Suzanne, if you want to talk more privately, I'd be happy to help.

 

At 4, you need to contact the local district for testing.  They will do all that for FREE.  The districts are federally responsible for education-related issues after their  third birthday.  However, also get medical opinions from his pediatrician as well as specialists.  I will say that the state of FL (at least in Orange/Osceola/Seminole area that we dealt with for Sam), is EONS beyond the state of Michigan when it comes to Early On and ECSE programs.

 

I've heard great things about Dr. Qureshi.  We, however, saw Dr. Keely--developmental pediatrician (not impressed) and Dr. Ron Davis--pediatric neurologist (VERY impressed) in Orlando.  Sam also saw a pedi neuro in Michigan.

 

There are online resources for the MChAT.....Granted he's not a toddler anymore, but it would give you an idea of what they are looking for and maybe cause you to think back and say "yeah, he did do that or still does do that"

 

As I said, I'll happily talk to you privately.  Sam's diagnosis is PDD-NOS: Pervasive Developmentla Delay-Not Otherwise Specified.  He's not Autistic, nor does have Aspberger's.  I know what both look like, I have a biological nephew with Autism and a step-nephew with Aspberger's.

I've heard mixed reviews on Quershi - I was not at all impressed when we went, but everyone is different.  We currently see Ronald Davis for my son's neurology needs and I've been real happy there although I don't know what kind of testing they do. Although we see Dr Davis for neurology, we went to a developmental pediatrician for full developmental testing and Dr Davis also referred us to FL Hosp for screening for auditory processing disorder (he's still too young to fully test foir that though, we'll take him again in a year or two)

Are any of these specialists pointing out the cause and offering a cure?

 

If not, you need to find ones who are.

Thanks ladies! I am learning from this thread as well! We see Qureshi, and I like her better than the first neuro we saw in St Pete, but I am always keeping an ear out for other neurologists, just in case. We will keep Dr. Davis in mind.
Not all neurological disorders can be cured.  My nephew  had a compressed chord during delivery and lack of oxygen causing brain damage.  There is no "cure" for that.

Agreed.  We go to neuro for my son's epilepsy which they have not found a cause as they can't in most epileptic patients. Unless it's from a growth or tumor that you can have removed or you want a piece of your kid's brain removed (which for some kids is certainly appropriate but too drastic for many cases, like my son's), there's not a cure for that either. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll outgrow it, maybe he won't. But finding the cause and curing misfires in the brain?  Now, my neuro did find the likely cause of my son's early learning difficulties and speech delay - yup, those misfires are in that part of the brain, so with medication we are able to reduce the misfires and his learning and speech (and behavior)  have dramatically improved - so from that aspect, yes, the specialist pointed out the cause and offered a solution.

I understand that. However, most of these problems we have today which have become epidemic are NOT genetics-gone-haywire. Most cases are children being poisoned - mostly from vaccines.

Children need to be detoxed from the aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, aborted fetal tissue, monkey kidneys, monkey brains, calf serum, caterpillar cells, etc, which are causing countless autoimmune diseases and neurological disorders.

By the way, why does the federal government have these websites in order to report vaccine injuries and to be compensated for these injuries?

Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

A product that assaults people cannot be healthy - PERIOD !!!!

Can there be any thread looking for medical/developmental advice/discussion that doesn't have to turn into a vaccine issue?  Even if I believed vaccines caused my son's issues (which I don't) it's not helpful after the fact when looking for doctors, therapies, evaluations, etc

.

 

Alicia,

 

What do you think about Bertrand Russell's amazingly prophetic quote from 1953?

 

Seems he knew something most of us don't - nor do most WANT to find out.

 

Your children are under assault, and I'm here, unapologetically - to help sound the alarm.

 

Men are supposed to protect the young and innocent.

 

By the way, if some of you watch the following documentary and still disagree with what I have to say - well, one can lead a horse to water...............

Alicia,

 

IF it can be reversed (depending on their age and whether they continue to be vaccinated) it should behoove anyone to at least investigate that possibility.

 

AND, at the very least, other parents should be warned so as to not have to be victimized - themselves and children.  They start injecting aluminum and mercury (severe neurotoxins) into moms (which directly assaults wombs) before the baby is born with flu vaccinations. Then the Hep B vaccine is given within minutes of birth.  Then the assault continues heavily with each "well baby" visit".   This criminal assault on our kids needs to be exposed before we lose several generations.

 

Doctors who are in denial need to be avoided.  They are part of the problem, not the solution.

 

And Alicia, don't take this personal.  We are the victims, and I am just the messenger.
