Name: Master Shiv.. | Diagnosis: ADHD with Autism traits | Evaluation Method: ATEC (Autism treatment evaluation checklist)
Dear Dr. Anish Vaknalli, this is regarding my nephew Shiv.... On 9th August 2011 we received the homeopathic medicine sent through you as per our order no.477. We started giving the medicine as suggested by you from 10th August 2011 onwards.
Shiv... has been attending ‘Play group’ at ‘Kid..’ since 4th July 2011. He enjoys going to school. He also has been getting ‘Behavioral Therapy’ from 26th June 2011. Since last few days we have observed that his vocabulary has increased. He repeats a new word as soon as he hears it or even repeats words, when asked to for eg. Zoo, Circus, Cake, Ice-Cream, Auto, Nal (tap), Joker, Kitchen, Lucknow, etc. Now he enjoys watching his surroundings and points out to cow, horse, scooter, rickshaw and other objects which he sees on the road or in a magazine or even on T.V. He recognizes alphabets and numbers. He picks up any magazine or newspaper and at random points out individual alphabets (A-Z) and also numbers ( 1-10). He takes interest in solving puzzles, recognizing pictures of fruits, animals, vegetables, recognizing colours and shapes.
He is now more obedient during ‘work-time’ both at home and during the ‘Behavioral Therapy’. However, since last one week he looks into the eyes of the ‘Behavioral Therapist’ or rather has a proper eye contact with her, when she asks him to repeat words after her. Of course, to make him look into her eyes she holds his chin and makes him listen to a sentence or a phrase, so that he can repeat the same. Now he tries to combine two or three words. Now he does not throw tantrums when asked to repeat a phrase or a sentence. When he is in a good mood he does recite full nursery rhymes - ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, ‘JohnyJohny Yes Papa’ and the song ‘ChandaHaiTu, MeraSurajHaiTu’. He continues to jump while watching ‘commercials’ as though ‘springs’ are attached to his feet. Now he can recognize his relatives and says their names MaaluDidi, Jijaji, ( Brother-in-law) Tauji (Uncle) Taayiji
( Aunty) Buaji, ( Aunty) Phuphaji, (Uncle) Chun-MunDidi. Now he has started enjoying his baths. He does not make fuss while taking medicines.
I look forward to your guidance in this matter. Kindly let us know as to when we should get in touch with you, after this.
