Don't miss this episode of Ask Dr. Doreen! The founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh answers questions about gut problems, Autism Recovery, Systematic Desensitization and more! Check it out!

Questions Answered:

06:32 - are gut problems prevalent for people like myself, I'm having a colonoscopy next month, I've heard all about gut biomes and stuff like that, I just want answers and should I refuse a colonoscopy.

13:00 - 3 year old grandson in Canada - Right now he is not verbal.  He repeats a few words for example apple or banana but not clearly but he tries sometimes.  It seems that he learns and thean he forgets. He has 9 hours ABA a week.  I believe it is not enough but in Canada they believe that he is still very young and doesn’t need more.  Recently he developed visual swimming.  He constantly looks at a window, daylight or lights.  Since he started doing this he doesn’t want to play with any toy.  I cannot catch his attention at all;  no eye contact, no play.

I hear you saying that your son recovered.  How did you do that?  How was your road to recovery?  Did he have severe autism?

Is there a way to reduce his visual stimming and making him more attentive?

24:12 – Overcoming challenging Behaviors Free on Skills for Parents and Teaching Communication Modules for Educators

28:40 - would you recommend putting a 7 year old with moderate autism that is functionally verbal in a General Ed. class for half of the day in school?

34:00 - how would Dr. Doreen treat repetitive movements. its automatically reinforcing and hard for him to be aware of his movements. could you please tell us how you would reduce hand flapping behavior? its affecting his academics and he also has ADHD. Can you talk about continuing to follow a whole food diet and continuing organic and eating healthy.

39:18 - How does one help with stimming from spitting? When younger was easier to replace with a harmonica and now older, what can i replace it with?

42:55 - He is spitting in sinks and outside. Is it a oral motor texture thing?

43:43 -  (Systematic Desensitization) Good afternoon I wrote in to Ms. Shannon my child's issues with dogs and no one can help she even gave me several resources that I tried Eagles couldn't help and autism speak I reached out several times the lady said she couldn't help and would try to get me resources but never did last week Noah also non verbal ran in front of a vehicle from dogs and my worst nightmare flashed before me .What is the best way to desensitized on my own not many resources in my area and just own my owner So do you have any special people that could help no family other than my other granddaughter that also has Autism? Thank you for any advice he wont go outside?

54:03 - When do kids with ASD give first words? because my brother who just turned 2 with ASD has 10 words

55:34 - Please I'd like to know more about eliminating or reducing scripting. My 6 year old son who is on the Autism spectrum scripts often and it gets in the way of therapy and general learning.

It's time for another episode of Ask Dr. Doreen! Dr. Doreen, the founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders answers viewer questions about Potty Training, Apraxia and more! Check it out!
 
Questions Below: 
11:38 -  Hi, We have been trying to potty train my son for couple for months now with help of ABA and now he can void when we take him but won't tell us when he has to go. He would have accidents if we don't take him. What will be your suggestion to get him to use toilet on his own or tell us when he needs to go so we can take him?1
 24:41 - Hello ladies, I’m the mother of the 10yr old who had the dentist traumatic experience. Even though he’s having better days and less self harming. He has become very obsessed with me, wanting to be with Me constantly, sometimes I’ll be in the kitchen and he’ll come breathing really hard and holds on from my arm, then I need to stop what I’m doing for safety reasons of course, if I’m riding in the Passenger side, while my husband drives he wants me to sit in the back with him, when I sit in the bank he starts holding on to me, sometimes I can finish my hose chores because he needs me with him What can I do to help him with anxiety, that doesn’t require for me to be with him at all times? We finally have an appointment with the psychiatrist next Wednesday the 24th. Thanks in advance.
 29:11 - When my child earns the iPad he watches the same video or weird videos his latest is Super nanny and he just repeats he tries to script it and use it into context it’s weird when I told my supervisor they said have him wear headphones🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️it’s his time. I pad is his highest reinforcer and if he is gonna watch something I don’t want him to learn bad behaviors. He stems on these videos so bad. I don’t think that was the best advice. Please help. The video says shut up, etc and he is saying that to adults. Please help.
 35:12 - My 11 year old autistic son is obsessed with picking leaves, flowers, pulling full branches off of trees. How do we help end this behavior?
 46:32 - Hello. Any tips on getting my shy, quiet, home schooled 7th grader to try new things? He has Autism and slow processing, but is on grade level. We are open to anything other than you tube videos. He says 'no' to pretty much anything and everything. No matter how short and effortless the activity is. He has no ideas of things he likes. We are desperate to expand his horizons! Thanks.
 55:48 – How you can gain access to the following Free IBT Parent E-Learning Courses: “Overcoming Challenging Behaviors” and “Teaching Communication”
 57:02 - Can the skills program help with apraxia of speech?

