Question?: Autistic Angry Outbursts

Robert asks…

Parents of Older Autistic Children w/ Aggression?

I have been using Safe Crisis Management holds for my son’s aggressive “outbursts” since he was diagnosed (PDDNOS). I have been having some problems lately due to the fact he’s getting bigger and is very flexible.

Earlier today Austins in-home therapist pushed him a bit to far and he lost it. Once I got him in the hold he began to wiggle and fight. He threw his head back and managed to bust my lip a bit and when I tried to steady his head he turned and bit my arm leaving a decent little bruise.

I was calm through it all, and finally managed to get him calmed down. But once he went back to his therapist and my husband got home, I locked myself in the bathroom and seriously considered pulling my hair out LOL. I asked his therapist for advice, but he was no help at all.

Did you have this problem when your child got older? If they were able to overpower the holds, what did you do to keep them from harming themselves/others?
No judging my son, especially if you have no experience with children on the spectrum. He is the sweetest kid on the planet 90% of the time. He just has trouble expressing his “bad moods”.
Erin: I hope it works out with your son. I’ve been through the pre-diagnosis phase, it’s rough. Austin is 8 now, and generally his episodes will send him “after people”. He won’t really sit still through it.

admin answers:

Well, my son is 2 1/2 years old, and not yet been diagnosed with autism, but we believe he has it. He has the same outbursts that you describe your son to have. I have tried holds as well, but all it does is hurt us both. I really don’t have that great of an answer for you, but I do know that you need to keep yourself safe as well as your son. My son will usually stop when he wants to, and I’ve found that the holds just made him angrier. What I do may sound terrible, but it’s the best way I’ve found so far. I have a big, soft chair that I set him in and just let him go. He can’t really hurt himself on this chair, it’s very soft and it’s over-sized. Maybe try something like that, just let the outburst run its course, while making sure he stays safe and doesn’t hurt himself. To me, it’s better than you getting a busted nose or something, and then not being able to help him through is problem because you have something you need to tend to on yourself.

Good luck, if you find any better advice, let me know.

Edit: I am really sorry to hear that. Nick’s a little bit the same way, until I sit him down and let him go at it in his chair. He’ll come hit and kick and bite me, hit his little brother, and the works. Plus, he beats himself up something fierce. I don’t have any better advice for you, but I think, if that therapist saw it, he should have been of more help. Maybe you should get another therapist? I don’t know, but I think they should be able to help with that.

Question?: Autism Symptoms In 7 Year Old

Susan asks…

Autism and 2nd set of vaccines?

I found out something interesting about my brother who has autism. I was going through some paperwork his teachers filled out about him and when he was 7 the teacher reported that he was developing normally as a 7 year old. Then next years I noticed that all the comments detail him regressing. I remembered that he got his 2nd set of vaccines that’s in the controversy at age 7. I wanted to know what others think about this? The second set might have stumped his development just like the the first set?
Hmmm….charalatans? The government can lie….and who funds scientific research?
It’s easy to say that vacines aren’t linked to autism when you don’t personally have the burden of taking care of an autistic person yourself like I have. You only see the facts but when it’s in your face 24/7 you start to think. When you know your family members better than a scientist or doctor you know your true answers and you don’t need a professional to tell you what’s wrong because you’re just a statistic. They just don’t know autism.
At the alarming rate I think this country is going to get wiped out because autism kids turn into autistic adults. If you’re lucky your child will high functioning but if you’re not then…..that is it. I think you can figure out what happens, someone has to take of them. Or they become homeless….I don’t know maybe the government will do something?

admin answers:

It is possible for vaccines to cause neurological damage at any age.

Edit: Science funding can be very political. Http://www.ageofautism.com/2010/01/naked-intimidation-the-wakefield-inquisition-is-only-the-tip-of-the-autism-censorship-iceberg.html#more

LOL, “Weise Ente.” Wakefield published a “case study”–look it up — of 12 autistic kids, whose parents took them to him to look at their gastrointestinal problems, because he is a gastroenterologist. The parents happened to mention to him that the problems started after the MMR. Wakefield wasn’t even sure if he should mention in the case study that the parents told him that, but decided to, since the more information, the better. And, as a parent, I know that parental observations are very valuable in health care. So how exactly do you try to replicate that case study? That isn’t the type of study that can be replicated. Case studies by their nature are a call to further research, not the same research, lol. He made no conclustions regarding the MMR in the paper. Anyone can verify that for themselves. The paper wasn’t very long.

“BACKGROUND: We investigated a consecutive series of children with chronic enterocolitis and regressive developmental disorder. METHODS: 12 children (mean age 6 years [range 3-10], 11 boys) were referred to a paediatric gastroenterology unit with a history of normal development followed by loss of acquired skills, including language, together with diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Children underwent gastroenterological, neurological, and developmental assessment and review of developmental records. Ileocolonoscopy and biopsy sampling, magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and lumbar puncture were done under sedation. Barium follow-through radiography was done where possible. Biochemical, haematological, and immunological profiles were examined. FINDINGS: Onset of behavioural symptoms was associated, by the parents, with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination in eight of the 12 children, with measles infection in one child, and otitis media in another. All 12 children had intestinal abnormalities, ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia to aphthoid ulceration. Histology showed patchy chronic inflammation in the colon in 11 children and reactive ileal lymphoid hyperplasia in seven, but no granulomas. Behavioural disorders included autism (nine), disintegrative psychosis (one), and possible postviral or vaccinal encephalitis (two). There were no focal neurological abnormalities and MRI and EEG tests were normal. Abnormal laboratory results were significantly raised urinary methylmalonic acid compared with age-matched controls (p=0.003), low haemoglobin in four children, and a low serum IgA in four children. INTERPRETATION: We identified associated gastrointestinal disease and developmental regression in a group of previously normal children, which was generally associated in time with possible environmental triggers.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9500320

