Seven Things You Don’t Know About Autism

Author: No Comments

Autism Range Disorders (ASD) refers to a group of neurodevelopment disorders that are characterized by disabled social interaction, repetitious body movements (such as rocking, wringing of the hands, and banging of the head) and communication issues. Children and persons diagnosed with Autism Range Disorders will process information and facts in his or her brain differently than others without autism. Persons having ASD could react to several social situations and stimulations in different ways. Children having Autism Range Dysfunction may behave, learn and react abnormally compared to other children without Autism Range Dysfunction.

Autism is currently the fastest growing developmental disability, with a 10% to 17% annual growth. Autism was added as a special education exceptionality in 1991 and is now the sixth most commonly classified disability in the United States and it is because of this that it is important to make sure the individuals are being identified and are receiving appropriate intervention services as early as possible.

  • Epilepsy occurs in nearly one-third of people with autism. Though they have the potential to be dangerous, not all seizures are obvious to the untrained eye. Special testing is essential in autism health care to rule out epilepsy in people affected by autism.
  • Adults and children that suffer from this disease are generally easily agitated in adverse conditions. External stimulation such as excessive sound, light or large crowds may cause an individual who suffers from Autism to lash out unexpectedly.
  • Autism can cause difficulties in communication. For example, language might appear immature and stilted. It is also common for children to show what appears to be a lack of imagination and therefore struggling to interact with other children during play.
  • Boys are five times more likely to develop one of the autism spectrum disorders than girls are.
  • The cost faced by families affected by autism over one person’s lifetime is usually between $1.4 million to $2.4 million.
