Autistic Disorder in Children

Autism is a lifelong disorder, with no cure which affects 1 in 100 people mainly males when being compared to females. However, there is no cure with early intervention there is a greater chance at making a difference at a child’s development.

Autism is part of a spectrum that is often referred to as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Those suffering from Autism are commonly known having areas of difficulties in two areas generally referred to as ‘dyad of impairments’

  • Social and communication, these include difficulty with body language and verbal communication, reciprocating conversations, reciprocating emotions and social situations as well as managing structures throughout the day.
  • Thought flexibility, which may include difficulty with hyper, or hypo- sensitivity input, routines, repetitive behaviours and rituals.

The best forms of treatment to help provide assistance for the child with autism is to begin with providing structure and safety in the household environment. A few ideas which may help to with this plan may be keeping a schedule as children with autism tend to do best when they have a highly structured routine. Although this has to be set with consistency with balance and support from family and friends, as well as change should try to be avoided or kept to a minimum. Inclusively, good behaviour should go rewarded. Positive reinforcements can go a long way with children with autism, praising a child for a good deed reinforces the idea of repetition on continuation on doing the good deed.
