hello mommies! just like to let this feeling out, just last week, halos gumuho ang mundo ko when my 3 year old son was diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder, mixed emotions na ako talaga, and kahit anong pilit kong magpakatatag nfor my son, ang hirap talaga, lalo na at single mom ako..  :( all i ever want in my life right now is for my son to have a normal life :( me chance pa kaya na magkaroon ng normal life si baby ko? like going on a regular school etc... kasi based sa mga nbsa ko over the net, severe daw ang case ng ASD kapag mas madalas siya magtantrums.. eh my son is madalas magtantrums lalo na kapag bago ang environment niya at kapag may ayaw siya :(

Hi rhovie,

i feel for you. I have a 2yo son who could also be diagnosed as being in the spectrum come monthend. But have you read also that early intervention greatly helps? I suggest you engage your son in therapy sessions.  My kid who is now undergoing OT sessions 3x a week has shown great improvements already.  Plus, we reiterate what's being taught by the therapist in our son's activities at home.  Also, focus on your child's strengths. Always make him feel loved. I have friends who also have kids with ASD and they assure  me that as hard as it is to accept, life still goes on even when your kid has ASD.
My dream also is for my son to be mainstreamed. But for now, we just focus on how we can help him overcome his delays, that is our main goal. If we are stuck kasi with the thought that our kid has ASD, baka mas lalo tayong hindi makafocus. I'm sure your kid will turn out fine, basta as early as now, learn all you can para matulungan mo siya. God bless.
If i may ask, what are the things present in your child for him to be diagnosed with ASD? Thanks

Hello fellow sp mommie MyAdie!

He has speech delay and does repetitive actions like spinning of wheels,etc. his devped is Dra Conducto of PCMC. Kahit ako sis I can say he is in the spectrum. He's not like other kids kasi. Bukas start ng OT niya 1-2 times a week. Me nakita na ako na daycare where he'll be expose in other kids. 750p a month to think na malapit lang siya sa house namin. Gusto ko rin siya ilagay sa streamline kasi kahapon when we went there, at first laro lang ng laro. Nung me kasabayan na siya na bata who falls in line for the slide ginaya niya. Which is good kasi akala namin hindi siya nag oobserve.

Hi sarahk,

If he plays ba with toy cars, consistent na nag-i spin lang sya ng wheels? As in never syang nagpagulong ng toy cars like he knows how to play with it?
ang anak ko kasi ganyan din dati lagi wheel spinnning lang pero ngayon never ko na syang nakitang nag spin ng gulong ng toycars. And when he plays, may sound na din na sinasabi like broom broom or to this effect.
Good sign yung sa kid mo ibig sabihin may awareness sya. Ang kid ko din speech delayed eh. Wala pang nasasabi except mama when he calls me pero hindi pa din consistent. Can your kid follow simple commands like sit down, or shoot the ball. If yes, good signs din yun.

Hi Sarahk, pahabol pa. Sabi ng therapist ko kasi, repetitive behavior is for example, lining up of toys. considered syang repetiitive if kahit iwan mo yung kid mo na buong araw yun lang ang gagawin eh okay lang sa kanya or kung pigilan mo naman eh magwawala ng sobra then yung daw ang repetitive or stereotype behavior.  Pero if occasional niya lang ginagawa without actually being a hindrance sa ibang gagawing activity then that's called self stimulation or stimming.
ano palang mga pinagawa ni dra sa son mo para mabigyan ng diagnosis?

sis myadie. yun anak ko naman he is around 2.11 year old this month pag may line or bsta may naka parallel nagsspacing sa yun bang titingnan niya from left to right and sometimes if may countertop bsta ka eye level niya ganun din tinitingnan niya ng pa left to right nhuhuli ko pero hndi naman madalas right now mga 3 times a week ko makita nun sinearch ko sa net lumalabas its a visual stimming tama  ba?..btw we're having 2 ot and 2 speech theraphy twice a week na and enroll sya in regular  toddler class
initial eval namin last march communication disorder " although namention kona din yan  sa devped nun eval nilagay niya pa din that time communication disorder pero sympre magbabago pa din yun and im just scare right now kasi mamaya pagbalik namin sa oct. its asd na :(

my question is automatic ba if may visual stim pero may socialiazation naman autism na? but feeling ko may echolalia din sya though sometimes may tama din naman sa mga sinasabi niya ,, and may tip toe :(

