09:35 - How to deal with depression? My son autistic 10 years old and most of the time is depressed. How can I deal with this?

 

20:13 – Medication for depression and anxiety

 

23:34 - My 7 years old son clenchs his jaw like an underbite . He does this like it is his stimming. I keep telling him to close his mouth correctly and He does it but how to make him aware because his lips are getting dry and I imagine that can cause pain in his jaw.

27:36 - How can I deal with when my son is in his head to bring him back to interact with us . Telehealth is difficult some times. Regaining his attention. Any suggestions?

29:57 - What is y'alls thoughts on the covid vaccine, there is a lot of hesitancy including from my own parents, some due to the wakefield paper, some due to other things. Do y'all recommend it?

38:41 – Hello Ladies, I would like to ask for help with my son who just a few weeks ago started having intense behaviors. Which include doing rituals like tapping on things, going back to step on the floor, running towards the door of the house, running towards the kitchen wall, he is also crying out of nowhere, screaming, asking for help and saying things like “Don’t take me” and “I don’t want to die”. When my husband or myself try to stop him from doing some of the rituals he becomes aggressive towards us or himself. I’m not sure where all this behavior came from but it all started around Christmas time. Prior to the procedure the behavior starting he had a dental procedure to remove two baby teeth that were not coming out on their own and adult teeth were already coming in. The experience was traumatic. They had to strap him down because he was trying to hit. He had never had a procedure like that done before. The whole time from start to finish he cried, screamed and asked for help. It was the most traumatizing day I swear. I feel like all these behaviors started the day after the dentist. He has never had such rigid behavior before. He seems scared and super anxious it almost looks like he has panic attacks a few times a day. I asked him the other day after he had calmed down why he was squeezing his head. He replied that he heard a “Chin-Chin” Type of sound and that he wanted to touch his brain. He also added that he couldn’t put his body back together and that there were a lot of sick people dying. Please help. Help me, this is really terrible seeing him. He looks like he lost he’s so lost and almost like he can’t control his body or his brain. Please, I don’t know how to help him and I don’t know how much longer I can see him like this. Thank you.

47:58 – At what age can EFT Tapping be affective with a child with trauma?

51:27 - wish I knew how to handle my brother, even after many years I still don't know how to prevent his anger bursts. He's in his 60's now and still unpredictable and has a very short fuse.

56:10 - Is it normal for schools to not want to be on board with your child ABA program? I thought ABA was generalized? They want to do their own thing and I wanted ABA to be a part of his IEP.

Make sure you leave us a review to let us know how we are doing or what you would like to see more of!

Questions asked:

05:45 - I would love to know how to handle a child who gets into a meltdown because we refuse to give him chips or anything that is not good for him. We are tired of giving in to him just to keep the peace. He is verbal and turning 25 soon.

10:40 - hi Dr. Doreen my question is about diets, my mother is trying to force me to change my eating habits and I am not happy about that, yelling matches have occurred, etc. I know that it is good for my health but my liver is diseased and has problems. How can I as an autistic person handle it perfectly?

17:45 - I have a question for Dr. Doreen please? My son is 4.8 years old having 30 hours of ABA therapy for 9 months now. He is speaking small sentences but he gets random bouts of laughter which are very difficult to control. We are treating yeast as well. Should I ignore it or respond? Please help me , desperate Mom.

22:40 - How can adults who are diagnosed with autism as adults learn social skills? Also are there resources available for those who are diagnosed as an adults? In my research it seems like if you were diagnosed as an adult your diagnosis is less legitimate.

29:00 – Free IBT Parent E-Learning Course

32:40 - My son is finally starting ABA services again in home since COVID began. He is 12. Its 5 days a week 2 hours per day. He’s doing a focused program. He is starting vision therapy next week. VT wants to work on Fixation and Convergence. Do you know if there are any programs/goals I can ask his BCBA for to aide with those Vision Therapy goals?

38:50 - she was diagnosed last year at 6. I need help. Maybe a list of things to do to help her and help myself. I am at my wits end. When she has her meltdowns, she hits, screams, throws things. I don’t know what to do?

52:20 – Would you be willing to go talk to the Prime Minister of Canada?

54:00 - 4 year old with severe and receptive delay. Struggling to follow directions and putting objects in mouth how to help? Also bites on wrists. Thank You
