Check out this episode of Ask Dr. Doreen! Psychologist and BCBA Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh discusses Meltdowns, Depression and Neurotypical siblings! Tune in to hear what Shannon and Dr. Doreen have to say!

 

5:20 My autistic 11 year old will shut down often when he has a sensory meltdown or is stressed. Sometimes he will not talk at all for hours. Is this something normal autistic kids do? How can I help him? He will roll up into a ball.

23:53 My 3.5 years old son talking to himself in gibberish has reduced and now he has started using words I can understand even if it is directed to me. Does it mean there is hope for him to talk again?

27:35 I cry every night 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

31:15 We as parents have to get through the circle of depression before we can think of helping them.

43:23 My son is more affectionate than before his diagnosis. Do you know why?

46:35 Hello. I have a 10 year old boy with ASD and a neurotypical 6 year old girl. My son teases his sister every chance he gets. It's almost automatic. As soon as he sees her he starts right in making fun of whatever she is doing, wearing, playing, etc. Calling her a baby and other names. It's mostly verbal, but sometimes he even gets physical with her. It's difficult to stop him. We have house rules that they say no unkind words, but he still teases. He knows he loses time on the computer (his favorite) if he is mean to his sister, but he continues. It's draining. We need expert advise. Thank you!

55:42 My son was jealous. He would say that he wishes he had some autism so that I could spend more time with him.

59:29 Is Dr. Doreen accepting adult patients who need an autism diagnosis?

1:08 Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh on the Doctors!

9:35 What you should know about Pika

22:38 My four year old (with ASD) is pushing his 3 year old brother.  Hard to the ground and worse he seems to like doing it.  I am horrified and frightened.  To add to the situation my mother in law saw him do this and is telling everyone in the family that it is because he has autism and no empathy.  Help!

33:04 My son is one of those hard core cases.  Everyday is a battle.  He is 22.  I feel like I have tried everything and that everyone has given up on us – on him and me.  My choices seem to be to drop him off at a facility that I don’t believe to be reputable or to simply take the chaos that is my life.  We don’t sleep. We live in fear of another out burst.  He communicates with an ipad but it is not unusual for him to break his ipad.  I have 4 in the shop being repaired right now.  I don’t believe anyone understands. 

45:35 Where can I get information about which diet I should try for my 4 year old who is NV and has diarehhia  every day of his life.

56:30 My 16 year old is mostly happy but when he is sad it is catastrophic, everything is horrible…it scares me.  Then he seems to snap out of it but as he ages it seems more extreme and to last longer.  Does the dr recommend meds

Has Dr. Doreen heard of Great Thunberg?

4:32 Shannon gets a surprise gift from CARD!

10:38 My Son Keeps Going Into the Bathroom and Undressing Before Urinating on His Clothes

16:40 Take away reinforcer of removing laundry is what we are trying now. I sent special bags to put wet clothes in to bring home. Fingers crossed.

24:42 is it good idea to collect data for my son’s doc his endocrinologist referral is not till march ugh

30:48 A Discussion about Systematic Desensitization

33:37 Hello Shannon and Dr. Doreen, thank you for all the help to many families! my concern is - - - Can a 30min EEG with 10min of wake time and 20 min of nap time diagnose seizures?

my son is 4yr old nonverbal and did not like the EEG cap on his head but we could manage because he had a nap, not sure how he can take the 48hr ambulatory EEG and how we can stop him from pulling

39:17 his neurologist only recommended for a 30 min for now and said will decide on to extending to 48hr after seeing the reports for 30mins... scheduled to discuss in December

39:48 Seizure activity and diet

42:00 Yeast Issues

46:00 Do you recommend any tests for yeast overload?

51:22 We are in the process of adjusting medications to help with focus. Zoloft was awful and I’m hearing negative reviews on SSRIs in general. Any suggestions? I believe the next step is Prozac but that is an SSRI as well.

55:33 A Discussion about a Study about Pesticides

58:28 My son is ADHD and takes meds for it but I also feel he may have anxiety. Is that possible to treat, also?

6:28 I'm 25 and have been fired from about 85% of my jobs or aren't rehireable. I've made money every year since 16, but through a lot of jobs. Sometimes only weeks or months at a time. I became an EMT at 23. I've gone through a few jobs since then. I also have PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, sleep issues. Likely Marfans or EDS as well. Waiting on test results. Before I got fired from my last job, I told them about my issues and how it affected my performance and how my boss had really made it difficult for me to succeed. . I even said I thought I had autism. HR lady said "My son has autism". I don't know what she meant by that. I often times miss social cues. I say what I think is acceptable, only to later hear that people don't like me because of it. I ask questions for clarity, and then people hate that. I have a higher-than-average IQ, but I can't seem to really do much with it. If I went to try and get disability, do I need a long history of the diagnosis? I've been in therapy for other stuff for years intermittently. I got diagnosed with autism the day after I got fired. Which was not even a month ago. I'm so mentally exhausted. I don't see how I can keep a job. I only haven't been fired from 3 jobs. 1 was when I was 16 and it was Wendy's and I didn't have it long before we moved. The second was a call center. The third was an EMT job that won't rehire me. Pretty much all my life people disliking me is a huge misunderstanding. They think I am condescending or rude. I try to help and they think I'm lording over and trying to be the boss. Etc. I'm about ready to throw in the towel. Can anyone tell me how hard it is to get the disability and how much they give you? Can you work even if you get the money if you find some place willing to work with you? What if I get the money but have my own business on the side? I want to sell crafts I make with my circuit, what I paint or make. TIA

