Hello Ma'am ! My son is 7 years old. He is on the spectrum. Last two years have been really tough on us as we really didn't know how to keep him occupied as I am a working mother and his OT classes also got discontinued for a long time. Now that he was settling down a bit, schools are reopening from tomorrow and I am very much concerned whether he will be able to adjust again. He takes a longer time to adjust to any change . Kindly suggest me how can I help him settle bacck sooner in school. Thanks Doctor🙏🏻

Hello Doctor! I have a question to ask. My girl was diagnosed with moderate Autism 5 months back .She is 3. 9 years old. Should we get her enrolled in a normal school or a special school? She doens't involve herself in conversations, out of 10 times only 3-4 times she makes an eye contact and loves to play alone. She gets really irritated when things are not according to her. Very choosy in eating and is toilet trained. Please guide me with your valuable suggestions.

Hello Ma'am !My son is 8 years old. Prior to the lockdown he was taking speech therapy as well as sensory integration therapy from therapists. During the lockdown he was shifted to online classes and we didnt see its benefit so we got it discontinued. He was really missing his sessions and contact with the therapists so we got to make him occasionally talk to them online. Recently we again continued with the same team. But now I see his progress is slow and he hasn't been learning much,also he seems to be disinterested in the sessions. Should we continue the therapy post school hours or reduce it or just stop it all together? Will it again have an adverse impact on him? I am very much confused. Please help me with your expert advise.

Ma'am my son is 2 years old. He doens't make an eye contact, he is not able to communicate at all, he is not toilet trained, he keeps playing with his cars all day. Cries a lot when we are not able to understand what he wants to communicate,keeps moving his legs and he keeps looking at the fan. Are these signs of any underlying issue as my cousins are telling me to get him screened for Autism. Which all tests are done for screening? Do they do brain MRI as well? I have no idea about this, please help me🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
