Question?: Asperger Syndrome Test

Carol asks…

why do some people have mental problems while others dont?

i have aspergers syndrome, crowd anxiety, depression. my friend has ADHD. my aunt has depression.
why do some people have mental problems while others dont?

admin answers:

I am not saying there are no mental problems but one should ask why USA seem to be the most depressed country in the world? …while there is no medical objective test to prove someone has any of the psychiatry diagnoses.

This 2 minutes long video explains the difference between diagnosis in real medicine backed up by science and psychiatry diagnosis like ADHD backed up by personal opinions.

Psychiatry – NO SCIENCE-NO CURES (4:54min)
Can psychiatrists help you with antidepressants? Are there any cures in psychiatry today? How many people have been cured? What are your chances?
Check it for yourself – hear it from interviewed psychiatrists.


The Marketing of Madness:
Are We All Insane?

The definitive documentary on psychotropic drugging—this is the story of the high-income partnership between drug companies and psychiatry which has created an $80 billion profit from the peddling of psychotropic drugs to an unsuspecting public.

But appearances are deceiving.

How valid are psychiatrist’s diagnoses—and how safe are their drugs?

Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this three-part documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal a dangerous and often deadly sales campaign.

Question?: Rett Syndrome Research

Thomas asks…

rett syndrome – pleaes help!!!!!!!!?

Hi all> I asked this question yesterdaybut got very few responses – Most that did respond gave me generic websites with a laundry list of symtopms that I am already aware of
Im doing some research on the genetic disorder Rett Syndrome (RS) & I am looking for some first hand accounts of the early stages
Ive frequented IRSF & MANY other rett syndrome pages but I am really looking for some information from people who have dealt with it on a hands on basis>
My biggest area of interest/curiosity is about the first “signs”

what were your first clues that something wasnt right
was it drawn out or did it just seem to happen overnight

admin answers:

I’m sorry that you haven’t found much help here- why not find an internet forum for Rett Syndrome? I’m sure you’d get a lot more informative answers. Perhaps join CafeMom and find a Rett Syndrome group. Or poll some people on the IRSF website?

You’re at a generic internet forum at the moment, it might be tough to come across people who have experienced a very specific illness. Try going to a more specific internet forum for more information.

Question?: Adhd Symptoms

Laura asks…

Any vitamins that will help a hyper child?

My 5 year old is taking gummy omegalicious omega 3 formula.It helps with brain,memory and mood.
I have noticed a difference and she has only been taking it for a month now.
Do you know of any other vitamin that helps with hyperness.
I am not trying to medicate my child.I have heard that there are some vitamins out that help with ADHD symptoms.Do you know of any?Thanks.

admin answers:

I would give her a vitamin D supplement (along with her multivitamin). A lot of people have said that their ADHD symptoms improve dramatically from it.
There are studies being done now that show most of us are deficient in vitamin D since it’s absorbed through our skin by being in the sun (without sunblock) and most of us are indoors almost all day. You can get vitamin D in food to but, only a fraction of what is made in our skin.

Question?: What Is Autism Yahoo

Jenny asks…

Does anyone have an example of a wheat & dairy free diet suitable for a child with autism?

I have a 13 year old daughter with autism, she’s a wonderful child, & has come a really long way. I have been reading that wheat & dairy free diets seem to free their bodies of yeast which have been said to “fog” their brain, & prevent them from expressing themselves more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your time.

admin answers:

I have found two websites, one is Autism Web, which probably has a lot of good information, as well as help with the diet you are curious about.

You can find a world of information on the internet by doing a Yahoo search for whatever you are looking for. I did a search for WHEAT AND DAIRY FREE DIET to come up with these links for you. There is also a lot of information about autism on the internet, as well.. Just do a search.

I sure hope things work out and glad your daughter has come such a long way. Hugs

Question?: Autistic Disorder

Robert asks…

Which state has the best care for autism?

I have 2 boys, ages 2 & 3, both diagnosed with autistic disorder, and I am not satisfied with the options for learning environments for them in Oklahoma. Anyone know where the very best care, schooling, and government funding is for this growing problem?

admin answers:

Honest to god, Rochester, NY is a great city to have a child or children with special needs. We have many, many resources throughout the entire community.

BOCES is a school district that has a few different schools in this area. Students with special needs can go there, it is a wonderful place. BOCES also has programs with public schools. Some students go to BOCES half of the day and the other half are in the public schools. They have a wonderful program that works for your child. They are very personal and care about your goals as parents. You will be fully informed and part of every decision that goes into your child’s education. It is wonderful!

