  1. Research echolalic too. Could be his conversation is based off of something he heard?? And so he’s trying to mimic the exact rythum and intonation of the original source of information he’s trying to reconvey. My son is notorious for that. Has been from about 3/4yo to now 9. It has wained drastically though since he was 6.
  2. I suppose if you took him anywhere, it’d be to a SLP. If he had a recent injury or something or you suspect an underlying medical issue causing the problem then I’d go to the doc too. So, I would study the likely suddden source of why he’s stuttering. New stress? Major change in the home? New routine? Something to consider....My son, who’s long had speech delays, then speaks pretty regularly for the last 3 plus years suddenly in the last 8 months has gotten wayyyyy more articulate about how he speaks and someone listening in may think it’s stuttering too. It’s not all the time. If that sounds like your son, I’d wait. For my son, it’s sporadic, typically done when we are in active lessons in our reading or if he is trying to have a pointed conversation. So I think it’s some type of OCD of sorts that’s found in my ASD kid. Hope this feedback helps!
  3. I’m curious if using LearningRx or something similar has been helpful for any of your children on the autism spectrum to increase processing speed, auditory processing delays, memory, etc? (I’ve done Diane Craft’s stuff in the past and it didn’t help really at all.) Thanks! Sherra ~ HSsquared
  4. Some caution is likely advisable. Just depend on what it’s for etc. I just went to an appointment with my MIL recently (has severe hearing loss) and went back myself for hearing problems this week (mine is good, just so stopped up from allergies, even on 2 pills and decongestant). These ladies actually have a Doctorate in Audiology (not a BA as the business card stated that you got). A BA is 4 years, but a doctorate entails obtaining a bachelors, masters and doctorate too. So that’s several more years of training and higher level learning. I’m sure it’s geared for them to sell hearing aids and that’s free anywhere if you decide to buy one anyway. (My MIL paid $1900 for one strong enough to help her in one ear! [emoji50]) Hope that helps! ~ HSsquared

  6. Thanks for this post!! I ordered this and sounds like it could really be a timely gem for me! Thanks again!! ~ HSsquared
  7. Episode 1 started tonight! They are talking about the whole body mind connection. I’m sure many here have dived down this rabbit hole too but I like hearing differing perspectives for nuggets of information for me and my family. Personally I’m most interested in 2 & 4 but will likely watch others as time allows too. Here is their schedule they shared: (1) The Broken Brain Epidemic / My Story (January 16 & 17) (2) Gut Brain Connection: Getting to The Root of a Broken Brain (January 18) (3) Losing Your Mind (Alzheimer’s, Dementia and MS) (January 19) (4) ADHD and Autism (January 20) (5) Depression & Anxiety (January 21) (6) Traumatic Brain Injury: Accidents, Sports and More (January 22) (7) 7 Steps to An UltraMind (Part 1) (January 23) (8) 7 Steps to An UltraMind (Part 2) (January 24) Happy learning! ~ HSsquared
  8. Thank you so very much for your great review and insights!! ~ HSsquared
  9. Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it. Seems to be the trend of some enjoying them. Others not due to unreliability. Thanks again! ~ HSsquared
  10. Well that’s quite a handy tip!! Thank you! ~ HSsquared
  11. thanks for that info! ~ HSsquared
  12. We have daily struggles to keep my son on track to complete essential core subjects. INFO: He is on the AS, SPD. I believe he has a good environment to learn in-our living room with neutral color pallet etc. Currently, he has “homework†(that’s school work he didn’t do during a lesson if it’s not done timely, even w extra allowance for handwriting) no media (iPad, TV, etc, until it’s done either, etc). He basically pulls a toy in to play with or will just sit and stare off. This is his norm. I accept and honor he needs breaks and he gets them, but it’s simply physically taking a toll on me for him to take as long as he does. He doesn’t want to grow up, doesn’t have a drive to become something, he enjoys being a kid. He has the option to use the laptop if he wants to instead of handwriting, too, but declines more often than not. ?? So, what do you do, not do, etc to make it happen without feeling like you’re both just slap worn out by days end? ~ HSsquared

  15. MUS didn’t work well for us. Some concepts introduced way too early. I suggest checking into RightStartMath as it is much more hands on, less worksheets and works to build comprehension over simply completion of tasks like MUS. Hope that helps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
