Can we give probiotics to a 2 yrs 7 months child having auditory processing disorder and what should be the dosage for the same ?

My Son comes in the autism spectrum , even though we haven t got a proper report saying whether it is ADHD or autism. He is 2 years and 7 months. Currently we are giving him fish oil and Vitamin B complex.Some times he behaves as if he is not hearing anything . I would like to know whether he should be given some probiotics and which all organisms should be there. I heard about one probiotic called prepro Kid (PREPRO KID sachet: bifidobacterium infantis 100 million, bifidobacterium longum 100 million, lactobacillus acidophilus 650 million, lactobacillus rhamnosus 400 million).Can this be given to my child. If yes, please guide me on the dosage and frequency for giving that. I would also like to get advice on whether DMG (whether it will help him), since they doubt him to have auditory processing disorder. We are from India, could you please guide us on specialists in this field

Occupational Therapist 's  Response
have you consulted doctor regarding his diagnosis. diagnosis for autism is given at 3 to 3 1/2 years only. before that he will be in queries only. some diet and product are available for kids with autism and ADHD, but, it doesn't help too much, for your satisfaction you can give for your son. don't wait for diagnosis and go for products.
go for hearing test(BERA) and consult your occupational therapist regarding his issues.
thank you.

Welcome to HCM
First of all I would like to know the proper diagnosis your baby as there is a vast difference between ADHD and autism.
Now the probiotic(means which helps life) factor usually used in loose motion and it contains various helpful bacteria.These bacteria helps our intestinal tract in many ways.Though they are bacteria,they are not harmful if given in proper doses.So it can be given to anybody safely.
Lastly I would always request you to go to your pediatrician for the best advice.
Thanking you.
