Autistic Children - Tips For Parents To Deal With!

The moment when you learn about your child being autistic can be a life changing moment for you. You might feel all the dreams and aspirations which you built around your child come crashing down on a pile of zilch. However, recent developments in this field show that you can certainly take steps to make your child more comfortable and bond well with them. 

Autism related disorder usually begin before the age of 3, when the child starts encountering problems in communication and social interaction. This article tries to help you find a way to deal with an autistic child:

  1. Learn more about autism: Learn about autism as much as you can; a broad understanding of the causes and symptoms of the disorder can help you understand your child better. This will also enable you to respond to your child’s needs better, both physical and psychological. 
  2. Build a strong support system: It is difficult to parent a child who is suffering from autism. Communicating and interacting with your child might be extremely difficult and problematic. In order to overcome this stress, you should have a strong support network, a support network from which you can draw your strength and logic once you have to take major life decisions for your child. 
  3. Review your treatment options: It is advisable to start treatment immediately after the diagnosis is done. Early treatment can help better your child’s cognitive skills that can help him/her cope better with the surroundings and circumstances. The treatment options include behavioral training whereby self-help or social skills training is used to work on the child’s communication skills and behavior. Specialized therapy is another option whereby the therapies are directed at a particular aspect of the child, primarily speech or physical functioning. 
  4. Focus on your child’s diet: Diet plays an important role in the regularization of any disease. Even in case of autism, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals makes it very important to analyze the diet and then assess it. Consult with the doctor before making any modification to the child’s diet. 
  5. Behavioral training: Behavioral training is an aspect of autism treatment that allows the child to adapt to various conditions. Before a child undergoes behavioral training, it is advised to assess his/her behavior, functional abilities and the environment your child belongs to. The objective of this therapy or training is to induce desired behavior and get rid of the undesirable ones. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Hello, parkinson's desease can cause skin changes making skin extremely dry. It could also be a side-effect of a medicine as the medicines given for parkinson's are strong. For cracked and painful heels, the solution is moisturizing and nuetralising the dryness. I don't know what medicines you have used, -use polysporin cracked heels cream or put vaseline petroleum jelly on the cracks, put in good amount. -massage feet with a lot of moisturiser. -try to scrape the dry skin by dipping feet in hot water for some time.(avoid the areas that are painful) - never let the feet dry, apply moisturiser and vaseline repeatedly. -at last, in the night before bed, make her wear cotton socks after moisturising. -do not walk bare feet, wear soft chappal, if possible, wear socks most of the time. You will have to help her for applying moisturiser and make her follow all the instructions as she is suffering from parkinson's and might not be able to take so much care on her own.

not getting menstruation could be due to breast feeding of the baby. if not you have to look for other causes. epilepsy and the medicines used for treating it are not known to cause any menstrual disturbance. if you are not breast feeding pregnancy has to be ruled out and other causes have to be looked in to.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
I am suffering from insomnia and early awakening when I woke up feel extremely tired.
Hello, main causes of sleeping disorders are as follows:- significant life stress (job loss or change, death of a loved one, divorce, moving) illness. Emotional or physical discomfort. Environmental factors like noise, light, or extreme temperatures (hot or cold) that interfere with sleep. Do meditation every morning. Take kali phos 6x, 5 tabs every night. Take avena sativa q, 10 drops and passiflora q, 30 drops, mix them in half cup of water and drink it, half an hour before your bed time, daily for a month. This will definitely help you. Thanks.

What are the preferred medications should be taken if a person is known to be in the early stages of migraine? Please help me.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Here are some tips to prevent a migraine attack, drugs are not essential in early stages: 1. Identify and avoid migraine triggers. You can keep track of your headache patterns and identify headache triggers by using a headache diary. 2. Recall what was eaten prior to an attack to help you identify chemical triggers. 3. Manage stress to prevent or reduce the severity of the migraine attacks. 4. Follow a regular daily routine and get adequate rest. 5. Exercise (in moderation) regularly.

I am suffering from migraine problem from last 3 days. Please provide me the right.

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Hi lybrate-user, These four natural cures can help prevent, as well as reduce, the severity and the frequency of migraine attacks. 1. Exercise For a long time, doctors have been recommending exercise to migraine sufferers, and new evidence supports the idea that physical activity does help in preventing migraines. Gentle, regular exercise aids your body ward off stress and reduces tension, two things that are famous for triggering migraines. Exercising is also a good way of triggering the body to release endorphins, which are a mild, natural sedative. As a start, 75 minutes of vigorous or 150 minutes of mild aerobic activity, spread out over the course of a week 2. Magnesium: The human body does not make its own magnesium, meaning that you have to rely on dietary and supplement sources to get it. Magnesium supplements help your muscles and nerves throughout your body and brain relax; it also helps in preventing nerves from getting overexcited. Overall, the mineral is helpful in the reduction and prevention of migraines. If you would rather skip supplements, the best food sources of magnesium are black beans, quinoa, and flaxseeds 3. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) - Also known as Riboflavin, Vitamin B2 is found in certain supplements and foods. It helps protect body cells from incurring oxidative damage as well as increasing energy production. It is widely reported that Riboflavin significantly reduces migraine headaches when consumed at high levels of about 400 mg a day, but it does not seem to have any effect on reducing the length or intensity of a migraine once it occurs. The best food sources of Riboflavin include whole grains, yogurt, almonds, eggs, spinach, and broccoli. It is recommended that you store these food sources away from sunlight; otherwise, the rays will destroy the chemical. 4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids - Anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids are abundant in a variety of food sources, especially seeds, nuts, and fish. These substances protect your brain cells and reduce inflammation, therefore reducing the pain associated with migraines. Besides, Omega-3 seem to be beneficial in reducing the duration and frequency of migraine headache attacks. The best food sources of these fats include flaxseeds, chia seeds, Pacific oysters, rainbow trout and Alaskan salmon. However, Omega-3 fats are fragile and easily damaged when exposed to oxygen, light, and heat, so store the food sources in proper containers and avoid overheating during food preparation. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
