  1. Hi everyone, We have been waitlisted for a play therapy place, so Im trying to find some good books to help improve DDs (4yo, autism dx) play skills in the meantime. She is not very verbal. Any tips would be helpful. Also, Ive searched around amazon for some good books on play skills and found some- could you please let me know if any of these are useful. Theres quite a few! Thanks for reading http://www.amazon.com/Teaching-Playskills-Children-Autistic-Spectrum/dp/0966526635/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2BHNXY42CS0F2&coliid=I9IVHZO5MYN4M http://www.amazon.com/
  2. Not sure if this is the best place to put this. I am looking for a program for my special-needs 4 yr old to do when my older son needs one-on-one schooling time. My 4 yr old isn't reading, but he recognizes and knows the sounds of all the letters. He also does pretty well with numbers and is very good with computers/electronics. We have a regular pc and a kindle fire. I haven't had much success finding educational programs for the kindle, and would prefer one for the pc, anyway, so he doesn't get distracted by other apps on the kindle. We have done starfall but he gets bored with it now si
  3. Hi, My 4 year old has autism. Ive seen recommendations on this site that seem to suggest that NeuroNet can be interchangeable with Interactive Metronome. DD has issues with motor planning and imitation. Since we do not have qualified practitioners of IM or NeuroNet close by, Im curious, is NeuroNet (which parents can learn up on after a 1 month training program) as effective as IM? Does it help with motor planning issues? thank you!
  4. With 1 in 88 kids in America being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, I have to wonder what’s going to happen in the future when these kids grow up and outlive their parents. I’m curious about what other people across the county think about this issue. What are other people hoping for the future? My hope would be that we start building multi-level care facilities where there would be a super-attractive independent living option. An adult with ASD could have his/her own apartment, but perhaps get help with driving, laundry, etc. I wrote a column in support of this idea, in ou
  5. Hello! Im brand new to this site- and Ive read a couple of very useful threads on here already. So, Im bursting to ask all the questions that I have. I hope someone can help. Im the mother of a 4yo girl on the autism spectrum. Though she can verbalize for her basic needs by pointing and ocasional sentences starting with "I want" , teaching her new concepts take a lot of time. From what I can tell, she has significant issues with auditory processing. For example, Ive been trying to teach her colors for the past 4 months now, but it hasnt internalized much. She doesnt seem to understand
  6. I'm so confused. My son has Autism PDD. He is AWESOME! Very social and approriate. Things I've worked very hard to make happen. We start our 9th grade year Tues and I really want him to have a diploma when he graduates. My dilema... He is not learning at a 9th grade level. He hates certain subjects and I can not see teaching him English 9. He just doesnt get English. How do I get around this if 3 years of English is required for H.S. We have used Accellerated Christian Education and he seems to like that style of learning. Any suggestions would help. If you've been in this
  7. It's my first time ever homeschooling and i need help finding the right curriculum. I have a 5yr old son with Autism who is due to start kindergarten in August. *Right now he gets ABA, Speech, Physical & Occupational therapies. He is able to imitate words/actions, count to 15 & knows his letters. He can also sort & match items. He absolutely loves the Ipad too. He just doesn't initiate verbal interaction & is non conversational. He also doesn't understand the concept of yes & no. We're hoping to incorporate the curriculum as part of his ABA. What would I need to do/buy? Pl
  8. When it rains, it pours. My Mom is depressed, my CFS is acting up big time, and my dd just got a diagnosis of Anxiety, ADD, and being Autism Spectrum. We have prescriptions for two new pills for her, OT and speech therapy (even though the child TALKS just fine, they think it will help her express herself better). Out has gone the diagnosis of ODD. Mama wants a giant Mojito after this no good, very bad day. Too bad I'm a teetotaler. And broke. LOL! So the advice I need is about the Autism Spectrum stuff. I've half paid attention over the past decade to all Spectrum talk, mostly so I
  9. Does anyone here have a daughter who has been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome? I have been doing some reading lately and am convinced that underneath all of my dd's other issues (Bipolar, ADHD, GAD) she is probably Asperger's. I don't know that there's any good reason to get the label, except that it might help her identify with others like her (we know NONE) and it might help our family understand her better (Autism Spectrum Disorders seem more culturally acceptable than mental illness). Thoughts??
  10. I read the crazy stroller lady thread, then out of curiosity read much of the crazy dinner guest thread. The last part, where one poster states why she thinks crazy dinner guest may have Asperger's, reminded me SO MUCH of my brother, "J". He is now in his mid 50's and has lived with my parents since 1996. Mom is now deceased but he still lives with our dad. Even before that, Mom supported him financially. After he had been "going to college" for at least ten years, the joke was that he was the professional student. He went off and on for fifteen years and has three degrees, two in scie
  11. Hi, I'm new. :001_smile: I was wondering if anyone could give me an opinion on this. Our youngest son is 3 (well, he'll be 3 on Sunday). Five months ago, we took him to a developmental pediatrician because he was nonverbal. The "assessment" literally took all of five minutes. She gave him some toys and then, once he was playing with a car, tried to call him over to her to look at a book. He ignored her. She said he was showing signs of autism. Our regular pediatrician doesn't see it. She thinks he may have a communicative disorder of some kind. We began twice-weekly speech ther
  12. i just need to get this all out and i dont have anywhere or anyone to talk to so here we go. my son will be 3 in 2 months. we always thought something was off with him, and he's non verbal. we had him evaluated for ST. yeah they suggested we get him evaluated for ABA, and get him seen by a developmental ped. for a assesment. so basically we have found so far he has no receptive language at all. i thought he was understanding but he doesn't. he knows his name. he doesn't even understand mama and dada. he use to say 4 words but regressed this past year to no words just grunting and pointing
