4:36 I have a 3 yr old. He has bad gut health, has to make food changes & move towards veggies which he hates. How can I introduce veggies w/out a smoothie option? He has major yeast belly Any suggestions?

13:42 I have a job interview coming up soon how do I mask so that I seem normal so people can't tell something off with me??? Please

23:40 Special needs guy (35m) has crush me (20m) and won’t leave me alone When I started the job back in August I would push carts in the parking lot and even then he would stick to me like glue. I now work as a cashier in the store but he still hangs around me even helping me by bagging people’s stuff even though I didn’t ask him to. At first I didn’t mind him and was nice to him but now he thinks we’re best friends and follows me to my car when leaving. Every time we see each other around he always says hi even if we literally just did this 30 seconds prior. He always tells me to pull my mask down so he can see my face and asks to hang out outside of work. What really makes me uncomfortable now is that sometimes when saying bye to each other he says “I love you” quietly but I can still hear him, and he tries to go for physical contact. I even spot him watching me when I’m in my car on my break. I try ignoring him but I can’t really do that when he’s breathing down my neck. I don’t know if I should be direct with him and tell him to leave me alone cause I’m not sure if I’ll get written up/fired for being mean to him cause it has happened here before, but I don’t know the details. I really wish I was never nice to him in the first place cause I kinda brought this upon myself. I also don’t know what kind of disability he has.

34:22 I know you have previously addressed proper wiping for an 8 year old, but I have an 8th grader that still does not do it correctly. We have tried many reward systems, but it's just a matter of time before they stop working. He understands how and when we talk about it he just says he is being lazy. He is in regular ed with friends and afterschool activities. I can smell it as soon as he gets home. I'm scared he will be teased and cannot believe he hasn't already! He also struggles with other areas of personal hygiene (teeth and showering). He will go weeks without brushing his teeth (says it's 'unnecessary" and throws tantrums on shower day. Again, have tried rewarding him after completion. Why are these tasks so difficult for him? Any tips would be greatly appreciated! PS.. he has a typically developing younger and older brothers that model proper hygiene for him. How do we make him care?

38:58 I feel SO bad about this... should I though? So, my son gets in home therapy and he actually really loves it. However, a while back I had to tell the main lady at the office that one woman really wasn't working out. she was really a cool person, but she wasn't actually doing anything with my son but sitting there and playing on her phone. so i said it wasn't working... nbd. Now, though... he has three that come over and he loves them, they play with him, we've seen great strides in many aspects of his life... well... they just included a 4th person and to be quite frank, she's rude and disrespectful to my whole household.

48:50 My son is 9 yes old autistic , lately he has been acting different, sexually, he acts out physically grinding , at first I thought he was exploring , but now he seems to call names , he  says  nasty words, and he wants me to kiss him or he push his my head down. I am not married at this time and no man is coming to my house for him to see this behavior. He his visits his dad (everyday), I asked dad if he has any thing to say about that and he said, no he wouldn’t see any thing like that. I am so confused to is this normal or should I be concerned.

54:10 Good morning, my almost 11 year old has high functioning ASD. One of our biggest challenges is his false/exaggerated memories of events. They are always negative, never positive. For example, we will bring him to basketball (which he loves and always excited to go) and he will report how awful practice was and how much he hates it, and we "make him do things he hates" but then 2 days later he is back to being excited to go to practice and runs inside. He does this for most activities.

4:53 good morning I send some information I feel way better got a month 1 week off work I needed time to care for my mental health i lasted worked Thursday January 26, 2022 & going to work on Tuesday March 22, 2022 with a bunch medical appts & dentist I wish fix my chart nasty flaw for life or death situations on all platforms across USA. THERE IS NO BACK SPACE KEY GET TO YOUR LAB TEST RESULTS PLEASE CAN REPORT IT TO ANYONE TO THE DOCTORS TO THE HR & CEO STAFF :)

Where do I go to report Doctors?

