Hi. My son is 3.5 years old and we also took him to his dr and they told us that he has ASD. His all a to z habits is same like your son. We are thinking to take him for ABA and speech therapy, his occupational therapy is going on. Buts his development is slow. I am curious that is your son started to talk and is he behaving as like normal kid? Does ABA therapy work on such kids? And how much we have to spend for every month therapy? Plz guide us as a parent you can understand our situation. Ÿ™ Thank you in advance.

Right now we are in houston USA, can you guide me that does ABA Therapy work or not. My son is 3.5 years old. He laugh alone he like to play alone. He doesn't want to see other people rather than his mom dad. He hide his face with his palm. He hardly use any word to Express his feelings. He doesn't respond his name he has poor eye contact, he know how to tackle puzzle games he like to jump, he like to play games in my ph ok ne, he like to watch tv cartoon. He doesn't like to eat by his hand he want me to feed him. We put him in the school for PPCD program ( preschool program for children with disabilities) But we are not getting good results. Now we put him to the occupational therapy and now planning to put him in ABA therapy. But my insurance is not ready to pay for him we have to pay 80% amount that is too much per month. So is it worth to be pay that much.. or can o go to india and can find good therapy center? Plz guide us. Thank you in advance

Hi Dan23 Would you mind have a call with me. I am worried about my daughter. Please share your contact number

dan23 2019-09-13 21:55:31


Hi DeepankPooja, my son is now 5.5 years old and he has started talking but still not on பார with his peers with normal development. But definitely he is improving, we all must understand that this is a very slow process for improvements and we must have patience. My son is still undergoing ABA and has started going to Public School. We are hoping he would get along fine in the public school.

I am Krishna from Virugambakkam, Chennai. My Son is 2.5 years now and showing mild ASD traits like poor eye contact and poor name call response.
We went to Apollo for Canada visa medical test and there the Pediatrician noticed and informed us. 

More about my Son,
Age: 2.5 years (30 months)

(1) Good memory. Even at this age, he is telling numbers 1-100. When playing swing, he counts himself. When he plays with toys also, he counts correctly and can read from book as well.
    Can say alphabets A to Z. Even when i write in chalk in any random order also, he is identifying and telling correctly.
    Identifying and telling all the colors correctly. Identifying animals correctly and also plays the imitation game with me (Dog says bow, Cat saws meow etc. for 12-15 animals correctly)
    Identifying and telling shapes correctly.
    Identifying many fruits/vegetables/food items correctly (like apple, orange, banana, onion, egg, rice, sugar etc.)
    Identifying and telling few of his toys as well like stacks, xylophone, car, bus, brush, hat etc.
    Sings 10-15 rhymes.    Can say days (Sunday to Saturday)
    Remembers the routes correctly.

(2) Can ask for few of his needs verbally like need water, need ball, need stacks, go outside. He is trying to engage in a conversation but not finding words.

(3) Very good observation and imitation skills. He observed all household chores like cooking, washing, sweeping etc. and imitates that.
    He even observed the sewing machine needle movement and correctly pointing and pulling the needle to show how it moves.

(4) Loves to play with us. Plays hide and seek, imitation games with us in home and while reading books (like alphabets, numbers, animals, colours) or playing games, the eye contact and
    involvement is great.

(5) Took him outside to many places like temples, shopping malls and he is very normal. No issues with crowd, loud noise, loud music, bright/dull light etc.

(6) Loves to go to park. When he sees other kids, he observes them and follow what they are doing.

(7) No gross motor or fine motor issues.

Areas of concern:
(1) Poor name call response. When he is not doing anything, he responds to his name call. When he is occupied with something, even when i call from 1 feet, he wont look up.
(2) Poor eye contact. His eye contact with people at home is good. When we go outside, he is not looking into the eyes of the strangers or other kids.
(3) Temper tantrums. When he is not finding words to communicate, he will try to pull our hands to lead us but when he decline, he will get frustrated and cry. Sometimes will lye on the floor and cry
(4) Not potty trained yet
(5) He eats only when we play videos in youtube

I saw your post which is 5 years old and felt like i am in same situation now.
Can you please guide me on what you did to overcome the situation?Please let me know your number and i can call you as well.

Did anyone of you heard of Jewel Autism Center, Kottayam, Kerala? Are they good?
