3 year old ADHD?

3 year old can be diagnosed with ADHD? or its too early? can this be cured by medicine at 3 year age ? Please advice. We asked doctor when my daughter was 2 and half and they said its too early. She is 3 now and diagnosed with autism at mild to medium level. I feel if she can concentrate on things, she can learn things much faster. Any suggestion or opinion are welcome.

I want to learn ABA to help my child.

I'm so tired of this waiting game and all the red tape. It took months to get a diagnosis for HFA for my son. I was sure as soon as we had something official the ball would start rolling. Its not.
The Drs want to know what kind of treatment the ins will cover and the Ins wants to know exactly what treatment the Drs want. So now we are stuck in this crazy circle of more red tape. Seriously!?
How can I learn ABA??(this is most recommended from the Drs, Ins will not pay for ABA)… read more

Bus Transportation

Has anyone ever had problems with their child throwing fits on the bus? If so, how did you handle it? My child has thrown a few fits on the bus since school started. It seems to mostly be when there is fog in the mornings. He never throws a fit in the car, even in the fog. He loves car rides and riding the bus. My son is 5 and only 40 lbs but the aide is elderly and can't seem to handle the situation. I question if she received any training. Now the Director of the Transportation Dept is… read more

Need to find a pediatric dentis

HI everyone,
I'm in a desperate search of pediatric dentist that accepts straight medicaid (for now) and accepts patients with Autism. I live in Volusia County but I'm willing to drive as far as Orlando. I need help, I used to take him to Threshold Dental, been there twice and not impressed, plus last time the dental assistant really pissed me off, she didn't do anything, yet kept going on when my child was screaming his lungs out, it seems they really don't train people well or… read more

How to co-parent a child with Asperger's when you have different styles?

My husband and I are on good terms with the kids mom and grandparents who they live with, but our parenting styles are very… read more

Peeing while standing

Hi, my Son is now almost 4 y/o. He was potty trained 3 mos ago, but when he started potty training, ABA taught him to take all lower body dressing off , and done sitting on toilet.
He learned that , but he is not wanting to try in standing , or just put pants/ briefs halfway down. I understand bec he is used to taking them all off.
How can I teach him to do it standing, or train him not to take pants/ briefs all the way?
Pls share some ideas. Thanks.

How many parents have their child on a holistic protocal (chelation, supplementation, etc)? How much progress has your child made?

I'm concerned since I've moved to Texas at the high number of holistic doctors here that have jumped on the Kreb Cycle (digestive cylcle)DNA, chelated therapy for removal of "heavy metals", and high supplementation bandwagon! Parents need to know that some of these "doctors" are claiming to be certified specialist when they are not. ALL of these protocals have never been approved (and have… read more

Patient Care Assistant (PCA)

In my son's IEP meeting they suggested we put him in a camp or summer program rather than daycare this summer because he needs to be busy and socialize more. He will be four in June. They also suggested we look into getting a PCA to attend with him as he is at risk of wandering and still requires help with his basic needs such as opening his lunch box and pulling his pants down to go to the bathroom. He also has absent seizures which are not a huge issue but is a safety concern when it… read more

Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS)Approach

Hi, my son is referred to SOS for his extreme oral defensiveness to feeding, only eating 2 kinds. Do your children have this kind of treatment approach? How do the therapist do it? What advice and technique do they tell you so your kid with autism and sensory processing disorder eat new food?
