WHAT IS IS
Autism usually emerges during the first 3 years of life and is often indicated by repetitive stereotyped body movements such as rocking , pacing or hand flapping. In some cases there were children who have unusual responses to people , attachments to objects or aggressive and self injurious behaviors.
CAN IT BE CURED?
There is no known cure for Autism but this does not mean that there is no help for the Autistic person. It is important to know that each Autistic child is different and will show different behaviors. There are special schools and programs with trained instructors to help with the development and speech of each individual. Here are other ways Autism is cared for:
√ The child receives structured, therapeutic activities for at least 25 hours per week.
√ Highly trained therapists and/or teachers deliver the intervention. Well-trained paraprofessionals may assist with the intervention under the supervision of an experienced professional with expertise in autism therapy.
√ The therapy is guided by specific and well-defined learning objectives, and the child’s progress in meeting these objectives is regularly evaluated and recorded.
√ The intervention focuses on the core areas affected by autism. These include social skills, language and communication, imitation, play skills, daily living and motor skills.
√ The program provides the child with opportunities to interact with typically developing peers.
√ The program actively engages parents in the intervention, both in decision making and the delivery of treatment.