14:02 Hi , I have a question how parents can learn or benefit through skills program is there a subscription and how can we avail it please let me know

24:41 Thoughts on special needs boarding schools vs daily schools?

27:35 What are your thoughts about brain integration therapy, interactive metronome outcomes to improve focus and attention? Thanks!

Join us as our host Shannon Penrod interviews the famous autism advocate and professor Dr. Temple Grandin! In this episode Dr. Grandin will be answering questions that our viewers wrote into our host! Tune in and interact with us LIVE while Dr. Grandin and our host Shannon discuss the answers and interact with our live audience!!!

 

3:41 What do you think is the recommendation for kids with ASD /ADHD to improve focus and attention or specific activities that will help, if not having meds as an option?

 

4:57 what are the best ways to teach job skills for people on the spectrum?

 

12:17 I have heard you say that you spun a metal ring on your bed and that you like to watch sand go through your fingers.  What does that do for you?  I want to understand why my son splashes water. 

 

14:09 When you were in elementary, what were your challenges as a kid and how did you manage it, or how did the school help you?

 

15:46 How did you deal with bullies?

 

16:46 When you went to college did you have any accommodations, what kinds of accommodations do you make for your students, do you have students that are on the spectrum?

 

19:06 Which of your books should I read first?  I am 22 and am autistic. 

 

25:30 We are trying to teach my son the multiplication tables and I am not sure what to do.  I had to memorize it as a kid, but that doesn’t seem to be working, how did you learn it, and do you have any suggestions?

 

27:07 Do you have sensitivity to clothing?  Are there somethings you won’t wear?  My son will only wear short pants and takes off his shoes whenever he can?

 

29:30 Did you watch Elon Musk and Bezos go into space; did you watch Shatner?  What do you think?  Do you want to go? Do you think they should be called astronauts for only going up for ten minutes?

 

32:36 When you visualize one of the buildings you design, do you see it from above first or can you see it from all angles at the same time?  Can you describe your process?  Your drawings are stunning.

 

34:22 You have said you have a visual brain are their other types of brains?  I don’t think my son is visual and I want to understand him.

 

37:30 Who have you been most excited to meet in your life and if you could meet anyone, who would it be?

 

39:00 Our son is 7 and loves trains, what can we do with him now to help him be ready to have a job?

 

42:05 Is there a children’s book about Autism you recommend for us to read to our kids on the spectrum and their siblings?

 

43:56 How did you find out that you were on the spectrum and any advice on how to tell our 11-year-old daughter?

 

44:58 What does Temple love about teaching?  How did she first begin to teach?

 

47:10 Do you have a best friend?  What do you like to do with friends?  How do you recommend we foster friendships for our 16-year-old?  He likes cars.

 

49:36 This might be a strange question, but have you ever had someone doubt that you were on the spectrum?  Our son has made so much progress that people often tell us that he must have been misdiagnosed but they have no idea how hard he worked.  It’s frustrating.

 

50:58 I am neurodivergent and I hate when parents find out – they stare at me and watch everything I do – and they ask stupid questions like “Do I remember my childhood” I find it annoying.  Do you every get annoyed when people ask you stupid questions?  How do you deal with it?

 

52:20 I am concerned about high school students who have lost so much in Covid, as a college professor I am interested to know what you think we should be doing to get these kids caught up and ready for college or jobs.

 

55:45 How many books have you wrote?

 

56:55 Parents of children how are highly impacted are asking for there to be a new designation for their kids because Autism is such a big umbrella, what does Temple think of that?

Don't miss Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders answering viewer questions about engagement, sensory issues, middle schoolers and more! Tune in!

3:45 I’m so lucky to catch you on time 😆 I have a question regarding my niece . She 13 months and she’s not banking baby words , not engaging with others, not walking and love the iPad most of the time.

9:30 Is there a place that we can send somebody to get training on how to do ABA?

13:45 what are your recommendations for parents with kid's going to middle school? Please I will really really appreciate your time. Thanks

19:34 Can generalization be used on similar situations of occurrence or on any general term.

