Thank you MommyJanice, di mo lang alam na medyo gumaan ang loob ko dahil narandaman kong hindi ako nag-iisa sa ganitong situation.

Taga Cauayan City, Isabela ako, familiar ako sa place mo dahil sa Bayombong ako nag college. 8-10 hours ang travel time mula dito to Manila. Mommyjanice just want to ask kung lahat ba ng symptoms na sinabi ko present din sa anak mo when he/she was 2yrs old?

As of now full time wife and mommy ako and about to start to work on October. Bothered talaga ako kasi 3 days palang ako nagbabasa dito sa forum at napansin kong present sa anak ko yung ibang signs. Di ako makatulog, 3 days na ding akong depress at umiiyak kapag kaming mag-ina lang ang nasa kwarto. What made me more frustrated kasi yung pamangkin ko na 2 months older sa anak ko is nasasabi na niya ang Mommy, daddy, kapag umuulan pupunta yun sa bintana at sasabihing raining meaning may awareness na siya sa environment niya. nasasabi or napo-point na niya yung parts ng face. Minsan sumasabay na siya rhyme ng nursery songs kahit di naiintindihan. Akala ko noon advance lang talaga yung pamangkin ko.

Ang dami kong questions sa sarili ko? sa kinikita ng asawa ko kasyang kasya lang para sa aming pamilya. I need to work para makapag-ipon at mabili namin ang mga "wants" naming mag-asawa . But now pano ko yung magtatrabaho kung alam kong mas ngayon kailangan ng anak ko. Mas importante ang anak ko kahit sa sino at ano pa man, pero di talaga kakayanin kung aasa lang kami sa sweldo ng asawa ko. I feel guilty!

Kaya naisip ko na sana may Dev Ped na malapit dito sa place ko para makapagwork ako at maipakita ko ang anak ko sa Doctor. Gusto kong mapa OT, ABA or ST ang anak ko ngayon palang pero almost lahat nasa Metro Manila.

Sana delayed lang ang anak ko. Humihingi ako sa Panginoon ng strength para malampasan namin ito. Gusto ko na ulit marinig na tawagin ako "MAMAMA" for mama at "ADDI" for daddy. kasi nawala na ang yun.

SMU ka din ba?dun kasi ako graduate e.

Dati, hirap ding magsalita, tapos pinapaikot tsaka pinaglilinya niya lahat ng laruan niya (actually kahit ngayon,ganun siya)Pero ngayon, grabe na improvement.Lalo na nung pumapasok na siya sa preschool.

mahirap nga maghanap ng Devped jan.pero,kung ako sayo, subukan mo muna siyang ipaasses sa pedia mo.Kasi ganun ginawa ko dati.Sabi ng Pedia ko,la naman daw siya nakikitang kakaiba.Baka sadyang delayed lang  siya talaga o kaya ikaw lang ang paranoid (gaya ko dati)which is normal lang naman yata sa magulang ang ganyan.Yung anak ko kasi,yaya lang dati kasama maghapon.Pag binuksan yung TV,maghapon na yun at di man lang siya kakasausapin.barney pa laging pinapanood kaya nalate talaga siya magsalita.

Try mo magtanong tanong sa malalaking hospital gaya ng De vera sa Santiago at baka meron dun.Wag mo masyado isipin yan.masyado pang bata anak mo.Malay mo late lang talaga development niya.

Opo, SMU 2006 graduate ako.

Napa-paranoid ako kasi binasa ko itong buong thread na yung mga bata  na diagnosed na merong ASD just like my son's age. Minsan tuloy sa sobrang dami kong nababasa at dumadami din ang alam ko mas lalo akong napa-praning. Pero alam mo Mommyjanice nung nakapagbasa ako dito sa forum I became more patient sa pag-aalaga sa kanya, mag-uumpisa palang siyang mag 'muryot" aaluin ko na siya.

Isa pa nagpa-pacifier parin siya untill now dahil hirap siyang makatulog kapag walang ganun. gustong gusto ko ng tanggalin ang pacifier pero nakakaawa naman kapag alam kong antok na antok at may kasamang pagmamakaawa ang tingin niya sa akin. Mga mommies out there nakaka delay  ba sa speech development ang pacifier?

Hello mommies, newbie pa lang po ako. Share ko lang po situation namin. My firstborn is turning 5yo this month and I just gave birth to my 2nd child last May. Nagkakaproblem kami ngayon sa panganay ko dahil parang since nanganak ako parang lumevel up ang kulit niya. super active niya, di mapakali at super impulsive. Kung ano maisip niya gagawin niya agad. Minsan nga daw sa class bigla daw tatayo sya at iikot ikot, pag tinanong sya kung bakit niya ginawa un wala sya masabi reason... Tapos ayaw niya na natatalo sya. pag d niya makuha gusto niya magwawala.

