Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is answering viewer questions about aggression, potty training, uncontrollable laughter and more! Watch Ask Dr. Doreen LIVE Tuesday's at 10am PT! 

#AutismExpert #Autism #AutismPodcast https://www.autismnetwork.com/category/ask-dr-doreen/

https://www.tiktok.com/@askdrdoreen?

7:57 I want to ask this question: Please can the group tell me, after you have had a diagnosis. Why have I been told by family friends and partners, your normal. You don’t have Autism?

14:02 Hi Dr. Doreen. What services are out there when your child has graduated from ABA, is getting bigger (12 years old) and still displays aggressive behaviors? How do we keep him and everyone else safe?

27:03 Hi Doreen My son attends center based ABA it's been a year he has started, but we still has got problem with his stimming and lack of Independent play, I can't control his stim. obsession with fans.

37:25 I was thinking about doing a respite exchange program for single parents. Because gosh, it is HARD when you don’t/can’t qualify for respite. I have 3 special needs kids and new to the state of TX with ZERO help.

39:04 I have a question concerning couples on the spectrum. If one individual recognizes that they’re on the spectrum, And is figuring out their own triggers and corks, but the other individual does not acknowledge this is sudden realization, and continues to treat and converse with the other individual as if there is no processing issue when it comes to emotion. Issues like tone, not hearing exactly what the other person is saying, or internalizing what they’re saying .. I.e. imposter syndrome, or goes catatonic during high pressure debates, is becoming an extreme issue.

44:10 Hi Doren, My son is 4 years old, he has phases of 6-7 uncontrollable laughter everyday ? Is it sugar or something else?

48:12 Hi Shannon. What do u think it’s mora helpful ABA or SON RISE? Specifically, To deal with an aggressive child.

51:35 Hello, just going to put a warning that this is going to be TMI and a little bit gross, I hope it’s okay. I am 19F and I have a twin brother who is autistic and non verbal. My mother is his primary career, and I moved back home last year to help her out as my brother has gotten older and bigger than her which can sometimes be difficult for her. From us being young children to around 16, my brother was perfectly using the toilet by himself, for pooping and peeing. Just to add, he also really likes the sound of flushing and coldness of the toilet seat surface, so he often flushes the toilet just to hear the sound and he might sit on it fully clothed whilst playing games which is not really an issue. Around 16, he started pooping on the floor in the bathroom instead of the toilet. Initially we thought he was constipated and struggling to go so my mum started looking closely at his toileting routine and took him to the GP and everything was said to be fine. After a week or so of doing this we tried having him sit on the toilet (as in watching him about to go and telling him verbally to sit down) which resulted in massive meltdowns including self harming. He also stopped wiping himself with tissue afterwards. This was three years ago and since then it gotten considerably worse especially as my mum was afraid of him hurting himself if we made him sit on the toilet. He is now 19 and now poops on the floor anywhere in the house when we’re not looking, and occasionally will pee on carpet etc. Most recently my mother had some friends over, and she assumed my brother was in his room watching TV or drawing. A guest got up to go to the kitchen for some water and my brother had left a particularly liquid-y surprise for us on the kitchen floor.

Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is answering viewer questions about ABA and How to find good ABA, taking medication & more! Tune in and check it out!

 

5:40 My sister [35F] is leaving her husband and is upset. I want to help, but I am autistic. What things should I [28M] try to do to help her feel better? I'm also a hikikomori/agoraphobic/social recluse, which makes things harder. She's staying with me and our parents with her two sons at the moment. [8M] and [4M]. She was with her husband [38M] for about 19 years, and they got married about 10 years ago. No-one's told me the details on why she's leaving him, but she's told our parents. They understand these things more, I think, and would give way better advice than I could since I haven't had a girlfriend before. All I know is that 'He did something silly' and that they've struggled in their marriage for the past few months. Today I made pasta as dinner for me and her. I've also looked after her kids at points in the past two days! I'm not sure if her kids have been told what's going on, but the oldest one isn't stupid and must know something isn't right. I guess I am asking for general advice on how to help, but how I should react to things. I am sad because I have known him most of my life, and we regularly have spoken about computer games we've been playing. Does this mean I should remove him as a friend on PlayStation Network? How should I help my sister in ways I probably haven't thought of?

13:26 hi Dr. doreen here is a question. my mom broke her wrist on Wednesday and my stepdad has had to take a leave of absence due to it. I don’t feel like I’m doing a good job coping with this. i am caring more about my routines like jersey mikes on Tuesdays. I need help handling this better. this is causing my family a lot of hassle. please help me be a better son and to do better

let me add on. my stepdad is also helping me a lot as well. and he is one of those people that doesn’t get autism in general. he is a southern person who believes in rules. I want to help him as well. please help my family. also, with my sister in college and doing her externship soon sucks. plus, her diagnosis of bipolar 1 I’m also afraid that she will go manic again. sorry for the bother.

21:08 What are some questions to ask when looking for a good ABA provider?

27:58 How do we find out what providers are only interested in what is best for our child and doing things in a “fair” way.

33:33 What is ABA?

