Good question: Typical 1-year-olds feed a doll with a bottle, representing an act from the environment. Even at 3-4 years, kids with autism put the tip of the bottle in any indentation on the doll's body, sensorimotor play. Despite overdeveloped rote memory, they can't "get" concepts- things you can't see or touch-because of their concrete thinking. That's why therapy has to be intensive & repetitive to work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Kids are gifted. Mom never was but husband insists on her homeschooling them for religious reasons. Wrong?
Depends: I'm not a huge fan of home schooling, but data show that, effectively done, kids do as well as or better than those in public schools. There are many resources available, so one does not have to create an educational program from scratch. Biggest issues usually have to do with socialization, which can be harder; but, arranging for social contacts in other settings helps with that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Absolutely!: I'm glad you posted this question...Having studied martial arts myself and having enrolled my son in the study as well. 'studying' imparts not only self-discipline but confidence and self esteem as well; and can be great in potentially dealing with "bullies".

My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?
Maybe: Tv and video games are geared for a 4 second attention span. Most 2 year olds have longer attention spans than that. The 4 second attention span keeps your son alert via a neural reflex. It also lowers his attention span for the real world. Research states of those who watch 1 hour a day 9% will lower their attention span to add levels. 2 hours lowers 18% and 3 hrs 27%. Limit both to 45 min/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: One would hope for a more-than-cyber experience of life -- allowing real-time relationships with actual people, with all their challenges and rewards. Playing video games all day leaves no room for this, or for interests outside of video games. One's awareness would be extremely narrow. Also, unless you land a job as a tester of video games, it's hard to imagine earning a living that way. ...Read more

My sperm is not hot, before it was hot, dose it impact on fertility. I got married 4 months ago but not get any results in manners of permanency ?
Please restate Q: I don't understand your phrase "hot" in reference to sperm. Are you speaking of temperature? Temperature of sperm should not affect fertility although temperature of your testes might (better to be cooler than warmer). Assuming that you didn't have sex until you got married last month (congratulations! by the way), that's not enough time to get pregnant even if you have sex several times daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Rachel fell yesterday afternoon and got a fat lip. The next morning, the swelling looks worse. When should I consider going to see a doctor?

Generally you can help the swelling go down by applying a cold pack to the swollen lip for 20 min at a time. Signs of infection are redness in the surrounding skin, increasing pain or fever.