11:48 My son's teeth forms plague quiet often, it's because he doesn't let me brush it properly at night. I hate exposing him to dental clinic more often but I can't I recently noticed he forms plagues again. Is everybody else has the same issue like me? Dental offices are full toxicity as they use different chemicals. I am not sure what to do, any suggestion please?

20:20 What about the dental instruments, I heard they are made of aluminum and my son's test shows high toxicity so this is another concern for me putting the aluminum instruments in his mouth more often? what is your thought?

23:41 My son is 8 and he is going to an inclusive school with a shadow. And He is scream when He does not get his way. He has found a new way to communicate what He needs by yelling Help me. What can we do so He can stops this behavior? Thank you.

He is functionally verbal not conversational yet.

He also squeeze the shadows hands and my hands very hard when He is upset and frustrated.

30:49 Hello, so happy to have you both. I have a question about my 11yr old son with autism, he’s obsessed with toilets and hand dryer, when we go out he wants to use the bathroom more than once and If we go to different places he wants to use all the bathroom available to him, it can get hard because some days I just have enough time to run in and out of a place. If he can’t use it he’ll get mad.

He can hold his pee for a very long time so I know sometimes he does not need to go, I let him go at least once when we go out sometimes two times. He draws the toilets and knows the different brands.

When we sometimes don’t let him go more then once he’ll get mad and say I’m still going to use the bathroom, or if I go use it by myself what happens, he says it in a threatening kind of way. Sometime

It’s very hard to just go out to more then one place. He says he loves toilets and hand dryers. How can we help with these obsessive thing that is also needed, thanks in advance.

37:43 Hello, thank you for your work and what you do, my son is 9yrs old, diagnosed with Autism since he was 3 and we moved from North Carolina to Philadelphia area, and we are looking for ABA Tharapy, do you have a facility in Philadelphia area?

40:27 My son just diagnosed 3 months ago at 7 even though it’s been obvious he is Autistic and severe ADHD. Now trying to get him services is a challenge the school isn’t providing ABA or OT to him 1:1.

The medical side says he can’t get the amount of services needed as the school has to do the school behaviors but they aren’t what can I do to get him what he needs and has been robbed of?

45:49 my ten year old won't poop on the toilet what can I do?

51:41 how to deal with escape behavior ? it could be any where any situation mostly the escape behavior is they are not interested in and that could be a learning experience where care giver wants to teach

55:18 How can I teach my son to play with others? it is a nightmare on playground, he is pushing others kids he will be 4in a week

4:53 good morning I send some information I feel way better got a month 1 week off work I needed time to care for my mental health i lasted worked Thursday January 26, 2022 & going to work on Tuesday March 22, 2022 with a bunch medical appts & dentist I wish fix my chart nasty flaw for life or death situations on all platforms across USA. THERE IS NO BACK SPACE KEY GET TO YOUR LAB TEST RESULTS PLEASE CAN REPORT IT TO ANYONE TO THE DOCTORS TO THE HR & CEO STAFF :)

Where do I go to report Doctors?

11:48 My son's teeth forms plague quiet often, it's because he doesn't let me brush it properly at night. I hate exposing him to dental clinic more often but I can't I recently noticed he forms plagues again. Is everybody else has the same issue like me? Dental offices are full toxicity as they use different chemicals. I am not sure what to do, any suggestion please?

20:20 What about the dental instruments, I heard they are made of aluminum and my son's test shows high toxicity so this is another concern for me putting the aluminum instruments in his mouth more often? what is your thought?

23:41 My son is 8 and he is going to an inclusive school with a shadow. And He is scream when He does not get his way. He has found a new way to communicate what He needs by yelling Help me. What can we do so He can stops this behavior? Thank you.

He is functionally verbal not conversational yet.

He also squeeze the shadows hands and my hands very hard when He is upset and frustrated.

