“Autism is not just one disorder, but a spectrum of closely related disorders with a shared core of symptoms” (Help guide 2013). Though it may vary in each person, autism effects the emotional, empathy, communication, flexible behavior and social skills. Autism also varies on the level of disability from one person to another, one child may show severe signs while the other you barely notice have this disorder. Sign and symptoms of autism are often ignored and passed off as a slight delay, and believe the child will grow out of it. When a child is seeming to lack socialization skills, not able to communicate, or show strange repetitive behavior continuously; the child should be tested.
There is also strong evidence of the Fragile X Syndrome as being extremely associated with infantile autism. Also, a nearly four to one ratio of autistic boys to girls points to a sex-linked inheritance. It is the convention that genetic predisposition at least, is evident in many cases. Siblings are 50 to 100 times as likely to illustrate autistic symptoms than non-sibling relatives. The search for the genetic marker, or markers, as the case may be, is fast and furious at present.
Many children are being diagnosed with autism, and in fact they are more often misdiagnosed. This is due to the fact that there are many mental disorders that have symptoms are very similar to autism, so therefore they are getting the wrong treatment for the illness. Autism is most difficult mental condition for doctor to diagnose a child with. In the first part of the article, Vahabzadeh works on establishing his ethos as a child psychiatrist.By having the difficult task of informing and explaining to a patient that their child is autistic. There are many questions surrounding autism.
Many people may not even know that Autism is there. They blame the child for what it cause him or her to do. This is Autism and it do as it please. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a general term for a group of complex disorders of brain development. They can be categorized, in many ways, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
Also incorporates how a child with Autisms sensory is affected. In addition to auditory comprehension differences, individuals with autism frequently show atypical responses to audiovisual speech, suggesting a multisensory contribution to these communicative differences from their typically developing peers (Ryan A. Stevenson 2013). This article helps to understand that there are other forms of communication for a non-verbal Autistic child to learn and use, but also makes the readers aware of some hurdles and complications that come along with being
In my paper I will be talking about the impact autism disorder has and the affects a child’s development in, physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional domains. I will be explaining the cause of this disorder along with the behaviors a child with autism has and the symptoms that are known for this disorder. Autism is a developmental disorder in the brain that makes it difficult to process information. For instance, children with autism have “different areas of the brain that fail to work together” (WebMD, 2014, p.1), which results in delays in language, trouble communicating, and have strange or unusual behaviors.Autism is usually recognized before the age of 3, when the child lacks any development or when the child shows symptoms, which will be explained later on in the paper. Causes of autism are still not found, although “scientists believe that genes and environmental factors…there’s also a 30% chance of a child developing autism if a sibling has it” (kidshealth, 2014, p.2).
Autism is a brain disorder that influences the way the brain uses and transmits information. Studies have found abnormalities in several parts of the brain that almost certainly occurred during fetal development. The problem may be centered in the parts of the brain responsible for processing language and information from the senses. One with autism will have language problems, restricted interests and activities, as well as sensory and intellectual problems (Cohen, 1987).
One study involved collecting data on 943, 664 children under the age of 10 for the duration of 7 years, and it was found that 818 of them developed autism3.

Autistic children may struggle in their daily lives as “ASD causes difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues” (“What is Autism,2”).The disorder causes abnormalities that create uncomfortability such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances (“What is Autism,2”). ASD also has the ability to antagonize life. ASD will either positively affect someone’s life, or make it an
This inconsistency results in the child not being able to feel secure in the relationship (Boag, 2014). Children who are unable to develop secure relationships are taught that they cannot rely on people, and are therefore insecure in their interpersonal relationships. Cognitive theorists see personality disorders as developing from adaptive behaviors that they have formed that are considered over or underdeveloped in general society (Sampson, McCubbin, and Tyrer, 2006). In this theory people with BPD develop adaptive behaviors, often to inconsistent behaviors of parents (Reinecke & Ehrenreich, 2005). These adaptive behaviors are considered maladaptive, because they work to counteract the inconsistent behaviors of the caregiver, but do not work when the person tries to use them in their everyday life.