23:00 Hi Dr. Doreen, there was a study published in JAMA Pediatrics regarding video-based therapy for infants suspected with Autism. In your view what does that mean for autism therapies and recovery?

25:25 there are major shortages of things right now since the holidays are around the corner and kids on the spectrum are fixated on certain toys and other things. what is your advice for these parents to help them with the shortages?

28:15 What exactly does Brigance do? If you can repeat? I went there and it shows different calculators. Which one I would use for the 13 months infant

https://www.curriculumassociates.com/products/brigance/brigance-free-tools

30:45 My son is 13 & having a lot of sensory issues. I blame it to his hormonal changes. Any idea how long will this last? (Inappropriate touching, bouncing, hyperactivity…)

37:12 This is a question regarding reinforcers. I work as a BT, and I’ve bought many many toys to use with my clients, but I am having trouble with my current client. The child is fixated with smaller than rice objects. She is constantly looking for tiny pieces on the floor. The child is very little interested in “typical toys”. Do you have any recommendations of what I can buy or use as reinforcers?

45:08 Our neurologist prescribed this medication. My son started this when he was 7 years old, he’s taking about almost 3 years now. He was okay taking this, but the problem is he was

Have a hot body that I was thinking fever. And He was taking a shower always for 3 times in one day. I tried to stop this medication, but behavior came back, he bangs his head, he kick us and pinching, and he hurt himself by slapping his hardly.

We started this from .30 up to 1mg.

He’s in .25 right now because if he’s in higher dose even in the middle of the night he wants to take a bath.

And again, I want to stop this again cause of he wants to eat and eat even very late at night he’s gaining weight. He asked me to cook always. Until now he is nonverbal, I’m waiting for him to talk, my neurologist told me about its help for his communication the neuro.

My husband wants to stop this medication. Even my son is on GFCF

Still, he needs to take this that’s we experience. I give him 2x a day for small dose and he was okay. No bad behavior but he took a bath always and eating a lot.

51:52 Very interesting, I am having a hard time teaching personnel space and keeping his hands to himself. Makes me wonder if I recorded him hanging on other kids, he would be able to understand what he is doing

9:30 Is there a place that we can send somebody to get training on how to do ABA?

13:45 what are your recommendations for parents with kid's going to middle school? Please I will really really appreciate your time. Thanks

19:34 Can generalization be used on similar situations of occurrence or on any general term.

23:00 Hi Dr. Doreen, there was a study published in JAMA Pediatrics regarding video-based therapy for infants suspected with Autism. In your view what does that mean for autism therapies and recovery?

25:25 there are major shortages of things right now since the holidays are around the corner and kids on the spectrum are fixated on certain toys and other things. what is your advice for these parents to help them with the shortages?

28:15 What exactly does Brigance do? If you can repeat? I went there and it shows different calculators. Which one I would use for the 13 months infant

https://www.curriculumassociates.com/products/brigance/brigance-free-tools

30:45 My son is 13 & having a lot of sensory issues. I blame it to his hormonal changes. Any idea how long will this last? (Inappropriate touching, bouncing, hyperactivity…)

37:12 This is a question regarding reinforcers. I work as a BT, and I’ve bought many many toys to use with my clients, but I am having trouble with my current client. The child is fixated with smaller than rice objects. She is constantly looking for tiny pieces on the floor. The child is very little interested in “typical toys”. Do you have any recommendations of what I can buy or use as reinforcers?

45:08 Our neurologist prescribed this medication. My son started this when he was 7 years old, he’s taking about almost 3 years now. He was okay taking this, but the problem is he was

Have a hot body that I was thinking fever. And He was taking a shower always for 3 times in one day. I tried to stop this medication, but behavior came back, he bangs his head, he kick us and pinching, and he hurt himself by slapping his hardly.

We started this from .30 up to 1mg.

He’s in .25 right now because if he’s in higher dose even in the middle of the night he wants to take a bath.

And again, I want to stop this again cause of he wants to eat and eat even very late at night he’s gaining weight. He asked me to cook always. Until now he is nonverbal, I’m waiting for him to talk, my neurologist told me about its help for his communication the neuro.

My husband wants to stop this medication. Even my son is on GFCF

Still, he needs to take this that’s we experience. I give him 2x a day for small dose and he was okay. No bad behavior but he took a bath always and eating a lot.

51:52 Very interesting, I am having a hard time teaching personnel space and keeping his hands to himself. Makes me wonder if I recorded him hanging on other kids, he would be able to understand what he is doing

5:47 How to improve teeth grinding in sleep?

 

7:02 He gets to see a therapist once every 3 weeks. Part of the reason why is because the people that are seeing him don't have enough staff. Only the more "Important" cases get the most frequent therapy. He is hitting people and throwing things, wouldn't that be considered more "important?" What would you recommend?

 

16:55 How to Reduce Scripting?

