I would like to know if any of you have tried Cytoflora and if you have, what kind of results did you see in your child?

I would like to know if any of you have tried Cytoflora and if you have, what kind of results did you see in your child?

I've been reading mostly great things about this probiotic and some parents have seen impressive gains in their child's speech and socialization. Here's the link to the product website, http://www.bioray.com/cytoflora/ If you type in "cytoflora and autism" in a search engine, you'll see tons of articles and blogs on the subject.

The Autism talk

The Autism talk

My 7 year old son is very high functioning. Hes in a general ed classroom and is very social. Hes had a therapist come to his School Since he was 2 so its normal to him.

Discipline

Discipline

Being new to this special world, I'm told as a mom that I'm too soft when it comes to discipline. Mind you, my son is 3 and non verbal, when he stands on a chair or climbs on top of the table or throws something, my husband thinks yelling at him and smacking his butt is a better way. Which I don't believe in. I get down to my son's level and explain why it's wrong. But when he does it his way, my son doesn't want anything to do with him. I'm I being to soft? I was hit as a child and hated my parent… read more

Does anyone have any tips for teaching a 2 year old how to make the 'f' sound?

Does anyone have any tips for teaching a 2 year old how to make the 'f' sound?

My 2 year old sister, Elizabeth, was recently diagnosed with ASD. She is getting so much better at correctly pronouncing the alphabet and individual letter sounds, but the letter 'f' is the one she struggles to say the most.

For example, when counting to five, she says: "One, two, ree, bore, bive." The 'b' sound usually replaces the 'f' sound in words that start with 'f,' and I'm trying to come up with ways to continually expose her to… read more

Parents Support

Parents Support

Where do you all draw support from (besides here). Respite care?? How do you let go of guilt over feeling like you’re enjoying things they can’t?? I’m attached to my son 24/7 & will always put his needs first but I know I have to recharge. I’ve given up on my hopes/dreams & although I’d like to find fulfillment, I just don’t see that happening & it’s hard to trudge on without some type of break here/there.

Is occupational therapy most effective in a clinical environment?

Is occupational therapy most effective in a clinical environment?

My son receives OT at home and in clinic, and his OT is recommending we change to a clinic only program for increased effectiveness. I see OT type needs (fine and gross motor skills, self-help) that can be done at home (ie teaching to cut or draw or write can be done anywhere?)...where some of the swinging, jumping, etc. is great at the gym. The thinking being pitched is that more gym time will lead to progress in the fine/gross motor skills. What… read more

How to handle potty training regression?

How to handle potty training regression?

My son several weeks ago started to independently go to the potty. After over a year of training and breaking down the steps, you name it, it was amazing to see this.

He was increasing these independent runs to the potty and we were so beyond excited. And then this past ~two weeks, he is regressed and now not even bothering going to the potty, just going on the floor This doesn’t happen in therapy sessions, because they have a plan to ask him if he wants to go or take… read more

I like Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty. It comes in loads of different colors. Some glow in the dark, others change color in your hand, etc. :)
