I am going to be a junior this year and I need to find a new program for school. Because of my autism, math and science are very difficult subjects for me. Are there programs that were not that hard?

High Pitch Screeching And Constant Screaming

High Pitch Screeching And Constant Screaming

My 9 y.o son with ASD and SPD is screaming/screeching a lot these days. He used to have episodes from time to time before that we usually could tie to him being unwell, but of late it has turned into a constant activity at home. He can scream non stop at the top of his voice for hours, and this is very difficult and stressful. If I try to ask him to calm down, or draw any attention to the fact hat he is screaming he gets worse and will do it even more. Some days it starts as soon as he gets up… read more

Broaching The Subject

Broaching The Subject

Hi Family!

So I have a 17-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with ASD at about 2 years of age. She has been in great therapy and great schools and has made amazing progress by this stage in her development. It's funny because, since I've been around so many children on the spectrum through spending time with her in classrooms, and in other settings, I see some children outside of those situations and settings, and notice sometimes they have behaviors that appear to be indicative of ASD… read more

Probiotics

Probiotics

Hi everyone, I'm looking for another probiotic to try for my son. Can you please share with me any probiotics you use for your child that you have had good results with. My son is 13 years old. Thank you.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

i think any general pro bioitic would be ok? unless there are food allergies, pro biotics should be relatively the same across the board? but I'm no doctor.
