Hi parents. Has any one recovered or seen severe autistic child becoming independent and handling his daily chores himself. If yes plz share your experience and successful recovery tips. I m struggling for basic issues like no attention no eye contact not following simple commands totally non verbal having tantrums from more than one year. I have not started gfcf diet cani give it myself.

Hi rrak, 

do not feel desperate. Things will definitely  improve. Try to get help from some organisation or institutions that could guide to plan activities for him. Try to get yourself trained for his needs. 

 Look for his sensory needs, games planned according to his sensory need will attract him, you may consult a occupational therapist for it. Even if you closely observe him, you can interpret his sensory likes that excite him or sensory sound or light or tough that he doesn't like. There are previous post in parentree about sensory games. 
Join him in whatever he does is if he is jumping, jump with him, if he is flapping his hand flap your, follow him in everything,  he might begin to look at you or respond.
No eye contact does not mean he is not listening

Hello  rrak,
Why won't the child be independent ?????? have confidence in urself and in ur child. Initially it will be difficult but not impossible. Don't be in a rush lookout for a DAN Dr starting the diet is imp but with that u have to give supplements too. Give ur child balanced gfcf diet . Along with the diet start ST and OT too. I am sure within a week u'll see some positive changes in ur child.  All the best ...