Dr. Doreen - My twin boys have improved so much over the past 6 months thanks to in home ABA. They are talking so much more and are getting their VB Mapp assessment this week. Excited and nervous! Wanted to know how to reduce scripting? At the moment I model a lot. I would ask them a question and answer for them. And they would learn. E.g. I would say, ”what did you have for breakfast?” And answer for them saying, “I had scrambled eggs. Is this the right way?

21:31 My son regressed at 3 he was completely verbal now 6 he is nonverbal and dealing with stimming, constant moving not able to sit for 1 min I can I improve his behavior. Currently we are doing speech. We have been in biomed for an entire year no result and also last year for the entire year we did ABA.

27:28 Tell me more about ABA Therapy vs other treatment/help. I disagree about meds always being needed for those who have both ADHD and autism because I have ADHD and am autistic. I am a college student who trained myself to study 8+ hours/day without meds.

 

38:32 Why can't one just teach us the logic from your perspective of why to integrate properly? If explained logically, it could help, I imagine. That way less reward technique needs to be done to teach us?

 

45:14 I am asking a question I never wanted to ask, I am friends with a guy with moderate to severe autism, he turned 27 in January. it is 3 questions in one so bear with me. this guy is 27 and is semi-banned from the pool where he lives. ill tell you the reason. one is flirting with underage lifeguards. he does not know boundaries at all and I'm afraid something will happen like an arrest or an angry dad or other relative beating him up for it, the second reason is that his special interest is lifeguards and lifeguarding. his diagnosis means that he cant pass the tests to apply, at the pool that he is semi banned from he wears lifeguard trunks, lifeguard shirts, and other lifeguard related stuff and it confused the people at the pool. he lives in an assisted living apartment and the caregivers don't watch out over him and that is the worst problem of all. what am I as a friend supposed to do, should I scare him straight, should I take him on a trip to the local jail, I've known this guy for a long time and I am, very concerned please help me.

 

51:10 My daughter was diagnosed with autism she also has bipolar ADHD ODD and reactive attachment disorder She’s 13 years old and I’m having a hard time finding a ba for her. I started her on brain mapping and found out she had a concussion at some time do you think this will help her with her behavioral problems. Arizona

She was born with opiates in her system she is my adopted daughter I’m 77 years old She had for falls on her head when she was two and the last one was two years ago

2:16 Hi, my daughter has recently become more verbal but uses a carrier script every time she speaks a verbal utterance. She begins each begins each utterance with "polar bear" (example: bear bye mom" "polar bear candy please"). Any ideas of how to eliminate the carrier script?

6:17 Hi, many times sent my question no answers why I live in Norway original Ethiopia I have autistic boy 5 years and 6 months and my question is when I deliver him to schools, he bites me, his reactions is not good at all what can I do.

10:56 Is there any hope for my 3.5 years old son to talk again? He used to talk and now since June he made up a language.

22:47 hello and thanks... i am from India...i have been using skills and on your advise have increased aba from 7.5hr/week to 20 hours/week.. i can see the difference..have 2 questions

  1. whenever he is looking at something visual like screens, posters showing words like put on your mask, animal stickers, moving trees, moving paper..his interaction/referencing drops..
  2. When I ask him what he did in school, aba, play etc... he can tell few things.. but not in like full paragraph... I have to ask direct questions after he tells me 2-3 things

31:15 tell what's happening inside his body. can't recognize his body signals. Goes toilet at the last moment. his facial expression is always neutral even when he is sick. He is 9 yrs old .quite verbal.

36:09 Hey, my son, 16 years old, ASD, ADHD, SLD, has been going threw a stage of having meltdowns at the weekend.

47:25 I will follow whatever you say Shannon, you have what I want! Finding Dr. Doreen and you on YouTube when my son was first diagnosed was the answer to my prayers! I am so appreciative of this content. Can methyl b12 injections be helpful for kids with ASD?

When we chatted about why he's so upset at the weekend, and has a meltdown, and he said that's what he does at the weekend. Have you any suggestions on how we can break this cycle? Thank you x

47:25 I will follow whatever you say Shannon, you have what I want! Finding Dr. Doreen and you on YouTube when my son was first diagnosed was the answer to my prayers! I am so appreciative of this content. Can methyl b12 injections be helpful for kids with ASD?

The founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders  answering viewer questions again about decision making, dealing with death, social skills and more! Check it out!

