Can someone tell me what to expect in his 2 day evalutation? He is having it done at Children Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

I am not sure what to expect and this makes me nervous. Do they go back alone or are the parents in the room?

Cars-2 diagnosis question

My daughter was diagnosed with autism at 21 months. The doctor's report mentions the cars-2 scale and that she is a 38. This is moderate to severe from what I see online. Since she's so young, do these numbers ever change? Very new to all of this... Thanks.

Fish oil

I have read that Dha and Epa are really good in helping develop or improve cognitive development in autistic kids. Has anyone give their child omega3 fish oils.

These studies saying give your child a combined dose of 2000-4000 m(dha & epa).

Also any other foods, drinks, supplements or activities that might help autistic child universally or your own experience of such things Thank you in advance

Speech therapy

Hi
Do you Know how is a good Speech therapy? What they should do? What makes them better therapist? I had two experiences and can't say which one was better. One was very busy, didnt recogniza my son in the second session but was very organized. Did some Puzzle and card playing, read book and asked my son about things in the book. But the other one seems to have more time but just tried to teach my son by playing with some toys ( trains, vegetables...)

I'd stick with the first one. Using the cards, reading stories then asking questions about it afterwards is a plus. When my daughter was younger her… read more

Holding urine

My son has been holding his urine for hours at a time. He only has about 3 wet diapers per day. His pediatrician didn’t seem worried when I asked her last week. But yesterday at school his teacher noticed he was holding himself and crying. He was dry from Tuesday night (around 630) till Wednesday around 2 pm. And he was visibly uncomfortable and crying, holding himself. Today has been the same situation, he was dry when he went to school at 11. Has anyone else had this experience with their child… read more

Clothes changing / ritual of running water on clothes

My daughter (non verbal) likes to change clothes a lot. I have learned to accept that. Normally that is not too big of a deal, especially if it calms her down. There is a ritual that I would like to stop / block, however. Every day she will set some things out and set them on her bed by her pillow -things that she (supposedly) wants to wear to bed that night. She will often wear those things after taking her bath in the evening. Usually at least one of… read more

Eating and vomiting

Hi guys, I’m new to this but I have a just diagnosed highly functional 2.5yr old son who is starting to be quite the picky eater. It becomes harder and harder to get him to eat and now, within the past two weeks have just started to vomit emediatly after eating. I think it has to do with either the texture of the food or how the taste surprises him. I’m not sure. Though his last check up went ok, he was just under in weight but the doctor said that is normal considering how tall he is, weight… read more

Most likely texture issues. Just let him eat what he will eat. (Some days breakfast is cake)
