There are a lot thing this to why it exists. They include a change of a misdiagnosis, the chances of which some children becoming an adult form different forms of Autism than what they had when they was a child. Sometimes with a Autism child they can grow out the Autism mind set and can no longer meet the criteria of being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Some children who have no longer met the criteria of being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder are later diagnosed with attention deficit. Children that are diagnosed with Autism have their own disabilities and strengths.
A few problems that can arise from having comorbid conditions are that the child can obtain cognitive difficulties and developmental delays. Before doctors really look into the child having comorbid conditions, they will think that the child is suffering from autism disorder (McDonell & McClellan). In children with EOS, substance abuse can become a massive problem as they get older. One of the biggest abuses would be nicotine (NIMH, 2007). A child with schizophrenia definitely leads a completely different life then a child without this disorder.
Delusions and hallucinations are the most commonly known symptoms of schizophrenia. Most people have a basic idea of what schizophrenia is but few people look into early onset, or childhood, schizophrenia. Childhood schizophrenia is rare; only 1 in 100 people living with this disorder developed it during their childhood years. This mental disorder is defined as a rare and severe form of the known psychotic disorder, schizophrenia, which starts in children who are younger than thirteen and most often older than seven. It is essentially the same as adult schizophrenia; however it is harder to diagnosis in children (American Psychiatric Association, 2013).
“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.

The small differences in mercury exposure and detoxification ability drive huge differences in the brain development of small autistic children as compared to normal children. Children less than 5 years old with autism might repeat actions over and over again, and they might have trouble if family routines change. But he normal children of the same age don’t have such problems. References Fisher, James T. "CHARLIE'S WORLD : A family battles autism."

As someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder grows from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, they will find themselves facing a number of social challenges. It is crucial to understand that all individuals with autism are different. They are unique in their own way, and not one is the same.
Forward This essay discusses an important view concerning the differential diagnosis of infantile autism. As you will see, the symptomology common to autistic infants mimics that of severely retarded children in the early months of life. In addition, the identification of autism as a "disease" in infants is impeded by the lack of biological evidence to support such a diagnosis. Autism has, in multiple studies, been related to a multitude of organic dysfunction’s. These include everything from genetic markers to metabolic diseases.
Childhood Schizophrenia happens. Although this chronic brain disorder is more prevalent in adults, occurrences of hallucinations have been reported in children as young as 5 years of age. Still, parents need not panic, as pediatric schizophrenia only develops in about 1 in 40,000 children. As a parent if you suspect something is mighty wrong, it usually is. Most especially if schizophrenia 'runs in the family', you should get familiar with the symptoms of early onset Schizophrenia.
Whether it be a child or an adult, those with autism have a very hard time communicating and maintaining relationships with others people. For children with Autism, their brains will always process information differently than children’ brains who are without the Autism Spectrum Disorder. According to reports made by the American Psychological Association, the Autism Spectrum Disorder is the utmost severe developmental disability for an individual to carry. Autism Spectrum Disorder generally shows it’s first signs in a child before the child even reaches the age of three and the signs will persist and increase throughout his/her lifespan. Some children with autism will either speak very little or not at all.
The Everchanging Diagnosis of Autism Throughout the years the diagnosis of autism has changed dramatically. Once, it was mistakenly diagnosed as childhood schizophrenia. Now that much more extensive research has been done, researchers have found distinct characteristics that are typical of autistic individuals. It is most often characterized by difficulty in the child's ability to respond to people, events, and objects. Responses to sensations of light, sound, and feeling may be exaggerated.
