However, that is far from universal and more related to immaturity than adhd per se. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Weaning : Weaning any child from a bottle can be tricky. Add autism into the mix and it's just become 10 times harder. The problem is that she is going to have to take a cup eventually, so usually the sooner, the better. Try to remember that it is your job to offer nutritious food and it's her job to eat it. A child will not starve themselves if food is available. The most important thing is to make sure she is staying hydrated. Is she still urinating at least 3-4 times a day? If so, you are in good shape and keep offering the cup. If not, then you need to contact her doctor for another plan of action because it could be dangerous for her to become severely dehydrated. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Need? No...: It sounds like your son is in a loving environment. Children his age (and older) learn through play and connection. He doesn't "need" preschool.
