Identifying an Anxious Kid
Anxiety can have many forms - in some kids it mostly shows up as anxious thoughts, worrying, or nightmares. For other kids, anxiety may show up in purely physical form, without any anxious thoughts. Instead, these kids might have issues like stomach aches, headaches, ticks and twitches, or even rashes and hives.
Once you recognize the signs of anxiety in your child, you can start to help them and teach them how to help themselves, when anxiety strikes.
Hope for Kids with PANDAS and PANS
Over the last few years parents and pediatricians have been noticing a strange phenomenon happening with certain kids. A child can be perfectly happy and normal, then out of the blue develop tics and spasms, extreme anxiety, obsessive compulsive behaviors, mood swings, anorexia, aggression, hyperactivity, cognitive changes, or any combination of the above.
This is a tragic change, and often parents and doctors are at a loss when trying to figure out what might be causing these symptoms and behaviors.
Natural Treatments for Autism: Parents Report on What Worked, What Didn't
While there are a lot of exciting new theories and great clinical data out there about holistic treatments for kids on the autism spectrum, who better to ask what works and what doesn't work but the parents themselves? That's just what the Autism Research Institute did with their 2007 survey entitled "Parent Ratings of Behavioral Effects of Biomedical Interventions." This survey asked more than 26,000 parents about the therapies they tried to help their children with ASD - what worked, and what didn't. Check out the chart below for a comparison of a few of the most effective treatments.