After what happened to Wakefield — he was driven out of his own country! — what scientist, with the average amount of courage, who has a career to keep and a family to feed, would dare do a study that shows MMR is a problem? They have made an example of him, that is for sure.

You are right, Wakefield *is* a good example of how science works in controversial, highly political areas of study.

“photoart,” in response to your additional details, it is very sad to think about, but the government is going to warehouse the coming surge of low functioning autistic adults in institutions and keep them drugged up. There just won’t be the money or manpower to do it any other way. I know this is the nightmare of parents everywhere–what is going to happen to their autistic children when they can no longer care for them?

Question?: Autism Signs In Toddler Girls

Susan asks…

Mommies to tots with autism..?

How do toddlers or kids act around other kids? Are they just kind of stand offish or shy? Do they still go play likes it nothing but just ignore the other kids? How exactly do they act around other kids? My son is possibly autistic. He is 27 months tonight we was at a birthday party at first he would only stay right by my side I took him into the bedroom to play with the other kids. I had to sit there with him let him get comfortable and then he stayed and played at first he would instantly come find me but eventually he was in there on his own for a good while. I did seek a peek a lot. Sometimes he was playing by himself and other times he was right there with a group of kids. How do they act?
Thanks! He doesn’t have a lot of symptoms of autism. He just isn’t talking much, doesn’t point to things unless he can touch them, and sometimes flaps and jumps and isn’t to hot on kids but other then that he doesn’t have any of the other symptoms (eye contact, aloofness, fixation, not responding to name etc) So if he does have it I would assume him to be mild.

admin answers:

My son is 2 1/2 he was diagnosed with autism at 20 months. My sister has a daycare and I try to take him up when I can so he can interact with other children. His reaction no lie is he acts like he doesn’t even see them. One little girl put her head on his lap and he never even looked down.

If he is not showing any other signs I wouldn’t be too concerned. I had me a shy little boy 18 years ago, he is just now starting to let loose, God help us all. Lol

I just pray and keep trying to encourage him to play with others. God bless

Question?: Schizophrenia Test

Linda asks…

Is there a test for Schizophrenia?

My biological father and lots of the men in his family have schizophrenia. I am just wondering if there is a test I could get. (not too worried lol) Is it a psychological test or a blood test? Or perhaps an MRI?

admin answers:

Well, its not an MRI, of course. Since its genetic, it would be in your blood, but a CBC is not sensitive enough. So, you want to research DNA testing, however, just be sure the science is developed enough to detect this area. GOOD LUCK

(User Info | Send a Message) I’m not sure how much those kind of programs would have helped someone like me. I’ve had a growing awareness of my own sensory issues for sometime and I’ve gotten by in college without making friends or engaging in social activities. I have difficulty relating to most other young people my age and I have better relationships with my professors than with my peers. I’m sort of lonely sometimes but for the most part I realize that I’m happier being alone than being bothered by other people so for this reason I have chosen not to live in the dorms. I don’t think it would do much for making friends if I held a grudge against my neighbors for expressing their loud, youthful exuberance. I thought the comments about “so and so will be a college professor someday” were a little odd. My understanding is that it’s getting rather difficult to get a tenured position these days, regardless of skill level. I’m intending to go to grad school anyway but stating with such certainty that someone will be a professor seems a little misleading.

(User Info | Send a Message) I think this is a really great episode, having a program like this would have helped me hugely in college/university. I did it mostly on my own, but with the help of an amazing social worker who really helped me out with learning executive function skills as well as coping with everything. Living on campus here is probably not as bad because everyone has their own room – but I don’t know if I could have survived having to share a dorm with someone (my main coping mechanism was retreating to the solitude of my small room – my only space of isolation). I think, regarding sensory issues, noise is also a big one, especially with living in a college environment. I found mealtimes particularly trying as the noise of over 100 people talking loudly all around me used to make me swallow my food too quickly then I’d feel sick for hours afterwards. To the above commenters – I think you’re being unfair. It’s true there are all different types of people with autism, and some may go to university whereas some may not; however, I don’t think doing a commentary based on the experience of university students is somehow stigmatizing those who do not go to uni. The episodes of Autism Talk Tv I’ve seen so far have been very varied, and this is the first one I’ve seen about university.

(User Info | Send a Message) I did amazingly well in college. Its so NOT high school and academics are easy for me. I have tried everything I can think of to manage in an corporate/institution type office, but have failed, so I am ‘self employed and don’t have health benefits and I pay (or rather, owe) an enormous amount in taxes ($9,000 this year!!). I have tried both coming out of and staying in the ASP closet, but neither seemed to help. Additionally, I was never bullied until I was working in a corporate/institution type office.
