Autism Live Parent to Parent: ABA Basics

Shannon Penrod, author of Autism: Parent to Parent, gives a basic, but thorough talk about what ABA is, especially when used to treat autism. This is a talk that is geared toward parents but is also ideal for individuals who are on the spectrum and have heard negative things about ABA, to decern what is the intent and practice of ABA. When armed with this knowledge people can easily spot situations in which people are claiming to do ABA, but instead are doing something that is harmful or potentially harmful. We can all agree that individuals on the spectrum have a right to be considered and heard, their sensory issues have to be taken into consideration when teaching them, but they are entitled to learn, like all other people on the planet.

Shannon Penrod, Host of Autism Live, gives great tips for improving your child’s diet without creating bigger problems.  Food is a primary reinforcer, it makes us happy, and we all feel very particular about what we like and don’t like to eat.  How many of us would be happy if we were told we could only eat wax beans from now on and we could never have ice cream again in our lives?  We wouldn’t be happy.  We might even throw a tantrum!  Why would our kids on the spectrum feel any differently?  They don’t.  So what is the solution?  Do we just let our kids live on nuggets and French fries so we don’t upset the delicate balance?  That’s not a great solution for our kid’s health.  Is there another solution?  Shannon gives us tips on finding the happy medium, so our kids will eat healthier foods and still be happy.

Autism Live Parent to Parent: How To Teach Compliance the Right Way

We all dream of having happy children that we can say, “Put on your shoes!  It’s time to get in the car and go to school!” and they just do it.  But when you have a child on the spectrum with a communication delay or disorder, it can seem like an impossible dream.  Even worse you hear horror stories about children who were taught to be compliant so the didn’t know how to protect themselves from other’s ill wishes.  It’s a nightmare.  None of us wants children who are just blindly compliant.  The question is, can you teach children, even those on the spectrum, to comply with appropriate requests while teaching them how to have boundaries to keep themselves safe.  The answer is YES, but it doesn’t happen overnight, so we should all get started.  Autism Live host Shannon Penrod shares her top tips for teaching compliance the right way, so they feel empowered to say, No! as well as saying Yes!

We have an urgent appointment with his psychiatrist on Tuesday but I wanted to hear from other parents and experts. He has abruptly begun exploding violently with siblings over such offenses as “she was whining!” (he spit in 5 y/o sisters food when my back was turned and justified it because she was whining.) I hear a thud and ‘ow’ from 3 year old in the other room. “He was going too slow on the stairs!” (He hit him into the wall.) I don’t know what to do. I am terrified that he will seriously injure a siblings. All I can think of is the next time this happens we go to the hospital because I don’t know what else to do. please help me 18:48 We are dealing with aggression. If my son is told “no” or can not do what he wants when he wants he tells us “you don’t love me anymore? I”m going to leave and not come back.” How do we curb this? Not to mention he does throw things and hits but not all the time. 31:14 Tylenol Class Action Lawsuit PSA Sponsored by Shapiro Legal Group 33:10 Is autism and ADHD Related? 36:29 Can sensory issues can increase with age? 37:59 Is there a good trick to start pronouncing words more distinctly? Pointing and repeating the same words over again and mispronouncing words. 41:46 Do you think DRA is an appropriate intervention for a teen adjusting or maybe itching by private parts in public? Total time engaging in that behavior might be about 4 seconds long, 2 or 3 times a day. 47:09 ASD & Device Addiction 53:20 My non-verbal almost 3 year old son is still breastfeeding periodically through the day and night and is still sleeping in our bed. He’s also a terrible eater and never tells me when he’s hungry other than my assumption when he pushes me towards a chair and tries lifting my shirt. I don’t really know where to begin to wean him because I don’t know what he understands and I know he uses it for comfort. He wakes up several times a night to nurse and switch sides which means I’m awake too and getting angry that I’m not getting sleep. What do I do? Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

Let’s Talk Autism with Shannon & Nancy with guests Tamara Mark, Marc Olsen and Thiago Dadalt from the documentary film BEYOND

