Does your child appear to be growing at a slower rate than other kids? Do they react differently in social situations? Are there any behavioral problems? Well, there’s a chance they’re suffering from a condition known as ‘autism.’
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental illness that affects children and is characterized by aberrant social interactions, communication difficulties, and repetitive. This illness comprises autistic disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and other developmental disorders not otherwise specified, according to the DSM-5, a diagnostic classification for mental diseases.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every 68 children in the United States has autism spectrum disorder, with boys being 4.5 times more likely than girls to be diagnosed. Despite the efforts to determine what causes this disease, the exact reason remains unknown.
There is no single medical test that can identify if a kid has autism spectrum disorder, but there are a number of symptoms and developmental delays that may suggest autism.
Obviously, only a medical professional can provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment for autism, but you may keep an eye out for anything that appears to be wrong and then notify your child’s physician if required.
7 They Don’t Look You in the Eye
By nature, children are friendly and like socializing with their parents, siblings, and other people.
They are constantly studying what others do and say, and they identify faces and listen to sounds.
Autism-affected children, on the other hand, may have a harder difficulty connecting with adults and may not respond to eye contact or a parent’s remarks.
Children with autism may have a “tendency to look at and listen to other people less often,” according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
Please, even if you’re not sure, have your youngster examined as soon as possible!
