My 1st 6 year daugher is suffering from LCA, bcoz of fear in our mind of 25% risk in second child, we were forced to take a decision for abortion twice. now again my wife is pregnant and we want to continue the pregnancy, can any one give me good suggestion??? also can some one introduce themselves who is in the same situation and has normal 2nd child...
I am going to be a Consultative teacher at another campus in our county. One child has been diagnosed with autism and is also deaf. I have worked with students who had some hearing loss, but through the use of technology and a small microphone he was able to meet his goals and beyond.. I would like to have guidance on "my" transition into this class.
My daughter was born with septo-optic dysplasia, a vision impairment for the most part; arthrogryposis, stiffness of the joints; slow development of her biceps (so her arms mostly stay down by her side); and no sense of smell. she refuses to eat solid foods or drink anything other than pediasure or water. I'm really at a loss and looking for someone that could relate and help!
Would like to find groups/communities that I can learn more about how to help my kid and advocate for better resources at our local schools. Thanks!
Does anyone have a child with the dual diagnosis of blindness and autism? I mean true autism. Not just looking like an autistic child because of blind behavior. If you do, what kind of therapy does your child get? Do they get ABA? How do you deal with the visual aspect of ABA? Autistic school or blind school? Which is better?
The advice I have received from everyone has been so helpful and comforting so I thought I would throw another question out there :) We have been discussing school alot recently..public school v.s a day student at a school for the blind. We still have about a year until she is preschool age but if we choose a school for the blind, we need to start the process of moving asap.
She was born with severe bilateral micropthalmia caused by a goene deletion called OTX2. When she was 2 yrs old when someone would talk she would repeat one word in the sentence. She then abruptly stopped when she was 3. She did start walking at 3 and people told me she would talk again when she wasn't consentrating on walking. That was 2 1/2 years ago and she still isn't talking.
We are getting extremely concerned, she has optic nerve hypoplaysia and septo optic dysplaysia. I just don't know how to help her, if some of her other issues are causing her to be unable to learn or if this is pretty typical due to the lack of sight.
