Join us for this episode of Ask Evelyn Kung! Write in and ask the Clinical Director for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders YOUR autism question!

8:35 What is Evelyn Kung's Advice on Masks?

here is a quickie, hopefully this isn’t a silly question. with the us department of education's recent ruling on masks. what is Dr. Kung's advice on this

 

19:16 Dealing with Mask Related Obstacles

My daughter did the whole year in the hospitals and never got over the mask issue. It caused her both sensory and panic attacks, so just added one more obstacle to her already stressful day. But nobody said they couldn't wear them. It's a CHOICE!

 

26:58 Teenagers & Tantrums

My son is 14 and has autism. He has an attitude to everything and still throws fists. What should I do? Like he is 2 or 3.

 

47:03 Refusing Schedule and Regulation

My daughter has many visuals and schedules and aids, but she continues to “refuse” to use them. If they are working for her, she seems to get bothered that it is working and that her “code” has been cracked. So, she will have a behavior that could have been avoided if she had stuck to the schedule, but she seems to be “looking” for reasons to be miserable. And can’t stand to function without the misery. So, being organized and regulated seems to make her dis-regulated, if that makes sense? I just don’t know what to do about it. We have tried ABA, CBT, and DBT. She is 15 and this problem has existed from the start. She did 2 residential settings. She does so well in the “structured” the rules are the rules, and no outside stressors are added that she always “graduates” in 30 days. She can tell you the rules she does awful at the Point of Performance. She unwinds too quick, and her negative self-talk takes over too quick in the real world. It's very hard to watch and work through.

 Hello Dr. Doreen and Shannon. How to teach the child advanced emotion like embarrassment. I am using SKILLS. What are the prerequisite skills required to teach this advanced emotion? thanks.
 
 40:08 where can I start now that he is 19?
 This is for next time Dr. Doreen is on :) I've been listening to your podcast for a while and I'm almost depressed that it wasn't around when my son was small.  He 19 now and I'm starting to feel regret that I never tried the interventions you talk about back when he was first diagnosed. I think I put all our eggs in one basket with the school therapies.  (ABA OT Speech) My question is where can I start now that he is 19? How would I find someone to help guide us in Worcester, MA... central Massachusetts? Is there a registry of Doctors that can help? Do we start with gf/cf? I know you can't give individual advice but in general, is that where people would try to start? Thanks so much for any input! Also, thank you for all that you do!

 Hi Dr. Doreen, I will be moving to Chicago from UAE soon. I would like to know if a diagnosis from UAE qualifies for services in the USA or we have to get in line again.

If not, can when pay for a private diagnosis in USA and not get in line? I will be getting insurance with Cigna.
