Don't miss this episode of Ask Dr. Doreen! The founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh answers questions about gut problems, Autism Recovery, Systematic Desensitization and more! Check it out!
06:32 - are gut problems prevalent for people like myself, I'm having a colonoscopy next month, I've heard all about gut biomes and stuff like that, I just want answers and should I refuse a colonoscopy.
13:00 - 3 year old grandson in Canada - Right now he is not verbal. He repeats a few words for example apple or banana but not clearly but he tries sometimes. It seems that he learns and thean he forgets. He has 9 hours ABA a week. I believe it is not enough but in Canada they believe that he is still very young and doesn’t need more. Recently he developed visual swimming. He constantly looks at a window, daylight or lights. Since he started doing this he doesn’t want to play with any toy. I cannot catch his attention at all; no eye contact, no play.
I hear you saying that your son recovered. How did you do that? How was your road to recovery? Did he have severe autism?
Is there a way to reduce his visual stimming and making him more attentive?

28:40 - would you recommend putting a 7 year old with moderate autism that is functionally verbal in a General Ed. class for half of the day in school?
34:00 - how would Dr. Doreen treat repetitive movements. its automatically reinforcing and hard for him to be aware of his movements. could you please tell us how you would reduce hand flapping behavior? its affecting his academics and he also has ADHD. Can you talk about continuing to follow a whole food diet and continuing organic and eating healthy.
