Ask Dr. Doreen – Elopement – ABA Therapy – Obsessive Counting

 

Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is answering viewer questions! Tune in and check it out! Tune in on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter Tuesdays at 10am PT to join us LIVE!

Recorded Live 10am PT July 26th, 2022

#AutismSpectrumDisorder #Autism #autismpodcast

 

5:02 I am in desperate need of some advice or direction.  (Elopement)

My 5-year-old eloped this morning and the rental office in which I live brought him back I assuming.  I was in the bathroom freshening up for the day when I came out to knocking on the door.  My son was in the living room, and we were waiting for the maintenance man to fix our AC that has been broken for 2.5 days now.  I opened the door thinking it was them to fix the AC, but it was not, it was the office lady telling me they found my boy down around the corner. 

 

As of right now, my nerves are shot.  I have done everything I could think of to prevent any of this to happen.  I am horrified that CPS and the authorities were called and that I may have been reported.  IS there anything that could happen as to having my son removed?  I am literally sick to my stomach, throwing up and stomach cramps and headaches.  This nightmare I want it to be over but do not know what is going to happen at this moment.

 

UPDATE:  We bought a lock with a key lock.  MY nerves are still on edge this morning. Monday July 26th 2022 that I still in my mind think he still can get out.  I know he cannot get out, there is no way he can.

 

20:12 what way can we provide auditory stimulation to a child who is continuously clapping, stamping feet, and hitting object to teeth.

 

27:10 What can be happening when a child stares for moments many times during the day. Done an EEG and it came out normal and whenever i touched her she is able to react. But I would like to know what it could be.

 

28:46 Can you please break down how I should teach my child at home? We use play therapy in Canada, and I feel like play should be part of the therapy not all. Can a child pronunciation improve with time?

 

38:32 For a 20-month-old is it home therapy better than clinic-based therapy?

 

44:16 here is a personal question. my aunt and uncle were supposed to come in today but due to a mishap in her medication her and my uncle aren't able to come. me and this particular uncle have a very deep relationship and we haven't seen each other in a year and a half due to them moving to North Carolina. I'm handling it surprisingly well, but I'm afraid in the next few days i might have a huge meltdown when it hits in fully. help me and my family.

 

48:55 Obsessive Counting

Plenty of others deserve time but I will put this thought/question out. A verbal-stim/script behavior pattern is occurring frequently now & impairing/preventing interaction. My 5yr ASD son has taken to CONSTANTLY without stopping 30-40min. COUNTING. 100s/1000s even is OK. but he jumps into sequences of millions, billions, trillions, Google and zillion. onto creating his own. Recently he went from prep-time for out-the-door to reach summer school constant counting going through breakfast, teeth, socks, shoes, into car, trip to summer school, arrive @ school, and without stopping as he went into open area (alone). This is impairing and will make learning in a classroom not possible; and not acceptable.

 

55:16 Obsessive Counting Cont'd

A good thing? Why would it turn on a go for 30-40min? Whisper it silently in the playground alone .. and a home. / Hmm. interesting thoughts my son is super smart about math ^ measurement, time etc...

Our host Shannon Penrod PONI (Parent of a Neurodiverse Individual) shares parenting hacks for bedtime rituals!  Tips are shared that parents can use at home and help get their child to sleep!

 

Bedtime Rituals

 

  1. You do have the power to change the bedtime ritual – but only if you are well rested yourself. Call in reinforcements if possible.
  2. The bedtime ritual starts in the morning and lasts all day.
  3. Physical activity is a great success strategy.
  4. The night time ritual: Dinner with no stimulants, bath or swim, special jammies, reading/singing, low key fun in bed, leaving. Reward good sleep behaviors.
  5. The bedtime pass.
  6. Separation anxiety
  7. Bedwetting
  8. Other nighttime problems – sleepwalking, night terrors, smearing, waking at a specific time
  9. When nothing works – get help, check medical, look for clues.

#Autism #Stimming #AutismParents

Autism Jargon – Stimming

Question – How do you stim?

Topic of Week – Empowering those on the Spectrum

Stimming Stim is an abbreviation of the phrase Self-Stimulatory Behavior, but stimming is often used to describe behaviors that are self-soothing AND behaviors that are self-stimulatory.

Important things to remember.

Everybody Stims.

Stimming serves a purpose.

Before targeting any behavior for change you should ask WHY you want to change the behavior. Is it necessary to change the behavior?

Why is the individual engaging in the behavior?

What need is it fulfilling? Can that need be met in another way?

What are some ways to replace a behavior?

What are some ways to put limitations on a behavior?

What are the ethical guidelines to working on these kinds of behaviors? What are some ways to work with your team to be compassionate in working on these behaviors?

What can we do to destigmatize stimming behaviors?

How can we educate others?