 

 4:06 My friend and I both have autistic sons. Both have problems when faced with making a decision or a choice. They cannot select any of the options. Do you know what could cause this & how to resolve it?
 11:41 Hi Shannon, I’m so excited I get to watch Dr. Doreen live today! I have a question. My baby boy is 8 ½ yrs old now. Has been doing ABA since 5yrs old. Was diagnosed at the age of 3.5 and I learned ABA techniques from I behavioral training while we waited for ABA by a BCBA. His preschool was supported by early childhood development. He only received 20 hrs a week, once we were accepted by a BCBA and we had to fight for that. He was minorly effected by autism but lost all language by the time he was diagnosed. Fast forward to now, he’s doing great, and his BCBA continues to cut his hours back. We are looking for out of center events to expose him to, but don’t really know what direction to go towards. His additional speech and OT are also trying to reduce hours. We are users of skills for living, and have been using that to continue to move the goal post and establish more goals that seem to be overlooked. Lots of executive function, conversation enders, savers, etc. Am I crazy to think they should be worked on by both speech and ABA? I’m worried that things are being cut back too early. Am I just being a control freak, or are those categories in Skills supposed to all be completed? If so by what age. I’ll add a photo. Thanks for all that you do and always sending love and support!
 20:20 How can I help my 11yr old son about death, he mentions a lot that he wants all his family and himself to be alive for ever, that he doesn’t want the world to explode. That he wants the world to be ok. This has been going on for years. He says he wants to stay a small boy; I once try to explain to him about death and it was not good, he was very upset. Since then, I don’t know how to address the death situation, but he asks me every few days if the world and he’s family are going to be alive, please help.
 26:13 How do I make friends as an autistic adult in college?
 I (18F) am autistic and have recently started college. I have moved to a different state, effectively leaving all of my “safe things” behind (my home, my family and pets, my childhood friends, favorite museums, restaurants, etc.). I have registered with the school’s disability services to get the proper accommodations. My sister (19F, NT*) attends the same school. Things I am struggling with: I am entering the second month of the semester, and have made no real friends. The only meaningful conversations I have are with my sister, with every other interaction being no more than greetings and goodbyes (yes, that includes my roommate, whom I simply coexist with). I am not worried about not having friends, but my parents and psychiatrist have their reservations. I struggle on weekends due to the lack of structure. It is when I feel most overwhelmed by work and other duties and seemingly when my executive functioning deficits are the most prominent. I have been experiencing meltdowns and despite doing my best to implement structure into my weekend, without the incentive to complete a task from another person, I have no motivation to stay focused or even start tasks. There have been a few times where I was able to be productive, but I had been FaceTiming my father for several hours at a time while he continuously reminded me of and talked me through tasks. My parents are busy people and cannot afford to be on video chat for hours at a time. TL;DR: Since starting college, I have made no friends, have experienced meltdowns on weekends due to lack of structure, and consistently struggle to complete tasks independently. Questions: How do I make friends as an autistic person in college? Do I even need to make friends to have a successful college career? How can I implement structure into my weekends? How do I become more independent when managing my schedule and tasks? What are some suggestions that would help my further my success in college as an autistic person?
 35:48  Hey everyone! So, this will be a bit longer, but I still hope to fit everything in as shortly as possible. I was made aware I may have ADHD and Autism around 2 years ago by my now ex-girlfriend. ADHD didn't seem too farfetched, since my brother has a diagnosis 8-9 years ago. With Autism I rejected the idea, well because of ableism. I am 27 and live in Germany. It's quite complicated to get a diagnosis as an adult here and also have the insurance pay for it. I fortunately found a University Clinic which did exactly that, but even though I called there in early January, the earliest appointment was today. The complete year of 2020 I was informing myself, reading books, diagnosis manuals I gobbled down everything I could find. After a while I accepted that I may have Autism also. The amount of hurdles to get appointments for both diagnosis did seem insurmountable, but somehow I managed and I was excited for both at last. In May my newfound psychiatrist did diagnose me with ADHD and I am on medication since then, which helps a lot. But there is this percentage of my perception differences, the way I take specific hurdles and how I cope with this neurotypical world which does not align with ADHD. Or so I thought. The appointment wasn't really short (2 hours total talking time), she even called in a colleague for 10-15 min. In the end she said I don't have Autism, but emotional problems, yadayada, I should do therapy (which I am searching for since January independently, because yes I do have fucking emotional problems). I was taken aback and tried to argue to get why she has this opinion. Then she started retelling some details of our talk, but in a manner I felt weren't really what I wanted to tell her. Like she asked me if my family was rational, and I told her yes very much, but she construed it that my family is cold and that there is pressure to be something (because my father is an orthopedic doctor) but this is not what I meant. My family is very emotional, loving and caring; too much for my liking or everyones good. One of the reasons I do get checked out at that late age is, because my parents never saw a bad thing in being different, they saw it as a badge of honor! So they dismissed all the teachers and acquaintances who said I am not normal. I purposefully didn't check what the diagnostic criteria for Autism are in the last few months to not prime myself to get that diagnosis. I thought the doctor will ask the right and precise questions to get the answers which are relevant. After coming home and being disappointed, furious and very very confused, I researched the diagnostic criteria again and found that she never even asked my about my perception or even those very specific questions my psychiatrist asked my in my ADHD diagnosis back in May. I am questioning so much at the moment and would really like to hear your stories. If you had similar situations. I would also like to know if I should get a second opinion, because it seems like the same fucking hurdles again, with an unending waiting game A-fucking-GAIN. A small part in me is thinking maybe you hoped too much, maybe I developed too much attachment to this diagnosis and I really don't have it. Any advice is welcome! Thank you for reading my ramblings! Love to you all!
