    your teh best phil

    Denis Leary…”I’ll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out. That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.’ “…..

    I’ve been on the path of trying to understanding my son’s autistic behavior for four years. He is now five. I believe that he has greatly benefited from being brought down this path of understanding. I hope more parents choose this path.

  4. drmaier says:

    Agreed, Phil. It’s actually a suffix that modifies the adjective, applying the trait to the subject of the adjective.

  5. PhilCommander2 says:

    I agree that some parents are doing that…but a lot of parents who say to ‘accept’ autism are saying that you need to deal with the medical issues (some of which you mentioned) but there are some traits that are labeled ‘autistic behaviours’ that are actually just part of the kids personality.
    These need to be left alone and celebrated. Not enough parents are trying to discern the two though.
    Thanks for your comment!

    I understand what you’re saying about adapting yourself to understand your child’s behavior instead of wishing he was behaving differently, which I think is definitely something that needs to be addressed.

    However, the parents who are saying that autism is something beautiful that we need to accept and move on with are simply intellectually slothful. Your child is suffering from intracranial pressure, severe diarrhea, memory impairment, and you’re so lazy you’d rather say “eh, that’s how it is

  7. toorare2die says:

    i’m infuriated by the way this man repeats everything so many times. Aren’t the parents watching this insulted? Who wants to learn from that?

  8. KimberlyMahurin says:

    An autistic mind is a beautiful thing. We dont want to get rid of it. Autism is who they are. Phil I recognize the efforts you have put forth on youtube and its not easy. Thank you for sharing all your realizations for it is not easily understood for most.

  9. KimberlyMahurin says:

    Understanding autism is complex, but over time it gets easier with your knowledge. So autism and behavior is separate. Then you have acceptable behavior and bad behaviors. Bad behaviors are often due to the imbalance in the system. Once understood those behaviors can be helped making the child happy and comfortable in life.

    Thank you so much for this information. Love Sonia.

  11. bopplayer says:

    Any particular articles or books you recommend? what are your qualifications? care to tackle my $65,000 question?

  12. ABAisSCIENCE says:

    Teaching a child to say, “Mommy” sells it to a mother.

    Teach a child to mand for things such that they see control sells talking to a child.

    I don’t know who comes first in behavioral programs, but selling the product of talking to someone is critical, no doubt about it.

    I believe parental involvement is critical as Bijou & Lovaas who are behaviorists first focused on parental involvement.

    Read up on Multiple Cue Responsivity & Joint Attention for remediation of overselectivity.

  13. ABAisSCIENCE says:

    ABA is a science with 600 articles on the effectiveness for remediating autism and fourteen replication articles on Ole Ivar Lovaas’ work.

    Look it up on the internet relative to finding this comment on 600 articles.

    It seems stimulus overselectivity was found as the problem of autism by Koegel, Lovaas, and Schreibman and all three of them have their names on a grant that made Lovaas the most famous professional in the field.

  14. bopplayer says:

    Also ABAScience, explain how you transition from motivating a child to behave in a manipulated environment (meaning therapists in home or center) to wanting to behave on his/her own. How does ABA train them to be concerned with what other people think about them and their behavior? that is the $65,000.00 question to be asked to you.

  15. bopplayer says:

    I agree with you in that they over select stimulus. All autistics are either Hypo sensitive (seeking sensory) or Hyper (receiving too much) these issues must be dealt with by an OT and also use of Audio Integration. AI doesn’t work with everyone, but i’ve met many parents that said their child startd speaking clearer and in longer sentences. I’m not an OT, i’m a parent that doesn’t have the luxury of subscribing to one method because it is my career. However I know ABA is a science that works.

  16. ABAisSCIENCE says:

    bopplayer, take heart a baby with autism wiggles its’ hands and puts them it their mouth just like another baby without autism.

    The difference is that a child with autism is overselective in focus of stimulus; thus, the reinforcement schedule will be weaker for social engagement. Also, language will be experimented with getting a weaker reinforcement schedule too. This means that the baby finds more control of reinforcement with sensory play.

    Care to explain what you think about SI?

  17. bopplayer says:

    Wow not surprised at your comment coming from user name like your’s. ABA is very effective, so are other treatments, but most behaviorists only see behavior. You probably don’t believe in the need for SI, but it’s very real.

    Why do they behave this way? Motivation due to extrinsic reinforcers from experiences of the past causing conditioning for such motivations to be established.

  18. ABAisSCIENCE says:

    James Watson Double Helix & DNA video here on You Tube is not conclusive at this time, but keep in mind best known genetic autism is Fragile X which is a spectrum disorder, that guess what?, if it comes with more mutations & deletions, a dual diagnosis of autism.

    Mainly because Fragile X is autism that’s why some don’t get the autism diagnosis label as their behavior isn’t so bad due to less mutations or deletions helping them either escape labels completely or get PDD or aspergers.

  19. PhilCommander2 says:

    Autism is diagnosed by behavior due to having too many mutations in their genes or deletions”
    This is actually just your opinion. Im not saying that you are wrong or right…I’m just saying that there is no clear cause of autism and whenever anyone says that “autism is caused by” they then go on to state an opinion because there is no accepted cause of autsim.

  21. ABAisSCIENCE says:

    My nephew would look to me & answer each question to professionals my name at ending & looking to me.
    Not for approval, but because I was only person talked to 1st few months when he learned to speak.
    He also would run to a mirror if I was hurt to see if he was hurt too. So Freudian, but not really.
    When his mother would ask, “Who loves you?” he would answer with my name.
    Autism is diagnosed by behavior due to having too many mutations in their genes or deletions. Their parents do not have.

  22. springrobin says:

    ) instead of building the math lesson etc around those objects and incorporating them I don’t know…ok I do it takes more effort? I am teacher of aut.

  23. springrobin says:

    Just a BTW comment..I think it funny that seeing that it is the aut.s that have the ‘problem’ of maintaining focus(!) that you give N.T.’s so much help with maintaining their focus to get the point and stay with you, in all your vid.’s. I’ve found aut. have no trouble maintaining focus on the things that interest them…that would be kinda like all of us would it not? or am I dense? So why teachers rip away their objects of focus(usually with scolding) …cont

  24. springrobin says:

    geez but what better a united front of both parent and teacher working together makes & I’m not dreaming cuz it does happen, alot if ur willing to put out the effort. I run & join forces with parents like you & I try new ways all the time to help the others not yet as involved as you.

  25. PhilCommander2 says:

    Actually I just wanted the teachers to not mess up what I was doing. His early teachers were very honest about not being educated in autism and would ask me advice in many cases. Then he got teachers who were trained in autism and they have helped tremendously. They did their things and I did mine.
