Any recommendations for a good iPad case?

My son is non-verbal and an iPad is essential for him. However, the screen gets cracked no matter what case I've bought - even an Otterbox.

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

Any good dentists in the Columbus/Dublin, Ohio area?

My son has autism and is non-verbal. I feel that seeing the dentist would require sedation as well. Thanks in advance!

B12 Shots and any advise from experience

Hello!!! My son (2yr) has recently had a total of 3 B12 shots. We were prescribed this by his Dr (not pedi) due to MTHFR, aluminum toxicity, and his speech delay. I’m hopeful for some changes but we’ve seen some increased activity, (yay :-/ ) forehead and chin pushing on things, his hands, my legs, couch etc, constantly (more than before!) but also diarrhea from it.
I was wondering if anyone else has had any positive and negative changes from the B12 and any advise,… read more

Speech issue ( miss-sequencing letters)- Any insight?

Our 8 year old daughter is non verbal, slowly getting to her first 100 or so words.
What we have noticed is that she incorrectly sequences the letters in a word.
for example:

Snow = NowS
Swing = WingS

It seems strongest with the letter S yet we have heard it with other word/letter combinations.
Has anyone had a similar situation? We are unable to understand ( with help of SLP) what is going on. Any previous experiences might just send us in the right direction...
