Autism is not something to laugh about. In other words it’s not a disease, it is a disorder. Some kids in the world are born with and can’t get rid of it. Autism makes people act a different in ways for example, Learning disabilities Trouble speaking Making eye contact Hard to communication
Some examples include: “shows little concern for the child, appears unable to recognize physical or emotional distress in the child, denies that any problems exist at home or school, or blames the child for the problems, severely limits the child's contact with others, and offers conflicting or unconvincing explanations for a child's injuries or no explanation at all.” Some children overcome the physical and psychological effects of child abuse. These are children with strong social support who can adapt and cope with bad experiences. Unfortunately, most often child abuse may result in physical, behavioral, emotional, or mental issues, even years later.” (“Child
Children with Down’s syndrome do learn to walk, talk and be toilet trained, but in general will meet these developmental milestones later than their ordinary peers and find it difficult to form relationships. o ADHD/ADD: Children with attention deficit and/or hyperactivity face many difficulties as they grow up. As infants, those later diagnosed with ADHD are often described to have been excitable, irritable, colicky, or inconsolable. Often they are very physically active, easily distracted, and can be extremely sensitive to sights, sounds and touch, which can make traditional soothing methods seem ineffective. o Hearing impairment: Hearing is a critical part of language development, communication and learning.
Because many syndromes and other related conditions comprise the commonly known “spectrum,” addressing autism can be a challenge. “Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. They include Rett Syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental-disorder- not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and
When an infant is frequently terrified, which triggers the brain to produce too many stress hormones early in life, it can cause the brain to become incapable of responding normally to stress. Later in life, the infant may become hypervigilant (always on the alert) or (emotionally flat) never happy, sad or angry (Berger, 2011). When stress is being prolonged in young children, it can stop or slow down brain development. Many young children have their frontal lobes not fully developed, this makes it difficult for their brain to respond rationally to stress. The comfort and reassurance of safety by the caregivers can help young children handle stress and stay
Furthermore, most of children have low cognitive and they have not grown up old enough to recognize things around them which are real, and which are not. They often believe what they are seen especially fears. According to Dr. Sorensen, who wrote the book “Breaking the Chain of Low Esteem”, he addressed, “Fear & Anxiety are the cornerstones of low self-esteem”. He means to build up confidence for children, getting over fears and anxiety is the most important. To add up for this argument, Dr. Dhyan reported some common fears from children after watching movies: 97% children believe in the existence of ghosts, 89% fear from dark, 88% kids said that they would avoids any places, situations or people which are portrayed or depicted in horror movies., 56% commit that their studying is
Parents will then notice that their baby startles easily in response to any noise whether it happens to be loud or quiet. The babies appear to be unaware of their surroundings, and has extreamly poor vision at this point and extream muscle weakness with floppy limbs. Other developmental and behavioral abnormalities will be shown by this point also. However, by the two year mark, most children that suffer from this horrific disease will begin to suffer from uncontrollable seizures, they will have diminishing mental compacity amd lose any physical skills that they once had, such as sitting, crawling or even walking. Unfortuently there is yet any cure for Tay-Sachs Disease (TSD) and eventually the child will become blind, paralyzed and nonresponsive and sadly will die before their fifth birthday.
My brain just works differently than most other people’s. When people talk about vaccines and autism it makes me feel like I’m not a person but a ‘bad result.’ It reminds me that no one wants a kid like me and parents will risk their kid’s lives and everyone else’s just to make sure their kid doesn’t turn out like me.” Which makes me think not only the scientific part of this debate matters but also the human side to this too. There are three sides to this debate. The parents who don’t want to have an autistic child, the parents who do have an autistic child and the autistic children themselves. To some parents autism is the worst thing that can happen to their children.
What is autism? Autism is a complex developmental disability. People with autism have issues with non-verbal communication, a wide range of social interactions and activities that includes an element of play. The condition is the result of a neurological disorder that has an effect on normal brain function, affecting development of the person’s communication and social interaction skills. (What is Autism?, 2008) Autism must be understood in order to protect autistic people from being harmed and to avoid conflicts.
