The story of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is unique compared to other disorders in that few have seen such an unexplained increase over time
A social group for 4th and 5th grade boys with autism spectrum disorder is starting in December on Monday afternoons at 3:15pm in Park Slope, focusing on issues such as having reciprocal conversations, regulating emotions, learning to read social situation and interactions accurately, and managing bullies.
Dr. Ruth Nass, M.D. is administering a study of the effects of seratonin medication on 2 to 6-year-old autistic children. Studies show that brain levels of serotonin are low in many young children with autism, but by age 6, serotonin levels increase to the point where they are similar to typically developing children. The study examines serotonin replacement during critical developmental years.
I am very excited to launch Brooklyn Letters! Here are some future ideas/plans:
We have a FREE Park Slope and/or Windsor Terrace private business and local pediatric professional (for those offering unique services) directory.
