Hi Mommy Rain Here,

Aside from speech delay, is there any other "red flags" that you have noticed? Kasi if speech delay lang, I'm sure makakahabol siya once makapag-therapy ang son mo.  Limit tv and gadgets din and laging kausapin.

Hello Mommy MyAdie,

flapping of hands, saka yung hindi niya agad pag respond sa name calling, kelangan ko pang lakasan ang boses ko or sumigaw para mapansin niya ako... grabe mag tantrums (siguro dahil nga speech delayed, hindi niya masabi ang gusto niyang sabihin, kaya dinadaan sa iyak).... pag may gusto siyang gawin katulad pag namimili kami at ako ang naglagay ng mga napamili namin sa cart, magwawala na siya, kelangan ulitin namin un na siya ang maglalagay para lang mapatahan siya.... alam mo nga Mommy MyAdie, until now lagi ko parin siyang tinitignan at hoping and praying na katulad ng sabi mo pag speech delayed lang makakahabol siya, kasi tinatry ko rin siyang titigan at may eye contact naman siya pero limited lang.. pag nakakakita kami ng airplane, sinasabi ko where's the airplane, at ituturo naman niya sabay sabi "epleyn"....
with regards to tv and gadgets, we have started to limit him kasi napansin ko rin yan, madalas ang tantrums niya at hindi maganda ang attention span niya pag may hawak siyang gadgets. nagsisisi nga ako bakit ko pa siya hinayaang humawak ng gadgets... for 4 years, now ko lang narealize yan...
Sorry for the long reply ha, I just want to let other mothers like us na marealize na ang exposure sa gadgets pag sobra sobra talagang masama...
I'm really thankful, i found this thread... talagang helpful for me to start and go on.... lagi kasi akong umiiyak lately pag umiiyak na yung panganay ko kasi hindi niya masabi ang gusto niya.lagi ko siyang sinasabihan na sabihin ang gusto niya para maintindihan ko...

Hi Mommy Rain Here,
Sadly, the 2 red flags that you mentioned that are apparent now in your son are the 2 things also that I noticed in my child 2 Ĺ years ago. Meron din syang spinning of wheels and tiptoeing. But the good thing is, nung nag start na kaming mag therapy, nawala na yung flapping and now he consistently responds when I call him. My child also has eye contact but then, the sustainability is the issue. Titingin pero di matagal, but I know that he is listening.
My son underwent therapy when he was 1year 10mos and when he turned 3, nagsimula din akong matakot kasi I was thinking na baka hindi maging verbal. But when he turned 3.5years, he started to speak though not yet conversational.  And he learned to read on his own.
So never lose hope.  Kahit naisip mo na late ka nang marealize na possible na may special need ang son mo. Whatís more important is alam mo na where to start.  And a tip that I can give you is when he starts his sessions na, ensure that what is being taught by your therapists is reinforced sa bahay.  Kasi di ba 1-4 hrs lang sila a week sa therapy pero sa bahay dapat talaga ang training.  Plus, lots of prayers kasi nothing is impossible with the Lord.

Hello Mommy MyAdie,
Isa pang napansin ko din yung sustainability ng eye contact niya, hindi rin matagal... saka hindi agad niya agad makukuha yung command sakanya... Nawa makakuha na kami ng appointment for dev ped...
Thank you!

Update:

...I never went to another dev ped for a 2nd opinion.  Tinagap ko na lang ang assessement niya... maybe at the back of my mind, I know na tama siya...

Unfortunately, we have to lessen his ABA session to 1x a week only (sometimes hindi pa natutuloy). We also stopped his Speech therapy due to unavailable slot since full time na siya sa school and complete with tutor pa after his class.

He's currently not doing that well in his subjects in school, specially sa math, failing lagi.  Seems like may attention and comprehension problem siya... but the teachers were not recommending him to be transferred out, yet... but we might end up looking elsewhere if his current school finds him "not suitable" under their standards...although they are fully aware of his ASD.  :'( :'( :'(

I no longer know if we should still push him to excel in his current school or just give up... one side of me wants to but the other side still won't give in... bottom line, I seemed to still be in denial... ironically, after fully accepting kuya's situation, kay bunso, I can't?

 :'( :'( :'(

@Mommy Darling!
Hi! I believe patignan na si Bunso sa Dev Ped for earlier identification at ma-assess agad for timely treatment or referrals... Maganda parin na Dev Ped/other skilled healthcare providers ang mag recommend sayo ng dapat gawin or mga daily exercises para makatulong sa locomotor improvement ni Bunso mo... Hoping and praying that it is just delayed and maka-cope up agad si Bunso mo sa locomotor devt niya.

hi mommies and dadies. I am newbie here..

My son is showing signs of ASD and we are really devastated and at lost.. We are to consult to a development pedia next Tuesday to know the reality and how to help our son. I am still positive and would not want to lose hope but when I look at my son, I feel like crying and asking why.

he's 3and 3 months old and still not talking though he says jollibee  "kabi" every time he sees him..  He doesn't respond when we call him but he can follow simple instruction like "get your slippers". he does some of the signs like walking in tip toe and spinning in circles but not really often. I noticed kapag excited sya tsaka po eto nagyayari..

I read and search about ASD and I think our next step is the OT and speech therapy..  though depends on what the doctor will say.. Can anyone recommend and help us with this please?

Is there really an improvement considering that our son is still not really talking?

Thanks and appreciate your help..

Hi daddi101,
Your devpedia will mostly recommend your child to undergo OT and Speech therapy.  Usually OT muna to improve focus and increase sitting time before speech.  Donít lose hope. Iíve known a few who eventually talked when they turned 4 to 4.5 years. I too felt my child will not be able to speak. But at 3.5 years old, he started to talk, sing and read all at the same time.  I never taught him to read, he learned on his own.  I noticed lang with my child, before he was 3, he can babble and say a few syllables so I guess if you child does that, makakasalita din siya. Just trust in the Lord, all in His perfect time.  Samahan ng maraming prayers, it really works. Plus always talk to your child. Kahit feeling mo di siya nakikinig, lagi lang kausapin. Play music also, kahit mga nursery rhymes muna tsaka action songs. Engage him in action songs. For kids with ASD, itís key they know how to imitate kasi thatís how they will learn. Ang anak ko, di madunong manggaya dati pero pinagtsagaan namin sa action songs.  Everyday. Hanggang natuto siya manggaya.  Though at 4.5years old, di pa talaga siya conversational pero looking back, ang laki na sobra ng improvement.  Basta prayers, coupled with all the help that you can extend to your child Ė therapy sessions, attention sa house, continuity of whatís being taught in his sessions sa bahay, and lots of patience, youíll see improvements later on.

Thanks mam MyAdie. we have confirmed that yesterday with the Dev pedia, ASD. We immediately researched and look for therapy centers and tomorrow will his first day. We were saddened but not that much as I am already expecting but deep inside I was hoping na developmental delay lang. but that's it, confirmed. mahirap but I think it's best for the early intervention to kick in. I still believe na once natuto syang magsalita and makipagcommunicate, everything will follow.

Salamat po ulet..
