I really think that my son is becoming more aggressive physically and verbally since starting therapy.
My daughter apparently does not have a physical disability based on their criteria of a "physical disability". My child is on a spectrum that sure involves some limitations that affect her physically .
I can see I am going to be on this web site alot. This is my 3rd question already. My son is behind on speech, only says dada and sometimes byebye. He regressed at around 14 months.

My daughter began therapy and went straight to 12-15 hours of therapy a week. Could It be to much for her and that's why she is misbehaving??
Hi! My grandson has been too anxious lately and we're desperate!!! Please someboy help us!!! He's been bitting and pulling out our hair
nb, we don't know what to do to make him understand, we don't believe in physical punishments and we're aware he doesn't do it intentionally. He's non-verbal.

My son is 2 yrs old he was diagnosed with moderate autism. He is non-verbal, little eye contact, little interaction and he wanders.

My four year old son was diagnosed at three in September 2014. What is the most important thing for newly diagnosed parents to know?
My son has developed new behavior problems on top of the usual ones we have. He just turned four and has now started being rough with others not just himself.

Or am i just putting him in too much therapy adding that to the mix and he might not do well in the other therapies. I have not been able o find a place that offers it yet and someone told me they only offer it in private offices… read more
