We started Monkey on folic acid therapy in August of last year. I can’t believe I didn’t mention this at the time, lol. Anyway, the literature all says that it takes a minimum of 4 months for the effects to show up, if any, and we’re well past that mark. In fact, the 4 month mark was in early December.
I would really encourage other families to consider this. We’ve had no side effects at all and we just so happen to have witnessed a marked increase in Monkey’s ability to attend and communicate starting right around the 4 month mark. Part of this could be explained by the increased sensory OT he’s receiving at school but he maintains on weekends and during school vacations when he’s not getting any OT so I don’t think the extra OT can account for all of the improvements.