The founder of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh joins us to answer viewer questions! Check it out! Questions answered below:

 8:22 - My brother (14) has autism and ADHD as well as some other things that aren't currently important. His special interest is cats. We have a few, and I understand that he likes talking about them, but every single conversation somehow delves into him talking about cats. I'm not being dramatic, you can ask him anything and his response will somehow be related to cats/delve into the conversation of cats. It's maddening. Earlier today I was trying to eat breakfast and he went off on some tangent about cat genetics. I was seriously trying to ignore him but for whatever reason it was just getting on my nerves. I hate that I have to go eat alone just so I can eat peacefully. I said, word for word, "Shut up, nobody cares about cats, its f****ing annoying," My parents saw red and my brother was quiet. We managed to finish breakfast before they said anything. Despite the fact that my parents were trying to burn holes into me with glares, it was honest to god the most peaceful breakfast I have ever had. They basically grounded me until they think I've learned my lesson so I'll probably be grounded until they forget I'm supposed to be grounded. They're calling me ablest while ignoring the fact that I'm struggling with him. I don't see why I have to put up with him all the time, I just want to eat with my parents in peace. But of course, that's not allowed because everything has to be comfortable for him. Despite the fact that I thought I was in the right at the time, they're making me feel really guilty and I'm having a pretty serious internal debate so I bring my query to you instead. Am I the a**hole? Just adding that I've tried asking politely several times in the past and he just ignores me. My parents also don't care on my feelings, they just want him comfortable so talking to them is useless. What should I do, I love him, but this is driving me up the wall.
 22:44 - Follow up: an appointment with the psychiatrist hopefully not too many days after. He is now on 2mg of guanfacine since Sunday, since he was on 1mg for 4 weeks with no result.we will stay on guanfacin
 Until we can have an appointment with a psychiatrist and then maybe they can put him on Xanax. My question is. We took a break from zoom classes since he was having panic attacks and bad anxiety, It’s been close to 3 weeks and he’s still having them but I’m concerned that he will regress if we take a really long break. But it was really hard for him to do a few minutes of work with his anxiety
 25:01 - How to deal with new aggression behavior he is hitting Pinching. He is using calm. He is 5 with ASD working on functional communication
 41:31 - I have a 4.5 year old nonverbal son. Wanted to know how I can increase his joint attention. He’s aware of his family and doesn’t interact so much of us but also has separation anxiety so he wants us
 44:49 - 3 year old in ABA, speech, OT has was allocated 24 hours ABA but she only sits through about 2.5 hours for 6 days a week approx 12. Started ABA in Oct 19 home based Aba providers keep changing
 With the provider due to turnover or scheduling changes how can I get consistency in ABA 3 year old does not mask so she cannot go to a center. Also how can I encourage more language she talks but Not in line with 3 year olds without ASD. She only talks to request things not for conversations or if I ask her a question she may or may not answer How is spontaneous 2-way communication developed right now I coach her how to respond to questions by modeling And writing because she reads
 47:56 - We worked with CARD for many years to learn and support a now adult with ASD. Always lost and shocked as to what to say when I hear professionals who speak so negatively about ABA. Any advice?
 53:51 - I’m currently changing providers because our supervisor said that increasing hours isn’t going to help my son and added they are only here to teach us parents Aba
 56:49 - Quinton is now constantly playing with his spit- he does it when he's bored, whiles he's playing after he gets "in trouble". It really doesn't matter what he's doing in the day he will play with it, its distracting him during bedtime and its giving me overload hearing him play with it in his mouth, it makes me want to gag. How do I extinct that behavior. He won’t chew gum. i give him bubbles and playdough- but it’s not working.
