Question?: Autism Signs And Symptoms

John asks…

How many people have children with Autism?

Any type of autism on the spectrum. This is for a project at school. Just tell me about your experiences with Autistic (or Asperger’s) Children

admin answers:

1 in 88 children have autism (1 in 54 boys) 3/4 of children with autism are boys, the fourth is a girl. “classic” or “full blown autism” can be directed by the age of 2, warning signs are lack of eye contact, little or no speech, and a lack of other communication skills.

Asperger’s syndrome is a “high functioning” form of autism- meaning it shares the same basis of lacking communication skills with classic autism, but symptoms are far more severe.

I am a teen with asperger’s syndrome, and my main symptoms are severe anxiety, not knowing what to say in a conversation, having obsessions or fixations on things like trains, air planes, & computers, and no eye contact (this is due to anxiety). Most kids with mild autism also have other learning disabilities, like ADHD.

There is also a thing a lot of autistic people do called “stimming” It means self stimulation. You might see autistic kids doing things like rocking back and forth (it’s soothing) and flapping their hands, (I do this when excited).

One important thing to know about autistic individuals often are very proud to have autism, even though it is viewed by others as a disability. THERE IS NO CURE. But certain therapies DO help, like physical therapy, talk therapy, and social skills help.

THIS SHOULD JUST ABOUT SUM UP YOUR PROJECT!

Question?: Treatment For Autism In India

Robert asks…

What are the symptoms of Basil Cell Carcinoma?

I have a bump on my nose that my doctor thinks is growing and she says it might be basil cell carcinoma. I am looking for a dermatologist to consult with but am wondering if anyone out there knows about these things and also have you ever heard of the morhs (? spelling) treatment? Thank you for any help.

admin answers:

Symptoms of Basal Cell Carcinoma
The five most typical characteristics of basal cell carcinoma are quite different from each other. Frequently, two or more features are present in one tumor. In addition, basal cell carcinoma sometimes resembles non-cancerous skin conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema. Only a trained physician, usually a dermatologist, can diagnose this cancer.
It is advisable to learn the signs of basal cell carcinoma and examine the body regularly, as often as once a month, if at high risk. A full-length mirror and a hand-held mirror can be very useful for the less visible parts of the body. The five warning signs of basal cell carcinoma are:
•An open sore that bleeds, oozes or crusts, and remains open for three or more weeks. A persistent, non-healing sore is a very common early manifestation.
•A reddish patch or an irritated area, frequently occurring on the chest, shoulders, arms or legs. Sometimes the patch crusts. It may also itch or hurt. At other times, it persists with no noticeable discomfort.
•A smooth growth with an elevated, rolled border and an indentation in the center. As the growth slowly enlarges, tiny blood vessels may develop on the surface.
•A shiny bump (or nodule) that is pearly or translucent and is often pink, red or white. The bump can also be tan, black or brown, especially in dark-haired people, and can be confused with a mole.
•A scar-like area (white, yellow, or waxy in appearance) which often has poorly defined borders. The skin itself appears shiny or taut. Although a less frequent sign, it can indicate the presence of an aggressive tumor.

Question?: Autism Signs In Infants

James asks…

What is the earliest a baby will exhibit signs of retardation or autism?

He’s only a week old, and his pediatrician says everything checks out fine.
But he sometimes exhibits some of the same hand and head movements of children who are deemed mentally retarded or severely autistic.
Now, it may be that he’s just “doing what babies do,” and those movements may look similar because those older children simply don’t move past that “infant-like” stage of development, so I’m hoping I’m just being paranoid.
But I’m wondering if anyone might know of some warning signs.
Thank you.

admin answers:

A lot of the uncontrolled movements of a newborn resemble the self-stimulating that many people with autism do. It is completely normal, and nothing to worry about. If your child fails to meet milestones and is still exhibiting those same behaviors a year or two from now, that is when you need to discuss it w/ your doctor.