Also, we have a great Advocacy Center. Check out their website:http://www.advocacycenter.com/. There are so many programs and resources there to educate the parents on what they can do to help make their child’s life a little easier, what options there are educationally, programs, support groups, etc.

NY in general is known for it’s resources and care for children with special needs. I would recommend checking out the following links under the resources. Even give the Advocacy Center or BOCES a phone call with any questions you might have. Everyone is very welcoming and ready to help in any way they can.

Good luck! 🙂

Question?: Rett Syndrome Pictures

Thomas asks…


I am currently attending Trident Technical College with intentions to transfer to College of Charleston, a 4 year college. I am currently taking some general classes, and will be majoring in Early Childhood Development & Education in Special Education… and taking some Associates of Arts classes. I am curious:
What is the main objectives of a special education teacher, and how does the position differ from a “regular” classroom teacher?…. younger elementary age.

If you can, briefly sum up the special educations teacher position. I am a new college student (first year) and am 100% passionate about teaching, and children. I currently am an hourly “teacher”/childcare provider at a preschool daycare (ages 9 months-16 months, approximately.) I am not sure if I will enjoy the special kids as much as the regular classes, and am curious at how I would handle it.. I am concerned about the level of patience and tolerance I will need, and if I will be lacking in that area!!! Sounds shallow, but it is a valid concern all the same. Of course I do realize that I have plenty of time to decide and assist in classes… but I’d love to hear about others experiences, knowledge, and input…

Do special ed teachers usually get paid more than regular ed teachers?

Thanks in advance for your responses!

admin answers:

All right. Well, my mother currently works in a special ed classroom as an aide. She works with the developmentally delayed preschoolers. I go visit the kids sometimes, and she tells me lots about them. Most of them are sweet kids. She has a total of i think 8 in the room, but some keep coming from other classes to get help from them because regular teachers don’t seem to want to give them a chance. Most of the kids just have developmental problems. They have to test into the class, meaning they have to meet with a lady at the school (cant remember what they call her) and perform a series of tasks to show that they are developed well enough physically to enter the class but that they still need some extra help learning. The object of this special ed program is to help prepare the children for kindergarten. Most of them are a little slow. One little boy has a bad problem with speech, one of them has muscular dystrophy and is on medicine that makes his little face swell, and one little girl has a problem with her eyes where she can barely see and has to wear bifocals. Some of the kids are on medicine and are very hyper. One little boy has something wrong with his nerves and is terribly hyper and has siezures and slow speech. Another little girl has Rett’s syndrome. Dont ask me how she tested into the class, she is unteachable and cant talk, all she does is sits around, screams,and poops. Rumor has it she was put in there to make the teacher in charge of the class mad. The teacher and aides work with the students on their alphabet, and they begin to teach them how to spell, especially their names. They might make a poster with pictures of something that starts with the letter they are learning on it, do a coloring sheet, practice how to hold a pencil, or watch a little kids movie or dora the explorer or something. The adults in the room are responsible for feeding the kids lunch and breakfast, and taking them to the bathroom. They all sit at a little table together to eat, and they line up single file and take turns in the bathroom. If the child does not know how to button their pants or wipe themselves, the teachers have to help them. Also the students have music where they sing songs and do little dances to them. This class is considered pre k, but there are some kindergarteners in there too. Most of the kids are four or five, i think there is one three year old and thats the girl who is unteachable.
Being a special ed teacher differs from a regular teacher because the students need more one on one attention. And as far as patience goes, yes, its good to have it, and lots of it! The kids my mom works with dont respond well to being yelled at, but my mom talks sweet to them, so they love her and do anything for her. There is both a certified teacher and an aide in the classroom, the aide does not need to have a degree.
As far as pay goes, from what my mom has told me about the certified teacher in the classroom, she makes more money than the other special ed teachers because she has a masters degree in special education and has been teacher for many many years. I think special ed pay is like regular teachers pay, better depending on your degree and years of expertise. This is just what it is like at my mother’s school, i dont know how it is at other places. Good luck if this is what you decide to do!

Question?: Autism Signs In Adults

Mark asks…

What are the signs of a autistic (spelling is probably wrong sorry.) child?

What are some signs that your child might be autistic? Is there any clear signs or is only something a doctor can see?

admin answers:

I work with children and adults that have autism. Here are some signs that you should look for. If you take your child to a specialist they will look for the same thing. These are based off the guidelines of the DSM

. Does your child enjoy being swung, bounced on your knee, etc.?
____ 2. Does your child take an interest in other children?
____ 3. Does your child like climbing on things, such as up/on chairs?
____ 4. Does your child enjoy playing peek-a-boo / hide & seek?
____ *5. Pretend Play (PP): Does your child ever pretend, for example, to make a cup of tea using a toy cup and teapot, or pretend other things (pouring juice)?
____ 6. Does your child ever use his or her index finger to point, to ask for something?
____ *7. Protodeclarative Pointing (PDP): Does your child ever use his or her index finger to point, to indicate interest in something?
____ 8. Can your child play properly with small toys (e.g. Cars or blocks) without just mouthing, fiddling, or dropping them?
____ 9. Does your child ever bring objects over to you (parent), to show you something?