Shannon Penrod and Nancy Alspaugh- Jackson give a Wyart update and interview the makers of the documentary film, Beyond.   #Autism #Beyond #Documentary BEYOND follows Tamara Mark, a once rising Broadway/Hollywood star, to a full-time single mother of two nonverbal autistic adults, Ian and Harry. She now fights for her dream to build a community for those alike to live better and safer.   Filmmaker Thiago Dadalt and Autism Advocates Tamara Mark and Marc Olson will answer questions live – in studio.   FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/beyond.filmdoc Instagram: www.instagram.com/beyond.doc Movie website: www.docbeyond.com Production: www.dellenmillerproductions.com Beyond Ranch Foundation: www.beyondranchfoundation.org   Tamara was one of 8 chosen to star in the film that Mr. Poitier had searched the country for and had auditioned 7,500 people. This life altering opportunity, led her to moving to Los Angeles, where she continued to study and work as an actress in many TV shows, film, voice-over and commercials.   The tragic and sudden death of Peggy Furey, her mentor and acting coach, shifted her perspective on her purpose in life. Tamara left show business for a time and sought deeply within to find what brought a deeper meaning to her life.   After travels through South America and India, she returned to Los Angeles, where she met the man who became her husband and father of her two children. When Ian and Harry were diagnosed with autism, her focus became entirely them and a search to heal, help, and care for them. When the marriage fell apart, Tamara raised these two boys, now young men, entirely on her own.   During the pandemic, she reconnected with a friend she had known in high school. Marc had moved to Australia over 40 years ago and after the passing of his wife, his kids convinced him to go on Facebook, where the two of them found one another. Over two years they video messaged until travel opened up again and he and Tamara finally got to meet physically. Their love story has proven to be the catalyst for all the beauty unfolding and the passion together to build a purposeful future for Ian and Harry and others like them.   It is an epic tale of love against all odds.   MARC OLSON is the Co-Founder, Treasurer, and serves on the Board of Directors for Beyond Ranch Foundation. Marc Olson is a dual citizen of both the United States and Australia. Marc has resided in Australia for the last 43 years of his life. He held many jobs in his early years in Australia, from sugar cane farm worker, fruit picker, island resort kitchenhand and barperson to abattoir worker in the cattle industry where he decided to return to university to study accounting. Upon completion of his studies Marc gained employment as an accountant in the Sugar Industry where he worked for 15 years holding senior accounting positions. Moving on to becoming the State Accountant for WIN Television media company for 11 years, the last 3 years also holding the position of State Head Office – Station Manager as well as the State Accounting function.   The last 7 years of his working career he held the position of Chief Financial Officer for a civil construction group of companies. After the passing of his wife of 35 years marriage, urged by his children to reconnect to the world via Facebook (which he loathed), he reconnected with Tamara Mark, an old high school friend. It soon became apparent that Tamara had the love, strength, and resilience that held the future for him.   After almost 2 years of old school dating via video messenger and a country locked down in COVID protocols where he wasn’t even allowed to leave the country, they physically reunited in Pasadena, CA. Their loving union is now focused on a future for Tamara’s sons Ian and Harry and the severe autistic communities across the world. Marc and Tamara have a strong vision for the future of this population that currently has no future for long term care solutions.

Tune in and check it out!  6:55 Parents Are not Willing to Try New Things Dr. Doreen how do you help parents who are so demoralized that they aren’t willing to try new things?  I work with a young man who has significant challenges, but I believe there is so much progress left to be uncovered.  Mom is very tired and overwhelmed and as a result often asks us not to work on new targets.  I don’t want to push her, but I know she wants what is best for her child.  What do you advise? 16:52 When do Kids with Autism Talk? When do kids talk with autism? My son is 6 and has been getting speech since 3. 20:02 now that my son 5 I am terrified that soon he will be in grade 1 with regular kids. How do I get over this anxiety that is eating me up? 26:36 my son is 3.5yrs old. he has been in ABA with CARD, so I’m assuming its good ABA, since September. my question is it seems as if get a behavior done, he replaces it with a new behavior and if so will this be the rest of my life constantly trying to diminish behaviors? meant to say is this normal? if so will this be the rest of my life trying to diminish behaviors? 34:32 Do you recommend an assessment for a 17-year-old, or should we just manage the challenges without a formal assessment? what type of help is there for a 17 year old with mild autism? 39:30 Is vegan B12 as potent as B12 shots? 40:58 My Child is having trouble sleeping My son hasn’t had a good sleep for 7 days. He’s awake all night and sleeps 1-2 hours during the day. So much energy still. I’m burned out. Tried meds to make him sleep but no help. No signs of pain or sickness. Eats well. 43:15 Is Regression Normal with Lack of Therapy? My son was without services he recently is finally getting services through school and at home such as behavioral therapy and speech therapy. My son is seven years old. I see that he has regressed, is that normal because of the lack of therapy? 44:09 Does a mild autistic child learns behaviors from other autistic kids in an inclusive school system? 50:11 How do I Teach my Son how to Blend Sounds? Hi and thank you for your wonderful show. We are in Norway and currently don't have Aba, we do intend to travel and start again soon. My son can imitate gross motor, fine motor, oral motor, 2 step imitation and can verbally imitate all phonics except m and n, he can also discriminate between 1 or 2 sounds in verbal imitation, yet we we struggle to blend sounds. I know there's no easy answer but any advice on how to start would be greatly appreciated. 55:06 Hello, my child is 6yrs on the spectrum. He has being receiving ST when he was 3+ but still not using sentences, difficulties forming his own words, lack of social skills. 59:21 is it too late (in terms of recovery) to do 40hrs ABA at home for a eight year old boy? He used to be non-verbal but since a year uses one word to communicate. We are now working sentences. 1:01:32 Coming up on Autism Live! Click here to Watch this episode on YouTube!

Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is discussing the best methods for potty training boy and answering viewer questions LIVE! Tune in and check it out! #PottyTraining #Autism #parentingtips https://www.autismnetwork.com/category/ask-dr-doreen/ https://www.tiktok.com/@askdrdoreen https://www.instagram.com/askdrdoreen/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWSL-fAgvt3qo5yGwP4SUUQ   12:53 Methyl B12 Shots 17:25 Bullying Hi. How can I help my middle schooler that gets relentlessly teased by classmates. The school knows and is trying their best and has a strict bullying policy. It's mostly verbal, some throwing snow in his face and laughing. He is such a target! Sometimes he can handle it, but other times he gets so upset it leads to throwing chairs and desks. He walks away, tries comebacks, self talk to boost confidence, anything to reduce the size of his target, but it's getting worse. What else can he try or can I help him with? Better coping skills? 27:26 Happy new year to my favorite duo. It’s Taren from Louisiana again (w/3.5 yr old) I’m wondering if all autistic individuals struggle with academics? My boy is still in a full time ABA program and will be for as long as I can keep him there, but wondering for the future. Is school harder for our kids? Thanks guys! 33:47 How do you know when your child needs monthly B12 Shots? 35:27 I am nervous as all be. i am planning on going to a Santa performers conference/convention i'm Gatlinburg in April. i am nervous because one this event happens every 2 years., and i will most likely be the only on the spectrum. i never went to an in person conference before. my mom and stepdad are worried since they cant come to the convention center with me. I didn't register yet due to this. i need advice from Dr. Doreen and Shannon on this. this might help others on going to comic cons and similar things. 40:49 Dr. Doreen, my 10 yr old son was just reevaluated (as required by our insurance) and we were just given an added diagnosis of Dysgraphia, and ADD. My concern is with the Dysgraphia. The doctor said it is in his processing, mentally, and that hand writing and technical aids are just one piece. It is a cause of his comprehension issues. Everything I search talks about that only. We are waiting for the complete report. We had a face to face to review the results, and will have the written report next week. What do you recommend? Who are we supposed to see? Therapy, support? 47:51 Hi my 3 years old son starts to pee in the potty 100% whenever I bring him to the bathroom. However, he doesn't say "I want to poop or I want to pee" (need to improve his communication skills). Should I need to wait until his communication is getting better? or is it okay to start to the potty training? 49:13 Potty Training Advice I started to potty train a child at the age between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 till now the child is going to be 5 later on this year and it is off and on. ​I have done everything I can and it is being destory:( 52:21 Mixed Receptive Expressive Disorder I was wondering if expressive language comes after receptive one. My son receptive language is exploding. 54:38 I think I found a doc I want to use via telehealth from Taca. No medmaps locally, and our local pediatrician hasn't been helpful at all. Thanks 58:16 What time do you watch the show? https://poll.app.do/what-time-do-you-watch-download-the-show?fbclid=IwAR3ZWrFVo6RLx9vIA1B7uJ_81JEcGyMlrbO0LVtEfzoadaMap4D7UJbK1dY 1:00:19 What to expect on the show this week!

