MY 22 MONTH OLD BABBLES BUT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING DISCERNABLE98% OF THE TIME, DOESN'T POINT TO GET WHAT HE WANTS, WAS BEHIND ON ROLLING OVER, SITTING UP AS WELL AS WALKING. HE ACTS AS IF HE DOESN'T HEAR YOU BUT THEN HE DOES RESPOND ON OTHER OCCASIONS. WHILE THE STANDARD EYE CONTACT, SOMEWHAT SOCIAL (HE IS HOME WITH NO OTHER CHILDREN) THE DR'S DON'T SEE IT AS ASD BUT I ALSO HAVE NO ANSWERS ON HIS COMMUNICATION SKILLS. HOW YOUNG IS TO YOUNG WHEN THINGS ARE LIKE THIS. I AM ABOUT TO PULL MY HAIR OUT
Has ABA or floor time therapy helped anyone? What about a social skills group? I'm in Utah and am wondering if there are any services here that anyone has found helpful. Especially if it's free or cheap :) My daughter is 4 so she's still in preschool.
We are also looking at relocating in ohio,but I don't know how to start process on looking for a good school district that will fit my son, what can I do??
One of my HFA sons seems to have abilities that come and go. One day he can tie his shoes and a few days later he forgets the process and gets frustrated. This has happened with other motor skills. He is on a GFCF diet and takes supplements and is doing well by many other accounts but these "forgotten" abilities are baffling us. We don't see a pattern related to diet.
Any opinions on which is better to take your child to and to guide parents over the long term, developmental pediatrician or pediatric neurologist?
I need help on this question:
Which one do you think is better?. Floor time or ABA therapy. My son has been receiving ABA therapy since Jan 2013. I am not happy about the progress. The ABA is happening in the daycare, it is not one-to-one therapy.It is a therapy within the daycare among the kids. I need somebody to tell me about the difference between them.
My 7-year-old still struggles with his language skills. He knows what he wants to say, but can't find the words or mixes up the words. What's a successful form of therapy to help him with this? I've heard OT, or neuro type therapies tend to help "wake up" that part of the brain. He gets a little private OT, but I'm thinking it's not enough. Any advice would be helpful.
I am thinking of having my son re-evaluated as he has come so far since his diagnosis a year and a half ago. My insurance will only cover an evaluation by a psychologist. The first time he was evaluated by a Developmental Pediatrician whom we paid out of pocket. My question is what the difference would be as far as assessment. Should I just go ahead and pay the money to have a DP re-evaluate him it is just so expensive. The average cost here in LA is $3,000.
