Have you ever heard of the term ASD? What are your thoughts when you see a child in public who is misbehaving? Well the two of these questions might be linked together. ASD is better known as autism spectrum disorder which is a disorder of the development in the brain according to Autism Speaks Inc. (2015). Due to this developmental issue children can be thought of as being bad or unruly, but in reality they cannot help it.
Therefore, it can be hypothesized that one cause of Autism is a dysfunctional mirror-neuron system, given that the presumed functions of these class of neurons – such as empathy, intention-reading, mimicry, pretend play, and language learning- are deficient in autism. Studying the unexpected relationship between mirror neurons and autism is vital because this may have implications for the development of early behavioral interventions aimed at training basic mechanisms supported by the mirror-neuron system, rather than attempting to correct higher levels of complex behaviors. Mirror neurons are a newly discovered, specific class of ner... ... middle of paper ... ...m. This many have implications for the development of early behavioral interventions aimed at triaging basic mechanisms supported by the mirror-neuron system, rather than correcting more complex behaviors.

Some people don't wan't to be the friends with the autistic people , because of their difficulty with language. According to the article "Autism" from the "New Book Of Knowledge " the author states that , "Difficulties with language include delays speaking in sentences and confusion of pronouns , such as : "me" and "I".

What if autistic kids have genius brains, but cannot communicate it? I would hope for the future that we can somehow hook something up to autistic people’s brain and have them communicate their thoughts to us. Maybe we will discover something incredible and allow the person to finally communicate in some way.
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.

Those kids who find it annoying will most likely act in an immature and hurtful way in attempt to let the autistic child know they are bothering them. “Children with autism don’t know how to tell “social lies”. The autistic child might come right out and say I don’t like you a...
The consequences children withstood from the use of experimental medications was more negative than it was positive. First things first, there is something that needs to be understood. Autism is a general term for a group of complex disorders of brain development characterized in varying degrees by social interaction, verbal / nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors (routines). Whereas, Fragile-X Syndrome is an inherited intellectual disability caused by a change or mutation on the FMRI gene on the X chromosome. A concern amongst many health specialists was what seemed very simple to them; if the conditions the children had are different, then it would make a difference on what medication they should take would it not?
("Autism Speaks")("Web MD") On the website autism speaks, “Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). The other pervasive developmental disorders are PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified), Asperger's Syndrome, Rett Syndrome and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder. Many parents and professionals refer to this group as Autism Spectrum Disorders.” They also said that “Asperger’s syndrome is a developmental disorder that makes it very hard to interact with other people.” Your toddler may notice that it is a challenge to make acquaintances because he or she is socially gawky. Many citizens with Asperger’s Syndrome may possess some traits of autism. Asperger’s syndrome is an enduring condition, but symptoms do seem to get better over time.
Much evidence reveals the benefits of integrating autistic students, yet arguments against unification continue to arise. The claim that autistic students impede upon the progress of the rest of the classroom remains one of the largest arguments against classroom integration to this day. Some observations note that autistic students can be prone to disrupting the classroom environment, wasting valuable class time and commandeering the attention of the teacher. Many attempt to blame the idiosyncratic social skills that accompany autism for these breakouts, but the real problem is that typical classroom environments disfavor students who have autism. Some educators hold the false belief that autistic children will never learn and are choosing to misbehave (Romagnoli 8).
I know autism when I see it. For those not familiar with autism, Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, defines autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees (hence, a “Spectrum” that includes both low- and high-functioning individuals), by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
