Title: Need ba talaga ng Therapy?
Post by: mommyl_lorna_gee on March 26, 2011, 04:07:47 pm
Good day everyone! help!

What can you say po sa situation ng baby ko??

Aerrol is 2 years and 8 months now. My only baby.  At his age, sbi ng relatives ng hubby ko something is wrong daw s kanya! (Oouch!) Hindi pa nakaka-usap/nkkipag usap kht knino ang baby ko. But he knows/recognizes d alphabet, numbers and colors. Ang iba dito ay nasasabi niya perfectly at ang ilan naman ay bulol pa ren. Kumakanta at sumasayaw rn cia but once n mapansin ninoman ang lahat ng ginagawa niya tumitigil na cia at pag pinaulit ay ayaw na... he can't say mommy, daddy, lola, ate and d likes.. but other words like apple, acorn, balloon ay kaya niya... ok naman ang locomotor skills niya,,, he can play alone and with other children too. pag my visitors or my occassion talon-takbo-talon-takbo na walang kapaguran... umiiyak cia pag totally nasaktan or hindi naibigay ang gusto...pag pinagsasabihan animo walang narinig... magana ciang qmain - veggies, kanin, fruits, bread... i see to it na tlagang no sweets and soda. breastfeed cia up to 2 years & 5 months. now he is taking formula milk & vit. C. n22log cia every afternoon...watch Tv pero minimal lang at pulos commercials lang ang gusto.. twice lang cia ngksakit and dat's because of feverish and colds... pag tinawag ang name niya once lang titingin at hindi n masusundan pa... minsan nga parang maloko na rn kc when sum1 calls his name titingin s ibang side tas mgsmile...we checked his EENT at ok naman daw.. no history both sides of having special child.. accdng to his pedia maaaring late or slow ang dvelopment ni utoy...

help! need b tlagang ipadoktor ko n c utoy? paranoid lang ba ang mga in-laws ko at laging naco-compare c utoy... should i be firm s cnasabi ko na aerrol is very fine lang tlaga and need time to advance in his other skills... . therapies, sessions and doctors are expensive which i think we can't afford to...simple lang po ang buhay ng pamilya ko.

thanks po sa inyong lahat...

in my opinion mom don't worry muna kasi yung baby ko nakapagsalita lang ng maayos when she is about 3.2 years old now that she's 3.6 super daldal na and before talagang nagwo worry ako nakakaparanoid naman talaga lalo na pag nakakita ka ng bata na same age niya tapos ang daldal and sabi mo nga kapag tinatawag naman siya eh lumilingon siya minsan lang may pagka naughty ganyan din baby ko pag tatawagin ko and umiiral yung pagka naughty eh talagang medyo lilingon lang tapos naka smile naman ang alam ko kasi sa special child kahit na tawagin mo ng tawagin eh hindi lilingon kaya wag munang mag worry soon magiging madaldal na rin  at sila na ang magsasawang sumagot sa mga questions ni utoy ....

i used to say "darating din kami dyan or makakapagsalita na din baby ko" nung 2 to 2.3yo sya.  but since 1.8mos sya i was a little persistent sa pedia ko on asking what next move should we take. hintay lang daw muna. contrary to other moms na na-encounter ni pedia, im the one who is open to having my baby checked daw. si pedia ayaw muna but i heed her advise. so my son was 2yo na when she agreed on letting him see a developmental pedia, sya ang nagbigay ng name ng doctor at isiningit niya kami since getting an appointment is so hard talaga.  on the first assessment, merong konting locomotor (gross and fine) ang delayed sya. sa language talagang obvious yung delays niya. i heard expensive ang consultation (2,500) but for peace of mind and for baby most especially, kaya go.

