Isa lang masasabi ko sa yo sis you are not alone.. saka kailangan nang patience di sa anak natin kung di pag dating sa ibang tao na di nakakaintindi. Akala natin di naiintindihan ng mga anak natin ang tinuturo natin pero they do they're a lot smarter than we think they are. Sometimes nagugulat na lang ako kung saan ba natututo yung anak ko pagdating sa computers yun pala because they watch and they model after us they absorb everything.

Hi there!

As a mom with a 6 year old ASD, I suggest you visit www.autismpinoy.com.   It's a great resource and the woman who built the website is a mom, special educator and a great friend.

my sister was diagnosed to have autisim at age 3. since pareho lang ang therapy here and sa States, my parents decided to have her therapies here sa Philippines.

right now, she is one of out most bemedalled athlete of the Special Olympics Phils. in bowling. nasa China sila ngayon to compete for the Special Olympics World Summer Games.

alam mo, nakakasad pero sa father side ko, may mga narinig pa akong nagsabi ng "bakit nyo pa pinagkakagastusan yan?" masakit, lalo na for mom (my dad is with the Lord already) meron naman kagabi tinext ko to watch the opening ceremonies of the games in china. tumawag sa bahay and tinanong ako kung lahat ba yun special. sabi ko oo. nagulat sya kasi ganun ka bongga ang event.

sis, we are blessed to have this special children in our lives. kasi we have a lots of love to give.:)

Hi. The Inquirer lifestyle editor, Chelo Banal-Formoso, wrote a very enlightening article on autism recently: http://showbizandstyle.inquirer.net/lifestyle/lifestyle/view_article.php?article_id=99017. Apparently diet has a lot to do with it. For instance she eliminated milk in her son's diet and there was a "big improvement" in his behavior.

Inquirer also recently ran a feature on 22-yo David Michael Lopez who graduated from college -- with a degree in communications!

Hi guys i'm not a newbie here actually but have been away for quite sometime because of my son's condition. My name's Alyc Lim a mom to a 6year old autistic boy before but now, after a year after of undergoing a lot of therapy sessions now, my son is diagnosed as a Hyperactive child now. I am so much happier now because my son is in the road to a better life thanks to all his therapy teachers and school teachers who dedicated their profession to give these God's precious gifts to us a better life and future. I feel for you other moms who have special children like mine too and I tell you, dont give up and lose hope for these kids to get better. They are not given to us because God is punishing us but give us LUCK and LESSON to learn. I embrace what God has given to me and you won't believe how it made me a very better person right now. I am not just learning things from my son everyday but I grow much individually as well. Don't focus on the negative side but turn the tables into positively because you might be shocked in the end as to how these special kids can move you in your life. I for myself, have been moved by my son everyday... i think of him as my teacher and me as a student. My TEACHER in LIFE.

I salute you all brave moms out there like me.

Hi there!

I met Chelo at the Autism Conference in Hong Kong last year.   My just turned 7 year old boy is on the GFCF diet and is doing quite well.   He is also undergoing the rest of the biomedical and behavioral therapies that were recommended for the last 3 or 4 years already.

He's still within the ASD spectrum but is improving daily.   I am thankful that these therapies are available and are helping my son cope with what seems to be a confusing world.   I am thrilled to see that there are parents out there like Chelo Formoso who is willing to bite the bullet and try everything for their children.   Most of the therapies I am currently doing for my child is not mainstream medicine, and is frowned upon by many of our local developmental pediatricians.    How I wish that article can open their minds about trying new avenues... but I doubt it will.

True, the diet and the other biomedical therapies are difficult and may be expensive to implement, but to see my son happy and saying "I love you, Mommy"  and behaving like a regular kid in a toy store (without tantruming) is by far the most rewarding thing in the world.

One thing I can also say to you as a parent, is that the doctors are not all-knowing.   A mother's instinct is more powerful and almost always on the bullet.   I have made it a "career" to learn more about autism and it's possible therapies and cures on my own through the internet and books.   It keeps me abreast of what is new and let's me discuss my ideas with the doctors myself.

Good luck!

"AUTISM IS TREATABLE"
« Reply #9 on: January 19, 2008, 08:51:16 pm »

To all parents of autistic children, please grab the newest copy of Healthy Options lifestyle digest. I'm not a mom to an autistic child, and I am in no way connected to Healthy Options (this is not a marketing stint), but this has certainly opened my eyes. What's so special about it is that experts (actual doctors) are now saying that AUTISM IS NOT A MENTAL DISEASE, RATHER IT IS A PHYSIOLOGICAL DISEASE," and they have proven this, and they are getting better, autistic people actually living normal lives. I think most of you are already Healthy Options card members 'coz it's a common shopping place for gluten-free food (again, not marketing here) but I think you can only grab a copy if you're a member.

My prayers are with you and I salute your strong strong spirits.

Hi!

To find out if your child is autistic, there are many early warning signs.   The most telling signs at age 1 include the following:
    * does not point
    * does not engage with others
    * has little or no eye contact
    * does not babble or begin to use words

If you notice these behaviors with your child, you would need to confer with a developmental pediatrician to confirm the diagnosis.    As with the previous posts, autism is not a disease you can treat lightly, but it is increasingly curable and treatable.


ADHD is linked to 3 main types of behavior:

   1. Trouble paying attention (inattention)
   2. Trouble staying still (hyperactivity or overactivity)
   3. Trouble controlling impulses (impulsivity)

Most children with ADHD do not have all 3 types of behaviors. For example, in some children, the main symptom may be hyperactivity. Others have more trouble paying attention. Still others may show signs of both hyperactivity and inattention. Girls are often diagnosed with the inattentive type of ADHD.

Children who have trouble paying attention may:
   Have a hard time staying focused on one thing
   Become bored easily
   Be distracted easily
   Have difficulty organizing and completing tasks
   Lose or forget things often
   Make frequent careless mistakes

Children who have trouble staying still may:
   Be always on the go
   Squirm and fidget often
   Run around or climb on things often
   Talk too much and have difficulty playing quietly

Children who have trouble controlling their impulses may:
   Act before they think
   Shout out inappropriate comments
   Grab toys from other children
   Often be unwilling to take turns

As children grow older, their ADHD symptoms may change. For example, they may become less hyperactive but still have trouble paying attention and being organized.

All children have these behaviors from time to time. However, children with ADHD have them more often and more intensely. This can impair their ability to do well at home and at school. For instance, children with ADHD who can't stay still or control their impulses may often disrupt the classroom, mealtimes, or family gatherings. Social relationships with friends can also be affected.


Taken from: www.adhdinfo.com/info/simplystated/adhd_symptoms.jsp?usertrack.filter_applied=true&NovaId=7852773789896854042

The main thrust of developmental pediatricians now is to give medication like Ritalin, Concerta and Adderall to treat ADHD.   This is unfortunate since many children end up looking like walking zombies when on medication.   ADHD, is a part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder, and can be treated the same way, through therapy, supplementation & diet.

 
I hope this helps!

I have a baby boy who was diagnosed with a PDD (pervasive developmental disorder). early intervention is very crucial. and of all the interventions available, i think the gf-cf is the most effective, especially if you apply it together with other interventions such as occupational/speech therapy or applied behavioural analysis (ABA). my son cannot digest anything that is artificial so aside from gf-cf diet..we're giving him organic foods.
