Finding Mikey - Parenting our kiddo with Autism (ASD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), ADHD, Aspergers

Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome have impacted our family, and this is the chronicle of our journey. We are Mike and Heather, and we share stories from our family, along with interviews from experts in the Autism community. We will talk with Authors, Specialists, Doctors, Activists and legal professionals to gather insight on how to better prepare our kids for full integration into school, society and independent adulthood. Our goal is to INSPIRE other parents, a little bit each day, so that they feel confident in their abilities as parents and to help them be the best advocate for their kiddos' growth. http://www.findingmikey.com

What Is Happening In My Son’s Brain? An Interview With Dr. Carlton

On today’s episode, I have a very special interview with Dr Ed Carlton. He is our doctor. Heather goes to him for chiropractic care. Mikey goes to him for neurofeedback training and I just started and have had two sessions with him of my own for neurofeedback training. He treats children and adults to improve their performance and relieve symptoms from brain based disorders. He's a certified neurofeedback provider and he's a member of the International Society of Neurofeedback and Research. He graduated from the Texas Chiropractor College and is also a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. He's the author of the book “The Answer: the Book for Anyone with A.D.D., A.D.H.D., Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Epilepsy, P.T.S.D. or Traumatic Brain Injury” and you can get that for free by going to www.findingmikey.com/theanswer. Today we learn about neurofeedback training, that a brain map measures the electricity generated by the brain and the treatment that follows after the mapping, as well as, what can be expected after further treatments.

Give them a wall to bounce off of! - Home Sensory Gym

Today we are going to dive into the topic of using sensory tools for treatment. We only really became aware of the concept of a sensory gym after getting involved with Mikey’s Occupational Therapy sessions. There are more than just your five senses; there are other senses called proprioceptive and vestibular sense as well. In his sessions we learned what those sense are and how they can help regulate Mikey by getting those senses back in balance. When Mikey started doing Occupational Therapy, he was three and half years old. He was not diagnosed with autism at this point, only early onset ADHD and sensory processing disorder. He also had low muscle tone in his core and in his wrists. In occupational therapy they had him do agility courses to work on his core muscles in a fun way, and way that a kid would enjoy! Stay tuned as we go into more detail about creating your own sensory room and the purpose of each piece of equipment for your child. All this and more inside today’s episode.

It's been a YEAR - Anniversary Episode

Today’s show is the Anniversary Show and the podcast has been a great way for us to share our journey. We’ve been asking for all of you in the audience to provide some feedback and we’ve gotten it in so many different ways. One area we hadn't paid attention to in quite a long while has been on our actual reviews page. So we’re giving some shoutouts today.It’s the anniversary of Mikey’s diagnosis. There is a lot to go through and you’ve been with us for the most part, the highs and the lows, but we figured it would be a good opportunity for us to just wrap it all up. We are talking about what this year has been like, what we have done, what the observations have been and surprisingly, Heather has pages of notes. We are celebrating the wins today, so join in with us as we go through it all with you!
