praise the Lord for he is good all the time. Thank you Andrew for being a vessel God has used to get the Truth -- the Gospel Truth--out so clearly, to build and encourage our faith from all the healing testimonies. Continue to be blessed!

Andrew has got a lot of teaching resources (MP3s) on the topic of healing on his website. And all of them are absolutely free. I urge you to visit the Audio Teachings section and find out the ones you need. They helped me a lot when I was facing my own health challenges. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!!
