Hi, my name is Nadia
I would like to share some information that can be very helpful for moms which children have Autism and CP. For us parents it is very important to know if we are raising our children right and if not how to do it properly. Because each child is an individual and we parents need help to find the correct approach.
It is so important to find a really good Doctor, knowledgeable, experienced and a humanitarian, that your child and you could work with as a team.
I know one of them, it is Natan Gendelman. Natan is a very knowledgeable, experienced and humanitarian practitioner. He puts a lot of effort in his work and you can see the result of his treatments very fast. He and his group of therapists are doing an amazing job! Working with them at the treatments you feel support and you feel that you are not alone!
I would strongly recommend clinic Health In Motion Rehabilitation. This clinic specializes in treating children with cerebral palsy and Autism. You can call or write an e-mail and ask any questions.

I'm not an expert, however, all my children with special needs training is within the Autism spectrum - there are several resources you can utilize:



Early Invervention (EI)

Your local public school district (starting at age 3)

Park Districts have great services



There is also help for you....

Read, ask questions, don't hesitate to ask again and for clarification

There are several forums for parents that have children with special needs online where you can share everything and get great advice - cliche, but effective - google them.



Some starter questions:

What type of Autism does your child have? Then read up on that specific one...there is PDD, Aspergers, Child Disintegrative disorder, and Rhetts syndrome (check spelling). Then ask, what is the severity of the disorder?



Immediate actions can include limiting any stimulus that may upset your child - loud noises, bright lights, crowded areas, certain strong aromas - each child is different, so will react differently.



I hope this helps:)