I have a question concerning a child who does have a diagnosis and is non verbal, has a few words can say ABC's. but hums alot. Will humming stop if language is developed? 22:35 Omega-3's My son is 11 years old and his language is getting so much better. I recommend a high quality omega-3's 24:01 Risperdal Could you discuss the use of Risperdal as a treatment for a 4 year old, minimally verbal boy who has great trouble focusing. 29:10 What does it mean when a child starts to say random words? Hi Dr Doreen, my son has started saying real words randomly since December and he still does it every day and with a new word or repeat what he said previously. It is not functional but what does this mean? 32:37 Does brain function ever get better for our kids? 34:53 My son doesn’t hum but he does make some noises. NOW, I am finally able to ask him and he gives me answer as to what he is doing. Like he’ll say “Im thinking about jump scares on Five Nights at Freddy”. That is some video game be is really into. He plays it one hour a day but I’m just happy he’s able to tell me why he’s doing the “noises” and “hand flapping” now. He didn’t used to be able to tell me the why. 37:56 Does tongue tie impede his speech as growing? It was not a problem in my son's earlier age. Could you give any tips recovering from the tongue tie surgery? 40:27 What about Stem Cells Therapies? 42:11 Noah is still non verbal now 13 years old How to I encourage Noah to go outside the house. 49:18 Using the Toilet how do I get my 4year old do number 2 in the toilet. he is good at standing to pee. but won't do #2 , he goes to get me a pull up so he can go in it. He doesn't have a problem sitting on the toilet, he just won't go.  51:51 Encouraging Parents after lack of progress Any ideas on how to convince my grandchild's parents? They are discouraged at his lack of progress and are afraid they will miss the window for teaching him necessary skills and language. 55:08 Potty Training (Standing up vs Sitting Down Do you have opinions on teaching boys to stand up to pee vs sitting down. ABA originally taught my son to sit down. So that’s what he does, but times change and I had another BCBA tell me I need to teach him standing up. She made some valid points so now I’m wondering do I need to go that route now? He’s 14. 55:47 Any suggestions on how to stop head banging? It’s decreased 70% in the last 3 years but we haven’t been able to extinguish it completely. 1:01:39 Coming up this week!

Ask Dr. Doreen - How to Handle Tantrums & Much More!

Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is discussing and answering viewer questions about tantrums and more LIVE! Tune in and check it out! Recording December 13, 2022   8:03 Help!  How do I deal with my son’s tantrums.  I feel like no matter what I do it is wrong, in someone’s eyes.  I am terrified to go out anymore because I am afraid he will have a tantrum and I won’t be able to know what to do.   17:17 During tantrums/meltdowns I get so emotional and overwhelmed and freeze , calming myself first is big thing for me   32:26 Age Appropriate Toys here is a question i want to ask. its not for me but i am curious about it. for example a kids special interest is paw patrol and its all over the Christmas list. and the therapist or another person says he needs a new age appropriate interest and there was no paw patrol under the tree. i heard about a similar story with Shannon. i would like to hear that story and how to handle a situation like that. I'm asking out of curiosity and helping other people.   41:38 My son gets upset and curses at teachers at school hello, my son 12 yrs old. When upset at school and sometimes home will curse at the teachers or aide. sometimes he will hit and always apologize right after, they have been trying to teach him what he can say or do when he's upset, he becomes mad when he cant have something or when he has to do something he does not want to do, he once said to the aid I'm going to kill you when he was mad.   47:03 My 11 Year Old Tantrums Every Time we are in Traffic. Good morning. My 11 year old son is extremely bright, has friends, hobbies and participates in sports. Our problem is when we are in the car and we get stuck in traffic he has a meltdown of crying, yelling, hyperventilating, and internalizing the situation. He'll say what did I do to deserve this? It looks like a panic attack. We have tried a car bag with books, fidgits, iPad, but he won't touch it. He will ask over and over to find out how long the wait will be, but sometimes we don't have cell service. It's like he needs information, but even if we know he still doesn't settle down. What can we do? Traffic is a part of life. Thank you   52:58 Help Controlling the No Reason Laugh   55:17 Feeling Overwhelmed with New School and Resources in a New City. Last month I moved to a new city seeking more resources and better school. We also started seeing a Maps doc and I’m so thankful for everything but I’m so overwhelmed how do moms do this.   1:00:22 Coming up on Autism Live!   #Tantrums #Autism #Parenting Autism Network Website TikTok: @AskDrDoreen Instagram: @AskDrDoreen Autism Network Website  Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

He is nonverbal, classified as intellectually disabled, and severely autistic. He is a very sweet little boy, and I love him very much. He needs a lot of special care and is emotionally and mentally more like a very young two year old. He goes to autistic specialized preschool and absolutely loves it. I am having some difficulty with recent behaviors and the school isn’t really helping with ideas. He likes scripting from YouTube videos. Mostly nursery rhymes and songs with alphabet and numbers. The scripting in itself is not a problem. The main problem is that he does not control the volume of his voice at all, and he will script literally nonstop day and night. Most children when they wake at night would become bored and go back to sleep, but he is perfectly happy to entertain himself for several hours on end. Does anybody have any suggestions how to help him understand there is times he cannot do these behaviors or at least to do them quietly? Given his limitations simply requesting he be quiet or does not work, and only pauses his action for about three seconds. I am a single mom and I lack social support. I have also explored every resource in the area, and there are not a ton. I am utilizing what is available, but I need more help.   54:57 He loves cords and shoelaces his gone through so many shoe laces I’ve had to buy so many because he pulls on them or puts them on his mouth I don’t know what to do he reaches every where I put them.   58:05 I've requested accommodations at the school without result. Without the diagnosis of deaf they will not accommodate.

