I have a son aged 3.10 yrs now going to nursery class in a playschool and diagnosed at the age of 2.3yrs to be having a risk of autism(language disorder). He is also going for OT and ABA therapies. In school they complaint about his behaviour issues like pushing children, not sitting at one place. So we had to introduce shadow. Now he is only for one hour in school with shadow. His learning is good regarding alphabets, phonic sounds, numbers, counting, writing. Is it advisable to continue in the school with shadow or look for special school? And also how is vydehi school in white field, Bangalore?
Diagnosis of ASD at the age of 2.3 sends shivers down my spine. It the age of many developmental features which mimic ASD, like object fragmentation, anxiety bouts, lack of boundaries, lack of gestalt, poor/no speech. It is very easy to get confused with ASD. My two cents:
1. I have seen many such children who seem to have many symptoms of ASD but are not autistic, and grow up all fine.
2. Too much information on internet leads to self-diagnosis in parents, leading to panic, leading to unnecessary evaluations and therapies.
3. Half-baked information in teachers often causes a lot of wrong diagnosis at play- school level.
Has the doctor who diagnosed ASD given you inputs regarding rest, schedule, behavior or diet ? I personally don't believe in OT and ABA in kids unless a clinical evaluation is done based on significantly strong symptoms. A slow or delayed development can be well handled at home through cognitive stimulation program. Please email me the assessment reports first (firstname.lastname@example.org). I would like to see it before giving any feedback.
