Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Mostly new parents don’t have idea what is the meaning of Autism and what it is all about until they experience the presence of it in their family. It is somehow be better to prepared or educate them in case they have encounter this disorder themselves. Early prevention and diagnosis are really important.
Autism is a Medical Disorder with neurobiological basis, most likely due to unusual connection within a Child’s brain. Autism is essentially disorder of relating and communicating. It is a developmental disorder-which means that the skills required for these interactions are not achieved when expected. Psychologist and therapist were looking for some answers on how to prevent Autism and cure it completely.
Unfortunately, nobody out there seems to find way to vanish and destroy it what ever source the ASD came from. There are some children who would take eighteen to twenty four months and it seems they have normal developmental growth. This normal development maybe followed when they lose communication and interaction skills and develop symptoms in the all core areas of ASD.
Autism or Kenner’s Syndrome
Autism is a neurological disorder that features marked impairment in social interaction and communication, as well as restricted, repetitive pattern of behavior, activities or interest. It is often, but not always, accompanied by some degree of mental retardation. Autistic disorder is what most people think as autism, and it is called classical autism or Kenner’s Syndrome. Autism is often referred to as a “Spectrum Disorder”, anybody who has autism can be ranged from mild to severe condition. The usual and most common indicator to an autism diagnosis is when a child losses his ability and lack of interest in relating to people.
The diagnosis for a child who has Autism disorder would not be possible until the child reach the age three, because he has some language skills. The diagnosis would only be started as long as his delay in social communication, learning issues, sensory-motor abilities are recognized. If the child has the mentioned disorder his abilities and communicate with others would be affected.
Language problem and repetitive behavior
A child with ASD could have serious language problem but it can differ in every child. A child with ASD could have more or greater difficulty with language and he doesn’t process it accurately or understand . He may be receiving messages but what he does or say would not be making sense.
A child with autism has experiencing repetitive behavior. Unlike other child of his age who would explore himself to other toys around him .Variety of interest would not be possible to a child with ASD. He may over focus on certain toy or things that would be an early sign of repetitive behavior.
A child with ASD may have repetitive pattern. He may still be liked to play the same toy or things even when he grows up and became toddler. Even in watching TV or going other places he still focusing to find the same thing. A child with ASD can also have some unusual sensory response. For example, He may not answer when somebody call him and get no response.
He seems to be unaware of somebody calling his name but when the garage door opens, he is the first to jump and run towards the door and see who did arrive. He may have hearing every words you said to him but when you urge him to response he is repeating exactly the words you said. He may be eager to respond when you ask him to get something but when he comes back he is bringing not the thing you expected or it seems that he is loss in following instruction.
There are a lots of information we can get about sensory issues of an autistic child like Auditory (hearing) which we discussed earlier, also visual, touch (tactile), taste, smell and even the motor skills of an autism child. Some of these helpful information can be acquired and offered help link as to how to improve the sensory-motor response of an ASD child.
However, we are still hoping that someday there would be a time that this developmental problem would be part of the past and never again destroy our children’s future. Nowadays, the number of children affected by autism is staggering. Overwhelming questions from the people as to when can we stop autism were heard.
But as for the parents out there we all know that it is hard to accept it and most of the time it is frustrating to think about it. But we really have to walk through this road and do it hand in hand with our children.
