Is it possible to diagnose a child with both autism & aphasia? Child has Family history of autism, numerous autism symptoms, and prior brain injury.

Is it possible to diagnose a child with both autism & aphasia? Child has Family history of autism, numerous autism symptoms, and prior brain injury.

Name that diagnosis: Your question is very complex as is your child. It is possible to have both diagnoses. However it would be very difficult to diagnose both separately. I am wondering if the head injury is also related. I think you need to see a pediatric development and behavior specialist to help decide what to do. The treatment for the language delays will be about the same for either cause. ...Read more

Nuero docs can't find an answer to symptoms, confusion, syncope, myoclonic jerks, gait probs, clamy/faint, aphasia, stomach pain, could it be vit B12 def?

Nuero docs can't find an answer to symptoms, confusion, syncope, myoclonic jerks, gait probs, clamy/faint, aphasia, stomach pain, could it be vit B12 def?

COMPLEX: Your descriptions could fit many different syndromes, but would wonder if in fact you suffer, in part, juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. An ambulatory eeg might help. Re. B-12 issues, this can be easily resolved with a methyl melonic acid and homocysteine level, but also check folate (folic acid) levels. Might also obtain spinal fluid for immunological studies. Believe you can uncover causality, good luck. ...Read more

How can I communicate with people with wernicke's aphasia?

How can I communicate with people with wernicke's aphasia?

You seem to be doing: fine. Are you speaking about someone else with Aphasia? Posterior aphasias are much harder to treat than anterior aphasias. Sometimes some reading and writing skills are preserved. The problem of not recognizing ones ability to get their ideas across often frustrates people. Be patient. With time hopefully the Wernike's will improve to transcortical sensory aphasia and eventually anomic aphasia. ...Read more
