Hello Doctor! My daughter is 7 years old. She was in a special school and was also taking speech therapy prior to lockdown . Of late I have noticed regression in her Language skills. Since she is not able to communicate herself well, she gets irritated quickly and starts getting agitated. Please suggest me how to control her and improve her behaviour.

My child Nathan has been recently diagnosed with Moderate Autism. He is 5 years old. He is very restless, and gets frustrated when his demands are not met with. Since he has not been able to meet his friends and teachers he is becoming all the more short tempered. He would hit me or his younger sibling if I deny his demands. Also he doesn't like going to crowded places. Could you please suggest me some tips to handle him.

My 2 year and 9 months old would make weird noises, he would continue staring blankly on the roof or in one direction, he speaks just 2-3 meaningful words, he is particular about what food he eats and doens't like textured food such as daliya, khichri, or dishes made with suji . He would continue playing with his cars for hours and doens't like anyone touching those. Please guide me are these red flags for autism or this is normal behaviour for his age. I am a worried mother, please guide me what to do if these are signs of abnormal behaviour.

My child is 6 years old and has severe autism. He is still not toilet trained. He mostly poops in his pants. He needs help in self care like bathing, dressing up, eating food , as well as being put to bed. I am a working mother and i live in a joint family. Earlier he used to go to a center for children with special needs but due to COVID , it has been closed. My In-laws everyday complain about not being able to manage him. We also have a full time household help but she is too reluctant to cope up with him. Please suggest me how to take care of in the absence of support services.

Sheena my 4 year old is an autistic child. Her language development is not appropriate for her age . During the lockdown I have noticed further decline in her physical as well mental health. She remains disturbed and quiet. She prefers to be in her own room and doens't like playing with agemates. I have not been able to bring structure in her routine due to being a single working parent. I leave her with my mother in my absence. But I feel I am not able to connect with her. How can I strengthen my relationship with her? Also please guide me with some handy tips to improve her mental health so that she plays with other children of her age and doesn't remain aloof.
