Hi Doctor, My son is just over two years and has been diagnosed as suffering from Autism. We are ready to start with his therapy sessions however not sure if we should take him to CMC vellore where I have heard good things however being a govt hospital the amount of patients there are huge so we are not so sure if the doctors or the MDT will be able to devote as much time as required in the treatment or should we take him to a private institution where there is 3:1 ratio of kids and is specific for children suffering from Autism

Hi, we have a daughter who is 15 years old (16 this year) with a mild autism. She has actually lost a lot of her autistic traits over the years with vitamin therapy and diet (GF & dairy free). But, she has mild-moderate learning problems, difficulty focussing on reading etc and wondered if there is any prescription with not too many side effects that we can give her? She also has mild pyroluria ( we give her B6, actually multi B and zinc etc, with other vitamins to correct this) but it is a disorder (?) that becomes worse when her hormones become more problematic when she is pre-menstral and during her period and her repetition, perseveration, lack of focus (on anything) is really difficult for her, but especially for us who have to deal with her. The odd thing is that when she is out or when other people are around, she is perfectly behaved and the tension that is building up in her (at these menstral time) comes out in an excessive stream of the same, same, same conversation which tends to drive everyone mad around her. I realise she is also a teenager and lots of this is normal, but the perseveration is very difficult with it (we have 2 other grown up kids, no problems etc) Would love some advice. cheers, Suzie
