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 12 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. Does 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, e.g.; 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!

Feedback from a mom after starting the
Developmental Milestones with her son:

We started going through just a few of the developmental milestones a couple of days (after the May 2018 Newsletter arrived), and Alex has been so much more interactive already. Today he initiated playing with a few toys - and we even played together. It was fun, not forced. I noticed his motor skills have improved. Without even asking him, Alex came and sat down at the dinner table (we usually have a tantrum). Tonight he played games with me and sat through Toy Story! He never does that. It is unbelievable how he has grown in just a few months!"

Why You'll Need to Teach Your Child How to 'Act' Their Age...after they are at baseline on Respen-A

"My 8 year-old son is now free from the trap of autism through the use of Respen-A, and sometimes he still acts like a 3 year-old! What's up with that?!"

As part of Team Respen-A™ , I talk with parents about many issues, and this is a simple concern that, through Elaine's wisdom, I was able to understand and address with my own son, Tyler, who's been on Respen-A™ for 12 years.

Just because you've started using Respen-A™ doesn't mean that your child is going to instantly behave beautifully in all situations. Responding with meltdowns and tantrums is what they are familiar with- it was their 'normal' behavior, perhaps one of the only ways they knew to 'connect' with you if they were non-verbal before they started using Respen-A™ . However, to fit into a mainstream classroom, or to behave politely and properly when out in public, your child will need to learn what they missed when they were trapped in autism.

Your child missed all of your teaching moments while they were 'trapped' in autism, which is why, now that they are free, you'll want to teach them again- only this time, they'll actually be learning and retaining the information because their brain is functioning at a far higher capability (see before and after Respen-A™ EEG images through the link below).

Here's an example that one mother shared with me. Within her son's first two weeks on Respen-A™, she brought him to his classroom, and several of his new friends happily ran up to him, wanting to play. He responded, "go away! I don't like you!" His mom was horrified- he had been making so many gains, and this was like taking ten giant steps backwards! This was actually a teaching moment in learning to use the right words. Hopefully next time, when her son is not wanting to play as soon as he steps into the classroom, he can say, "I want to play, but not right now".

Teaching moments can help your kiddo learn how to use the right words instead of throwing a tantrum or having a meltdown. Help your child by preparing them for life, teach them, then set them free!

Watch for teaching moments- your child is going through a metamorphosis, and you've got to help them become a butterfly... help to set them FREE!

My son, Tyler, age 17, has been testing the PST disc since Spring of 2020. We switched back to Respen-A every few months to determine which we saw greater benefit from, and it is clear that PST was favored. Ultimately it was due to the ease of using the disc while not having to supplement calcium, but there were no losses in gains from switching, and the PST had a slight advantage in having him be more kind as a teenager.

We began testing PST with the AM-4 in late Spring 2021. The differences are notable: Tyler now self-directs his school work, even spending time doing homework on weekends, rather than my having to constantly remind him. Prior to AM-4 Tyler was a procrastinator, now his is driven and self-motivated. Prior to AM-4, Tyler would not wear trousers- he'd missed out on fancy Mother's Day Bruch, and Thanksgiving Buffets due to his stubbornness. Now, with AM-4, he wears jeans and slacks on his own initiative, even on hot days.

Prior to AM-4 Tyler could care less whether or not he finished his Eagle Scout had dragged on for over a year and his only excuse was that the beneficiary was a 'snowbird' who lived in Arizona from December till June that didn't want anything done without her here in Montana. Once on AM-4 Tyler hit the ground running and wrapped up the project (installing 4 benches on concrete platforms at a local cemetery) in two weekends. He will complete his Eagle Board of Review this weekend!

Tyler is studying cello this semester and sometimes practices four times a day. Prior to AM-4, when studying violin, I couldn't get him to practice once a week! There are more benefits, but I think this sentence from Tyler to me last Friday sums it up: "Mom, you thought it was autism all along, but it was just me being a teenager".

Elaine developed an AM-4 disc, many years ago, and then set it aside. Little is known about AM-4 except that it blocks the inhibitory effects of alanine on MAO-A. Elaine thought AM-4 might stimulate the gene expression of MAO-A because AM-4 is used 1 day on 2 days off, which follows the MAO-A half-life: MAO-A lasts 3 days in the body before it's used up and gone (MAO-A gets used up in its reactions).

Elaine had a hunch that the AM-4 needed to be tested thoroughly. Early results show that it works well in conjunction with the PST disc. Testing is also being conducted with AM-4 and Respen-A, and by itself to determine what method will provide more gains in freeing people from the trap of autism. Please see parent feedback* in regards to testing.

There are many things in life that we have no answers for why they work, but, based on results, we'll take it!

If you feel that your child’s improvements have reached a plateau or that there seems to be some hurdle they just can’t get over, it may be a co-existing condition called pyroluria.

Pyroluria is common in autism, ADD, ADHD and depression. Pyroluria is the result of a buildup of the waste products, called kryptopyroles, from the production of hemoglobin. The symptoms of pyroluria are very similar to many of the symptoms associated with autism. The treatment for pyroluria is supplementation of 30 mg zinc, 15 mg vitamin B6 in the form of pyridoxal 5- phosphate (P-5-P), and eating foods high in arachidonic acid, which are eggs, butter, red meat and liver.

Vitamin B6 and/or P-5-P can aggravate the PST (phenol-sulfur-transferase) problem of some children, by making it difficult for the child to process phenols. B6 in the form of P5P (pyridoxal-5-phosphate) inhibits PST (phenol-sulfur-transferase) activity. This could be why some children show adverse effects when supplements high in P5P are started. IF YOUR CHILD HAS AN ISSUE WITH PHENOLS, JUST USE ZINC)
