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....
You have written Dr. and not given doctor's name. Pl.. tell the name, qualification and contact details so that we can also consult and get benefited.
it is Dr. Chaitanya Datar, SMGTEF, near Jangli Maharaj mandir, Pune. they have a website so pl get the details from the site...
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..
I m curious to know the details of positive changes that occurred in ur child' life..
Please let us know the improvements.
1# Is he verbal now ?
2# How is his eye contact or socialization ?
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.
Good knw abut importantment in ur son. Do u following gfcf diet. My son is 2.10 yrs old. He is also speak in words bt whn it comes in sentence he cant. Pls guide us hw u encourage to spk in sentence.
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 ! Yes he was on gfcf diet for 1.5 yr. Now he eats yoghurt...
Kid zee karve nagar branch. They have a special batch there.. Since my son was able to speak a lil bit, we requested this integration. Thanks to the principal...
why you followed gluten free diet ?was he diagnosed with celiac ?
what kind of metabolical disorders you are talking about ? he wasn't able to put on weight or what ?
pls throw some light as I know someone who might get help from this info
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 donâ€™t worry, none of the
parents going to follow the biomed regime without doctorâ€™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.
Please send me your email ids so I can reply you privately, and answer each qs. Houssain, bujjo611, pl send me your emails.
Regarding gfcf, Vans 1234, there is a whole discussion on the internet which you can read, why it benefits autistic children. Of course its a choice.. So In cannot answer it here..
I have sent u friend request, could u pls accept so tht I will send my mailid. Or u can mail me in the parentree mailbox itself once u accept.Thanks.
done.. now u have to accept the request..
As I have mentioned above we consulted Dr. Datar who did some metabolic panel tests and based on those results gave the supplements. if u r in Pune u can visit him..We found major change after the supplements. we have also stopped giving him sugar and trying to follow gfcf..send me a message as I am new to parentrre. if needed I cna give u my phone no.
I may not consult the same doctor as we are not in Pune. I sent you a message from parentree, pls check. Thanks.
There was some discussion abt list of DAN Drs in India, so Usha/priya please find out who is there in Bangalore or nearby area.
Nice to know that Mona Rahul
Hope your son is doing well. Your story is very inspiring. We plan to consult Dr Chaitanya Datar. Before that wanted to check with you and take your opinion. Can you please share your email id or phone number.
Thanks & Regards,