What happened before all this was that he was upset because every Sunday we let him pick a place to go to, park, restaurant, mall, etc and he also gets to eat fries which is his favorite, we’ll the night before I checked his history on his tablet and found cartoons that he knows he can’t watch became these cartoons show very inappropriate behaviors like beating people up and cursing, I have blocked the page so many times but somehow he manages to find it, so I took his phone and table away, that was the beginning of everything the next morning which is Sunday he kept asking for his tablet I said you can’t use it yet, so he then started screaming, yelling and saying things like I want you to die mom, I’m leaving the house and never coming back and proceeded to get dressed and try to go out, I stopped him and he then started screaming more, I told him that we were not going out that Sunday because of his behavior and I say on the couch that’s when I heard him in the kitchen getting something and I told him to come to the living room, that’s when I saw he had the knife in his hands, he said he was sorry and he didn’t want to go to jail, I told him what he did was very bad, he proceeded to scream and cry. He has a psychiatrist he sees once a month, he’s on Sertraline 25mg 1x a day. I’m so devastated don’t know what to do. I’m also scared don’t know if he would attempt to hurt me, normally he’s always saying he loves me and wants hugs from me. Don’t know what to do please give me some advice. Normally he’s loving kid. Lately he hass been defiant, he curses and just want to do what he wants, but I never seen him do this before, I’m so devastated, don’t know what to think, say or do.   29:48 Helpful Tips for Unwanted Dietitian Visits I am going to a dietitian tomorrow and me and dietitians don't mix. I can’t stand when people try to change my eating habits. I’m going for medically controlled weight loss, and it’s needed by my whole medical team, but I am afraid of lashing out or if I get told I can’t eat my favorite things anymore I might have negative behavior. I know they are doing it for my own good, but I don't like being controlled. I don't wait to embarrass my mom and stepdad. please help me.   38:42 How do you feel about older children watching younger programs? We’re big believers that we must try to keep our child moving forward. As autistics tend to be immature as they grow up.   43:33 Do you have any advice on the Nemechek protocol?   45:24 What to do When the School Takes Away Your Child’s Biggest Reinforcer I’m working on this with the school right now, Quinton likes to use his hand drawings as reinforcements. He had one bad day, where he lost one of them, and he went a little extreme. That day they said no more pictures without giving him an alternate type of random reinforcement, they tried to say absolutely no pictures, it was a punishment, everyone in his circle disagreed with With a School said they wanted to do. I’ve been taking a lot of data; this happened a week ago last Friday.   46:47 I need tips on how to address a BCBA who is overworked. I have the most amazing RBT but the BCBA isn’t giving enough attention to my sons programming. She is assigning goals but not being specific, so it leaves the RBT to interpret how the goal should be run instead of her modeling. During supervision little to no feedback is given even when we are looking at her for direction. Help!

We have an urgent appointment with his psychiatrist on Tuesday but I wanted to hear from other parents and experts. He has abruptly begun exploding violently with siblings over such offenses as “she was whining!” (he spit in 5 y/o sisters food when my back was turned and justified it because she was whining.) I hear a thud and ‘ow’ from 3 year old in the other room. “He was going too slow on the stairs!” (He hit him into the wall.) I don’t know what to do. I am terrified that he will seriously injure a siblings. All I can think of is the next time this happens we go to the hospital because I don’t know what else to do. please help me 18:48 We are dealing with aggression. If my son is told “no” or can not do what he wants when he wants he tells us “you don’t love me anymore? I”m going to leave and not come back.” How do we curb this?

He’s also a terrible eater and never tells me when he’s hungry other than my assumption when he pushes me towards a chair and tries lifting my shirt. I don’t really know where to begin to wean him because I don’t know what he understands and I know he uses it for comfort. He wakes up several times a night to nurse and switch sides which means I’m awake too and getting angry that I’m not getting sleep. What do I do? Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

I am a parent of an autistic 5-year-old boy. I have joined many Facebook groups for parents of autistic kids, mainly for support and just to know I'm not going through this alone. There is one topic that seems to come up from time to time on these groups, and that is the term 'Einstein syndrome '. Many parents seem to think their kids fall into this category possibly because the prognosis is more favorable than that of autism. I would like to find out if 'Einstein syndrome ' is a recognized diagnosis and more importantly if Dr Granpeesheh believes it's a real condition.   39:14 All Ghouls Gala Invitation   43:33 Shapiro Legal Group Tylenol PSA   46:29 Bathroom Problems When he goes he hides in another room or a corner.

