This is said by Jason’s father. Read his full account below:
Jason, the 2nd child in our family, he got an elder sister who is 3 years older than him. It was when Jason age at 29 months we found out that he was totally too much difference with other kids. My wife has been tracking our first child, my daughter on how many vocabulary she can speak at what age. We found out that Jason doesn’t talk much. At one time he tried to talk by babbling, but no eye contact at all to us. At one time, he was sick until we need to see a child specialist. When we met the doctor, she told us that something is wrong with your son, she noticed that he got no eye contact and unable to point to anything, no attention even his name is called. She asked us to go see a specialist in autism to get the assessment. Then we go see an expert from a therapy school that can do autism assessment.
It was in middle of September 2013 I went to see Darius. It was for sure after the first assessment done by the school. Only in a span of 6 months, such a huge difference happened to my son. He is now able to respond to us, can do 2 ways interaction, much longer eye contact, can play with other friends (he was unable to play with other kids. Once we placed him under a normal school, and he has to be expelled because he couldn’t do any interaction nor responding to teacher’s instruction). And the most important thing, he got better bond with me. He was so angry before when I hug or hold his hand, he was so attached to his mother only. Now, I can go anywhere with my son without my wife.
After 1 year from the first assessment, Jason’s motoric has improved a lot, he can eat by himself, can play scooter by his own, able to walk with rollerskates, can sit about 45 minutes quietly, and very focus in doing things such as drawing, playing bricks, etc.
It was quite frequent appointment with Darius for the first 3 months [Note: Jason saw us a total of 6 sessions between Sep 2013 to Apr 2014]. But the treatment really help my son. Among all the way of therapy and treatment that my son went through, the treatment that he got from Darius is the most effective and combat the autism to the core.
I would like to give advise to all young parents, if you find out that your child is not growing as other normal kids, early detection to your child is very important. It’s way much better to do early intervention rather than you wait until they grow too old. And for parents who got autism child, never give up, you can still help your kids although it might take longer time compared to early intervention (before 5 years old, best if below 3 years old). The sign of autism would be :
– Unable to point using finger (1 finger, normally the point finger).
– Walking using their toes instead of full feet on ground.
– Eat very fast, sometimes not chewing the food.
– Not responding when calling his/her name.
– No eye contact.
– No respond to strangers.
– Can’t be hold for quite long time.
– Open and close door. Any doors.
Any of the early sign above, please go see an expert to get better assessment.
And lastly, AUTISM CAN BE CURED. Don’t believe in other people when telling you that this thing is incurable. YES, YOUR CHILD IS SO PRECIOUS AND CAN BE CURED.
