Michelle Turner of Movement Lesson is the expert when it comes to shot regression. After her son Graham received a vaccine at the age of 13 months, he immediately went from a child developmentally on track, to years of delays in speech, sight and muscle tone. Here are the key signs of what she says parents must look for:
5 Key Signs of Regression from Vaccines
What parents should look for that their child may be at risk for a potential problem…
1. Non-responsive - A healthy child starts to look if you say 'Where's Daddy? Where's the ball?" Suddenly you find yourself repeating it or saying it louder. Needing to touch or prompt your child to get their attention.
2. Staring - Babies and toddlers work the room. You don't loose a child into a good TV show until they're a few years older. If they seem like they're zoning out or loosing track of what they are doing or obsessing over one item for a length of time.
3. Sensory & Touch - Babies and toddlers like to explore there environment. If they once enjoyed food & getting messy now the suddenly have fear of smells, messes, touch and/or sounds.
4. Fear - Does your child suddenly have fears? Does the child suddenly cling to a parent or have separation anxiety? Lost a sense of calm or peace that they previously had?
5. Slouching - babies and toddlers with a healthy nervous system don't slouch. Your child might suddenly seem heavy to pick up or carry around. They're not 'laid back' or easy going.
Young children should be curious about the world around them. The trauma from vaccine reaction can be so severe to a child’s central nervous system that without intervention can lead to diagnoses of autism and developmental delay. Michelle M.