Detecting Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorders can often be reliably detected by the age of 3 years, and in some cases as early as 18 months. Studies suggest that many children eventually may be accurately identified by the age of 1 year or even younger. The appearance of any of the warning signs of ASD is reason to have a child evaluated by a professional specializing in these disorders.

Parents are usually the first to notice unusual behavior in their child. In some cases, the baby seemed “different” from birth, unresponsive to people or focusing intently on one item for long periods of time. The first sign of an ASD can also appear in children who seem to have been developing normally. When an engaging, babbling toddler suddenly becomes silent, withdrawn, self-abusive, or indifferent to social overtures, something is wrong.

Research has shown that parents are usually correct about noticing developmental problems, although they may not realize the specific nature or degree of the problem.

The Many Signs of Autism

If you are the parent of a newborn or young child and are worried about them being autistic, you will be interested in knowing that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have concluded that as many as one child in every 100 may be suffering with Autism. It is recommended that you begin observing your child as early as possible. Research has proven that the earlier a child is professionally diagnosed with the disorder, the easier it will be to treat the disorder and have the prognosis for a good outcome.

So what are the signs of Autism that you should be looking for? According to the NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health), the following are the warning signs of the disorder that you should be looking for in order to determine the possibility of your child being affected:

– They are not babbling, making meaningful gestures, or pointing by the time they are a year old
– They do not interact joyfully with others or smile
– They do not respond to their name when called
– They do not seem to know or understand how to play with their toys
– They exhibit poor eye contact
– They get attached to one specific object or toy
– They haven’t combined two words by the time they are 2 years old
– They haven’t spoken one word by the time they have reached 16 months of age
– They line up objects or their toys
– They lose acquired language or social skills
– They oftentimes appear to be hearing impaired or ignoring you

Granted, there could be a number of other explanations besides Autism for any of the above behaviors. For instance, the fact that a child spends time lining up objects or toys or shows a significant attachment to a particular object or toy is not a definitive sign of the disorder being present. Conversely, a child with excellent language skills could still be diagnosed with Autism. In fact, it is known that children have extraordinary language and reading skills despite the fact that they have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Currently, there are other possible indicators of the disorder which is typically diagnosed by a process of interviewing the parents about the child and observing the child at the same time. However, a number of researchers have found several correlations between Autism and certain physical issues. In some instances, signs of Autism could be apparent could be present at birth.

The most important thing to remember is that observation of one’s child is critical. If you are suspicious of your child being affected with the disorder and you are seeing what you feel are signs of Autism, consult your child’s pediatrician or family physician immediately. Remember that the best course of action is to have the child diagnosed as early in life as possible. The sooner the child is diagnosed, the sooner they can start treatment and possibly witness a better outcome.

Knowledge About Early Signs of Autism

Whether you’re new parents that have just had their first child or you have recently added one more sibling to the family group, at some point in time, being concerned about Autism may have crossed your mind. Roughly one out of every 150 infants that are born today is autistic, so it is imperative that the disorder be detected early in order to treat it properly. If you are unfamiliar with the disorder, it is important to educate yourself about it and learn about the early signs of Autism.

First and foremost, Autism is a neural development disorder that is characterized by the impairment of communication, language skills, and social interaction as well as repetitive or restricted behavior patterns. In most cases, these different characteristics appear by the time the child has reached three years of age. Autism affects how the brain processes information by altering the way that the nerve cells connect with and organize the synapses.

It is one of three different types of Autism disorders found on what is referred to as the Autism spectrum. The other two are Asperger’s Syndrome where cognitive development and language skills are lacking and PDD-NOS or Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified. This disorder is usually diagnosed should the criteria involved in the diagnosis for either Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome not be met.

What to look for

What you want to remember above everything else when you are concerned about the possibility of your infant being autistic is that recognizing the early signs of Autism may be the difference between diagnosing the disorder properly and missing it completely. The earlier the disorder is diagnosed, the sooner you can start treatment and increase your chances of having a better outcome for both you and your child.

