Hi All! I have been silently going through various posts eversince July when my then 5yr old son was diagnosed under ASD. I don't want to discuss Biomed approach as there have lots of discussion about it. At somewhat fundamental level,I believe that some of the common thread which I find our kids are suffering from, in various degrees and combination are :-â€¢ joint attention impairmentâ€¢ a disorganised mind where information needs be integrated/lack of integrationâ€¢ lack of coordination,be it physical,mental or bothâ€¢ lack of impulse controlâ€¢ limited attention spanâ€¢ communication deficitâ€¢ social interaction deficitâ€¢ lack/poor initiation of activities/play/communicationâ€¢ cognitive developmentâ€¢ lack of imaginationThese are some illustrations only.What are the best practices to cope with them,the therapies which could make a perceptible differences to them.Are there any evidence based therapies,as practiced in leading centers of west which are available/used here. The efficacy and evaluation of such practices in parental experience. I would be grateful if members of parentree share their views and experiences!