When you take your child to get checked out, at the appointment they will look specifically for these things:

Eye Contact: During the appointment, has the child made eye contact with you?
____ *ii. Gaze monitoring (GM): Get the child’s attention, then point across the room at an interesting object and say, “Oh Look! There’s a (name of a toy)!” Watch the child’s face. Does the child look across to see what you are pointing at? (To record a YES, make sure the child does not just look at your hand, but at the object you are pointing at).
____ *iii. Pretend Play (PP): Get the child’s attention, then give the child a miniature toy cup and teapot and say, “Can you make a cup of tea?” Does the child pretend to pour out tea and drink it? (If you can elicit an example of pretending in some other game, score a YES on this item).
____ *iv. Protodeclarative Pointing (PDP): Say to the child, “Where’s the light?” or “Show me the light.” Does the child point with their index finger at the light? (Repeat this with, “Where’s the bear?” or some other unreachable object if the child does not understand the word light. To record a YES on this item, the child must have looked up at your face around the time of pointing).
____ v. Block Tower: Can the child build a tower of blocks? (If so how many?)

Everyone with autism is different so your child may not display the “typical symtons of autism”. This is why is it important to not only observe your child in its environment, but also set up situations and take note on how ur child responds or doesnt respond to the problem.
I really hope this helps. Autism can be a great thing as long as you know what tools work best for your child.

Question?: Rett Syndrome Awareness Month

Donald asks…

If they are gong to make vaccines mandatory dont you think?

Okay I understand why (even if I may not agree) they may make some vaccines mandatory BUT if they are going to do this why wouldn’t they ALSO make blood/allergy testing & mitochondrial testing mandatory too!!!

Too many times I’ve read stories about kids allergic to ingredients in vaccines , i.e. eggs, msg, gluten, etc. &/or someone had a a prior mitochondrial defect that the vaccine just “pushed in over the edge” & now said child is autistic, regressing,

Instead of playing russian roulette with our kids why not mandate these relatively routine tests before giving these kids all the same vaccine as if all these kids are made the same exact way. Everyone is different & they should realize that!!!!

Now Im sure someone will say the cost of this doesn’t pay, but with the statistics saying 1 in 150 kids is autistic do you know how much it costs to pay for disabled kids for the rest of their life!?!?!?! & besides that how can you put a price on a a humans life like that!?!?!

I never said vaccines DID cause Autism (even if i personally belive maybe there mihgt be a link !) I never said that anywhere in this question

MY QUESTION WAS wouldn’t you want to take that extra step/testing just on the off chance that maybe just maybe all these vaccines have something to do with rising autism rates & by doing prior testing at least you will have known in your heart that you did all you could to keep your child safe rather then just be lead blindly by money making pharmacuticals pushing this years magical cure?
Also I just read a VERY sad article about a 5 year old girl from NJ who died from the flu vaccine & that NJ is making it mandatory to get this ages 5-18yrs once a year. Now Im not saying the vaccine itself is what caused this -chances are there was some underlying problem already existing (the article did not give further details) but that is exactly why I am asking this question. Shouldn’t they test for underlying potential problems & then asses the situation from there whether or not administering the vaccine has more harmful or good outcome

admin answers:

I agree they should test for those things but not all will show up.

I believe in a parents right to do “what they think is best” for their child and do not think the government should mandate vaccinations at all.

Dr. Diagnonsense: The writer did not say it was proven but rather opened a discussion on the subject. Much has been written on this subject and the effects of vaccinations on children (most of whom could be found by the testing indicated.)

what were your first clues that something wasnt right

admin answers:

I worked with a child that had RS and her parents told me she was originally diagnosed with CP. It was very difficult to tell the difference between the two.So it was drawn out. The little girl was 2 1/2 before she was properly diagnosed. One main difference between CP & RS is that with CP when you learn something you keep the knowelege and remember things, with RS you can learn it and loose it. This little girl I worked with could not walk or talk but she could feed herself with her hands and crawl a little. By the time she turned 5 she had lost everthing she had gained. She could no longer swallow her food feed herself or crawl. Her Dr had to put a G button in to do tubal feedings and then she was put in a kid cart because she couldnt get around on her own. I hope I helped but this is the only knowlege I have of RS….