very few words lang ang with meaning niya (car, light) at di rin kami matawag. sometimes he says dada but not always pertaining to his dad. no academic background pa. he used to be playful with sounds pero di ko lang matandaan when he slowed down. hyperactive din minsan. picky eater and we had appetite booster na rin. nagstart syang umayaw sa food nung 1yr 4mos when my youngest was born. hindi rin sya tabain. he wouldnt look when called at nakafocus sa tv. (di rin maiwasan ang tv kasi pag nasa condo ka, boring at nakakalungkot kaya the yayas resort to tv rather than going outside at magtsismis).

we started having OT right away kasi di pa ready for speech therapy si baby. it's already 6months (with absences in between) pero nababagalan ako. di ko rin matutukan kasi im working and we cant be so sure kung everyday e napapractice nga niya sa bahay with ate lalo na i also have a younger baby pa at home. OT session is around 450-500/hr. 2x a week ang advise samin. now his teacher said my son is doing well but still cant focus totally. he easily gets distracted. yung speech niya ganon pa din.

i postponed our 3rd visit to the dev pedia kasi malamang sasabihin we're still not ready for ST. kaya more OT muna kami for 2months tsaka kami pupunta sa kanya baka by that time e ready na si kuya. 

i just learned last month, si regular pedia pala meron ding son na labeled with autism. he is now 7yo and mainstream na daw.

to mommyl_lorna_gee, buti nga baby mo knows the alphabet and others. but it's better to see a dev pedia dahil meron syang speech delay.  from what i've read here, kahit nakakapgsalita na ang baby natin pero kung hindi tugma sa age still they need intervention.

good luck to us!

thanks po for sharing...  :)

mommy ask ko lang po. what po b specifically ang ginagawa ng mga therapists sa sessions ng baby nyo? pano po yung ways ng pagtuturo/therapy nila... gumagamit po b sila ng mga machines / devices? or something like 'schooling'? ska po nagta-take rn po b ng medicines ang baby nyo in prior sa therapy niya? thanks a lot po... gudluck s lhat ng mga mommies...  :)
Title: Re: Need ba talaga ng Therapy?
Post by: riddermark on April 08, 2011, 02:33:35 pm
with Occupational Therapy? NO wala namang machines. some of the things  na tinuturo sa house but of course, mas focused at proper way of teaching sila. that's the price we pay (siguro for moms who dont have enough time to bond/teach their kids).  but that's not the only factor, syempre si baby din mismo, kung talagang delayed sya it will be a little hard to teach him/her. so the OT comes in.

so far eto pa lang ata ang na-ta-tackle nila. gross motor, fine motor (activities that help his hand and eye coordination, pinching, mga ganon).  konting academic din. next meet nila mag try sila to let my son feed himself. ano pa ba. meron ding konting massage. one of the things na naappreciate ko is my son knows how to pack away (with the help of the therapy). though sa bahay on off yon pero automatic na daw pagdating sa school alam na niya gagawin niya.  sensory integration. yung eye contact wala pang malaking improvement. kasi hanggan ngayon di sya lumilingon when called or he does pag feel lang niya. no medicines kami it depends siguro kasi me ibang kids don on meds sila. wala ring food restrictions other than G6PD related  (G6PD kasi son ko).

yung speech naman hindi pa kami nakaka advance don kasi yung attention span niya medyo di pa ganon katagal.

Post by: riddermark on April 08, 2011, 02:40:54 pm
yes parang schooling lang na one-on-one. table tasks, tapos me physical (balancing/walking on beams, jumping, etc.) depende yan sa delay ni baby mo. kami kasi delayed sa eye and hand coordination, personal and social, lalo na sa hearing and speech.  depende naman sa assessment kung saan sila magfofocus ng OT.

Slightly different yung experience namin. We were lucky to get a pedia who is also a developmental pediatrician, and early on siya ang nag-tetest and nag-pupush sa amin na mag therapy.

Initially, nag-try kami ng Center for Developmental Pediatrics sa Medical City primarily to address speech delays. But our schedules, and living in Makati made it very difficult to stay regularly. Plus nagkasakit pa siya twice last year.

