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 not a pin pointed cause of ASD, but it many researchers believe it has something to do with defected genes or incomplete development of the baby’s brain. (Proctor, Young- Adams 2013) If autism is caught when it in its very early stages it make a big difference and may help improve cognitive and social skills. More test are being added to the testing of the autism diagnostic schedule to ideally detect the disorder at around eighteen months.

When drawing a visual diagram it helps autistic children to see what is being explained and what is being asked to do.

The cause of autism has not yet been fully determined, but it is not caused by vaccines; it is usually caused by genetics, metabolic or neurological factors, or lastly problems that occurred during birth. nces are. But the main theory that many people think causes autism is vaccines.

There is no cure for Autism, but with rigorous treatment, children with the disorder can have different lives, if management was not available. Autism spectrum disorders fit in to an umbrella classification of five childhood-onset conditions known as pervasive developmental disorders. Most people think of autism spectrum disorders as Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Childhood disintegrative disorder and Rett Syndrome are the other pervasive developmental disorders that are not commonly thought of. Because both are extremely rare genetic diseases, they are usually considered to be separate medical conditions that don't truly belong on the autism spectrum.
Extreme withdrawal from social situations is often apparent. This behavior is often documented and referred to by the term ‘self-isolation’. It will be discussed at a later time how professionals work with autistic children in the treatment of this particular behavior along with the treatment of other clinical evidence recognized in autistic children. Development in language skills is often times absent in an autistic child. Although som... ... middle of paper ... ...Doctors, scientists and researchers have studied family genetics, damage to genes during prenatal development and they have also taken a closer look at disorders related to autism.
Autism is a mental disorder that can come physical problems such as an inability to interact and communicate with others and potential speech impediments; children diagnoses with Autism, however, can lead successful and fulfilling lives with proper guidance, support, and compassion. Autism can sometimes be described as Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD, just another fancy word for Autism, which are both general terms for complex disorders during brain development (Autism speaks). The disorders can vary between social interactions, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors (Autism speaks). Autism appears to develop early in brain development and the main symptoms of Autism tend to happen between 2 and 3 years old (Autism speaks). Children with Autism may fail to answer to their name and often avoid eye contact with other people.
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.
These include everything from genetic markers to metabolic diseases. A few of these dysfunction’s, be they associated or causative, are discussed in this essay. At present, physicians can base their early diagnoses only on the emotional and physical symptoms present in nearly 82% of all autistic children. However, the term "autism" as a disease should not be used to describe one disorder characterized by a certain core deficit, but rather should be considered an umbrella term to be used to describe a variety of associated disorders. The early diagnosis of autistic disorders in infants is crucial for the success of treatment programs that have proven somewhat effective in recent years.
They look at the child’s behavior to make a diagnosis” (www.cdc.gov). Some parents are in denial with this disease and will not get the early intervention that could help. We need to educate as much as possible about autism. Autism is a lifelong condition and with early detection, intervention and therapy. This can help to increase skills and abilities to help children grow and reduce the symptoms cause by this
Other sings of a genetic link to autism include an increased occurrence of chromosomal abnormalities, brain deficiencies, and language difficulties, which seems to be prevalent in families of autistic children. The combinations of genetic factors are also probably tied to environmental factors, like exposure to toxins and metals. What causes an individual to have ASD, is not yet known. However, extensive research is being done to try to find out more. At this point it is believed to result from changes in brain development which may be caused by a range of factors such as; environmental and genetic factors.
