Houston

Hi everyone
We are having to relocate once again, and I wanted to see if anyone has had any luck with private schools in the Houston Texas area. Is there a grant or some sort of a program that helps cover private school fees? Does Medicaid cover ABA? My son is 6 years old and needs a lot of assistance. Trying to find the right fit for him.

Coping with a spouse in the spectrum?

So my husband Michael has undiagnosed Aspergers Syndrome, as well as my (diagnosed) child. His rigidities are really annoying me lately and I have been lashing out at him, even though I know he has issues. I wish I was more accepting and knew how to accommodate his needs. I really at this point just need to understand how to fix our marriage. He needs to understand how his behavior looks to others and I need to understand how he sees the world. He also has a hard time… read more

3 year old ADHD?

3 year old can be diagnosed with ADHD? or its too early? can this be cured by medicine at 3 year age ? Please advice. We asked doctor when my daughter was 2 and half and they said its too early. She is 3 now and diagnosed with autism at mild to medium level. I feel if she can concentrate on things, she can learn things much faster. Any suggestion or opinion are welcome.

Thanks

Who homeschools their child? Can you please tell me something positive about homeschooling?

I’m seriously contemplating homeschooling my 10 year old daughter- every summer my daughter has to “recover” from school. But by November we have serious regression and delays in milestones which were achieved previously. She always is bullied and isolated as well- September and October are great but I can see the sensory overload build-

I’ve never been able to get schools to listen to what she needs so it’s a full time… read more

Anyone else have a toddler that jumps in the crib constantly?

Already destroyed one crib mattress rail. He is getting older & destruction is happening quicker. The rail is 100$ each time & the crib itself was under 300$ so
I don’t intend to keep spending $$$. How much longer before the whole cribs frame has had it? He isn’t developmentally mature enough to be out of his crib & wandering free. I don’t care how many safety precautions there are it isn’t safe. Anyone faced this issue with their jumping… read more

increasing joint attention

Our 2.7 year old son has a difficult time with joint interaction/attention. He pays attention for 5-10 seconds at a time sparingly throughout the day. Yes, he's in ABA 21 hrs/wk and we've seen some increases in this, but not at the rate we would like to see it. It's hard to keep him engaged in activities and feel like we've tried/are trying everything. Just reaching out to see if others have experienced similar with their little ones and what's worked for you to increase joint… read more

What has your experience with public schools been like? Have you had to fight a school to the teeth to address your child's needs?

Bullying is such a constant in my area. How do you speak to schools without the issue being swept under the rug or getting everyone on the defensive? Is there a way to get a child into a more Autism structured environment?