Now that we live in Ortigas though, our pedia recommended naman Occupational Therapy for our son and so far maganda yung progress niya in speech and other areas.

I understand why some people avoid therapy also, but in our case because medyo delayed and we wanted our son to be able to express himself better (nagiging violent siya dahil sa frustration in communication), we felt it was worth it.

hi mga mommies..

9 this morning nagpa-assess kami kay Dra. Marizel Pulhin-Dacumos, Helping Hands clinic at Batangas City. her present impression about my son, Aerrol, is Communication Disorder and T/C Autistic Spectrum Disorder... lhat daw kc ng symptoms(fleeting eye contact, deviant language, regression of skills/no pointing - hand pulling to indicate needs, inconsistent response to name calling...) ng Autism ay ma-oobserv s kanya. Upon her advise, 2x a wik ang Occupational Therapy niya... 500/session... His speech therapy will be followed after 4 months if and ever there are developments for his previous month-therapy... Masakit tanggapin, I almost cried in d clinic upon hearing the result of my son... AUTISM... its a life - long condition that will get worst if you will not do anything at an early age... as a light of HOPE, sinabi ni dra. na dont wori, upon getting the right therapist/therapy at follow-up s bahay yung mga weaknesses ni baby ay mapapalakas, he will be normal before 7 seven yo...

Im a teacher pero kahit may kakayanan akong magturo na tulad ng ginagawa ng mga therapist still i need the help of a specialist...

Dra. dAcumos has also a clinic in St. Luke's and Medical Center Manila...

thanks po for reading...update ko again kyo

when i broke d news to my husband, he cried.... ders d denial dat his son is nt dat  ..nang kausap ako ng parents q at in-laws i showed dem na ok lang ako pero ng kami n lang ni hubby ang naguusap tlagang i cried and cried... sbi q i hve dis mother instinct na hindi naman tlaga ganun ang anak ko...stil in d end, i realized n higit s lhat ako ang dapat mgpakita ng tatag at lakas...my hubby wanted to hve a 2nd opinion sbi q ok lang wala nmang masama bka UST daw... even yung "quack doc" pinapatulan namin.. b4 kc ay pinapahanap niya (quack doc) kami ng "susi n sinauna" ggamitin daw niya un pra ky utoy, kc me naging pasyente cia n 2lad ng ky utoy at naging ok on d spot... after pagtatanong s mga mtatanda at kung san-san antique shops nakakita rn kami... maybe 1 of dis days bumalik kami dun at dala n ang susi but stil on sat ddiretso p rn kami s therapy...

we're trying everything for d best of my son. buti n nga lang at iisa p lang c Aerrol... sbi kc ni doc never na ipa-feel sa bata na 'ganun' cia kc once na mfeel my tendency n maging bayolente... treat d child as a normal un ang sinasabi ko sa ibang relatives dn..nilalakasan tlaga namin ang loob kht na nga ba wala kming sapat na pera, kasehodang mangutang kami at i-cut off ang ibang bagay... ganun tlaga...

Para masagot po lahat ng questions mo at para mawala lahat ng iniisip mo i suggest to better go to a professional to get the answers you want to hear. Its better na professionals ang sasagot sa lahat ng tanong mo at sila na rin magpapaliwanag kung ano ang dapat. For children's development its better to ask a developmental pedia. You can ask your pedia if they can refer a good devped. with them you can get the answers you've been wanting pati best treatment may it be clinical or domestic treatment. mahirap po kasi ipagsawalang bahala ang health ng bata. Remember that early intervention is really effective.

first day s therapy ni aerrol - s 1st day, evaluation and interview about d baby lang pla - wala p gnawa clang mga tasks, interview pra malaman daw nila kung anong level at structure ang dapat para s bata... 1 thou ang naging bayad namin.. d therapist asked all about d baby - nung pinagbubuntis ko cia, d medications and vitamins i took pati kung alcoholic at smoker ang hubby; ano ang environment n gnagalawan ni baby, sino mga kasi s bhay, sino ang nag-aatend s personal needs niya....