He is constantly attacking us and destroying my home. He responds to nothing. The only peace I have is when he sleeps. I’m terrified for the life of my eleven-month-old child.

My son only eats pizza, chicken nuggets, cheeseburgers, cheez-its, fruit, peanut butter and jelly and cheese. This is really it. We try and give him different foods we even hide it in foods. He just wont eat it. He has sensory issues and is starting a feeding therapist. The problem I have is that I am about ready to give up cooking. I waste so much food and my left overs go in trash. It is hard to make meals for just two people when only I eat. how can I get him to explore more foods? He also helps cook the meals in kitchen and he loves this a lot but when he has to eat it. He doesn't. HELP! 19:07 Persistent Diarrhea My 3 year old is nonspeaking, diagnosed Autism.  We have started ABA but he has constant diarrhea which interrupts therapy.  I hear you talking about diet but when I asked my BCBA about starting the gluten free diet, he told me there is no science behind it.  Now I am confused.  Should we try the diet?  Am I with a bad ABA provider? 26:31 Class Action Lawsuit Announcement Sponsored by Shapiro Legal Group 29:38 Has My Son's ABA Team Been Successful?

Partially potty trained. I look forward to hearing from you all. Thank you so much!!! 30:53 My 9 Year Old is Struggling to Make Friends My 9 yr old son will be starting 4th grade next week. We are still struggling making friends and asking to play properly. For example, we were at the shore last week and 2 boys were playing in the ocean. He wanted to play, and I told him go ask. He said "hi, this is my mom Johanny. Her phone number is ....) the kid looked so confused. I stepped in and said he wants to play with you. Didn't go well. I worry this is happening at school too. Can we get the school to support him during recess or lunch. I wish I was a fly on the wall to see what is happening, so I can figure out how to help. Suggestions? TIA and thanks for all that you both do 3 43:14 Clostridia left his brain completely unbalanced, is this reversable?

He is able to talk but his speech is not clear.   9:42 My problem is a 3.5 yr old minimally verbal for whom I cannot seem to find any kinds of reinforcers.  He runs from one thing to another, climbs on furniture, throws things around, breaks stuff,  doesn't stop even long enough to show interest in anything new for more than a few seconds, or favored previously.  I've tried snacks, sips of Cola (which he loves), new toys, he doesn't like to be touched so no tickles and much more. If I can get his attention to notice something, the minute I show interest, he abandons it.  It's as if he knows I'm trying to 'bribe' him.     I'm at my wits end so any advice?   20:33 My son is 16 on aripriprazole has been for 3 years. How long do we keep on medication.   23:58 My son w/ ASD will be 5 in Oct. He's progressed from single words at 3rd bday to talking in complete sentences- even complex (e.g., "and, if, so, because, but, while" etc. many times a day).   30:10 What about when ABA is just sitting at a desk for hours! What could I ask my ABA provider to do so he isn’t just sitting at a table?   32:40 My developmental pediatrician made referrals for multiple services ABA, music therapy, OT, Speech therapy and so forth but the problem we are facing is that the insurance has a waiting list and the we have to wait to provide services. I am almost positive that we may have to pay all his services out of pocket. Do you have any information where we don’t have to wait or pay out of pocket?   36:55 Potty Training: Teaching the Importance of Wiping My son whines and demands to wash his hands after a BM. Despite knowing what to do about wiping himself; He is adamant to not do it and just directly wash his hands after a BM. I am at a lost on how to make him understand that wiping himself is needed. Thank you in advance.   38:05 Question for both Dr. Doreen and Shannon: What are the common things in autism success stories? This would be a great motivation for us parents :)   48:13 I have found that my sons teachers as well as ABA provider don’t push my son because they think he can’t do certain things but in reality he can and he is bored with what they work on with him!   49:37 Our son was doing really good for a long while doing aba. He would match objects with generic pictures. This term he's all of a sudden completely gone. Matches colors as if he was color blind.   57:05 How do I get my 3 year old started in ABA?   58:21 Where can I find the link to the free RBT training? https://autismpartnershipfoundation.org/product/rbt/   https://www.autismnetwork.com/category/ask-dr-doreen/ https://www.tiktok.com/@askdrdoreen? https://www.instagram.com/askdrdoreen/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWSL-fAgvt3qo5yGwP4SUUQ   Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

