Behavior training

Postby ExpatsParent » Sat, 17 Nov 2012 6:06 pm

I have a 5 yr who can use some help on social skill. He is great with English, very friendly but do not know how to communicate with others. In short, he does not want to listen and wants to things his own way.

Anyone any advise if there are coaching session that can help in Singapore?

Pavlov's Response works well. Singaporean are brought up from birth with it.

Try making eye contact with your son. Does he hold your gaze?

Try showing him pictures of faces showing different emotions, and ask him to describe what he thinks the people are feeling.

If he won't hold your gaze, and can't identify other peoples' emotions, then you should have him evaluated by a doctor. While it is possible that your son just needs more discipline at home, it is also possible that he might have some level of autism. If he does, then there are a lot of interventions that would help him.

Either way, it won't hurt to start giving him yoghurt to eat, or "pro-biotic" pills, on a daily basis too. There is evidence that one thing that is contributing to the increase in autism and certain other conditions nowadays is inflammation of the gut which can be helped with the good bacteria in yoghurt and pro-biotic pills.

Ah, good point. Some people said that autism can be detected when the kid is around 2-3 years old. Well, maybe another type of autism, like asperger.

Social Skills and Pro-Biotics

Hello,

I am a professional speech-language therapist. Helping families and children is what I do. Many of the children that I work with benefit from direct pragmatic language therapy to improve their social skills. I'd be happy to discuss this with you further.

There is a high concomitance of gastrointestinal issues for children with Austism Spectrum Disorders. ASD is in no way caused by GI problems. Pro-biotics may improve gut function, but it will have no impact on ASD.

I highly recommend super nanny method if your child has issues with taking instruction or behavior problem. But having said that, must make sure the child is not sick too.