 41:58 Hello. I am 24 with autism. I also have a neurodegenerative condition that causes me near-constant migraines and also seizures sometimes. I deal with mystery body issues too like weakness and pain. You can imagine this life has made me very resilient, but I am not able to be independent. I can't work, I make a little money here and there selling art or nudes and stuff lol, and it's enough to take some weight off of my partner. I also do most of the house work and stuff, which I feel is fair and I don't mind it...I do prefer it to be done my way anyways. More comfy that way. But some days I'm much more sick than other days, and I'm having a meltdown inside my head and want to scream and cry for help but my Masking Level is Way Too High and so I just carry on. On the inside, I'm wailing, crying, wanting to die but my mask filters it out and so trying to express this pain to my partner or family or friends but I don't think they get it. They don't realize that if I'm "saying" I'm not okay and if it reads like a not-okay lvl 3/10 that I'm already at a 9/10 and just don't seem like it. I'm highly independent of spirit, and I don't like asking for help, and I especially have a hard time asking for help because it never seems like there's a "good time." I try very hard to respect my partners stress (he's ADHD and bipolar and I admire his resilience) because he supports both of us and I don't want to pile more on top of him. Do y'all ever feel like this mask you've made to maintain function is actually detrimental? Do you ever want to just have a full-blown autistic meltdown, panic attack level, rocking back and forth, expressing thoughts of suicide just to get those inner thoughts and feelings your mask usually filters away, out there? Sometimes I feel like that would be the only way to express truly what's going on inside of me, and how severely I need help. Asking both for advice and solidarity.
 49:06 I told her that I've suspected for a long time that I have autism, but I'm 33 years old and have never been diagnosed. When I was a child, I was diagnosed with ADHD, however. She asked me why I thought I had autism, and I expressed a number of my issues: Hyperfixations/Obsessions, difficulty reading body language and tone of voice, hard time making friends and difficulty flourishing in social settings, being too blunt, taking things literally or being unable to read the underlying context of someone's words or actions, sensory processing issues, overstimulation, and burnout etc. After I expressed this to her, I told her I'd like to get a diagnosis but I wasn't sure where to start. She immediately told me that there was absolutely no world in which I would get a diagnosis at 33 years old, and that she didn't personally think that I'm on the spectrum because I'm 'very verbal' and able to express myself. I'm DFAB (born female) and I thought that was exactly why we have a harder time being diagnosed on the spectrum than DMAB people? We're tend to (but aren't always) better at masking. It actually kind of made me pretty angry that she dismissed me out of hand so readily, when this is something I've struggled with my entire life. It also runs in my family, I am not the only person with these tendencies in my family. TBH she has done this with things I've actually been diagnosed with before seeing her. She has dismissed the idea that I have schizoaffective disorder, even though I have been on an antipsychotic for 8 years and was initially hospitalized in 2014 due to a psychotic break. She's also dismissed the idea that I have C-PTSD, even though again, I've been diagnosed with it. It always seems vaguely petty when she disagrees with me about this stuff, maybe she just feels like I'm talking down to her, I'm not sure.
 54:30 Help dealing with food texture sensitivity
 Hi, so, for all my life I’ve had food texture sensitivity, specifically with a LOT of vegetables and seafood. Even if I love the taste, I hate the texture. Honestly, I’m so sick of it. It has negatively impacted my diet so much, and the only advice I’ve ever been given is to “just get over it,” and to force myself to eat things till I like it. I’ve tried eating things prepared differently, and in small quantities in food, but I react so poorly that I’ll almost puke at the table, or it will bring me to the verge of tears. It’s so embarrassing having to order something without any vegetables, or just basically eliminating entire sections of menus because of it. I want so badly to eat healthy, but it’s so hard, and living on a college campus meal plan, I practically live off the grill items, and have gained so much weight. Is food sensitivity really just something I have to force my way through and be miserable with? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Edit: I would like to add, I’m on a college meal plan, so if I try something, and don’t like it, I really can’t get something else, and end up not having that meal. I also do not have a kitchen in my dorm.
 I only eat milk and biscuits (sometimes cereals) and I gained weight. I don't know how to stop this! I don't even see other foods as foods anymore, but rather items that are not supposed to be eaten, like a jar of body lotion or a bag of pencils. I live with my parents and I have food but I open the fridge and my brain sees no food... I don't understand why! It's been more than 2 months since I slowly started to replace every meal with milk and biscuits and even though I know it's not ok, I can't stop. Do you have any idea that might help or know any food that by itself is a meal, but it's healthier than milk with biscuits that I could eat everyday and slowly get rid of this biscuits addiction?

