No clapping please, instead use Jazz-hands.

My kids and I have had a few bouts of sensory overload in crowds, not sure if its just anxiety or something like this, Autism.

Is it still too early in the research of autism to determine if its learned anxiety, or maybe due to like pesticides/fluoride or something?

I read that research, and I can most likely point out the external factors. Even though despite what you believe, fluoride though an external component in our environment is having a positive effect and not a negative.

No. Actually it's not.

Kids are kids. All of them will act up now and then and probably have sensory overload.

But, there's a difference. And sometimes it takes a trained person to catch it.

My kid was first recognized at about 18 months. I thought the teacher was nuts. It took me a long time to fully accept what I was dealing with.

You would not recognize him as being on the spectrum unless you spent time with him.

You don't need cats or pets when treating autism. It might help though in particular cases. My granddaughter is showing steady improvement. Not in her condition but in learning how to relate to others and the environment. My daughter moved out of Glasgow to get her the schooling she needs. Let me show you. The first video is when she was 3 1/2yrs the second taken the other day at 5 1/2.







I had already seen that video you posted about the experience of the Asperger's dude taking '___'. I was really referring to the studies done in the 60's and 70's. I thought you might have had some thoughts on it. Nothing more.
I have learned something from this thread. I have always approached my granddaughter as if she is a sort of total right brainer with extreme anxiety...sort of. It seemed to help in my understanding and has definitely helped in how I treat her and our interaction. I hadn't considered the idea that she might have to learn how to love.

Lets try it like this, A ordinary emotional human being, makes hir unpredictable, despite being taught wrong and right in life. A ordinary human lives to feel or hir dies, from loneliness, brainsex starvation. Those with Autism also need the basic need of social interaction, despite being socially awkward.
I believe some of the tantrums are a reinforced behavior, it comes with a reward.

Create a social life, with genuine interests, a special field of interest, that will stick through a lifetime and not just something that offers more social interaction at the moment, like "pokemon go".

You have to take her out of her comfort zone, despite the feelings you feel. They dont feel the same as you do, they mimic your feelings and their opposite for a reward.
--

Studies conducted showed a profound interest in the outside world, however six weeks of research makes it inconclusive. They do however "feel" something.
--

Teaching the social norms early and to read human emotions, and later teaching the dogma of society.

Hi Tikbalang, thanks for replying. I hesitated before posting those videos as I know that you aren't into 'small talk', for want of a better phrase. I just thought I would put a human face onto an otherwise anonymous conversation.

I agree with a lot of what you say. Emma (my granddaughter) in a way is very clever. She forgets nothing and loves school and learning. Having said that, it was difficult to get her to accept that environment. Anything that incorporates any sort of change immediately gives rise to anxiety. My daughter called me the other day, like she does with any news, telling me that she had eaten her first sandwich. Next goal might be an actual meal. This was accomplished when she and my daughter sat down with a nutritionist who explained the ins and out of the necessities of food to Emma. Although she struggled, she ate a sandwich and thanked her mum for helping her. She is very logical in an autistic sort of way.
She has no friends in school but has brothers and sisters which will help her socialise. You are spot on in that she has to learn how to read human emotion. It is constant and ongoing but she seems to understand. I have hope for her future.
We are proud of her...she has to overcome and somehow deal with extreme anxiety...and she is progressing. She does have feelings but this thread has made me think about that disconnect...

Regards Midicon.

I can recommend an animated movie for you and your family to watch all together, its called - "The boy and the beast"
Watch it in a way of a story being told about a autistic person trying to learn how to become human..
You have both sides of the story, the one who adapted and the who couldnt..

Thank you for understanding in the first phrase.. Many fail to understand that, your granddaughter should be thankful for having you as a grandparent..

You should probably remove the clips, i did further research into the treatments..

Edit; The research is inconclusive, you need a behavior modifier..

It was my intention to remove those clips at some point. I did make sure that my daughter was okay with me posting them here.
Thanks for the video film idea, also for the kind remarks. I spoke to my daughter today and mentioned your take on autism she said 'totally'. I have learned that she was already aware of the reinforcement of autistic behaviour, also about how it didn't matter to her that Emma might not love her in the normal sense but it might be more of a security thing.

Thanks again

Midicon

I'll have a look at that behaviour modifier.
