An Introduction To Autism

 


Visitors: 169

Autism is classified as a disorder in the mental development of a person. Manifestation of this disorder includes abnormality in social interaction, difficulty in communicating with other people, problems with patterns of interests as well as patterns of behavior.

Doctors have never been able to determine the actual cause of autism, but many believe that the disorder is triggered by the environment. Although there has been much debate regarding the actual effects of the environment, researchers have been able to successfully pinpoint at least seven major genes found in people diagnosed with the disorder.

Many believe that autism is not really a psychological condition. To determine the extent of the problem, a person would have to be subjected to a complete physical and neurological evaluation to diagnose the problem. Recent studies suggest that autism may not just be a single condition, but a combination of several conditions that actually have the same symptoms as autism.

Medical researches have developed several treatments to help improve the quality of life of children and adults with autism. Though medications have shown encouraging results in certain cases, many of the people who actually suffer from this condition do not want such a condition to be treated, and believe that autism is a part of their being. Researchers also believe that a complete cure is not feasible, given the current findings and technologies.

Even though treatments for autistic patients are met with skepticism, many professional pediatricians try to detect early signs of the condition to initiate treatment.

Children who are not educated on how to handle their condition will live a challenging life. They do not act the same way as other children because they have trouble understanding how other people feel. Facial expressions are a mystery to them. Their inability to understand the people around them will make learning in school very stressful for them.