 7:13 My 9 year old who has ASD and DMDD has been out of control for the last 3 weeks
 My 9 year old who has ASD and DMDD has been out of control for the last 3 weeks. We lost my husband (his dad and absolute favorite person) to a motorcycle accident exactly 4 months ago and my sons grief had been beyond words. Between us (his psychiatrist and I) trying to keep him from falling into a scary depression and him acting up, I think we may have messed up his meds and given him mania. He became hyper aggressive in the last two weeks and extremely difficult to handle. I am DEVASTATED that it had to come to this. I’ve cried like a baby, prayed to my husband to help me get through this, since I have two more little ones at home, and prayed to God to heal my sweet boy’s heart. Seeing him be restrained and taken was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to experience aside from the trauma of my husband’s death. I am feeling guilty, sad, ashamed (of myself and my parenting, not him), lonely, and absolutely desperate for a solution. I’m not really sure what I came here for, but I just know how terrible it is now to have to put your baby into inpatient care at a psychiatric facility. This is heartbreaking.

47:00 I think my 5-year-old son may be on the spectrum
 I think my 5-year-old son may be on the spectrum He takes things very literally (and this leads to frustration) He is highly sensitive to loud situations (he found a recent trip to a stadium sports match really overwhelming) If we shout he can't handle it and reacts violently back He focusses obsessively on things like colouring (but it does calm him down) BUT While he is shy awkward with adults unless he knows them well and trusts them, he's actually very popular with his peer group and loves socialising with other children. He can also be beautifully affectionate with us (on a good day) and can hold eye contact very well. In fact, he loves looking in our eyes. But would barely look at an adult he doesn't know. Does this fit with Autism? Thank you so much.

 Our 6-year-old grandson, who has autism and is nonverbal, has run out of the house naked twice in the last week and was found in a retail store parking lot. Police were involved both times. They live in the city and I'm worried DCFS may get called. Does anyone have any insight/advice so we can try and help the situation? Thank you so much, this is really hard

 7:13 My 9 year old who has ASD and DMDD has been out of control for the last 3 weeks
 My 9 year old who has ASD and DMDD has been out of control for the last 3 weeks. We lost my husband (his dad and absolute favorite person) to a motorcycle accident exactly 4 months ago and my sons grief had been beyond words. Between us (his psychiatrist and I) trying to keep him from falling into a scary depression and him acting up, I think we may have messed up his meds and given him mania. He became hyper aggressive in the last two weeks and extremely difficult to handle. I am DEVASTATED that it had to come to this. I’ve cried like a baby, prayed to my husband to help me get through this, since I have two more little ones at home, and prayed to God to heal my sweet boy’s heart. Seeing him be restrained and taken was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to experience aside from the trauma of my husband’s death. I am feeling guilty, sad, ashamed (of myself and my parenting, not him), lonely, and absolutely desperate for a solution. I’m not really sure what I came here for, but I just know how terrible it is now to have to put your baby into inpatient care at a psychiatric facility. This is heartbreaking.

Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders is back to answer viewer questions about dealing with change, automatic function vs sensory function and more! Check it out!
 