Autism Live host Shannon Penrod is here to discuss what EO is and how it can be useful for parents! After that, she interacts with our live viewers about the question of the day and topic of the week before getting into a deep Parent to Parent discussion about Potty Training! Tune in and interact with our host Weekdays @10 am PT!

Is your child ready for toilet training?

Are they showing sensory signs they are ready?

Are you ready for toilet training?

Are you able to take the time to do this?

Are you rested enough?

Are you in the place where you are willing to do the difficult thing to get to better times?

Setting the Stage:

Create a place to take data

Make your bathroom fabulous

Get cool underwear

Get a timer/can use your phone

Catch up on laundry and sleep

2 weeks before

Start taking data – give your child a drink/try to notice when they void

Get a feel for what their number is.

Day/week before

Get salty preferred snacks and drinks Make sure your schedule is cleared.

Make party trips to visit the potty – no demands

Day 1

Make the world fun for your child and yourself

Feed salty snacks – give fluids – set timer equation is 1 minute less than the average # of minutes before they usually urinate.

When timer goes off – party to the bathroom

Put them on potty

Set timer for 5 minutes

If they go CELEBRATE!!!!! Then repeat

If they don’t do – take them off, help them redress reset the timer for 3 minutes – do something outside the bathroom that is fun.

When the time goes off – party to the bathroom

Put them on potty

Set timer for 5 minutes

If they go CELEBRATE!!!!! Then repeat

If they don’t do – take them off, help them redress reset the timer for 3 minutes – do something outside the bathroom that is fun.

If they have an accident – there is no reaction, no words, no looks – clean it up and start over.

Once they are getting it fairly often, SWITCH TOILETS!!!! Go places! Take the timer – do the same steps as home.

It is all about consistency!

The poop thing –

Different but the same – take the data first

Set a reward

Overcome sensory obstacles

REWARD Heavily

Nighttime – wait until they are ready Go over the rules and set the stage for success

Reward, Reward, Reward

Trouble shooting

Accidents

Sensory Issues

Past Trauma

Medical Issues

PICA

Smearing

5:15 Potty Training

My son knows the steps to clean himself after a bowel movement but does not clean himself voluntarily. When We provide him he toilet paper He just toss this in the toilet but does not clean himself. When we do hand over hand is the only time He clean himself. What to do to make him understand that is important to clean himself after a BM? Thank you in advance.

09:04 Responding from Another Room My son, 13, is doing all kinds of new things! He used to not answer us if he was in another room. Recently he has been answering us from another room but not extremely loud enough for us to hear him. I want to ask his new BCBA to write a goal for this. Any thoughts and ideas on this?

11:32 How can I help get Rid of a Script?

How can i help get rid of a script my so. picked up . its a violent phrase? it was something he heard from a show clip. he says it randomly.

16:14 My son who is 5 years old and he keeps talking about poop.

My son who is 5 years old and he keeps talking about poop. We ignore it and it goes away but right back at it.

19:46 here is a question for both of you. I’m volunteering at mu churches VBS and have to wear A inflatable koala suit. the problem is, is that children freak me out. what can I do to do good with this opportunity?

24:29 How do we teach parents how to spot “bad” ABA and as BCBAs, get more “good/great” ABA out in the world?

31:31 Hi Shannon and Dr. Doreen. Sometimes I find myself in conflict between putting too much pressure on my son, with his intervention demands, and just "accepting him the way he is". Is there a balance?

40:27 Hi there, my Son is 20 years old and when he gets frustrated ( I think it’s that) he starts pounding his chest, and I can’t seem to redirect him at that moment cause he’s upset obviously, how can I help him to get away from this type of behavior, thank you so much.

42:55 Potty Training hi Shannon and Dr. Doreen.. My son always jumps and run here and there before going for potty. I tried so much to make him sit on the toilet seat and go for potty. can you suggest anything?

43:44 There was a post this morning about a SLP who told a mom that ABA was like a “cult”. Glass walls, no parents aloud. I’ve had a BCBA that told me there was no data behind diet.

45:12 My question is for Dr Doreen. I recently hired ABA Consultant and instead of assessing my daughter he was flirting with the teachers. After 2hrs of observations he charged me 500pounds& send me 1 page. I live in London and I am really disappointed with the services or lack of service. He also sent me email insisting that he wants to train my daughter's teachers. I informed him I want you to train me He wants to train the teachers instead. Many thanks.

47:20 I have dyspraxia, ADHD and Asperger’s traits . Have you heard of this combination? When is the chat live?

50:02 I have a 3 yr that has ADHD and autism he gets really violent he start hitting me throwing things at me kicking things and screaming when tell him no or if he’s doing something that can hurt him and I say to get down because he going to get hurt he gets out of control how do help him not get to that level.

53:55 My son is 7 and is doing great but I’m just overwhelmed and feel defeated at times. This is for the long haul and I’m tired. I love my son but I’m struggling with the forever of it all!
