Does Anyone Know Of ANY Organization Or Program That Will Assist With Getting A Grant For A Single Mother Of A Son With Autism.

Does Anyone Know Of ANY Organization Or Program That Will Assist With Getting A Grant For A Single Mother Of A Son With Autism.

I am a single mother of a 5 year old Autistic son. He has lived in and out of hospitals his entire life due to extensive medical conditions as well. He does receive SSI. It's impossible to hold a full time job til now. I finally have him stable. I have lost my car, my home, multiple jobs and can't got back to finish school until I get these necessities. If anyone can offer ideas, please I beg you, let me know.

Thank you in advance for any and all input,
Sincerely,
Bethany

What To Do When Child Isn't Meeting Any IEP Goals By The End Of The School Year?

What To Do When Child Isn't Meeting Any IEP Goals By The End Of The School Year?

In preparation for our IEP meeting to set up next years plan I reviewed my son's IEP and progress notes. At the beginning of March, he is nowhere near meeting any of his goals, in fact a couple of the goals he regressed or showed no progress after the first 4 week grading period. I've had a couple of meetings with the team regarding his behavior issues and them "setting him up for failure" in certain situations. We had the SSD psychiatrist do a consultation in March giving his recommendations… read more

ABA Recommendation

ABA Recommendation

My son is 20 months old and was diagnosed last month with autism and spd. I have him in OT, ST and PT but want to start aba as soon as possible. I just have no idea where to take him. I have an appt set up for an eval with behavioral innovations this Friday but the idea of leaving him there scares me and I didn't get a good feeling from them on the phone. I would love to have someone come to our house but I don't know where to find people that do that. Does anyone have any aba recommendations or… read more

Does My Child Need To Be Re-evaluated?

Does My Child Need To Be Re-evaluated?

My son was diagnosed at 22 months old in 2008. He is now 7. I'm wondering if there is a need to be re-evaluated or if his diagnosis will ever change. I know my son still has autism, I just wonder if where he is on the spectrum may have changed over time.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

I absolutely agree with everyone who suggested getting a neuropsyche reevaluation. We had one last year for our 6-year-old - the first one since her original diagnosis at 26 months - and got tons of… read more

Is A School Required To Get A Substitute Teacher To Provide Relief For The Gen. Ed. Teacher To Participate In IEP Meeting?

Is A School Required To Get A Substitute Teacher To Provide Relief For The Gen. Ed. Teacher To Participate In IEP Meeting?

My son's IEP meeting is coming up and we are trying coordinate the date and time with everyone. The SSD teacher gave us two available dates, one of which the Gen. Ed. teacher would not be able to attend unless the principal is able to find another teacher within the school to cover her class for 30 minutes so she could attend for a little while. I need to research some but wanted to find out if anyone had personal experience with this. Is the school required to provide a substitute for the… read more

The only time the teacher is "available" is at 9 am during her plan time or whatever they call it. 9 am isn't a good time for us on any day so I've asked for them to make arrangements since they have… read more

Are Any Other Families Discouraged By The Amount Of Wait Time To Initially See A Psychiatrist Or Specialist?

Are Any Other Families Discouraged By The Amount Of Wait Time To Initially See A Psychiatrist Or Specialist?

We live in St. Louis, MO. My son has a diagnosis of autism and recently was diagnosed with ADD as well. We are having a lot of problems with behavior consisting of aggression towards others, self injury, yelling, refusal, etc. After butting heads with the IEP team at his school they had him evaluated by the SSD psychiatrist. He recommended we take him to a psychiatrist who could help with medical intervention as well as monitor the ongoing treatment plan once implemented. After calling multiple… read more

Any Other Parents Try Vyvanse With Their Child That Has Autism And ADD/ADHD?

Any Other Parents Try Vyvanse With Their Child That Has Autism And ADD/ADHD?

My 7 yr old son has autism and we have noticed an increase in issues with attentiveness and focus in school and at home. He has always had problems with this however I feel we have made excuses until now due to him being so young. Now that his responsibilities at home and school are increasing it is becoming a problem. It could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes for him to get dressed or use the bathroom unless you are right there reminding him what he is supposed to be doing. He has the… read more

College Grievance Process

College Grievance Process

My high functioning Aspergers son is 24 years old and a senior at a 4 year college, majoring in Communications. He aspires to work with Transmedia. Other than schedule reminders and dealing with over stimulation during discussions of controversial topics, his biggest problem in college is other people "trolling" him. During the first day of class on 8/26/13, a student stepped out of class and called the police claiming that my son's hand flapping resembled a gun holding gesture and that he… read more

Problems With Putting Too Much Food Into Mouth?

Problems With Putting Too Much Food Into Mouth?

Does anyone else have a problem with their kids putting too much food in their mouth at once? Little Man will literally put almost an entire half sandwich in his mouth at once and then try to chew it up. Is this an autism/sensory thing? That possibility just occured to me today but I don't know if there's actually a connection there. Anyone else have experience with this?