6:36 Dealing with Change
 here is a question, hope its a good one. one of my favorite restaurants is closing soon permanently. i am handling the change well. but how can i handle it better. and I want this to help everyone.
 15:35 Screaming & Automatic Functions Vs. Sensory Function
  Hello, I’m behavior therapists, can you talk about screaming? Can be sensory or automatic reinforcement because no reason for that.
 23:13 My daughter is currently in class for Autism and dyslexia formality and her professor is playing videos on how this works. His suggestion is a sensory room. What if you only have one room and an Autistic student main streamed with 30 other students. What can a teacher do to help that one?
 25:56 How do we know when its time for aba to be over over?
 How do we know when its time for aba to be over over? My 6 year old has mastered almost all of the vb-mapp testing and we are talking about graduating her from aba but I am afraid of that change, as you just discussed. Our BCBA has told us to continue parent training for remaining behaviors and look into social skills classes or other group activities because those would help more than 1-1 adult therapy.
 37:08 My 4-yo is doing well w language but he still sometimes zones out. Bc of Covid we haven't had an in-person eval. Could this be ADHD or is it autism making shifting attention tough? How to work on this?
 45:25 My son was diagnosed with mild autism at the age of four. He is nine but he does not talk . Is there any chance he will ever talk, if yes what advice you can give.
 48:11 I think I might be autistic but idk for sure
 I am so exhausted and tired, and I don’t wanna hurt myself, but it seems like the only thing. The way I stim is by skinpicking my scalp and it sounds bad I don’t know, and I am in a horrible situation and I try to cope by eating. Also, I asked this on another post but are there any autistic advocacy groups that aren’t ravist? I am so scared, and I don’t even know if I will. Am I weak? It feels wrong to be this vulnerable online cause I am scared someone will use it against me but why is the world so horrible to autistics like the fact that stuff like (tw aba therapy mention) aba therapy is legal and doctors you can’t even trust doctors and the thing is diagnosis is so biased, so it is so hard to find others locally. People are just so, and I am so. I feel like everything I say will be taken the wrong way and even when I trust myself in a situation and I handle it in the moment it still replays in my mind and I don’t know what to do. Can you even be yourself when you’re in hell? I have a nonspeaking autistic sibling and it’s so much worse for him and I don’t know what to do. Also, I hate it when people ask me how I am then asking why all these terrible things are happening as if there is a reason justifiable enough. When someone asks me why my heart breaks because it means I have lost another person I could trust. And I don’t hate being autistic, but my mind is so messy I don’t even know how I am. It seems so normal to me but the fact that it’s not to others is just so. I mean listen I don’t get it. One time I did something i thought was normal (I knocked and asked if her water was working because she lives close by and my water does not work) and this lady I barely knew messaged my neighbor and called me “crazy” also I told her how old I was I am like a teen and she is a grown woman. I know I should trust but I have so much to lose if I trust the wrong person. If I hear another blame, I do not deserve I don’t think my mind will cope. I will have to forget everything though it feels like I already have. I mean I will endure but how much will that matter if the pain swallows itself with other parts of my brain I need.
 55:32
 Greetings doctor. My 10 year old son has high functioning autism. He's starting to realize that he is in a special day class and that he is different from the other kids. I'm worried about how this will affect his psyche and how he see's himself. Any advice would be helpful.

Don't miss the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders answering viewer questions again for Ask Dr. Doreen! Dr. Doreen and Shannon discuss Anxiety, ADHD, ABA therapy and more in this episode!

12:17 Will my Child Benefit from ABA Therapy?

Hi Dr. Doreen, My kid is Diagnosed with high functioning autism, will she benefit from ABA therapy, play therapy. Thanks for suggestion/advice.

14:09 How do you differentiate between a "loss" and a tragedy"?

15:41 HSP & Social Anxiety

So I'm 18yo female and I have been months searching about autism and I'm pretty sure that I am autistic myself, and I feel so validated and relieved always that I hear experiences from other autistic people, but since March I had a depressive episode (which probably was caused by a burnout because I just finished high school and started University immediately) and started therapy with a psychologist, I reunited all of my efforts and asked her if I could be on the spectrum and she told me to reunite all of the traits I think make me part of the spectrum, when she read the list, she only said I was a HSP with social anxiety... This is what she told me when we just met, and she said that she doesn't like diagnosis because she believes it can make people restrict themselves to their diagnosis, I don't know how to feel, I can't stop crying while I write all of this, what should I do? Maybe I'm not autistic and just believe it to make myself feel better?

27:54 Is it Natural Behavior for Children to Throw Tantrums & Cry with ABA Therapy?

Follow up: From various forum I read that ABA therapy involve placing instructions and some kids get very upset and tend to tantrum, cry. Is that a natural behavior any advice for parents?

37:30

I have been told I have HFA, I have worked in a laboratory as a Metrologist (scientist) and I have gotten bored. I have decided to become a lawyer. I am in process of doing this. I am finding this boring as well. My therapist told me that career change is typical however, I am having trouble sticking to it. is this HFA or my autism. I find it easy... just like school when I was younger 😴 (also I feel too embarrassed to tell my therapist because I don't want her to think she isn't helpful to me. because she is helpful) (Sometimes I don't tell her I have had a bad day because I feel like she would be upset.) ✅ ok I'm done. (36/f) Is this talk about low functioning autism? Are there cultural queues noted for nonverbal autism children or adolescent girls in particular?

40:55 What programs should I tell my supervisor to look into?

Hello gorgeous ladies. Had a question I don’t think that my child 11 sees the difference between adults and kids. For example when he talks to little kids the expectation is for them to talk back to him 🤦🏻‍♀‍how do we know how he perceives himself. What programs should I tell my supervisor to look into?

46:17 Autism & ADHD

I have an extremely bright, but stubborn 8-year old boy with a new diagnosis of ASD level 2. One of our struggles is his hyperactivity (fast moving, loud talking, acting silly, not listening). We see it a lot at home and school was reporting issues with it at the end of last year. He gets a lot of exercise during the summer, but school is starting soon, and I know that it will be more difficult. Should we wait or be proactive and have him take movement breaks during his day? Also, he refuses to do any calming activity or swinging in his special swing. How do we convince him it will help regulate him? I 'm grateful for your show.
