How Necessary Is The ABA Therapy?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am not completely sure about that therapy

A MyAutismTeam Member

Try to find ABA that is done at home. When your child is most comfortable. I can tell you that ABA has been a blessing to my son and our family. I highly recommend it.

I’m Looking For Some Suggestions Or Guidance…Dialysis Treatments
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, My son who is 22 has severe autism non verbal and can be combative when it comes to medical equipment and procedures. He has acute kidney failure and needs permanent dialysis. I’m here hoping someone can give me some guidance ideas or even personal experiences that’s made it work with their loved one. If anyone out there knows anything I’m desperate at this point for ideas. Because I don’t want him to have to resort to a life in sedation and nothing else.

A MyAutismTeam Member

Also the hemodialysis wouldn’t work for him because he picks at things and he would more than likely pull on it to get it out.

Books Similar To Clementine?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi! Can anyone please recommend a book similar to Clementine for my son? His SLP suggested Clementine but she thought it would be a good idea if the protagonist is a boy, either elementary school or middle school age. He is almost finished with Bat And The End Of Everything. Thanks in advance.

A MyAutismTeam Member

Hi! After I posted the question, I found this! My son is interested in the Alvin Ho series and Sam The Man And The Chicken Plan. Thanks for your suggestions. I’ll keep those in mind as well

Was Myautismteam App Discontinued? I Can Login To MAT Via Web Browsers On My IPhone But The MyAutismTeam App For My IPhone Is Not Working.
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

The app was named Autism Parents Support in the app store but was for myautismteam, created by a developer in 2012. I do not find this app any longer in the app store. Tragic if it was sunset.

Natural Supplements To Deal With Uncontrollable Laughter
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone

This is is my first time posting.
I hope everyone is doing well.
Has anyone ever dealt with uncontrollable laughter.

I have recently been struggling to get my son to stop this behavior.
He Only calms down when is on clonidine. When the medication wears off he can go on and on.

Does anyone know of any natural medication, or supplements that can help keep him calm when is not on clonidine.?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