  13. It is so hard to parent when I hate having to communicate. ugh.
  14. I'd love some advice for a relaxed K year for my DD. Specifically, I'm looking at Oak Meadow but I'd welcome any suggestions. Right now, I love our days filled with reading, playing and nature exploration and I want that to continue. I would also like to add a rhythm of fun but more intentional school-time to our days next year. I would love to find something that has a schedule, an artistic and nature focus and holds the hand of the seriously creatively challenged parent. Here's part of my dilemma. My DD has high-functioning autism and is hyperlexic. Lots of the K curriculums out there
  15. because they make him aggressive. I had pulled them (and some of his favorite foods) from his diet - but we have FINALLY gotten an appointment with the child dev center. would it be wrong of me to feed him some of his favorite foods, that just so happen to also make him aggressive? or take away his supplements that calm him and help him focus? it would be for three weeks while he's testing. I figure if I can live with it, and not worry too much about how much school we get done during those three weeks, maybe he will actually get deficient areas identified. I called, left a message and re
  16. First of all, thanks for the recommendations here for "Temple Grandin"! I put it in our Amazon cart when we first heard about it, but we have been waiting for the price to come down from a nosebleed level before purchasing. We got it this week and watched it as a family last night. What an awesome woman and an awesome movie! Immediately after the movie ended DS13 asked, in front of his siblings, "Do you think I might be autistic?" Our reply: "Yes, we think you have a very mild form of autism." Although we have long thought that DS13 was on the far end of the autism spectrum, we hav
  17. I think we are finally convinced that our 5-yr. old son may be on the autism spectrum. We have not gone for a diagnosis or anything yet but I'm scared they will tell me I need to enroll him in FT public school for therapy. I've been committed to homeschooling since he was 18 months old. We just formally started this year and he is doing fine at home. Following the Well-Trained Mind recommendations, he has learned reading and writing. If he needs therapy, of course free is wonderful but obviously there are numerous drawbacks to the PS system and that's why we don't want our kids there.
  18. Good morning! I am new to this forum and really hope that somebody might be able to help. I am the parent of a 12 year old boy with Autism. We have three years worth of Woodcock Johnson III data that show our son's level of performance as decreasing drastically. His overall abilities seem to be increasing. The administrators of the test tell us that his scores will decrease as he gets older and that the gap will continue to grow. HELP! How does a child that seems to be making progress lose grade level equivalency? This is devastating to us and we cannot understand if this is true or another sn
  19. I have been a big fan of The Well Trained Mind for a long time, but could never implement it with my first child who has ODD (oppositional defiance disorder, not to mention ADHD, dysgraphia, dyslexia, visual processing issues, auditory processing issues, blah blah blah you know the drill), our family therapist said I would be crazy to attempt it with him. My second son has a formal diagnosis of Autism and verbal apraxia. Currently he is in a private school with other 4 year olds receiving speech and language and OT. He is doing well there but drop off is horrible, the screaming for me just
  20. My son is in 8th grade and has Asperger’s, dysgraphia, dyslexia, and a lot of anxiety. We’ve only homeschooled for a couple years, and I’m still trying to get him caught up from his days in public schools. Being at home is so much better for him, but he is not motivated at all. I have to sit by him and help him through everything, which is draining at times. He’s very bright, but has difficulty in all subjects. Next year he will be technically in 9th grade although academically way below that. I heard that I need to make sure he earns credit for high school work so that he can go
  21. The Boy Scout troop that we are with has a scout with Asperger's. We as leaders are trying to work out a good balance for him as a scout that treats him where he is, but also helps him to develop scouting skills. Most of the adults in the troop don't have much experience with kids outside the main stream and are finding this scout to be a bit of a puzzle. We are working with his parents to try to figure out triggers and accomodations so that we aren't frustrating him, other scouts or the leaders unnecesarily (ie, by asking him to do things that are beyond him or in ways that confuse him)
  22. This came my way via FB & Twitter this morning ~ it happened in the Halifax area (NS) on one of their transit buses... Autistic child kicked of Metro Transit bus :mad: copy of blog entry below, in case link goes kaput for whatever reason: I left a comment ~ I think I'm number 10, blogger ID is Molytail.. Check out the blogger's "about me" page ~ I think the driver sure picked the wrong kid to kick off his bus... Dad's a neurodiversity activist. ;)
  23. Some of you know that I did some lobbing for Can, Cure Autism Now, in the mid to late 90s. JFS in IL's husband and I were on the board of CAN in IL. Can had a bill they want to get through congress that would help establish centers of excellence for the field of Autism similar to the the one for Alzheimer's and Learning Disabilities. These types of centers is where folks could get dx, treatment, and where medical research would be done. It just so happened that Speaker Hastert was my congressman and that some one in my church was a close personal friend to Hastert as well as being a back
  24. I want a simple social skills curriculum that would be an open and go. Mom reads and we discuss and possibly some simple role play. Short and to the point. I don't have much time in our day and not much would hold his attention for more than 10 minutes anyway. :001_smile: Ds7 has severe ADHD and ASD. I would like to do this during our 15 minute morning meeting where we discuss the plan for the day. Thanks!