Early detection of Autism is critical so the sooner you educate yourself about the warning signs, the better. Here are some basic suggestions for recognizing the early signs of the disorder based on what the child should have accomplished by a certain time in their early development:

o By the time your child is 6 months old, they should be smiling whenever they are delighted or feel joy for one reason or another.

o Mimicking facial expressions, vocal intonations, and words should be evident by the time your child is 10 months old.

o Once the child has reached two years of age, they should be talking and should have at least several words in their ever-growing vocabulary.

Remember that the child may only exhibit one of the early signs of Autism. Even if all the symptoms are not being exhibited, your child may still be diagnosed as autistic. One way or the other, you should take your child to their pediatrician to determine if further testing for the disorder may be necessary. Diagnosing the disorder as early as possible in the child’s development is critical and could mean treating it sooner that you can prevent complications and avoid more additional negative consequences.

Facts About Symptoms of Autism

The neural development disorder that are characterized by impaired communication, repetitive and restrictive behavior, and social interaction is known as Autism. Normally the symptoms of Autism or the disorder’s warning signs begin before the child has reached three years of age. The disorder affects the processing of information in the brain because it changes how a person’s nerve cells and their synapses connect with one another and then organize themselves. Unfortunately, the way in which this occurs is not understood.

In the Autism Spectrum, Autism is one of the three disorders that it covers. Asperger’s Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) are the other two that are components of the spectrum. PDD-NOS is typically diagnosed when the characteristics of Asperger’s Syndrome or Autism are not present. Although the genetics involved in Autism are extremely complex in nature, it isn’t clear as to whether or not Autism Spectrum Disorders are rare mutations or rare combinations of genetic variations.

In rare occurrences, the symptoms of Autism are strongly related to genetic agents that are responsible for birth defects. Additionally, there are numerous controversies that surround environmental issues including childhood vaccines, heavy metals, and pesticides. Interestingly enough, the hypothesis regarding the vaccine issue is biologically implausible and lacks any psychological or scientific evidence. In recent reports published by the CDC, they estimate that roughly 1 out of every 100 children have the symptoms of Autism.

Since the 1980’s when Autism became a common concern of the medical and psychological communities, the increase in the number of diagnoses of the disorder have increased exponentially. Naturally, this is due in part to changes and updates where current diagnostic practices are concerned. However, whether or not it can be considered prevalent in US society is the source of numerous debates. What is known for sure is that parents typically notice the symptoms of Autism within the first two years of the child’s life.

The symptoms of Autism will vary greatly from one individual to the next. However, there are specific core symptoms that every individual who is suffering with autism have in common. These include:

Limited interests in normal activities or the way in which they play – a need for an established routine, an unusual focus on certain objects or toys, and the preoccupation of specific topics or subject matter

Non-verbal and verbal communication – delay in or a lack of learning how to talk, difficulty understanding the perspective of those listening to them, problems engaging in meaningful conversation, and a repetitive or stereotyped use of language

Social interaction and relationships – failure to establish friendships or relationships with their peers; lack of empathy; lack of interest where sharing achievements, enjoyment, or interests with others is concerned

As a parent, you need to be compiling a list of any unusual behavior while observing your child on a regular basis if you are concerned that they are showing the symptoms of Autism mentioned above. In so doing, when you discuss these issues with your child’s pediatrician, family physician, or are referred by either to a specialist to determine if Autism is present, this will help considerably.

Diagnosing Autism

Autistic children are often analyzed with their state by or approximately age three. Though there may be instances when a parent is aware that there is something going on when the child is at a young age, higher functioning forms of autism are often harder to spot. Warning signs vary from child to child. There are a few signs that all children with autism will have, however, and when these are present, a trip to the doctor for help would be warranted. Some cases can be caught very early. No matter how difficult or how subtle the signs to a doctor diagnosing autism will look for every known issue.

