How Developmental Milestones can bring your child up to their chronological age...
Developmental milestones are a set of functional skills or age-specific tasks that most children can do at a certain age range. Your pediatrician uses milestones to help check how your child is developing. Although each milestone has an age level, the actual age when a normally developing child reaches that milestone can vary quite a bit. Every child is unique! At least, this is what the general rule is, which is why a diagnosis of autism can be difficult for a pediatrician to acknowledge. Mine told me that my son was doing just fine, that I had nothing to worry about even though life at home proved otherwise, and she looked at me like I was crazy to have accepted an offer to enroll my 4 year old in an autism study.

Now that my son has been free from the trap of autism for 9 years because of Respen-A , I've learned, through Elaine, that children cannot skip developmental milestones- every human being must experience them! When your child became trapped in autism, he/she stopped experiencing these milestones, and they need to be revisited. This will bring him/her up to chronological age responses and behavior quickly, in a profound way.

Child development refers to how a child becomes able to do more complex things as they get older. Development is different than growth. Growth only refers to the child getting bigger in size. When we talk about normal development, we are talking about developing skills like:

  • Gross motor skills: using large groups of muscles to sit, stand, walk, run, etc., keeping balance and changing positions
  • Fine motor skills: using hands to be able to eat, draw, dress, play, write, and do many other things
  • Language skills: speaking, using body language and gestures, communicating, and understanding what others say
  • Cognitive skills: thinking skills including learning, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning, and remembering
  • Social skills: interacting with others, having relationships with family, friends, and teachers, cooperating and responding to the feelings of others.

With autism, clearly there is a disconnect, and some missing pieces. Think of childhood like putting together a puzzle in the brain. The pieces prior to autism are in place, and more begin to be laid when your child is set free from the trap, but not quickly, and most are missing from the developmental milestone years (age 0 - 5 years). Parents often comment, "he's doing better in all of these areas, but he still behaves like a six year old in many ways!"

Put it to the test. Ask your child to crawl. Do he/she do it correctly? The right hand should move forward at the same time as the left knee, then left hand with right knee. You will likely see a right hand with right knee, then left hand with left knee approach- which is wrong. Why does this matter? Milestones lay the foundation for the brain to function correctly. Chaos disappears with use of the Respen-A , but then you'll need to prepare an environment for life and learning by putting the missing puzzle pieces into place, in the brain, and this can only happen by doing the developmental milestones. These will set your child up for success, both now and in the future.

For general ranges on what developmental milestones are often expected at various ages, check out the guides by following the link below. However, not knowing where your child stopped experiencing them, I suggest beginning with age 0 - 3 months when you revisit them, and work up from there. Then, think outside the box to turn these milestones into a game that your child will be acquiescent to 'play'. Following are some examples:
Thumb sucking : blindfold your child, then dip their thumb into one of three smooth substances, eg; melted chocolate, melted marshmallow, peanut butter. They must put their entire thumb in their mouth and suck it clean (no licking allowed) before guessing what the substance is.
Reaching and grasping : have your child lay on their back. Stand over them and swing a pencil or pen- that has been tied to a string- back and forth, just within reach, and challenge them to reach and grasp hold of it.
Turning eyes from bright light : take your child into a small room with no windows. Turn the lights out. Turn on a flashlight that you have aimed straight into their eyes. If they don't look away instantly but instead squint at you, teach them the correct response and explain why. Then, repeat the process several times till you are certain they've learned.

You won't need to revisit all of the milestones- at some point while working through them your child's body and brain will naturally take over, but you do need to get the process started. Here's to your success!

Meet Alex!
Alex is 10 years old and has been taking Respen-A for almost 4 months. Almost immediately after starting the patch, he was calmer and less combative. He is more flexible now. An example is our after-school routine. When Alex gets off the bus, we take our car to pick up my older son. Before Respen-A , Alex was very upset because the last thing he wanted to do was get back in a vehicle. Most days were a struggle. It is surprising how something so trivial could cause so much stress. After a couple of months of using Respen-A , Alex has no problem going to pick up his brother after school. He now seems shockingly happy to go!

One of our main concerns is bathroom use. We have had him on a strict bathroom schedule since he was young to avoid accidents. We only really had to worry about accidents in the evening before bedtime, but it was very stressful. We would take him to the bathroom sometimes every half hour and still have a mess to clean up. Almost immediately after starting the patch, he became more self-sufficient. The issue has been resolved! He is no longer on a specific bathroom schedule. It is AMAZING! My husband says that if this was the only benefit from using Respen-A , it is worth it!

Speaking of bathroom issues, the other day Alex was upstairs longer than usual, so I went to check on him. I found him by the stairs, and we went into the bathroom. The toilet had some toilet paper in it and it, looked like it had overflowed (not the best toilet). There was no water or mess anywhere, but a couple of wet towels. Alex had cleaned up the mess and done a great job! That has never happened before, and I am certain that this behavior was because of the Respen-A .

Our other main concern is communication. Alex is talking more- he only says a few words at a time, but he is more vocal and using a variety of words. He asks for help quite a bit. He also responds more often to what we say. His comprehension seems better than before the disc., and he is getting better feedback from school as well.

We are very happy with Alex’s results so far, and I am actually surprised that he will keep the disc on his back. Before Respen-A , he wouldn’t even keep a bandage on when he needed one! Now, he will ask for his patch- he must notice the changes too!
