1. Explore Food away from Meals: Use food for other purposes than eating to increase the child’s exposure to the food in fun, interactive ways.  For example, learning to match colors with orange carrots & red bell peppers gets those nutritious foods in your child’s hands and that’s a safe, fun place to start!  Here’s a video demonstrating that process....

As a parent of a child with special needs, I have learned the importance of celebrating even the smallest accomplishments and counting each and every blessing that comes my way.  However, from time to time I have to stop and remind myself exactly where Jaxon started his journey, where we are today, and where we hope to be tomorrow.  I am constantly reading stories of recovery, stories of new diagnoses, and stories of parents who  fear that their newborn might eventually fall somewhere on the spectrum.  This month, I am making it a priority to “get back to the basics”…celebrate each and every milestone, rejoice in the fact that RECOVERY IS REAL, and  reflect on the many blessings Jaxon, as......

October has begun and the parade of holidays is upon us; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas are all around the corner.Many families I work with experience a heightened level of challenge with their child on the autism spectrum during the holiday season.Big family gatherings can be stressful (and result in meltdowns).Exposure to foods not on your child’s diet can be stressful (and result in meltdowns).A lack of structure and predictable routine can be stressful (and results in meltdowns)….The bottom line is that for a child who has a sensory processing disorder, social challenges/anxiety, biomedical digestive issues and a need for a calm and predictable routine, the holidays can be a time of heightened challenge for the whole family.Just last week......

Growing up, I wasn’t familiar with the military. I didn’t have any friends in the military, and although I had heard the phrase quite a bit, I had no idea what it meant to be an “army brat.” After marrying into the Air Force, I learned very quickly that although my children would get to experience many different communities, countries, and cultures, they would be bounced around from school to school. As exciting as this is for most children, it is not usually the case for a child with ASD.  ...

Back to School. Those iconic words ring loud and clear throughout this country from coast to coast. As a youngster I remember that phrase signaling the end of summer. A collective school-age sigh would be followed by a dutiful call to get back to work. Now, when mid-August comes around, a parental chorus of "Finally!" can be heard. Let's get these kids back to work! Back to the structure! Back to the routine! We can only do so much during the summer months… and give yourself a lot of credit, you deserve it. You deserve credit for normalizing your summer as much as you can. Give yourself credit for trying to keep up the routine as best you can....

I just finished watching a video of one of one of my private clients, Patty, playing with her son, Eric. What I saw was a devoted mother trying to help her child stay on task with a variety of activities: puzzles, matching cards and reading books. She was working hard and it looked like she was "trying to pull teeth."Any time there was physical contact, he began to giggle (the cutest giggle I have ever heard, by the way). Then he began throwing cards and tried to climb on her back. I watched with interest and it became very clear to me that I was not watching a child who was behaving "badly," I was watching a child who was......

Many researchers, physicians and other practitioners believe that neurofeedback should be an early intervention in the autistic spectrum. Given what we now know about brain function and the role neurofeedback can play in enhancing it, I believe that it should be the very first thing undertaken by any family whose child is suspected of starting to exhibit autistic symptoms. Families already involved in other therapies should consider adding neurofeedback in early as a high priority, as it provides foundational support for the success of those other therapies. ...

Jeffrey had very low eye contact, used language almost entirely in a non-social way (repeating videos and movies he had seen), would tantrum for HOURS, was still in diapers, had a very limited diet and erratic sleep schedule, and was very limited in the activities he would play.Jeffrey shut the......

When it comes to living the life of a military spouse, things can be fun, crazy, and sometimes overwhelming. Before having children, the thought of moving around every three or so years sounded kind of exciting. Well, throw in a child with special needs and my idea of exciting took on a whole new understanding. My son was diagnosed with autism at age 3, and right smack in the middle of our PCS (Permanent Change Of Station) from the East Coast to the Midwest. It was a very hard, confusing, and frustrating move for everyone. After two years in Illinois we moved to Colorado to live near family while my husband was deployed; another tough move....

With May fast approaching I hope you have considered coming to Autism One. I remember hearing about Autism One (A1) while I was at another autism conference about 4 years ago. At the time I knew nothing about A1 but I heard it was a really fantastic conference with diverse information and it was touted at the best autism conference out there. When I finally got a chance to attend, which was last year, I was completely blown away by this conference. For me it felt like home. I quickly made friends with a few other attendees and got right to business planning out all the lectures I would attend. ...

Financial and money matters affect everyone. Learning how to deal with savings, everyday costs and budgeting is something that many of us try to do to the best of our ability. For someone who is diagnosed with any of the autistic spectrum disorders and in particular their parents, managing money is an issue that can sometimes cause worry and upset, especially as children turn into young adults and both parties have to come to terms and embrace the fact that they want their independence and to be able to look after their own concerns. Very often, this can be an issue that ends up being put further back down the “to do” list, but is a crucial element of growing......

“A growing body of research indicates that autism and hypothyroidism are connected. Yet routine blood tests frequently miss this connection.

However, because their blood tests may be normal, their low cellular TH level frequently are overlooked.”...

Potty training any child is difficult, but potty training a child on the autism spectrum or a child who has another developmental disability can be particularly trying. Our little ones like their routines and are often resistant to any changes, and they often have sensory issues and ritualized and repetitive behaviors which make it difficult to transition from eliminating in their diapers (which, remember, is all they have known, and with which they’ve gotten very comfortable) to the potty (which is a new, unfamiliar place, with new sights, sounds, and feels to process). Furthermore, little ones with limited expressive language capacity aren’t able to easily tell us when they need to go to the potty, or what they don’t like......

Losing sleep, worrying, irritable, having difficulty focusing? Life’s pressures have you feeling overwhelmed? You may be stressed, but you’re not alone. All of us experience times when our cup is too full, overflowing with more than we feel we can manage.   A little stress is healthy. It keeps us alert and ready to take on a challenge, and then we return to a normal state, ready to respond when we need to.  But chronic stress can put us into survival mode, an autonomic nervous system reaction called the fight or flight response.  ...

"Is my child normal?"That’s a gnawing sensation a mother can’t escape, that sinking feeling something is “off” with your child. The doctor says your child is fine, your friends and family say you worry too much, and yet the thought burrows into your gut, sitting like a lead weight, until the heartbreak kicks in: “My child is not developing normally.”Childhood developmental milestones are more than how soon your child walks and talks. They offer important insight into whether your child’s brain and body are developing appropriately. Delays in sitting, walking, or talking could mean an increased risk of such brain development disorders as autism, Tourette’s syndrome, or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) later. ...

The idea that a child with special needs could be bullied is heartbreaking. Unfortunately, this is the reality. For members of this demographic, unique behaviors can draw attention. Surprising to some, the reverse can also be true; a child with special needs may be easily mistaken as the bully. Either way, bullying is a national problem.   New research shows that children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder are far more likely than their peers to be bullied. A recent study found almost 50 percent of children diagnosed with Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome have been bullied, compared to just over 10 percent of the general teen population. ...

What usually happened when serving those meals was that my son, who has autism and motivated the dietary change, would take two bites of whatever food that I had slaved over and then get up and run away from the table. I would bring him back to his plate, cajole him to eat more, and maybe he would take one more bite. Mealtime in our home became, in a word, miserable.Soon I realized that something needed to change if we were......
