Autism Intervention

My name is Maureen Onochie. I have Bachelors degrees in special education and masters in psychology. I teach autism in the Dallas Independent School District for more than 17 years. I obtain a certificate from autism circle in evidence based intervention.

Evidence based intervention has helped many children with autism improve and manage behaviors. Early intervention makes a big difference.

I will love to help your child reach his/her individual goal.

Early signs of Autism:

Baby or toddler doesn't:

  • Make eye contact, such as looking at you when being fed or smiling when being smiled at.
  • Respond to his or her name, or to the sound of a familiar voice.
  • Follow objects visually or follow your gesture when you point things out.
  • Point or wave goodbye, or use other gestures to communicate.

What Parent Should Do Immediately You Notice Something Wrong with Your Baby:

Seek help. Don’t wait to see if your child will catch up later or outgrow the problem.

Don’t even wait for an official diagnosis. The earlier children with autism spectrum disorder get help, the greater their chance of treatment success.

Early intervention is the most effective way to speed up your child’s development and reduce the symptoms of autism over the lifespan.

What is Autism:

Autism is not a single disorder, but a spectrum of closely related disorders with a shared core of symptoms.

Autism in infancy and early childhood, causing delays in many basic areas of development, such as learning to talk, play, and interact with others.

The signs and symptoms of autism vary widely, as do its effects. Some children with autism have only mild impairments, while others have more obstacles. However, every child on the autism spectrum has problems, at least to some degree, in the following three areas:

.  Communicating verbally and non-verbally

  • Relating to others and the world around them
  • Thinking and behaving flexibly
