Autism & Testing 1-2-3…

This is from our local Autism Speaks’ Facebook page:
***Please note that the Care Mobile will also be at the Autism Speaks SWFL Walk Now for Autism on November 7 at Estero Community Park*****

The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, in partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida, will offer free monthly autism spectrum disorder screening for toddlers 18 months to 36 months of age.

The first screening will be held Nov. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, located in the Cape Coral Hospital parking lot. Additional screenings will be conducted monthly at different locations across Lee County.

It is estimated that one in every 150 children is diagnosed with some form of ASD, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.

That’s why parents are encouraged to bring their toddlers to the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile for a free screening. Clinicians will use the M-CHAT, with Denver Developmental Screening Tool to assess the toddlers. The screening is not intended to make a definitive ASD diagnosis, but rather to determine whether your child may be at risk and needs further evaluation.

Medical consultants for the project stress that an early diagnosis can make a vast difference for toddlers and their families. They say early intensive behavioral intervention, or EIBI, can make an immense difference not just in the development of the child, but in their families as well.

The ASD screening is conducted by the Neurosciences Center at TCH, under the guidance of pediatric neurologist Jose Colon, MD, MPH, and pediatric psychiatrist Marianne Krouk, DO. The onsite screenings will be administered by an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, who has extensive training and experience in typical child development and developmental disorders.

A physician referral is not required. To schedule a screening, please call 239-985-3608.”

If you have any concerns, I’d make an appointment. For those who think that a pediatrician would have mentioned something during the annual checkup, I wouldn’t put all of my trust in that, though it is getting better. Remember, getting clarification and help for you and your child, is the best thing for your kid and their future, and the earlier, the better.

Just wanted to share….Hope this helps someone…

Clevergirl.etsy.com packaging....

Clevergirl.etsy.com packaging...

(Thanks BigHugeLabs.com for the mosaic….Check them out! Some fun photo tools!)

Voila!  My 2008 packaging..

Clockwise from upper left:

Winter 2008 gift wrap, boxes (designed and printed in-house…Every printing changes a little bit-sometimes the design, sometimes the color), my signature any-occasion gift wrap, all packed up and ready for a padded envelope…Colors do vary!  I have to keep it interesting!  I do color code and provide a key for orders with multiple treasures, that way you aren’t shredding the paper and finding yourself hunting for wrapping paper when you are supposed to be heading out the door….

Purchases from my Etsy shop ship gift-wrapped… In the middle of November I will start shipping all packages with their treasures wrapped in my Winter 2008 style, until January 1st.  If you would like Winter 2008 wrapping before then, please let me know in the notes to seller area…. If you would like my non-winter wrapping during that time, please let me know…

I cannot express how much fun I have wrapping treasures and getting them ready for shipping!

Etsy and BUST!