What frustrates me most pa is when I ask him naman kung tama or mali ginagawa niya, alam niya naman.. Ang masama pa ang galling niya magreason out. yung mga explanations namin sa kanya bumabalik sa amin. Example, sinabi namin na it breaks our heart na bad sya tapos maya maya pag may d sya nagustuhan yun na ang dialogue niya...Malambing naman sya pero yung lambing niya minsan e nakakasakit. yung baby brother niya grabe niya panggigilan. Iniisip namin nung una baka mali pagdicipline namin, we tried face the wall, palo sa pwet at kain ng bawang pag super naughty sya pero parang no effect lahat sa kanya.

We took the Vanderbilt assessment and ang result dun - Hyperactive/impulsive and Oppositional Defiant Disorder sya.  Super sad kami mag asawa. Don't know na how to handle it lalo na wala kami yaya at 2 lang kami nagaalaga sa mga kids.  Feeling ko tuloy I did this to him, mali pagpapalaki ko sa kanya...

Next step namin is to consult a dev ped, super helpful yung mga nababasa ko dito. Thanks guys...

My 2y/o might have autism spectrum disorder!
« Reply #38 on: September 16, 2013, 11:39:23 pm »

my son just turned 2 last september 2. a few months back, we already noticed that he doesn't look right away when his name is called especially when he is watching tv. i thought he might be just distracted w/ the tv show. i even have to turn his face towards me so he could look me in the eyes. i researched online on the symptoms of autism and it is 50/50..means he has half of the symptoms only - no eye contact, doesnt respond to name, verbal delay...but he DOES NOT have these symptoms - not wanting to be cuddled (he actually loves that!), doesn't smile when he looks at u (he has a very smiling face and loves to laugh), is very independent on his actions (he brings us to where he wants to go or if he wants something)..

i'm actually afraid to consult a developmental pediatrician because i dont want to find out the truth (if it really is!)..

i want to know if there are moms out there w/ the same situation? hope to hear from u!

Not all symptoms will show kagaya ng sa anak ko. We've been undergoing OT already for 3 months now, my son is now 26 months. Laki ng improvement so i was hoping come 2nd assessment sasabihin ni Dra speech delayed na lang. but apparently, if inconsistent pa ang response to name calling and fleeting eye contact pa din, kahit na yung gross and fine motor skills niya and problem solving skills at par sa age niya, ASD pa din ang binigay na diagnosis. Also an indicator to look at is this - does your child show shared enjoyment? yung pag interested sya sa isang bagay, for example book or toy, he'll go to you and show you? Yan kasi, isang factor din na wala ang kid ko kaya ASD ang diagnosis.

Iba sis yung punta sya sayo to show something pero kasi hihingi sya ng tulong like, ipapa open for example. Ang anak ko pag humawak ng book he'll go straight to my lap pero he'll not show me a picture that he likes or parang hihingi sya ng story about the picture.  ang anak ko din walang initiative na magyaya na maglaro sa ibang bata pero pag isinali mo sya, sasali sya.

Hi Happy-mom 11,

The worst thing we can do as moms is to wait. Ang kalaban natin dito is time because the earlier na mapa assess mo ang anak mo , the better kasi mas mabibigyan sya ng tamang therapy if kailangan. I am very thankful dahil before 2 nakita ko na din ang symptoms. Parehas na parehas tayo, yung iba wala sya. Ang prominent sa kanya fleeting eye contact and inconsistent response to name calling. Ayaw ni dra ng inconsistent response to name calling kaya ASD pa din ang diagnosis niya.
I i were you, consult a devpedia kasi sila talaga makaka assess ng mabuti sa baby mo.  Early intervention is KEY.  i underwent the  same phase as you do, akala ko nga dati if ASD pa din ang diagnosis na ibibigay, mas matatanggap ko na kasi parang hinanda ko na yung sarili ko. pero pag andun ka na, masakit pa din syempre kakambal nun yung worries mo. But more important is we have to accept na kung merong autism, be it. It doesn't mean that end of teh world na.  Look at it this way. If just in case meron ngang autism, so what? label lang yan for you to know pano mo iha harness ang strengths ng anak mo. Anong approach to use para ma overcome nila ang delays nila.  And the earlier we get help. the better.  Worst is for us to be in denial. Ako kasi lagi kong naiisip dati, mahihirapan ako. Pero naisip ko, ako ang mahihirapan pero hindi ba mas dapat anak natin ang focus natin and not ourselves.  And im sure as moms we do not love our children any less just because they have a condition. My 2 cents.

Hi! It mY not easy for us parents to accept whenever our child is suspected or diagnosed, but solutions for these are available. Basta, talk to other people, it will a lot. Really.
