The Kids Who Beat Autism

By RUTH PADAWERJULY 31, 2014

At first, everything about L.'s baby boy seemed normal. He met every developmental milestone and delighted in every discovery. But at around 12 months, B. seemed to regress, and by age 2, he had fully retreated into his own world. He no longer made eye contact, no longer seemed to hear, no longer seemed to understand the random words he sometimes… read more

Just a thought but many autistic kids lose their autism diagnoses as they get older and learn more strategies to help with behaviors and to act neurotypical.

Tips For Handling Behavioral Issues At Home Of A Child With Mild Autism

Tips For Handling Behavioral Issues At Home Of A Child With Mild Autism

My 5 year old son was recently diagonsed with mild Autism. His opportunities are social interaction & some sensory. He's always so in his own head or acting out his favorite cartoon that he doesn't listen to us a lot of the time. Getting him to stop & focus can be hard. He's currently receiving Speech & O.T services weekly. At school is his very well behaved & the teachers have no issues with him. But, at home it's another story. He has trouble handling his emotions & will have tantrums… read more

I don't know if his special ed is anything like what my kids got, but the teachers of the main class basically built on what the speech therapist was doing with my boys. With only 6-10 kids, they… read more

Will Child Be Able To Speak With Intensive ABA Therapy?

Will Child Be Able To Speak With Intensive ABA Therapy?

My 2 yr old girl is diagnosed with autism.She regressed at 18months of age. Her development pediatration recommended to go for early intensive ABA therapy for 30 hrs a week. When I asked her about Speech and OT .She said OT is not required for this kid and speech will come with ABA. She is non verbal but babbles a lot with some meaningless words.Will they really start speaking with ABA therapy?
I was thinking ABA is only for behaviour!!

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

Honestly, a 2 yr. old child will likely not be able to handle the intensity of 30 hrs. per week of ABA. 1 to 2 hours per day of ABA is more of a realistic goal for a 2 yr. old. There is no guarantee… read more

Recess Accommodations

Recess Accommodations

Do any of you with elementary aged kids have IEP accommodations for recess? Jesse is six and is starting to get in trouble at recess. It is just too much for him - sensory overload. He is active and needs an outlet and recess is important, but not sure of any steps to take. Thanks.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

Here are some things we tried: first, the recess personnel need to be aware that he might need extra help in socializing so that they can step in when it gets "hairy"; second, our child's school SLP… read more

Are The Autistic Behaviors I Am Seeing At This Age Of 3.5 Increase Over Time Or Diminish? Peak At A Certain Age? Will The OCD Worsen?

Are The Autistic Behaviors I Am Seeing At This Age Of 3.5 Increase Over Time Or Diminish? Peak At A Certain Age? Will The OCD Worsen?

I am curious if the autistic behaviors I am seeing at this age of 3.5 are indicitive of future behaviors...did your child's symptoms progress over time? For instance, just because my son appears to suffer mild OCD and stimming right now, can/will these behaviors develop and worsen as he gets older? It it common for them to escalate as he gets older? Or peak at a certain age? Hopefully diminish? Please let me know your experience.

My son has been stimming for almost a year. It started just during care rides, but now does it several times during the day. The neurologist says that it's a response to being under and… read more