30:49 Hello, so happy to have you both. I have a question about my 11yr old son with autism, he’s obsessed with toilets and hand dryer, when we go out he wants to use the bathroom more than once and If we go to different places he wants to use all the bathroom available to him, it can get hard because some days I just have enough time to run in and out of a place. If he can’t use it he’ll get mad.

He can hold his pee for a very long time so I know sometimes he does not need to go, I let him go at least once when we go out sometimes two times. He draws the toilets and knows the different brands.

When we sometimes don’t let him go more then once he’ll get mad and say I’m still going to use the bathroom, or if I go use it by myself what happens, he says it in a threatening kind of way. Sometime

It’s very hard to just go out to more then one place. He says he loves toilets and hand dryers. How can we help with these obsessive thing that is also needed, thanks in advance.

Watch as our host Shannon Penrod and Dr. Doreen discuss ABA vs School, some potentially triggering situations when dealing with family or the school system and much more. Don’t miss the useful advice!

3:26 We want to start ABA for my kid but is this ok to miss school? Schools ends at 3pm and my kid is so tired by that time. Moreover, my kid goes to a public school and I don’t know how much they work with him. It’s like a black hole.

9:29 My daughter is seven and autistic, partially verbal. During high stress situations she goes mute. Anyway, she went to my sister’s house all happy on Friday. It was a whole family get together, I had to run and deliver some packages, I was gone for like half an hour. Anyway, when I got back, she was in different clothes and very clearly upset. I asked what happened and my sister told me she wet herself after she couldn't have a chocolate pop. Now, here’s the thing with my girl; she would never wet herself purposefully. She has extreme anxiety surrounding her toileting, to the point of therapy. I don’t know what this anxiety is caused by, but it’s severe. She was clearly very distressed, so I just took her home. In the car she broke down sobbing but was unable to tell me what happened. As soon as we got home, she took herself upstairs and put a pull up on (pull ups being accessible for her is a recommendation, so she has more control over herself) and has been super cuddly since. She hasn’t been using her AAV devices or signing at all. She has two therapists and she's due to see them both in the next week to see if they'll be able to help me understand what happened. Family have been awful. My sister, mainly, who is still claiming that she was being a brat and is doing this all for attention. I've since told every family member they will not be seeing her or me until the truth has been told. Am I the butthead here? I am the dad in this situation.

17:40 My son (8) only uses his verbal skills to mand for things and answer very very simple questions like How are you doing? and He answers: I am fine. But how can I help him to start a conversation?

25:05 We are in Canada unfortunately the government does not provide Speech therapy for kids more than very limited few sessions. How can we as parents help a child like 8 years old with Speech? 30:37 Good morning. my son is almost 4 and has good language. He’s not going to school yet and he’s not doing peer play. I’m giving ABA therapy at home. How do I produce peer play?

35:25 My Family hates me for my Autism and exploited me for my Autism and bad mouth me...My nephew is 6 and have Autism and they treat him bad for it.

41:20 They don’t slow down their brain to understand sometimes and because we are literally thinking . We need people to listen more. I think it’s time to stand tall and be who we are.

43:04 This may be triggering. I’m a father to a lovely 17-year-old daughter named Cameron. She was diagnosed with level 2 autism (mid functioning). She is nonverbal and uses her phone’s text to speech. She’s a junior in high school this year and she functions at a 7th grade level. Her teacher who I will call Mr. Smith started working at Cam’s school last year during Cam’s sophomore year. I was concerned about the mention of him in every sentence being typed out on her phone. Recently I found out that Mr. Smith has been giving Cam 11th grade level work simply because he believes since she is in 11th grade, she can do it. He’s been restraining Cam, strapping her to the seat and sometimes tying up her arms and strapping them to her lap so she can’t flap them around or jump since she does that a lot. Mr. Smith threatened to call Cam’s wrestling coach and basketball coach to take her out of her sports. This makes my blood boil.

