9:18 With events of catatonic My teenage x 2 in last 3 years Is this a medical problem or medication related?
 11:22 Negative Self-Talk
  Good morning. My 13 year old son uses a lot of negative self talk...I'm terrible at this. I failed! I'm the worst one...etc. We've tried ignoring it because I think he does it for attention, but he still says negative statements about himself all the time. I actually think he likes to say them. What else can we do?
 20:37 What is a good medication for anxiety
 I am Trying to get away from medications and trying THC w/ CBD, but I don’t want to prevent myself from getting a job either
 It’s unfortunate that social media isn’t helping. It’s better to have a face to face conversation
 30:22 Trying New Foods
  My daughter is on the spectrum (she’s almost 7) and I can not get her to try new foods without a complete meltdown. She will scream, cry and throw the food. If I do get her to try something new, she’ll automatically gag and spit it out. She only eats crunchy textures (chips, dry cereal, crackers, pretzels) and other sugary junk foods. How can I get her to try new things? I’ve taken her to the doctors (more than once) and that did nothing… the doctor wanted her to try new foods with her there (the same thing I’ve tried) but charged almost $200 to do it each time so I canceled. Any advice would be appreciated.
 39:12 The child follows what the mother puts before her… remove chips and any sugars, the child should be introduced to a different diet.
 45:45 Potty Training (Prompting)
 Hi. My 8 year old son with Autism will only poop if I tell him to sit on the toilet. If I don't, he will hold it and I will eventually have to give him something to help him go and it's usually a disaster. How to get him to be independent? He goes to regular ed school and does well academically.
 48:07 My child is 3. As we move towards the fall, she would move towards intensive ABA or have him go to school?
 55:27 Is it worth it to try the Gluten Free Casein Free Diet?
 I have a 4 year old diagnosed with autism who has dark circles underneath his eyes, is it worth it to try the GFCF diet? Are we risking anything by trying it?

Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, joins us again for another episode of Ask Dr. Doreen! Dr. Doreen answers viewer questions about school refusal, mouthing, aggression and more, tune in!

1:05 School Refusal

Can you please talk about how to deal with school refusal – kids and teens who refuse to go to school, tantrum to get out of it, hide, etc.

11:28 Mouthing

How can I stop mouthing for a 3 year old who knows not to mouth but sneaks mouthing when you are not looking. Mouths squishy toys and hard plastic objects BCBA recommended "chewlery" allowing child to Bite that then fading it but advised could take a long time to fade Said there is no other sensory outlet for mouthing than providing a chew toy, crunchy foods, and toothbrush. I have been blocking the behavior and verbal “no”

18:05 Aggressive Teenagers

What's the best way to deal with aggression in a teenager? My son’s automatic reaction is to hit out when things don't go his way. He instantly regrets it, it's just an automatic response to anything he feels is unfair. Consequences escalate his behavior. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

20:32 Developmental Delay Vs Autism

Hi Dr. Doreen. I am living in the UAE and a mother of 2 year old identical twins. We first saw signs of autism at 13 months old. Given we don’t have any financial support through insurance - we did a lot of therapy ourselves and later hired a RBT. They are currently doing ABA 5 hours per week each. They have progressed really well. Can mand, tact, answer simple questions. Really good with academics - numbers alphabets - reading 3 letter words. They are still behind in social and play skills. Seeing their great progress and their ability to learn so quickly- I sometimes wonder if they are just developmentally delayed or is this autism? What is the possibility that they are just delayed.

29:08 How can I support family with caring for my son after my surgery in August. I will not be able to care for him for 2 weeks.

34:50 Potty Training Regression

5 year old regression in potty training. Do I have to start all over? He’s fighting hard to not go to the potty and going # 1 in his pants after being fully potty trained. When I say fighting hard I’m talking major protesting tantrums to not go to the potty, and then going in his pants

45:16 could it be it's difficulty to detoxifying because they have lack of good bacteria in the bowel? They should start to do tests on autistic individually because of the wide spectrum  and high level of iron would you suggest a specific diet? I tried t0 do a detoxifying diet but she was not eating at all.

51:36 (Response to the Potty Training Question)

Potty trained for a year, going by himself. Ever since school got out

He’s been doing this ever since school got out for summer

I think he wants both to control over his environment and he doesn’t want to stop what he’s doing
