What is Autism?
Autism is a developmental disorder affecting children from birth or the early months of life. For many years autism was rare occurring in just five to ten children per 10,000 live births.
Most autistic children are perfectly normal in appearance, but spend their time engaged in puzzling and disturbing behaviors which are markedly different from those of typical children. Less severe cases may be diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) or with Asperger’s Syndrome (usually children have normal speech, but they have many “autistic” social and behavioral problems).
We can watch the signs of autism early as possible. If we caught early, the chances of minimizing the effects of autism are dramatically reduced.
Usually child with autism like to turning around or the child has no responsiveness to external stimuli.
If our child is autistic, as parents we must accept it first. Because accept is the first and important step to help our child. After that we can choose what is best treatment and therapy for our child.
Remember EARLY diagnosis and treatments of autism are important for children to achieve their full potential.
