Is there any good data (rcts) on sensory processing disorder in kids without any other diagnosis (autism spectrum, dd, etc)? Thank you.

Is there any good data (rcts) on sensory processing disorder in kids without any other diagnosis (autism spectrum, dd, etc)? Thank you.

The American : Academy of pediatrics & coding organizations do not recognize sensory processing disorder as a stand-alone diagnosis, because it's always found as a manifestation of a neurodevelopmental disorder.

See Below: Agree with my colleague. I would recommend seeing a child psychologist for testing not only for diagnostic reasons, but also to figure out child's strength and weaknesses to help you take care of him by emphasizing his strengths. Also, child psychiatrist is also needed to help with med management if needed. Good luck! ...Read more

Are there any easy-to-notice behavioral warning-signs that a 5 year-old boy is cognitively delayed? Any recommendations for home-tests usable to see?

Language: Language is the developmental domain that correlates most with cognition- not speech, (articulation of words, ) but receptive ( what he understands) & expressive ( his ability to verbalize ideas) language. Yourschool district's child find will do a free evaluation of all developmental domains + social/adaptive skills. Screens are on childdevelopmentinfo.Com & dbpeds.Org., but also call child find. ...Read more

Eye/Vision:I am about ready to take AREDS2 for dry AMD. Other companies add omega 3 to original B&L clinical trial formula.Stay with AREDS2 or change?

Eye/Vision:I am about ready to take AREDS2 for dry AMD. Other companies add omega 3 to original B&L clinical trial formula.Stay with AREDS2 or change?

Check pricing: AREDS2 has proven value for slowing the progression of dry AMD. Omega 3 does not although it might help with eye dryness. Check out the extra cost of the AREDS2 with omega 3 and see if Omega 3 supplements alone add less cost. You might save money although the benefits for macular degeneration are doubtful. ...Read more

Is there any websites or cartoons that help with child development ? I'm looking for some that help small children learn faster .

Is there any websites or cartoons that help with child development ? I'm looking for some that help small children learn faster .

No: Babies interact and learn best when they interact with their parents and other people around them. Not multiple media. Involve your baby in your daily activities, keep him around people. Read and sing to him. Take him outside, let him explore with different textures, shapes and colors, encourage explorative behavior. Nothing substitutes the parents! ...Read more

Henoch-Schonlien Purpura as child from Lyme and given Aspirin. Portwine stain on arm. Digestive/skin/neuro symp. worse w/ age and b4 Mcycle. link?

Unrelated issues: Your HSP could give you transient issues for a few months & rarely long term kidney issues. If you didn't die from REYE syndrome after aspirin use (with flu or chickenpox), its a non issue. It is a good med we still occasionally use in kids. Your digestive/other issues could easily be food allergies/gluten related. I can't cobble these together as anything other than acquiring problems with age. ...Read more

Is it good practice or overkill to sanitize new grooming implements such as a New Safety Razor, Nail Clipper etc. ?

Could be overkill: Life is never 100% safe. If we aren't willing to live with some risks, we can't live at all, not even locked within our own homes. So, live freely and use those razors and nail clippers right out of their boxes. ...Read more