d interview also took about how sensitive ang baby ko... she asked all d related things to d senses of my baby, den, she said dat my baby is almost normal s lhat ng bagay n ginagawa niya... not mainstream... kc pag autistic child mxado mataas ang sensitivity s maraming bgay... thanx God...

for d 2 days im observing my baby, mabilis na ciang nakkasunod sa mga words ngaun, bwat araw my bagong word kami naririnig s kanya... but his focus is still d same...

we tried d 'quack doc' 2 days ago after dat un nga mxado mabilis na ang pick-up niya s mga words...ewan ko ba kung me effect yung ginawa ng 'quack doc' sa kanya or nagkataon lang.... kac s therapy niya wala pa or  hindi pa naman kami nkakapagstart ... at kung delayed man cia maaaring ngaun yung time na nagsstart na ciang mgprocess ng lahat.... is it true to all cases na pag delayed b talaga ang bata subject for special condition or therapy na agad-agad?

Thankx po for reading... Gudluck and Godbless sa atin mga mommies...

@mommyl_lorna_gee

I don't think it's true for all cases. Sometimes kids are delayed for many different reasons, which is why professionals are needed to evaluate the situation, do tests and evaluations and so on.

Yung gusto naman kasi is that whatever is done to help our children is the right thing, and sometimes you try different ways to find out what works.

It's hard to second-guess in your case, because you've already gotten several opinions so the best thing I think is to listen to what they're saying and decide.

hi mga mommies...

it is almost 3months ang son ko sa knyang Occupational Therapy... ask kung merong progress? meron naman kaya lang very slow... until now hindi pa rin nakakasunod ng full instructions yung anak ko... but when you ask him like 'Aerrol, what color is this? ; What shape is this? ; What animal is this? ; What word is this?' nasasagot naman niya... pero yung Get the... and Give me... instructions hindi pa rin niya ma-follow... Sbi ng mga therapists niya and kami rin n parents niya, very high ang cognitive skills niya.. he can recognize and recite numbers up to 60, colors, animals, shapes, alphabets and even you spell out a word to him nababasa or narerecite na niya... im glad na sinasabi nila na ganoon ang anak ko, na may potential maging genius and everything...kaya sabi ko pag me session sila siguro ang mas tutukan n lang eh yung behavior niya, kung papano yung waiting skills and simple instructions eh masusunod ng anak ko...

nakapasok kami ng EBD program, dito s batangas ang local government namin ay nagpo-provide ng tulong para sa mga pamilya na can't afford ang therapy sa mga centers o hospitals.. nkaprogram un either 3 months or 6months depende sa case ng bata... 1 month ay nka-allot sa bata ang 10000 pesos kaya tlagang malaking tulong smen ang EBD kc kung kami lang hindi namin kakayaning bayaran ang 4 sessions every wik.. sbagay kung sariling-bulsa ang gagamitin 1 or 2 times na lang per week...so ngaun, if ever mkakatapos ang anak ko ng OT at makakadiretso na cia ng Speech therapy tlagang pinaghahandaan n namin ang magiging gastos... well puwede pa rin nmang i-renew yung EBD kaya lang matatagalan pa rin un kasi kelangan bigyan dn ng chance yung ibang patients naman..

nung i-observe ko sa center yung way ng pagtuturo sa mga bata at kung paano sila ihandle, i can say na kung fulltime and really dedicated for the case ng anak ang magulang kahit hindi na ipasok sa center, well, talo nga lang pagdating sa mga instructional materials pero parang hindi rin naman kasi ako nga ang ginagawa ko nag-iimprovise na lang ako ng puwede nmeng gamitin pag tinuturuan ko ang anak ko kasi yung ginagamit nila sa center na mga toys eh expensive...

hanggang sa muli mga mommies... be strong at laging manalig sa Panginoon...

