Heidi Scheer
MWI International Ambassador 2016/17
From the "Great Lakes State” Michigan, MWI International Ambassador Program


As a national spokesperson and advocate for autism, Heidi has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. sharing her story of hope with thousands of families, physicians, and educators. Heidi is the mother of three children, one of them being affected by autism. Within the first hours of hearing her son’s diagnosis she began her fight to beat this “incurable”, (so the doctors said), disorder that had taken over her little boy. Heidi immediately started her son on a gluten free/casein free diet and saw remarkable progress with her son! After six years of biomedical interventions and numerous therapies, and homeopathy, her son is near recovery!

Heidi is a regular guest on radio, TV, and news shows including national coverage on Fox. She has spoken at rallies on the capitol steps for autism insurance legislation and has lobbied U.S. Senators on behalf of thousands of families affected by autism. She was also shared testimony with the National Institute of Health’s Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee. In 2006 Heidi met with Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and was instrumental in declaring April 5th as “Autism Intervention Day” -- receiving a proclamation for her work. She and her husband Doug are actively involved in Michigan’s autism community and have raised funds for The Autism Society of America local chapters, The Judson Center, and numerous organizations that have helped families afflicted by autism. Heidi has co-chaired two international autism conferences and also co-wrote and directed a film about her son’s journey through the autism spectrum. Her film has been inspiring families throughout the world since 2008 and is her most cherished project thus far.

As co-owner of Asssemblyshows.com, Heidi performs educational school shows for elementary school children throughout the Midwest on subjects such as conflict resolution, anti-bullying, and diversity. Heidi and Doug currently conduct seminars for children’s performers on how to include children with autism in their live shows. They’ve co-authored magazine articles on this topic, receiving worldwide attention.

Heidi is honored to be one of five Autism Hope Alliance Regional Educators for The Autism Hope Alliance as well an Advisory Committee Member and Corporate Trainer for Autism Approved.
