    Anyone has a autistic child?

    Dear all, I'm new here. Just to share my experience. We noticed our boy was different at 2 years old. Not talking, poor motor skills and lack of social interaction. We started OT and followed by intensive ABA at 2.5 yrs old. At 3.5 years, my boy was diagnosed as autistic. The acceptance stage...

    Hi Kath, There ain't many childcare centres that specialised in ASD kids. The closest I've heard of are the Integrated Child Care programme. Even then I heard the waiting list is very long. Are you looking for a half day or full day childcare? My son is currently in half day special...

    Autism in Toddler

    hi wongsl, what makes you suspect that your son is autistic? My son is also turning 3 next month. We brought him to see the PD before he turned 2. Then the PD recommended OT and Speech therapy. He was too young to be diagnosed yet. We went for private OT and Speech for a couple of months...

    hi Chong, Yes. I do feel lonely at times too. As friends around me talk about sending the kids to playgroups, nursery, enrichment classes etc, I've to take him out of mainstream for now to focus on ABA therapy. We just started on GFCF diet and bio-medication about 3 weeks ago. Can't see the...

    Thks Kay Kay. Its rather far from where I stay. Good for you that you found a place for your son and they can focus on the area that requires improvement. My son is 2.5 years old. Thinking of where to place him next year.

    Hi Ying Ying, I was in the same situation as you. I wanted him to be in the mainstream so badly. In the end, we got to make some sacrifices. I did not see my son benefiting from the childcare as he is not interacting with the other kids at all. So I decided to go full time on ABA for time...
