    Has anyone found out that your child has Autistic Features?

    Hi there,

    I have a child who has Autistic Features. He is 2 years and 8 months old now and will be going into a special school in August. I just like to point out to everyone who has a autistic child is to accept and appreciate god for giving you this child. At first, I was very unhappy and upset but after awhile, I managed to talk to my husband and both share our views on our son and his future. I simply just want him to be happy and understand the basic knowledge of growing, other than that, to be independant.
    I hope anyone out there who also have the same problem can share with me. I will be much appreciated if we can exchange our feeling and may even become friends.
    I can be contactable on 9251 0252. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Regards
    Jean

    It was nice to speak to you on the phone Jean.

    Anyone who has a child with autism can be reassured that it is not a mental disorder but a biological disorder that can receive medical treatrment with good chances of improvement / recovery. There is a gorwing body of reserch from the USA to support this finding.

    There is an Autism Conference here in HK this August - (www.conference.autismpnhk.org) with top researchers from around the world! Information on biomedical approach and therapy.

    Theray (ABA) is available in HK by Autsim Recovery Network (a parents, non-profit making organisation) at www.autismrec.net The therapists are very dedicated.

    Another useful HK website with information on the biomedical approach is autism parent network foundation (www.autismpnhk.net)

    Dr Trodd, Shui-On Centre, is very experienced in helping autistic children with the biomedical approach, my son has made huge improvements in just a few months.

    Yes I'm going to the conference. Its over 2 days, so my husband will go on one day and I will go on the other day (so one of us can look after our son). And I think one day might be all I can handle!

    Have anyone tried any of the following places?

    Hello there again,

    Have anyone tried any of the following places:

    1) Wise & Potential Development centre

    http://www.potential-develop.com

    2) Paymond Lee Speech Therapist/New page

    http//www.speechtherapy.com.hk / http//www.newpage.hk

    3) Child Growth & Development Center

    http//www.arlen.com.hk


    Anyway, I've started the speech therapy at Raymond Lee's centre with my son Marvin (which is also called New Page) and cost $700 per session. He explained the minimum effect for a child's improvement is around 3 months so I am trying this out. Keep you up with the news later on if there are improvement on Marvin.

    Jean