39:51 My 4.5 y.o. speaks mostly in 4-7 word sent., can answer many intraverbal questions (including many how & why), & has a good albeit still delayed vocab. But he still struggles to have conversations.

When is a reasonable expectation for when he could converse? He just wants to talk about his interests, which is fine, but I also want to have a conversation someday.

Oh, he asks lots of different questions to us too (although that only happened in the past few months). It's trouble sustaining back and forth.

48:20 What’s the best way to get my son from using a sippy cup? He’s two years old and three months

49:37 My 3 yr. old is not feeling well at all he has had a horrible runny nose and a wet cough now for 2 days ...he just looks miserable and I haven’t been able to help him .....just checked his temperature and it says 100.6 ...i just can’t get him to swallow any type of medicine ...and its making me so sad ....he only drinks water and milk so I’ve tried mixing medicine in there but he notice it so he won’t take it ...he doesn't eat apple sauce or yogurt so i cant mix it in there ... he has an appointment tomorrow at 9 but i just wish i can get him to take medicine....how do u guys do it when your kids r sick and dont like medicine.

In this segment of Ask Dr. Doreen, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, BCBA-D Phd, discusses autism diagnosis, Hyperlexia, Trauma and more! Don't miss it!

6:56 Does it Get Better?

I’ve never posted but it’s getting so hard for me to deal with my son. I guess I’m just here to vent..sorry its so long and jumbled together. My son is 4 years old and we have an evaluation scheduled for Thursday with our developmental pediatrician. I know he is autistic but am hoping we get an actual diagnosis. He has a few stims that he does when he is excited or mad, he gets frustrated so easily and has meltdowns, he avoids eye contact, he likes to smash his face into us when he’s mad, he has trouble with transitions, he is verbal but doesn’t communicate.. I could go on. Does it get better? Will he speak in complete sentences? How do I exist w/o being miserable? Will we ever be able to do things as a family, like going to a pumpkin patch, going to an indoor play area, meeting Santa, etc? (We went to a pumpkin patch recently and omg it was horrible) Will he ever understand birthdays or Christmas? I feel so much guilt for not being happy with the children I have. I often wonder if this is karma. Or that maybe I was never supposed to have kids. (I went through 4 rounds of IVF for my son) I feel like the depression is ruining everything - my marriage, my connection with my kids (because lately I’ve just wanted to walk away rather than keep trying to engage) and my life. It’s hard to make friends as I am just triggered when I see their neurotypical children. My 2 special needs kids are not really interested in each other and it breaks my heart. This is not what I pictured. I have siblings and am very close with them. I guess my heart just breaks every day and I grieve the life that I know we will not have. Thanks for listening. I really hope things get better because I don’t know how to do this 10 years down the road.

25:05 Autism is neurodiversity then why it is treated as behavior problem?

33:21 I have a very specific question. Every allergy season my son gets super sick and he doesn’t know how to blow his nose, any tips?

36:43 Hi Dr Doreen, what is the correlation hyperlexia and autism? Is it a predictor of functioning level?

39:14 When my daughter was diagnosed with mild autism the therapist said her language delay was due to the autism and had nothing to do with cognitive impairment. He also said that she would catch up to her peers and I shouldn’t worry about it too much since her case is pretty mild. He did however recommend ABA therapy. When I was having the assessment interview with the ABA therapist she recommended 40 hours a week which is way higher than I assumed my daughter would need (since she has such a mild case), and she also said my daughter is at the level expected of an 18 month old. My daughter is 2.5. I really wasn’t expecting this. I know my daughter is behind but to hear that she’s like an 18 month old was jarring and I’m worried now that my daughter will have struggles beyond the challenges she’ll face being autistic. I guess I just don’t understand the huge discrepancies between the two therapists and now I’m freaked out. Does this mean she has a cognitive or intellectual impairment as well as autism?

41:58 The mind does not switch off, so sometimes the alcohol sometimes switches off the brain. People sometimes don’t understand the strength of the brain with Autism. I don’t wish to say to much but I know lots of things that I have learnt. But what I find is that most, don’t understand how my brain is running at 1000 miles an hour from waking to sleep and sometimes in sleep because of the day. I can watch one thing and never forget it. Unless I suppress it. I also work like a computer with a data bank of information I can recall if needed.

47:06 Any advice on how to stop licking my child started this behavior licking their hand and wiping the saliva over their face the behavior started with a series of colds and now continues although well.

Likes to use wet wash cloth as well if not licking.

55:16 Son refuses to go in bath tub. He is not afraid of water. ABA does water protocol. He is afraid of tub . Where do I start. He is so traumatized from last bath which we had to wash hair.

When I was having the assessment interview with the ABA therapist she recommended 40 hours a week which is way higher than I assumed my daughter would need (since she has such a mild case), and she also said my daughter is at the level expected of an 18 month old. My daughter is 2.5. I really wasn’t expecting this. I know my daughter is behind but to hear that she’s like an 18 month old was jarring and I’m worried now that my daughter will have struggles beyond the challenges she’ll face being autistic. I guess I just don’t understand the huge discrepancies between the two therapists and now I’m freaked out. Does this mean she has a cognitive or intellectual impairment as well as autism?

