Baby H, 2.10 yrs female was brought for consultation in May 2013. She was already diagnosed as having mild ASD (autism spectrum disorder) by a developmental paediatrician.
Following are the details of the case.
Baby was born out of a full term C section as her weight was 3.6 kg and labour pains were poor. She cried immediately after birth. Apart from social mile stones and speech, which did not develop age appropriate, all other mile stones were normal like. Head holding at 3 months, Crawling at 5-6 months, teething at 8 months and sitting/walking all before 12 months.
Babbling started at 4 month, bisyllabus at 1.6 yrs but only few words and still there is no meaningful speech. She identifies familiar people but not in context of relation. She speaks only 3 words mama, papa, and kaka but not in real context. She communicates non verbally and indicates her needs with gestures. Full time she is babbling and words are unclear. She indicates her toilet needs and has good control over bowel bladder. Mother reported that she will never go to outside toilets and can control.
Social smile, responding to name, understanding simple instruction and following command is occasional. Eye contact is fleeting. She does not mix with children and plays alone. She is always active, restless and has difficulty remaining seated. She has Craze for small bottles and will collect them all the time. She is sensitive to loud noise and closes her ear on hearing sound of a band and will scream. She has mild fear of dark, doctors, injections, At present she goes to play group.

CARS-33 (Childhood autism rating scale)—mild to moderate autism

She was also advised occupational therapy and speech therapy. At native place no therapy was available and mother used to teach her at home only. I have written this in bold because without any proper therapy, she showed miraculous results with only homoeopathy.

After this they became irregular and medicine was going irregularly. From Dec 2014 to Dec 2015 – treatment was going irregularly.
2018 – She is progressing well and doing well in the school. She is in 3rd std. In this case parents are the sole therapists and with their assistance the results are miraculous with homeopathy.
I HAVE GIVEN THIS CASE IN DETAIL WITH DETAILED FOLLOW UP TO STRESS ON THE FACT THAT NO SHORT CUTS CAN GIVE LONG TERM FRUITFUL RESULTS. FOLLOWING FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES of homeopathy, PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE ARE THE KEY TO MIRACLES IN HOMEOPATHY.