Today, Dr. Doreen answers questions about Speech, ABA, Haircuts and much more! Tune in and check it out! Recorded Live 10am PT August 2nd, 2022 #AutismSpectrumDisorder #Autism #autismpodcast   3:49 Is increase in babbling after intensive ABA therapy is a good or bad thing? I want to update and ask you some questions. My son right now, 3 years 6 months old. Has been in ABA since 3 years old, first 20 hours per week and we increasing per month. Right now, he is in ABA therapy for 50 hours per week (in 3 different centers in Jakarta) and 2 hours per week sensory integration and occupational therapy. After very intensive ABA this 1 month, he increasing eye contact, tacting, labelling, manding, some intraverbals (answering questions). But, still very little spontaneous sentence or comment, and not yet conversational sentence. He is also increasing in babbling, random speech (not functional and also functional words). My questions, what can we expect from the therapy? Can very lot of ABA therapy cause overdose? Is increase in babbling (between functional words) after intensive ABA therapy is a good or bad things? How long does intensive ABA therapy will last? What outcome we can see in the upcoming months or years? Right now he still in minimal verbal stimming (can ABA therapy reduced or minimize/disappear the verbal stimming?) (My son can interact like hugging, kissing, say good bye, kiss bye, he is a sweet and cheerful, playful boy)   18:56 what is a good behavior token economy. we started a summer challenge photograph the alpha bet. hope it motivates our support staff your thoughts   20:05 How do we get our son to sit through a hair cut, he’s almost 8. It’s getting tougher every time.   32:21 Do you have any kids that have gone through the stem cell therapy option? what were their outcomes?   35:12 What is the best way to plan a birthday party for an autistic individual? I have heard horror stories of parents planning birthday parties and nobody shows up or rsvps. some have called police officers to show up. some have had to use social media campaigns. etc. what is the best way to plan a birthday party for an autistic individual?   43:18 My son can seem to get good ABA he will start and then the BI will quit or move it’s been so hard, Also they just sit him at a desk the whole time so my son feels like he is back at school.   50:25 Self Injurious Behavior (Banging Hands on Hard Surfaces) I wrote in a few weeks ago for Dr. Doreen regarding my son’s self injurious stimming. Shannon asked me to email her but I haven’t had the chance, we were in crisis mode. We’ve tried all types of replacements but nothing is working. He bangs his hand,wrist and knuckles and is causing swelling and bruises. It’s not attention seeking. He likes how it feels when he bangs, He does it when there are no demands. He does it when he’s alone, I’ve had to buy him a glove to protect his hand, wrist, knuckles. He’s happy when he bangs, He’s laughing and playing while he’s doing it, He does it in all settings and places.   https://www.autismnetwork.com/category/ask-dr-doreen/ https://www.tiktok.com/@askdrdoreen? https://www.instagram.com/askdrdoreen/   Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

Ask Dr. Doreen – Elopement – ABA Therapy – Obsessive Counting

Ask Dr. Doreen – Elopement – ABA Therapy – Obsessive Counting   Autism Expert and pioneer in the field of Autism, Psychologist and BCBA, Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh is answering viewer questions! Tune in and check it out! Tune in on Facebook, YouTube or Twitter Tuesdays at 10am PT to join us LIVE! Recorded Live 10am PT July 26th, 2022 #AutismSpectrumDisorder #Autism #autismpodcast   5:02 I am in desperate need of some advice or direction.  (Elopement) My 5-year-old eloped this morning and the rental office in which I live brought him back I assuming.  I was in the bathroom freshening up for the day when I came out to knocking on the door.  My son was in the living room, and we were waiting for the maintenance man to fix our AC that has been broken for 2.5 days now.  I opened the door thinking it was them to fix the AC, but it was not, it was the office lady telling me they found my boy down around the corner.    As of right now, my nerves are shot.  I have done everything I could think of to prevent any of this to happen.  I am horrified that CPS and the authorities were called and that I may have been reported.  IS there anything that could happen as to having my son removed?  I am literally sick to my stomach, throwing up and stomach cramps and headaches.  This nightmare I want it to be over but do not know what is going to happen at this moment.   UPDATE:  We bought a lock with a key lock.  MY nerves are still on edge this morning. Monday July 26th 2022 that I still in my mind think he still can get out.  I know he cannot get out, there is no way he can.   20:12 what way can we provide auditory stimulation to a child who is continuously clapping, stamping feet, and hitting object to teeth.   27:10 What can be happening when a child stares for moments many times during the day. Done an EEG and it came out normal and whenever i touched her she is able to react. But I would like to know what it could be.   28:46 Can you please break down how I should teach my child at home? We use play therapy in Canada, and I feel like play should be part of the therapy not all. Can a child pronunciation improve with time?   38:32 For a 20-month-old is it home therapy better than clinic-based therapy?   44:16 here is a personal question. my aunt and uncle were supposed to come in today but due to a mishap in her medication her and my uncle aren't able to come. me and this particular uncle have a very deep relationship and we haven't seen each other in a year and a half due to them moving to North Carolina. I'm handling it surprisingly well, but I'm afraid in the next few days i might have a huge meltdown when it hits in fully. help me and my family.   48:55 Obsessive Counting Plenty of others deserve time but I will put this thought/question out. A verbal-stim/script behavior pattern is occurring frequently now & impairing/preventing interaction. My 5yr ASD son has taken to CONSTANTLY without stopping 30-40min. COUNTING. 100s/1000s even is OK. but he jumps into sequences of millions, billions, trillions, Google and zillion. onto creating his own. Recently he went from prep-time for out-the-door to reach summer school constant counting going through breakfast, teeth, socks, shoes, into car, trip to summer school, arrive @ school, and without stopping as he went into open area (alone). This is impairing and will make learning in a classroom not possible; and not acceptable.   55:16 Obsessive Counting Cont'd A good thing? Why would it turn on a go for 30-40min? Whisper it silently in the playground alone .. and a home. / Hmm. interesting thoughts my son is super smart about math ^ measurement, time etc...   1:02:26 Coming up on the show this week!   https://www.autismnetwork.com/category/ask-dr-doreen/ https://www.tiktok.com/@askdrdoreen? https://www.instagram.com/askdrdoreen/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWSL-fAgvt3qo5yGwP4SUUQ   Shannon Penrod's book is out now!

