I would like to share some positive things we have experienced in getting over mild or moderate autism in our son....we have seen improvement in the course of last 1 and half years, my son now around 5 yrs. of course u need to consult your Dr. For guidance with various treatments, supplements and therapies.
1. Biomedical intervention or supplements: Multivitamins, multi mineral supplements, especially Magnesium-Vitamin B6, B vitamins, carnosine, carnitine and Co-q 10. The last three were given by Dr. After doing certain tests.. Also omega- 3 fatty acids and probiotics.
2. OT, special education and speech therapy
3. Integration in school where he has been in normal and special class for half- half time
3. Socialization in contrast to the isolated life we had in the States
4. Unknown but useful factors in India...
Ofcourse the journey is challenging however now we have much more hopes and trust that he will be someone one day....

Dr. Datar checked for metabolic disorders, and to correct those, he gave the above 3 supplements, which I report to be very useful..

I didn't write the Drs name right away as I am not in any way advertising anyone... I would expect that everyone is polite here in asking though..

Please let us know the improvements.
1# Is he verbal now ?
2# How is his eye contact or socialization ?
etc etc...



monarahul 2014-12-15 12:51:06


Yes, he is verbal now. Earlier till 6 months ago he was talking in words, that too inconsistently. But now he uses 3, 4, 5 word sentences. Occasionally he says 3, 4 sent in one go. Recites nursery rhymes. Socialization and eye contact has improved.

Hi, Are you from Pune too. You mentioned Integration in school where your child has been in normal and special class for half- half time. Can you guide me as to which school is he in in Pune and your personal experience with that particular school. Also my son is 3 years old and goes to a nearby nursery, but he is on his own most of the time and does not participate in class and I am confused as to what to do next school wise.

Hi Monarahul,

Kudos to your son and whole family to reach this milestone. As parents, we all know how you feel awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Would you please elaborate on (dosage, brand, when were you giving those - like before/after food or morning/bedtime and if you have addl info) multivitamins, mineral supplements, B vitamins, coq10 and especially on aminoacids (carnosine, carnitine). Everyone follows biomed some or other way, but when and how we give the supplements also considerable. That is why I ask you, to understand whether we are in same pace. (pls don’t worry, none of the parents going to follow the biomed regime without doctor’s recommendation). Which all tests does the doctor asked for finding the deficiencies and so he prescribed these aminoacids out of a bunch (metabolic disorders test ??), can you specify the name of the tests.  It will be helpful for us to aware and propose with our doctor if needed.

It would be great help for parents who are away from India or having kids of same age and symptoms.

Bujju0611 2014-12-16 21:21:00


Hi Mona,

I may not consult the same doctor as we are not in Pune. I sent you a message from parentree, pls check. Thanks.