Classic Autism, commonly called Autism, is also sometimes called Kanner’s Syndrome after the Psychiatrist Leo Kanner. He studied 11 children at John Hopkins University from 1932 to 1943. He wrote about the common elements found in these children including a lack of emotion, repetitive actions, and problems with their speech formation, their ability to manipulate various objects, learning difficulties, and their levels of intelligence. His studies lead to many others wanting to learn more about the disorder.

]]>

Asperger’s Syndrome is named after its founder, Hans Asperger. His studies took place in Vienna in 1944. He discovered many individuals had the problems with social skills and repetitive patterns but they did not have trouble with learning or their cognitive abilities. They also portrayed some very exceptional talents or abilities that were considered to be very remarkable. Albert Einstein is a very famous individual who had Asperger’s Syndrome.

Dr. Andrease Rett documented what is known As Rett’s Syndrome while in Australia in 1965. This is classified as a neuro developmental degenerative disorder. It only affects girls and the degeneration results in them being completely dependent on others for all of their needs. They have some of the symptoms of Autism but they also suffer from muscle lose. Girls with Rett’s Syndrome often have very small hands and feet.

When it comes to ABA therapy, school employees will quickly learn that the method is by far the most effective treatment for all degrees of autism spectrum disorder. Another benefit to schools is the availability of training programs and classroom materials that will enable teachers to learn within the school, eliminating the need for costly travel and conferences. While students are always worth an investment, it is a sad reality that many schools lack the proper funding for such travel.

ABA therapy offers great benefit to teachers and school employees and allows professionals to teach children in a way that truly helps them learn. ABA therapy uses repetitive trials to teach children with an autism spectrum disorder to literally change the way they think. While most students inherently have the ability to infer meanings and concepts through observation, students with autism lack this innate ability. The good news, however, is that through repetition and diligent teaching, the synapses within their brains can literally be rewired so that they are able to think much like other students.

Autistic Signs – Signs And Symptoms Of The Autistic Disorder

Autistic Signs

The mainly signs of autism crop up during the early infancy and the disorder is usually diagnosed by the age of 3 when parents are alarmed by the abnormal development of their child. Infants above all improve usually until the age of 2 when the growth as well as the mental development hastily regresses. Autistic Signs

The autistic symptoms vary from one patient to another, from what i read in mild to severe forms. Between the first warning signs is the abnormal response to different stimuli like light or sound. Noises may appear painful to them, smells are overwhelmingly strong and touches are receipted as pains.

Loud noises caused by vehicles or machines, and very bright lights from different sources, trigger crises and inconsolable crying. The most specific behavior for the autistic patients is the indifference showed to the surroundings and the satisfaction of playing and being alone. They show no real interest in toys and are usually uninterested to interact with others, characteristics called in the medical specialty as protodeclarative pointing.

The activity level varies from an increase to reduction and autistic children resist cuddling. Autistic patients laugh, cry or are feeling distressed for unapparent reasons and cannot express their needs using the actual language. The use different gesture instead of words to express their wishes, as the impaired language development is obvious. Autistic Signs

Patients with high functioning autism manage to develop certain rudimentary communication skills but these cannot really serve for an actual social interaction. Some words or phrases are used repetitively (echolalia) and their patterns of speech lack expression or intonation. Usually these patients want to be alone and show no interest to other people’s presence.

Resisting changes in their routine or repeating an action over and over again is a part of their daily behavior. Autistic patients tend to flap their arms or turn in circles repetitively and with unknown meaning. In severe distress periods they engage in self-injurious actions like biting or scratching themselves, banging their heads. Warning signs in small children are their reject for cuddling or touching, often behavioral outbursts, inexplicable attachment to some objects and the radical ignorance to many others. Autistic Signs

Autistic persons cannot maintain an actual eye-contact, they do not fear danger and show an under sensitivity towards pain. Most of these children prove an abnormal sustained play combined with uneven motor skills. Don’t let your child suffer anymore! Lead your child out of his world through Autistic Signs program now!