Hi Mommy. I haven't been here for a long time. I read the thread. I'm glad that there are lots of improvements with your son already. That's great that he can identify a lot already. My daughter is 4.5 already and she's starting to identify pa lang. Be strong. We know naman that no matter what, we'll love our kids just the same. Just to maximize his potential, tyaga lang with the therapies...and gastos na parang wlang katapusan.  :) Tutok lang din. Out of all the therapies that I tried,mommy therapy has been the best. We can do a lot for our kids that no other therapists can. Tyaga lang talaga.

Anyway, I have a blog. It's about our family's journey with Autism. Hope you'll have time to read it. We also started when my daughter was only 1.9. You'll see there everything that we went through and more. It's like a roller coaster ride. Check it out at www.autism-angel.blogspot.com

Happy reading. Good luck to all of us.

good day mommies!

i read a lot of threads and articles saying about  CFGF diet for ASD cases but when i asked our therapists and doc it seems that they are not really restricted to what really the kind of food a child should eat or not... tinanong ko sila tungkol dito sa mga milk and dairy products at ang sabi nila eh hindi naman daw bawal... 'siguro' ay iwasan n lang daw tlaga yung milk n mxadong sweet. tingnan daw yung glucose content kung higher if so do not give dat to d child... other foods na sinabing bawal eh iyong naturally alam nating mga mommies na hindi pa tlaga puwede sa isang bata like sweet foods, soda.... ay, may sinabi rin pala sila na bawal daw ang hotdog, at foods na may mga preservatives... pero yung sa milk and dairy products they are not sure about it samantalang sandamakmak na yung nagsasabi na it can really help daw  tlaga sa case ng bata...

ang pasalamat ko n lang tlaga after i gave up my baby in his breastfeeding (2 years and 5 mos.) hindi tlaga niya nagustuhan ang kahit anong milk. sobrang dami ng milk kaming nabili but in the end mga pamangkin ko na lang ang nakinabang... i tried to give him also yung soya milk hindi rin niya nagustuhan.... so ngaun dahil  hindi namen tlaga kaya yung Foods in prior sa CFGF, ang ginagawa ko n lang ky aerrol ay more on kanin tlaga, meat, fish, egg, fruits (supertakaw) and veggies... s snack time niya tasty bread lang widout spread buti yung Gardenia bread meron lasa compare to others, minsan eh Skyflakes cracker, at fruits pa rin... ok lang ba yung YAKULT s kanya? jan lang tlaga umiikot ang kain niya sa loob ng 1 araw.  ang sweet foods naman niya ay pili yung mga gusto niya na ginagawan tlaga namen ng paraan na hindi maipakain s kanya like chocolate at icecream... salbahe kasi minsan mga relatives dahil un pa ang gustong-gusto ipakita s kanya pag nagkikita-kita kami... ganoondin s softdrinks.. kaya hindi tlaga maiwasan na s isang linggo 1 or 2 days nakakatikim siya ng mga ganyang foods...

aerrol is in his 4 months therapy minsan participative cia s knyang mga therapists minsan parang bored na...

till next time mommies... GOD BLESS US!  ;)

@mommy riddermark  ;)

hi mommy! occupational therapy p rn c utoy. after dis sept 4 months na cia, i-evaluate ulit ni Doc if my improvement. If yes, he will proceed na speech therapy pag hindi pa full OT pa rin cia... meron daw nmang case na both OT and ST... s OT niya ang inaaral nila ngaun eh more on obstacle courses, ADL (snapping, buttoning and zipping; donning and doffing of shirt, short, socks; brushing of teeth), verbal commands... mataas ang cognitive skills ni utoy accdg to his therapists kaya they apply those to higher levels mga obstacles nga... .