50:47 My oldest is autistic and has been diagnosed with separation anxiety and demand avoidance. It seems to us that he is in a constant state of "fight or flight" sometimes even if we are just snuggling on the couch (snuggling with someone while reading a book or playing a board game is like his idea of heaven). My wife has a background in special ed, we believe very strongly in respecting children as people, in playfulness, setting limits with warmth and compassion, etc. Some of the behavioral approaches that have been recommended to us seem antithetical to those values or seem impossible to implement outside of a very controlled therapeutic environment (which a home is not).

0:00 Intro

4:17 My son is 8 and I want to know if recovery is still something to hope for. My son was diagnosed at 2 . At that time we were dealing with delayed speech. Six months ago he started stuttering. His behaviors are up and down. He is gluten and dairy free and has been on biomedical treatment for 3 years. Good behavior at school but aggression toward his younger sister and sometimes me. He wants to play with other kids, but doesn’t know how. He is behind academically. He does well and then regressed. Please help. I want to meet adults who have recovered to know how we can get there too.

15:55 My son is 8 and is have been prescribed sertraline 50mg half a pill. To help with his anxiety He still has anxious behaviors like grinding his teeth and obsessing over his therapy swing at home. My question is He has taking his sertraline for a week now. His Neuropediatrucian prescribed it and it is the first time He is taking a med.

21:36 Beautiful. But sometimes I think things would have been easy if it was solely dependent on us. But its so much related to our kids, their mood , their behavior and their health. I completely agree with the answers, thank you and I am putting my efforts toward diet and supplements but I can't afford hours of ABA and more than an hour of speech a week so what should I do in that case? The autistic adults who have recovered or indistinguishable from their peers, not all of those parents who be rich to afford hours of ABA so what other ways they helped their kids? I really love to know please.

30:16 OKAY SO SOMEONE PLEASE HELP I just had the most horrifying experience ever with my son who is 4 and autistic. We’re staying in a hotel as we are remodeling our home and our Ac/heat is currently down and we live in Florida and we are not built for the 30 degree weather. I accidentally fell asleep earlier with my son and daughter in the room, she fell asleep as well and he undid the latch and left. I woke up and he was gone and went into immediate panic and I called downstairs and he was there along with about 30 people and 2 police officers. There were a ton of kids with balloons so now he keeps wanting to go back down there. Is there anything I can buy to keep him in? I have no idea what to do. I put a heavy piece of furniture in front of the door that he some how can move?(he’s a huge 4 year old) it was just overall a horrifying experience and I am open to any suggestions at all. Thank you so much, I feel like the worst mom in the world right now.

37:03 Mom of twin boys - 2.5 years. We have been doing ABA for over year. Kids are doing really well. Verbal not conversational yet. We are contemplating sending them to school. What are the key indicators that will help us make this decision? I don’t want to waste their or my time by sending them to school.

43:35 Hello beautiful ladies , I got a TACA scholarship to see a maps doc .. any advice for my first visit? My son 7 yrs old ASD son is preverbal and has lots of sensory issues and he’s a picky eater.

49:04 Can you please emphasize on diet for autism Dr. Doreen? My son was on GAPS diet for about 1 and half and he improved but GAPS diet is so restrict and I felt bad every time my son asked for something that was out of his diet. On the other hand my husband also believed that it was more like a punishments' to put my son on a restricted diet. Now he is on GAPS plus diet, meaning he is having some grains that are not allowed in GAPS diet. But as I mentioned earlier his behavior is always up and down and he is 8 years old but far from recovery which worries me the most. Not sure what specific diet other parents, specially parents with recovered kids, followed? I appreciate a discussion on this please.

56:16 can you please name/recommend some great MAPS doctors? Do you accept new patients Dr. Doreen?

58:32 Does ABA work when there is also dual diagnosis of pathological demand avoidance? My daughter is 9, is this too late for ABA. We are in Ontario Canada where the conservative government has frozen funding.
