Year Two, Week 2 (Weekly Video #54)

I also forgot to mention in the video that he's been off Carnosine for 4 days now, totally by accident! I ran out and it was supposed to arrive today but it never did…GRRR…

*back on probiotics
*obsessed with my planner
*pool day! and 4th of July weekend
*blanket forts
*wearing tank tops! progress!
*the marigolds are growing!
*MAPS follow-up…possibly traveling for EEG, adding new supplements
*New stim…or actually, the reemergence of an old stim. Almost like a hyperventilating grunt?

Our Probiotics Experiment

Here is the link to the original article that sparked this curiosity: LINK

And here is some information on Yeast, since I mentioned that probiotics are meant to prevent/control it: LINK

Please let me know if you have any questions, or comment to let me know your own experiences with probiotics (or lack thereof) with your ASD child!

Year Two, Week 1 (Weekly Video #53)

In this video:
*back on prescription Carnitor
*probiotics experiment (more on that next week **EDIT** here is the link!)
*sleep update
*not interested in proteins this week…maybe he's bored?
*pediatrician visit…(he's now 40.5 inches tall and 36 pounds…finally growing!)
*Med Waiver update
*asking for juice by gesturing!
*upcoming holiday weekend and MAPS appointment before the next video!

I forgot to mention in the video that he's been doing SO GREAT with changes in routine lately, particularly with going places after therapy rather than straight home! He doesn't mind if I take different routes (which used to be a huge trigger before) and he's been great about going into stores with me, etc. SUCH HUGE PROGRESS!)

I also forgot to mention (though you can see it at the end of the video), Bu got on a big-boy swing for the first time ever this week!