im thankful kc iba p rin yung level ni aerrol, its not extreme.. his not 'bayolente'... maxadong mabait ang anak ko at napakahilig mag-aral... time will come na everything will be alright and normal to him... thanks GOD! kumusta ka po mommy? musta ang kid mo? we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us...

till next time po... :)

this coming wednesday may assessment ulit kami. i hope me good news akong marinig from his doctor. he has improved but could not identify yet. i mean there are those that he's familiar na but wouldnt identify outright. selective. so i dont think papasa yun sa doctor but i am hoping she'll give better assessment. at sana by this time malaman namin kung ano talaga. ASD lang kasi ang sinabi niya e.

keeping my fingers crossed.

hi mga mommies... long time, no talk here hehe  :D been busy for my work... im starting to teach na ulit sa school dis time public naman... andaming adjustments...
how's ur family po? ur kids?

i am 3 months pregnant now... all i am looking forward is positive! dapat naman po d ba? lagi ko nireremind c aerrol na sooner magkakaroon n cia ng kapatid... he always kiss my  tummy!  :D Tart and I are both excited for what would be Aerrol when his bro/sis come out!

last February ang naging last session ni Aerrol sa therapy center niya. Almost 1year na  kami sa therapy session niya... last Feb din lang ginawa ang 2nd evaluation niya na supposedly ay nung 4th month niya... we are so disappointed with d results of his evaluation! sa sinabi ng doctor malinaw na halos wala cia inimprove! samantalang compare nung unang dating namen s kanya to evaluate i can say na 'kulang na kulang' talaga c aerrol s mga skills and speech... but now.... aerrol can read and spell any word, he can recognize lots of things, he can point and name what he wants(kahit na nga one - three words lang) but he can answers some questions completely in  sentences. when we command him like put on your shirt, short, brief.. get ur bag, ur cap.. give and get this/that, nakakasunod naman cia... his teacher, wala n nga halos maituro s kanya sa OT. nkakatravel na cia mag-isa and do wewee sa CR. hindi n cia nagda-diaper sa  bhay.. etc. tapos sasabihin ng doctor na ang inimprove lang ay point (.) something... how come dis doctor can measure the point something progress of d child like before in d area of language was 9 months old but in his 2nd eval was 10.2 months old!?! ni hindi nga nag-lasts ng 1 hour ang evaluation niya... and she directly said dat c condition of my son is really similar to Kris Aquino's son samantalang physically and how Josh talks kitang-ktia ng me abnormality ang layo sobra naman nun sa anak ko! We said also dat we are trying to enroll Aerrol in a regular day care school. We are goin to see for 1st to 2nd month if he can really goes along with d other children, if not den a spcl school will be pursued. but d doctor said 'no, no, bakit naman ninyo naisip na papasukin ang bata dun eh alam naman ninyo na kailangan talaga ng bata ng special education..." at dis point alam namen na hindi kami nakuha ni doctora sa ibig namin for Aerrol, and dat she's persuading something.  First evaluation ni Aerrol was communictn disorder, and to be considered ASD but nitong huling in all caps sa evaluation niya ay ASD... ASD with so many things na kaya nang gawin at sabihin ang anak ko ay talagang concluded na niya na ASD! The management of the center was poor! So many patients, so many programs na hindi na naiintindihan...uso rn ang pulitika, we are waiting for so many months para makapag-speech  na si Aerrol pero andaming mas binibigyan ng priority... sayang lang ang 10, 000  pesos in a month given to dem!