Our host Shannon Penrod PONI (Parent of a Neurodiverse Individual) shares parenting hacks for bedtime rituals!  Tips are shared that parents can use at home and help get their child to sleep!   Bedtime Rituals   You do have the power to change the bedtime ritual – but only if you are well rested yourself.

When We provide him he toilet paper He just toss this in the toilet but does not clean himself. When we do hand over hand is the only time He clean himself. What to do to make him understand that is important to clean himself after a BM? Thank you in advance. 09:04 Responding from Another Room My son, 13, is doing all kinds of new things! He used to not answer us if he was in another room. Recently he has been answering us from another room but not extremely loud enough for us to hear him. I want to ask his new BCBA to write a goal for this. Any thoughts and ideas on this? 11:32 How can I help get Rid of a Script? How can i help get rid of a script my so. picked up . its a violent phrase? it was something he heard from a show clip. he says it randomly. 16:14 My son who is 5 years old and he keeps talking about poop. My son who is 5 years old and he keeps talking about poop. We ignore it and it goes away but right back at it. 19:46 here is a question for both of you. I’m volunteering at mu churches VBS and have to wear A inflatable koala suit. the problem is, is that children freak me out. what can I do to do good with this opportunity? 24:29 How do we teach parents how to spot “bad” ABA and as BCBAs, get more “good/great” ABA out in the world? 31:31 Hi Shannon and Dr. Doreen. Sometimes I find myself in conflict between putting too much pressure on my son, with his intervention demands, and just "accepting him the way he is". Is there a balance? 40:27 Hi there, my Son is 20 years old and when he gets frustrated ( I think it’s that) he starts pounding his chest, and I can’t seem to redirect him at that moment cause he’s upset obviously, how can I help him to get away from this type of behavior, thank you so much. 42:55 Potty Training hi Shannon and Dr. Doreen.. My son always jumps and run here and there before going for potty. I tried so much to make him sit on the toilet seat and go for potty. can you suggest anything? 43:44 There was a post this morning about a SLP who told a mom that ABA was like a “cult”. Glass walls, no parents aloud. I’ve had a BCBA that told me there was no data behind diet. 45:12 My question is for Dr Doreen. I recently hired ABA Consultant and instead of assessing my daughter he was flirting with the teachers. After 2hrs of observations he charged me 500pounds& send me 1 page. I live in London and I am really disappointed with the services or lack of service. He also sent me email insisting that he wants to train my daughter's teachers. I informed him I want you to train me He wants to train the teachers instead. Many thanks. 47:20 I have dyspraxia, ADHD and Asperger’s traits . Have you heard of this combination? When is the chat live? 50:02 I have a 3 yr that has ADHD and autism he gets really violent he start hitting me throwing things at me kicking things and screaming when tell him no or if he’s doing something that can hurt him and I say to get down because he going to get hurt he gets out of control how do help him not get to that level. 53:55 My son is 7 and is doing great but I’m just overwhelmed and feel defeated at times. This is for the long haul and I’m tired. I love my son but I’m struggling with the forever of it all! Shannon Penrod's book is out now!
