Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism spectrum disorders are a group of developmental disorders which include delays in child development, problems with socializing and communicating and repetitive movements and behaviors.
Children with autism spectrum disorder do not like changes to their routine and need strict schedules. They may avoid eye contact, have trouble controlling emotions and perform repetitive behaviors like hand flapping, rocking and jumping. They may perform activities that could cause self-harm such as biting and head banging. It is very important to find out as soon as possible if a child has an autism spectrum disorder so that resources can be lined up to help the child reach his or her full potential. The sooner that starts, the better.
Autism spectrum disorder is considered to be a “ developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life.
There are medications to help children with autism spectrum disorders and work best when paired with therapy. Diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders needs expertise from an experienced psychiatrist.
Management and treatment of autism spectrum disorders involves a team of professionals including nurses, nutritionists , psychologists , speech therapists and physical therapists working under supervision of an experienced psychiatrist. Psychosocial support for patients and their families is crucial.