positive traits naman niya as far as i know:
-he have good eye contact pag you call him titingin naman
-sa concepts like number, letter, shapes, colors ok naman sya
-socialization ok naman kasi minsan nga tatawagin niya tell niya" mommy play" meaning play daw kami , tapos pag napapadaan kami sa jolibee point niya yun madalas tapos with matching tingin pa sakin to double check if tinitingnan ko un tinuturo niya, 
-nakakpag request na sya "pls open " borrow mommy", bsta un mga requesting and command  okey naman
- sa answering yes or no eto di pa masyado consistent ..pero pag mayron ka ask na ayaw na ayaw niya sasagot sya ayaw ,...pero pag di sya interested sa tinatanung mo hndi sya sasagot or uullitin lang niya tanung mo,, pero one time tinuruan ko sya i asked him do you like yakult? i said he say "i like yakult, yes!  then naanswer naman niya  ganun ...kaso one time ask ko sya .do you like "peanut? sagot niya "i like peanut, yes! "...echolalia ba yun? kasi same na same yung pagkabuo ng sentence din ba although yung subject napapalitan niya like instead of yakult nagawa naman nyang peanut  :-\   
- then mukhang may pakelam naman sya sa paligid kasi magsisisigaw yan ng "sama, sama mommy" habang umiiyak pa  pag nakita niya sasakay ako ng car tapos maiiwan sya
-when you ask all the name of the people in the housewhold alam niya even his own name and his school name

hay hirap ng stage na di ko alam kung san kami patungo although may times na pinipilit kona lang i-accept na may mild asd anak ko para pag sinabi na merun nga hndi na masyado masakit di ba  :'(

Hi darna88
Pagkasabi kasi sa kin ng therapist ko, there are 3 critical areas na pang evaluate ng ASD - social, language or communication tsaka repetitive movements. Ang stimming is not considered repetitive or stereotype behavior unless yun nga, pag iwan mo sya kahit buong araw sya yun lang gagawin niya, like close-open door for an hour or so, tapos pigilan mo, magagalit, then that's repetitive behavior. Ang son ko walang visual stimming. Ang prominent sa kanya dati hand flapping. Pero ngayon nabawasan na, yun lang minsan sa bahay for example sa bedroom namin, lakad sya ng lakad with matching jumping pa. Ang gusto ko lang sa anak ko, nakakaupo na sya for table top activities ng medyo matagal, 10-15mins. Can follow simple commands na din like wave bye, give, high five, sit down, remove socks or shoes.
Parehas tayo, natatakot din ako na baka malabelan nga ang anak ko. Pero pag inisip ko, ano naman kung may label? Does that label make him less of a person? do we love our kids less just because he has ASD?
Buti nga your son can speak na and he can tell you things already. My son just turned 2 years old this July 9th and babbling pa din kami until now pero hindi ako nawawalan ng hope, alam ko in time makakapagsalita din sya.  Good indications yung may awareness and humahabol sa yo if aalis ka> i've a friend na yung anak niya may ASD din, as in deadma daw if aalis sila or what. The kid treats them like any other object, though yun nga yung sa kid niya, medyo nasa extreme side of the spectrum.
Overall, i don't think you child has ASD.  Ganyan din gusto kong isipin for my son, not that in denial ako until now. Basta tayo naman as parents, whatever we can do to bring out the best in our kids, yun naman ang ginagawa natin. I'm sure your kid will just be fine.

Ang anak ko nung hindi pa kami nagte therapy as in walang eye contact, walang response to name calling, grabeng handflapping and tiptoeing. Nung ngstart na kami ng stimulation sa therapy at sa bahay, biglang may eye contact na, may awarenss na din. alam niya if play time nakikisali. Dati din, pag naglaro ng kotse, pinapagulong lang ang wheels, ngayon hindi niya na ginagawa ito. never din syang nag line up ng toys. Ngayon, yung 26 letter of the alphabet, na a identify niya lahat ng letters. When i tell him, get J for example, alam niya, pati 0-9 at 9 shapes. Mabilis na sya mag pickup.
Ang kulang sa kanya, imitation. May konting pointing na din pag may tinanong ako pero to show interest, walang pointing. hand leading pa din kami until now if he wants to get something and he needs help.

