Does it really matter if I took a stool sample from the toilet water for the Hemoccult test? Son has autism and refuses to have anything to catch it.

Does it really matter if I took a stool sample from the toilet water for the Hemoccult test? Son has autism and refuses to have anything to catch it.

It would be better: to get it directly, especially if there is a trace of blood from skin or urine that's in the water. Did you try putting foil or plastic wrap between the seat and the rest of the toilet? Another way to do it is to take some of the stool from the toilet tissue you wipe him with (if you are wiping him). ...Read more

Why is my autistic 5 year old son (non-verbal), all of a sudden speaking, interacting and following simple commands? He has a cold, low grade fever.

Why is my autistic 5 year old son (non-verbal), all of a sudden speaking, interacting and following simple commands? He has a cold, low grade fever.

Multiple reasons: The best reason would be a developmental leap in functioning. That would be great, and you could keep doing what you're doing from a behavioral standpoint. Occasionally an alteration like casein removal can cause temporary advancement, but that disappears after a few months. This may hint at a metabolic issue if illness helps in advancement. Make sure you've seen a geneticist and metabolic expert. ...Read more

How can I explain my autistic son's verbal limitations?

Think audience: Think about to whom it is you are trying to explain and fit the explanation to them and the situation. For example, many kids don't understand that autistic youngsters might not get "I don't like that" (too abstract and emotion based) but will understand "Give back the ball." It takes some time and work but a lot of people will welcome understanding how they can talk effectively with your child. ...Read more

My son is 5 years old, verbal child on the autistic spectrum. I am having trouble making him mind me. Any disciplining tips?

Autism: with high functioning autism, you need to establish good eye contact with your child. Try to stay consistent on dealing with the same behavior the same way everytime. Use flash cards with colors and commands and set incentive to get him to do what you want. ...Read more

Why does my 9y/o girl w/severe autism eat her feces? Aggressive, non-verbal but sweet/affectionate. She digs in pants. SIB/tantrums/sensory/no MR/meds

Why does my 9y/o girl w/severe autism eat her feces? Aggressive, non-verbal but sweet/affectionate. She digs in pants. SIB/tantrums/sensory/no MR/meds

Bizzarre behavior: This may be a self soothing mechanism like rocking, other consoling mechanisms. Her severe autism leaves her without the normal social negative reinforcement of neurotypcal kids, meaning, she doesn't have the social awareness to remind her to stop the behavior. You may have some degree of success with social skills training with a therapist. Never spank her. Positive reinforcement works best! ...Read more

Son with autism woke up with red cheeks and they are hot. He does not have a fever. What could this be? Cheeks have been a little red and splotchy for a couple of days now. He is somewhat non-verbal, so not able to tell me if he is feeling uncomfortabl

There : There is a possibility that he could have fifths disease - a common, relatively harmless viral infection - most often seen in kids and characterized by red cheeks followed by a lacy rash on the arms, legs and body. Some people will also have fever for a day or two. It typically resolves on its own without treatment. The only time we really worry about this virus is if it infects someone who is pregnant or someone with a chronic blood disease such as sickle cell anemia. I attached a website with more information about fifths disease. If you do not think this is what he has, if he has a chronic blood disease or has spent time with a pregnant woman while ill, or if he is acting sick at all, give his doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Do autistic traits increase with age, or do you have them all by the time you are in grade school?

Do autistic traits increase with age, or do you have them all by the time you are in grade school?

Depends: Autism to me is metabolic and dietary. Undiagnosed food allergens, poor detoxification by liver with build up of environmental toxins and heavy metals and poorly functioning metabolic pathways are the culprits and need to be evaluated and treated. Go to a4m.Com and use doctor locator to find a local doc that can help you with specialized testing. Read dr. Bocks' healing the new childhood epidemics. ...Read more
