14:22 What skills programs concentrate on cognition without being considered academic

21:36 here is a question, with all the scary events that are going on right now, how can people on the spectrum handle them and not get scared?

31:01 My child is diagnosed with ASD but the insurance denied abs after provided ADOS.

34:46 We are getting Neurological development evaluation what does something like this entail?

35:50 Hi! Have you had any experience with kiddos taking Namenda? His bio med doctor wants to put my son in Namenda to help with symptoms, especially hyperactivity. My son laughs excessively... it’s an escape behavior. He also laughs excessively when he’s nervous. I know it’s not yeast, we’ve tested him for yeast. It’s exhausting.

38:52 How do I make sure a school district removes a special needs teacher and aides and replaces them with someone who is educated and doesn't abuse our kids? Also, how do I present the NEED for cameras in our districts special needs classrooms?? ...I have 100 hours of audio...HORRIFIED by the first 5 minutes😵😖

39:50 Where do we find out about that therapy Shannon I use cbd oil it helps me alot I don't do rx meds. My insurance denied aba or anything for autism I was told speech therapy would be then they didn't pay it

44:13 They cannot help me with my child licking his hand.

46:14 Please state your credentials and provide links to the scholarly studies you speak of

49:53 Hello from St. Paul mn , my question is how safe it’s to take COVID vaccination when my son has challenges already, he’s severe autistic please I’m worried Need help,

Shannon and Dr. Doreen answer questions written in by viewers about autism recovery, quality ABA, diets and much more! Tune in and check it out! Questions answered below.

 6:42 Are Shannon or Dr. Doreen autistic or have autistic friends and family?
 9:25 Do you believe a person with ASD can recover?
 14:25 I believe that ABA therapy is extremely cruel.
 19:17 I wish my very high functioning aspie 6 years old received ABA and learn all the skills now than later 🙈
 20:39 hi Dr. Doreen here is a quickie, is there any other diets that you reccommend besides gf/cf?
 26:02 My son is potty trained in pee, but I cannot get him to do #2 on the potty. Please help
 28:54 Hello, my son communicates his need/want he is 41/2now. When will he start to communicate with us (randomly)
 31:30 My grandson doesn’t eat and it’s very hard to put him to sleep
 37:39 My son is 6. He’s been in ABA for 3 years and has made great progress but he’s so hyperactive. He does great in his center but so hyperactive at home and is now becoming defiant. I’m losing my mind.
 42:19 My 8 y.o. is always hungry. She can eat 3 bowls of spaghetti. She also has issuea with heat. She cant stand being outaide when too hot. What ia this and what can i do?
 44:26 What help is there for me? I just can’t deal with my own thoughts.
 46:14 I need advice on how to handle my parents because they don’t trust me.
 54:32 Our son is 4, and was diagnosed with ASD a year ago. We are currently living in a region with very poor education, and both my husband and I remember how autistic kids were treated when we were in school, not that long ago and not that far away. We are afraid he won't be able to reach his highest potential if we stay, or worse, for his education to make this brilliant kid believe he isn't good enough for anything. We have been talking about moving, but my parents are retired and take care of him while we work. They are fantastic, and he has a great relationship with them. We are afraid of him losing this connection and withdrawing. They cannot afford to move with us. I know everyone has a different case, and we must decide for ourselves, but has anyone here been faced with a similar choice? What did you decide, and how did it turn out? Thank you very much! Edit: We are thinking about moving overseas.
 1:00:18 My 4 year old ASD son probably has visual slimming...looks at moving trees, light coming out of windows... his language skills are improving... please help on how to work on this