Hi sis myadie! Malaki talaga ang developmental delay ng son ko which is really, really alarming. Like sa age niya hindi niya nagagawa kung anong appropriate in terms of speech,communication,etc. he doesnt respond sometimes pero minsan nakikinig naman. It doesnt mean pala na if he can respond minsan, disregard na as having asd. Consistent daw kasi dapat. Though ngaun hindi pa lumalabas yung ibang signs, later on as he grows old dun pa magmamanifest. hindi rin daw kasi maganda na i-compare(which is hindi ko ma control) siya sa ibang bata with asd kasi its a broad spectrum. One will never have the same signs with other. Mas nauna pa niyang natutunan ang 1-10 at abc kesa ma recognize yung mama at papa. 2 years old na siya, he cant say two phrases pa. First activity na ginawa nila ni dra, naglaro sila ng blocks. Ang problem ng child ko, paulit2 niya binabalik2 baba sa floor ang mga blocks sa table. Its doesnt mean na diagnosed with asd na eh dapat ng ma label. Its a disorder, disability na hindi tama ang development sa mga skills niya which is dapat i korek, imo. Nakaka depressed minsan kaya lang Im doing my best para maging normal ang life niya. Ang sakit lang pag may makita kang bata na agad nako compare mo sa anak mo. Tanong sa sarili na Bakit sila? Bakit yung anak ko ganito? Hindi ko pa rin maiwasan na manlumo.

Hi sarahk.
Medyo na bother naman ako dun. sabi ba ng dev pedia mo, pwedeng magmanifest pa yung symptoms as he gets older? kagaya sa anak ko. hindi sya nagta tantrums or walang sensitivities sa loud sounds. possible daw bang dumating yung time na when he grows older, magtatantrums na sya at magkaka sensitivity na which is apparent to kids with ASD?

pero di ba yun nga din ang purpose natin for early intervention? para din yung mga delays nila maagapan natin at maka cope sila later on...

hi myAdie!

sorry for the late reply, anyways, the symptoms that shows is: speech delay, no recognition of name when being called, no eye contact, low frustation tolerance, tska super tantrums siya nung asa clinic siya.. although when he was still 2 years old, nakita ko skanya yung other symptoms like spinning in circles, walking tip toe, hand swinging.. pero hindi ko na nakita un nung nag 3 years old siya, kaya akala ko normal lang talaga siya.. pero nung sinubukan ko na siya ipasok sa play school, lumabas na yung aggressiveness niya, nangangagat siya ng classmate niya tska nanunulak without reason, kaya sinuggest ng teacher na ipatingin ko daw sa dev't pedia, at un nga ang lumabas, me ASD feature daw ang son ko, he's doctor is dr.planta.. right now, tomorrow is his first day of OT sessions.. hopefully mging ok talaga siya..

Hi rhovie,

Pero yung no eye contact, no response to name calling and low frustration tolerance, napansin mo na din ba ito nung 2yo sya along with the other symptoms you mentioned? O nung nag 3yo bigla na lang no eye contact at no response to name calling?
My son kasi before mag 2 wala talagang eye contact at response pero awa ng Diyos meron na ngayon, thanks to therapy. Sa frustration level, pansin ko naman sa kanya mabilis pang ma divert yung attention niya.

Hi myAdie!

since 2 years old siya, nakit ko na sa kanya nung no eye contact, no response to name calling, and low frustration tolerance. Since 2 years old pa siya nun, and with accordance of my mother, we really thought na mawawala din un, kasi sabi ni mama, natural lang daw sa mga batang lalake ang ganun.  Its good that ur son has improvements already, :) my son is undergoing OT sessions now so far so good pa naman.. :). But we notice something, kasi according to his dev't pedia, one of the cause daw ng hyperactivity ng son ko is his choco-milk drink (choco na gatas na bear brand), in which we decided na to stop, and we were surprised to see na hindi na siya ganun ka-active compare before, although me mga konting kakulitan pa din, pero mas manageable na siya kahit papano.. :)

Hi rhovie,
Donít worry, youíll see improvements also with your son as time goes by. Basta stick to the OT sessions and reinforce at home whatís being taught by the therapist.  What also greatly helped my son is we lessen exposure to tv and gadgets, and puro play lang kami. I also introduced him na to shape sorting, board puzzles of letters and numbers, shapes, colors and animals. So far he already can identify all letters and numbers na.  Alam niya din shapes and colors. Yun lang wala pa talagang nasasabi.
Dati din grabe syang mag hand flap. Ngayon halos wala na pero yung tip toeing meron pa.
