We have finally gotten approved for Medicaid and now we are trying to build a framework for summer and beyond after getting dismissed from our previous daycare program. We are going through what we believe are the steps to getting a PASS worker to support our son.
Anyone have experience with the process or with having a support person? In what capacity did they help? Things to be aware of to avoid delays in the process?
I am looking for a lawyer who has had experience building special needs trusts to draw up a will/estate plan for my family and I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations ?
Hello everyone!!! I am a single mom whose 2 year old daughter was recently diagnosis with Autism. My question for everyone is how do you manage working and making sure your child has the proper amount of therapy needed? If your child has received less than the recommended therapy hours have you seen improvement? The center I go through recommends 32 hours a week 6 days a week. This is an issue seeing how I work and i have another school age child to deal with. I have been looking into… read more
My MIL told me her chiropractor has a 9 year old patient that is coming for therapy for his autism. She says he was having trouble with wetting his pants during the day and focus and has improved in both areas. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this? Our son has ASD and has trouble with focus.
My 7 year old... He freaks out..... he will tell us to leave him alone. He tells us he hates us. He says we don't care. He is ADHD and he takes medication for it. I think there is more wrong. We can take things from and he don't care. He still flips out on us. He will say he's going to punish us in the face. ( about two months ago he got into a fist fight at the bus stop just because the bumped him with the door). I think he has a lot of anger. He just started seeing a new counsellor… read more
My son has Autism co-morbid with ADHD. I am a single parent and I spend a lot of time advocating for my son, getting him help at school, at home, with meds, etc. I was recently having lunch with an old friend who had never met my son. My son was on his ipad playing games during our lunch. She asked questions about my son's special needs, so i gave her the history of things we tried, things that worked, didn't work. We talked about how we… read more

Looking for suggestions to help my daughter. She freaks out when it's cloudy. When it's stats raining she will screaming and cry. I can always tell when it's going to rain because she starts pacing It's got so bad at night - that we have to see with headphones on. Used to she would be okay if one of was in the bed with her. Now, she will cry and stay awake. After the headphones go on she will still whine but will finally go to sleep.
My son's psychiatrist has suggested we try this for him (age 25). Normally I am skeptical of supplements but Dr. is fantastic, so why not?
He said to only get the PharmaNac from BioAdvantex because the dosages are individually sealed to maintain the effectiveness (decreases if they are exposed to air, so a big bottle is no good). So far, so good.
They are effervescent tablets (like Alka Seltzer) and not appetizing to my son (lots of people like them apparently). I wonder if… read more
