Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis

Some ABA is detrimental to the natural communication of some autistics. For instance forced eye contact and trying to stop soothing stimming is harmful. If the stimming isn’t hurting the child or anyone else is can be very soothing and there is no reason to stop it. People want to stop it because they think it looks odd, which isn’t fair to an autistic person. Eye contact is for other people and it overwhelms a lot of autistics, it does not help them learn. Please be very careful in… read more

How Can I Help His Transition From Bus To Home Less Difficult?

How Can I Help His Transition From Bus To Home Less Difficult?

So for the past few weeks my son has been coming home from school and the second he gets in the house all hell breaks loose. Seriously it's like Jekyll and Hyde. I got him off the bus and he was happy and I was asking him about his day. When we got inside the door, his 2 year old sister came up to him and said "hey, we're watching Frosty!" He yelled and pushed her and screamed "No, don't talk to me!!". So I took him to his room and told him to hang… read more

How Does Your Child Voice Their Dislike? Looking Higher Functioning K-3 Kids That Don't Want To Leave Home Or Go Out Much.

How Does Your Child Voice Their Dislike? Looking Higher Functioning K-3 Kids That Don't Want To Leave Home Or Go Out Much.

My daughter has a weird way of vocalizing why she prefers to be at home and never to go somewhere new. She particularly does this more if there is a surprizing change to her schedule or routine. I just got a weird take on her vocalizations from a specialist.

To me she trying to express sensory overload.

She also goes into shutdown in public places with too many people.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

I think as a parent we know more then the specialist. As special as they are they don't see your daughter 24/7. I also think some of the best doctors… read more

Rolling On The Walls...

Rolling On The Walls...

How do you transition an 11 yo from rolling his whole body on the wall. He doesn't do this all the time just when he goes down the hallway. He loves it and sometimes he doesn't because he knows he's not supposed. Once he starts you can't stop him. He'll go back and forth a few times.

He is high functioning ASD, ADHD, Sensory seeker and behavior issues.

We did OT once and it was a very upsetting experience. He has stopped rolling on the walls...I'm not sure why he was doing it. Still it stopped for now.… read more
