My grand son is now 3 years age, My grandson is now 3 years
My grandson is now 3 years old.1.0 Birth date 18.6.2016 in India. He shifted to Singapore in August, 2016, and moved to Australia in October, 2016.2.0 There is a chance that he had hit his head on rear side as an infant of even 2 or 3 months. In December, 2016 when I had come to see him and when we used to keep him on the bed from the lifted position, I found that even as an infant he used to take back his two palms behind the head very rapidly to protect his head, thinking that the person keeping him down may again hit his head on some hard surface.3.0 at the age of 1 year he started walking. I thing he never crawled.4.0 the child and parents used to sleep on 10 inch height mattress on floor. The way he used to get down from the bed at the age of one year was astonishing to us. He used to slide on the edge of the mattress on buttocks till his feet touch the ground. Then suddenly he will overturn on the chest and then come down on his knees, come down and then start walking on legs and running away.5.0 Since the age of 1 year, i.e June, 2017, he had fever most of the time till 7 th March 2019 and may be going sometimes beyond 104 F( this is an an assumption as he never allowed to keep colon water or salt water on the fore head which is our standard practice to lower the brain temperature.Moment it was attempted he used to cry) and above. On 23 rd Feb, 2019 first dose and on 4 th March, 2019 second dose of thread worm was given. On 7 th march he had last fever i.e Since 7 th march, 2019 he has no fever till date and his weight has gone from 9kg to 10.5 kg on 4th may,2019. High fever and metacine and homeopathic medicine were a regular feature every 15 days and sometimes weakly during these 1 and a half years.6.0 At the age of 1 year and 3 months used to say few words like mamma(mother), baba(father), aji(grandmother).7.0 I had seen him in July, 2018 (2 years and 1 month). He was not talking any words. Even the words of mamma, baba, aji which he used to talk at 1 year and 3 months, were all gone. Used to run with horizontal hands and butterfly like flapping palms and fingers. He had high fever for 3 days. Homeopathy and Metacine as medicine was a regular feature. Was not following any instruction. There were concerns if he is able to listen or not. He used to take fingers of others and point it to figures and items and used to ask others to say what is the item viz. statue of some hindu god, or tiger, lion, sheep, monkey, bear. If you say a wrong name, used to get annoyed. If one calls him by his name or otherwise was not responding. Never used to look into the eyes. Above indicates that the brain cell damage if it occurs due to high fever exceeding 104 and above, he might have such attach of high temperature during fever once or more times before during the age of 1 year or even earlier and up to two years8.0 October, 2018 started going to day care school. It was found that he was not mixing with children. He used to run with his hands horizontal and fingers moved as butterfly. Not able to follow instructions. Used to remain isolated, may be as he was not able to speak.9.0 On 12 Dec, 2018, he had high fever and he turned his eyes up and then his activities become further sluggish, so his parents went to doctor on 15 th dec, 2018 and he was diagnosed with Autism, due to the observations viz. i) not mixing with children. ii) running with his hands horizontal and fingers moving as butterfly iii) Not able to follow instructions. iv) no eye contact, v) not speaking vi) banging his head on the rear side of the pram cloth.10.0 Every week one hour treatment of occupational therapy( whistle blowing, soft ball pressing, blowing of bubbles, passing through cloth tunnel, clay mounding; animal, number, vehicles, birds, and numbers puzzles ( inserting the blocks of these figures in appropriate spaces) climbing rope ladder and speech therapy started immediately from 15 th Dec,2018.