41:58 The mind does not switch off, so sometimes the alcohol sometimes switches off the brain. People sometimes don’t understand the strength of the brain with Autism. I don’t wish to say to much but I know lots of things that I have learnt. But what I find is that most, don’t understand how my brain is running at 1000 miles an hour from waking to sleep and sometimes in sleep because of the day. I can watch one thing and never forget it. Unless I suppress it. I also work like a computer with a data bank of information I can recall if needed.

47:06 Any advice on how to stop licking my child started this behavior licking their hand and wiping the saliva over their face the behavior started with a series of colds and now continues although well.

Likes to use wet wash cloth as well if not licking.

55:16 Son refuses to go in bath tub. He is not afraid of water. ABA does water protocol. He is afraid of tub . Where do I start. He is so traumatized from last bath which we had to wash hair.

5:04 Autism & Dealing with Neighbors For some context, I live in a basement apartment with my husband and our dog who as well as being a service animal, loves kids and is very mild-mannered. We have been having issues with our upstairs neighbors since November in regards to loud stomping, furniture being slammed, and loud screaming. I have been up to talk to them about it several times and last night I reached my breaking point. I went upstairs to ask them to please stop stomping as my husband works early mornings and was trying to sleep for work. When she opened the door I could see that the small two-bedroom apartment had no less than six adults and four kids inside of it. I calmly asked them to stop the stomping and since this is the third time I have had to ask in the last four months, the next time it got this bad I would be lodging a complaint with the property management company. My neighbor had a friend over who has a 3-year-old who is on the spectrum and was the one stomping the hardest and causing the most amount of noise. Her friend gets a sour look on her face and started chirping at me from across the room. Friend: You live in a basement apartment and he has autism, what the hell do you expect me to do there is going to be some noise. Me: Ok, I get that I live in the basement but stomping until picture frames fall off my walls is a different story. please help me

20:08 What Happens to My Child After I Die? Support for adult autistic patient who is stable, living with parent at home. He ia motivated to go to his work on MWF by bus, gets up, dresses, eats breakfast, gets bus by himself. Does household chores and hits all expectations in a timely manner. Socializes well with adults and enjoys cultural activities. Problem: what happens when parent passes? How can we make plans for him (now 59 yoa) in the case of losing his single parent (79 yoa).

37:58 Hello Shannon, Dr. Doreen! Thank you for always trying to help us! My son is 4+ non verbal, regressed around 20 months and attends ABA at CARD San Antonio. From your previous advice about getting a stool test done to check if there is a yeast overgrowth to rule out yeast as the reason for my son's no-reason laughing spells. We got a comprehensive stool study ordered by a functional med Dr and there was no yeast issues in the results. But some issues with mal-absorption for which a specific strain of probiotics (L Reuteri) with vit D has been prescribed. After a week of using them, he has diarrhea, earlier he had hard stools. should we hold on to the probiotics or continue even with the diarrhea? PS. he is still on the GFCFSF , reduced sugars diet

41:14 Hi I want to ask Dr. Grandpeesheh about my son qho was diagnosed with autism at 31 months. We live in South Africa. My son never responded to his name, he would spin himself around, he lined up toys and would play with them in strange ways. My son would be distracted by the smallest sounds and would hate weird textures on his hands. He would also hate to be hugged and only had 2 words by the age of 3. My son just turned 5 and now I'm starting to question his diagnosis. He has been in aba therapy, speech and OT for 2 years. Now at 5 he loves going to the playground and playing with other kids. My son always manages to find a friend. His speech is still delayed but I can have a conversation with him and I feel he will soon catch up to his peers. My son has never had a meltdown. He loves playing with dough an sand now. Doesn't seem to have sensitivity to sounds anymore and loves hugging his mom and I. He is completely different now. I just don't understand it. He is in mainstream and his teachers say he is a pleasure to have in class and he is super confident when answering questions. Do you feel he might have been misdiagnosed?

49:49 What do goals look like for older kids? We stopped at 9 because I felt like I had a handle on it.

5:04 Autism & Dealing with Neighbors For some context, I live in a basement apartment with my husband and our dog who as well as being a service animal, loves kids and is very mild-mannered. We have been having issues with our upstairs neighbors since November in regards to loud stomping, furniture being slammed, and loud screaming. I have been up to talk to them about it several times and last night I reached my breaking point. I went upstairs to ask them to please stop stomping as my husband works early mornings and was trying to sleep for work. When she opened the door I could see that the small two-bedroom apartment had no less than six adults and four kids inside of it. I calmly asked them to stop the stomping and since this is the third time I have had to ask in the last four months, the next time it got this bad I would be lodging a complaint with the property management company. My neighbor had a friend over who has a 3-year-old who is on the spectrum and was the one stomping the hardest and causing the most amount of noise. Her friend gets a sour look on her face and started chirping at me from across the room. Friend: You live in a basement apartment and he has autism, what the hell do you expect me to do there is going to be some noise. Me: Ok, I get that I live in the basement but stomping until picture frames fall off my walls is a different story. please help me
