Can anyone recommend a residential treatment place for a young adult female (18) with mental health issues, severe anxiety, depression? All of the treatment places I have found are for young women with eating disorders or alcohol/substance abuse, which is not the group she needs to be with at all. She's very young compared to her peers but very much in need of mental health services but by someone who… read more
Hello all! I was hoping some of you could share your insight. Our toddler was diagnosed with autism a year ago. We live in TX and don't have much reason to live here (we are not originally from TX, family is scattered throughout the country). I'm trying to research the top 3-4 locations/states to consider for moving for our son's long term future (i.e. therapy/education for his childhood and resources/programs for his adulthood). We want to move somewhere we… read more
Last night my 18 year old autistic non verbal son got out and we could not find him. He had crossed a very busy street and went into a liquor store and got a soda and candy. When we called the police people had already called to report someone walking in traffic. I was so terrified. How do people handle this? He will not wear an id bracelet.
@A MyAutismTeam User in the near future will there be the opportunity to sort updates by "My Team" on the mobile app so we can check in on our people? :) MAT is so great, but I find I only have the time to access it via mobile device most of the time since autism parenting keeps my hands full (and my crazy 3 year old) and there are some functions that don't work on mobile - hard to sort by "team", view posted attachments, etc. Thanks so much for all you do!
I have a 3 yr old son who's nonverbal. His speech services ended with the regional center when he turned 3. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a company here in San Diego that I can set him up with :) thanks in advance!
I am looking for music therapy services for my 4 year old son on Spectrum. He loves music and recites a couple of nursery rhymes by himself when watching on IPad. His language is emerging and would like to try Music therapy. Have heard about Kindermusik in Tustin and McKee Music therapy services in Irvine. McKee Music services fees is exorbitant. They charge $100/hr. Any one has any recommendations? I believe insurance does not cover Music therapy services.
I am a student at Florida Gulf Coast University and I am currently designing a product for my senior class project in Entrepreneurship that helps track wandering or lost children with autism. I was wondering if anyone has any stories or input that could help me with research! I am mainly in search of seeing how often your child runs away or wanders...More specifically asking:
How often they become lost?
What security is in place at home?
What products do you currently… read more
Since he turned 2 back in February, he's had 2 different teams evaluate him, and both have concluded that he shows res flags in all areas minus his motor skills. We have been having in home, behavioral therapies twice a week and are still waiting to find an at home OT, to begin sessions with. Since tomorrow is his first Neuro appt, I was wondering what the process is like? And also curious as to how long an actual diagnosis takes to be… read more