.Aerrol is time out muna sa therapy niya... . Start n lang ulit namen dis mid-April. Dis time sa ibang therapy center naman and doctor... sana dito makita namen ang tama para sa anak namen, at sana dis wil be the '2nd home' for him.

till next time moms. God bless us!  :)

@mommyl_lorna_gee: before, nung pina-practice ko pa ang OT, we do daily evaluations. Maybe you can ask the OT to provide you those details contrary to the doctor's evaluation for your own peace of mind. I remember pa nga every friday we let the kids bring home their (communication) notebooks, so parents will know their progress. Nakakalungkot naman isipin na may mga doctors na walang puso or should I say wala talagang rapport sa patient nila. Yung para mairaos lang yung evaluation at kumita na sila.  :(

@mommyl_lorna_gee - pa PM naman sakin sino ang Dev Pedia ng baby mo. i could not say we are the same kasi di hamak na mas skillful si aerrol kesa sa eldest ko. admittedly medyo mabagal talaga ang development ng anak ko at may times nagreregress. i'm just curious don sa assessment ng doctor because there are a few similarities to ours. gusto ko lang i-assess on a different situation.

sis errych, for moms like me who can't teach their child on a regular basis and would rely on the therapists' notebook lang... i find it a little difficult kasi if i haven't seen how those drills are done. dummy or idiot's guide kailangan ko.  :D
gusto ko kasi makita how to react, how to prompt, what to say to encourage or reprimand kapag hyper, etc.

also, maybe you can help me with this dilemma. im planning to relocate sa province at walang SP don. would enrolling my son to a school with IEP program compensate speech therapy?  kasi by no means talaga ang Speech therapy don. I can do siguro kami lang at home. with that, i have to search what to teach online pa.

hello mga mommy...good evening.  gusto ko din sana i-share about my 2nd son. he was born to us at 8 mos old. he is now 3 years old, hindi pa nagsasalita. when he was 2 1/2 nakaka count naman na siya 1 to 10, bulol nga lang. pero hanggang dun lang. he babbles a lot, para nga lang chinese hindi maintindihan. he seldom responds when his name is called, pag may kailangan siya, hinihila kami and dadalhin dun sa object. pero before siya nag two years old pina BAER namin siya sa PCMC and they found out na clogged left ear niya, so naayos naman na yun pero di naman nag improve. hyper sya, sobrang likot, he loves playing with his brother naman, naghahabulan, nagkikilitian, sometimes pa nga siya and humihila sa kapatid niya para mag play sila. he hugs us when he feels like it. minsan naman hindi kami pinapansin. mahilig manood ng tv lalo na sa commercials.
dinala namin siya kay dr. dimalanta here in baguio nung feb, diagnosis niya communication disorder to rule out autism. now nag improve naman sya. he is more patient and sometimes when i ask him to repeat a word, he repeats it naman na kaya lang kung ayaw niya, ayaw niya talaga. he was able to say 'open, chocoyet, babay...etc...mga mommies, what do you think, could it really be autism or communication disorder lang talaga? what are the differences ba talaga? im so worried, he is now 3 yrs old but i haven't heard him call me mama yet. i long and pray so hard for the day that i can eventually hear him say the word. thanks...

mommy fedelym...

alam nio po mommy sa 1st eval ni aerrol communication disorder dn cia t/c ASD and nung 2nd eval niya ASD daw tlaga ang bata ko...therapist/teacher ni aerrol ang nag explain p s aken ng ASD... wen it comes to speech delayed tas merong mga behaviors na dapat icorrect it usually leads to Autism daw... napakalawak daw kc ng Autism, which primarily covers yung pagkadelayed ng speech plus my mga unusual behaviors nga... ang communication daw para masabing normal sa mga tao dapat nagagawa yung 3 areas.... (1) words (2) medium like verbal, gestures, written...(3) know d real sense or meaning of words lets say nauuhaw ang bata kung marami n ciang alam na salita na nkaimbak s isip niya at nakaramdam cia ng pagkauhaw dapat mapili niya ang tamang salita like mommy i want to drink... kapag nagkulang daw ang bata alinman s mga areas na ito tas samahan p ng mga unwanted behaviors ASD ang diagnose s kanya...

naka-enrol n c aerrol, iaasess p rn cia kung dapat nga ba ay sa Early Intervention Class or something higher na cia mapupunta... sobrang mahal magpa-aral s mga develomental schools!!!
