Treatment for Autism

Autism is a disorder in which children have impaired or poor communication and social skills. It usually becomes apparent within first three years of life but some mild cases get diagnosed during early schooling. Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted or repetitive behaviour. But many parents feel that their kids start showing autistic traits suddenly after a period of normal development.

For many years autism occurred in about 5 children per 10,000 live births. However, since the early 1990's, the rate of autism has increased enormously throughout the world, so that figures as high as 60 per 10,000 are being reported. The reasons for the increase are being debated, but the most likely cause appears to be the over vaccinations of infants, other theory prevalent are of Lyme Disease, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Chronic Inflammation Of Brain cells, Genetic Traits, Poor Neuro Immunity and Heavy metal Toxins.

Most autistic children are perfectly normal in appearance, but spend their time engaged in puzzling and disturbing behaviors, which are markedly different from those of normal children. They may stare into space for hours, throw uncontrollable tantrums, show no interest in people (including their parents) and pursue strange, repetitive activities with no apparent purpose. They have been described as living in a world of their own.

These are abnormalities of communication, abnormalities of social development, and a restriction of behavior and interest. Of these, the abnormalities of social development are the most specific to autism. These and other features will be described more fully.
