7:31 How can I know if my child is hurting if she can’t speak?

10:46 I have a 3.8 year old granddaughter that wants to scratch and scream at you. She will also hit you, how do we handle it?

26:12 Hi, I would like to thank Dr. Doreen for answering my question on hyperbaric chambers and redox reactions. It was so informative and helpful, I could listen to Dr. Doreen speak all day :) Would Dr. Doreen consider giving a crash course to BCBA's on all the biological aspects of treatment for Autism including diet, medications, exercises.... whatever is out there, I would love to know it to better help my clients. Thank you for an amazing show!

29:07 My 6 year old child on the spectrum doesn’t like when his 13 year old NT son touches his toys or any items. He tantrums and gets upset. He doesn’t like to share with his brother.

My son also gets upset and obsessed with his 13 year old brother’s feet. He gets upset when his brother has his feet uncovered (we’ve tried having my older son cover his feet.. not working

Also… I’m exhausted. I feel like I’m on a hamster wheel… it’s always something

40:39 Can you help me help my child who is 5 on the spectrum poops everywhere he is pee trained but struggling to get him to poop in the toilet.

44:54 Hello, My daughter has memory Issues, she forgets things easily, any suggestions? She usually forgets where she was going or what she was looking for.

50:57 My nephew is 7 years old on a spectrum, lives in Switzerland and has only few hours in a week of therapy. Dr Doreen, do you have your facility there or you know anyone so they can get proper therapy?

55:07 We're new to ABA therapy, we were recommended by our child's psychologist with a newly opened ABA provider, but was told that the staff are not new and they are experienced who decided to build their own ABA. There's no review online yet about them but was told that there're no waiting list and there's staff available within the area for a child. Do you think we should trust and go for it? What do we need to consider regarding choosing a good ABA Provider for our child?

5:25 Would hyperbaric chambers be an effective method to assist individuals with autism?

I am a BCBA and frequently watch your show. I was listening to Dr. Doreen speak on June 9th regarding the possible link between toxins, the redox reaction, and autism (at the 59 minute mark). If I understood correctly, the toxins prevent the respiratory cycle from functioning optimally. If that is the case, would hyperbaric chambers be an effective method to assist individuals with autism? Thank you for a great and informative show!

Questions:
4:53 Hand-Biting I have son who is 10 years and he is having a lot of sensory issues. He bite his hand when he get frustrated or when demand is places. We tried chews and he hated them. He doesn’t like anything on his hand or his necklace.
 10:07 Systematic Desensitization & Phobias
 How can u ween my adult son off music earphones, they have become a crutch. But works for sensory issues when in the community. Also my son has a phobia of dogs all sizes limits our time in the community. Thank you.
 9:50 Rocking back and Forth
 He likes to rocks back and forth on the sofa (we replace that with rocking chair) .He doesn’t like anything on his hands or around his necklace (we tried chew tubes but he hates wearing any chews around His neck).He likes to throw thing and watch them and stim with his hands . He likes to Throw mud outside when he outside and all he wants to do is get the mud and throw that in backyard. We tried to replace with sand (different kind of) but it’s not working.
 22:04 How Can I Help My Roommate with Autism?
 I have a new roommate with autism. Extremely high functioning, however as an adult they need still a care taker in a sense. Cannot drive, really bad with money, super gullible...can't really cook. I've never lived with someone with autism, however my heart broke when they told me their story. I'm Caucasian, and they a person of color. Most of 2020 they were homeless and even caught COVID because of it. Couch surfing, they got sexually abuses by some they were staying with and others just took their social security money and EBT, all while calling them racial slurs to their face. Some people are truly disgusting. I have no interest in taking advantage of this human. They've been through enough and I certainly don't want to add to the list. The issue here is not only am I dealing with autism, I'm also dealing with PTSD from what they experienced in 2020. I'd like to help promote independence so one day they can live on their own, however also don't want to come off as cold, and I also don't want to coddle too much either. I'll happily take any advice I can get.

 44:34 Fireworks are a Huge problem for my 6 Year Old
 Fireworks are a huge problem with my 6 yro son. Should we stay in this 4th of July?

Evelyn Kung, the Clinical Systems Manager for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, joins us once again to discuss viewer questions. Check it out!

 

11:34 Reducing and Refraining Spitting: 3 year old non verbal son loves when you sing for him. He loves YouTube kids Cocomelon. He not given much screen time. When he does he spits on the iPad screen a lot. When you take it away from him and turn the show on TV he does the same thing. He does not always want chewy stixx or chewy necklace. He receives regular ABA, OT and speech services. Wondering if there other intervention procedures we could try to help him reduce or refrain from spitting?

17:48 Undesirable Tasks: Hello ladies.. how do I work on building the skill 'Sometimes I have to do things I don't want to do.' My 13 year old has it in his brain that except from school he doesn't need to do anything he doesn't like. For example, make his lunch, go outside and get fresh air, spend time with his family... We have let him have his way a few times and now he thinks that's how it always should be. He is very content sitting on the couch with his iPad. He is home schooled and doesn't have friends. He says no to almost every suggestion and we end up forcing him out of the house sometimes and he will say he had fun. We live in a beautiful state with lots to do!

29:51 Hand-Flapping: Hi. My son hand flaps only when he’s overly excited. What do I do for that?

32:39 Meltdowns: I have custody of my 11, almost 12, year old grandson. I'm having trouble helping him calm down when he's approaching meltdown. I see it coming and I start using my soft directive tone reminding him to breath and giving simple directions but he absolutely fights me and tells me he can't calm down. I sometimes walk away and give him space and time, or offer hugs but nothing is working. I try to catch it early but I'm failing. Any suggestions?

38:40 Meltdowns with Nonverbal Children: (In response to the answer to the previous question) What if child is nonverbal???

48:37 FREE IBT Courses Available Online: Parents: E-learning Parent Communication and Socialization + RBT 2.0 Training course free to parents on a case by case basis Educators: The Social Environment

51:55 Finger Sucking: How do it get my child to not suck his fingers ??. He is 8 years old and this is a health concern. He sucks fingers for comfort . He does not like chewy . He is nonverbal.

57:10 Schedule Fixation: My son get fixated on schedules. Even if he is doing what he likes outside home. If he has to be home at a certain time he wants to go home. How do I make him change his mind?
