A. Speech therapies and social skill training can allow individuals with Autism to manage the degree the effects of Autism has on them. 1. Teaching young toddlers basic skills like attention and perception can also help diminish the extent to which autism effects an individual because the brain is most subject to change before the age of four. 2. Individuals with Autism can also benefit from learning how to cope with their anxiety, the younger the diagnosis the better the outcome of the therapies.
The three distinctive behaviours of Autism are: Repetitive behaviours, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication and social interaction. When parents realize that their child has autism they should be emotionally strong. Being consistent in your child’s learning environment is very key to reinforce learning. Also they should be able to find non-verbal ways to communicate with their child. You just have to learn their language of communication.
One of the most usual arguments in favor of prolonged treatment is that it could yield results. The problem with this claim is that there is little research or trials to enforce it. Padawer brings forth a single case of a child that has combated Autism which does give a small validation to the fact that extensive care can be beneficial. This however is insignificant to the thousands of other cases circulating without helpful research that can make a difference for the children. A study by Deborah L. Kasman, researcher in medical futility, founded that there is a point where treatment is futile.
It has become common today that many Americans have given up on children who have autism. Teachers have even claimed that some kids with autism would never be able to speak, and read. Teachers, and schools for many years have placed autistic children in special-ed classes, and have considered them retarded. For years the parents of these children have been swept of there hope to find a way of giving their child what we consider a normal life. Kristine Barnett has found a way of giving these parents that hope they once lost.
New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concludes that with a 30 percent increase in the past two years, 1 in 68 U.S. children have been diagnosed with ASD concluding that early intervention can greatly improve a child’s long-term development and social behaviors (Autism 2014). There are several factors that may contribute to the rising prevalence rate of ASD. Like other disabilities, the occurrence rate of ASD for boys is five times higher than it is for girls. There could be several reasons for this disparity (Hallahan, Kauffman, Pullen, 2015, pp. 211). An article in Times Magazine entitled “Why Girls May be Protected Against Autism” explores why this may be the case.
Although understandably overwhelmed, Family B appeared to comprehend the information reviewed by each specialist, reinforced by the MRI and ultrasound images shared, as each provider used the teach back method to evaluate the parents’ understanding and repeatedly asked if they had any questions. A folder of contact information for each specialist was offered that also included FAQ sheets on all medical diagnoses. Each of the physicians encouraged the parents to contact them with additional questions they might have following the meeting. As a parent, I think it would be helpful to also have contact information for a support group or family mentor who has a child with a similar diagnosis to address any concerns about quality of life for the child and family across the
The aim of this essay is to look at Autism within Early Years settings. It will consider if a child who presents with Autistic traits which leads to behaviour issues, receives the inclusive learning environment that is required for them to reach their full potential. It will examine the factors that can affect children with Autism and reflect on how this makes a difference to their behaviour; positive and negative, evaluating whether Early Years Settings are equipped to manage in these situations. It will consider what parents, carer's, practitioners and other professionals can do to ensure the child has the correct learning environment to meet their individual needs. Following Bera (2011) unstructured interviews will be undertaken, research
Ajit Narayanan begins his speech about the different ways to communicate with kids who have trouble speaking, by telling a real story. In paragraph one Narayanan states that, “I work with children with autism. Specifically, I make technologies to help them communicate” (Narayanan, paragraph 1). This introduction engages listeners, because he offers credibility towards himself. This is not the most effective introduction, but it was still informative.
When looking at reviews on interventions used with children with asd it appears not all are effective there are features of some that are more effective than others. There has been a great level of importance placed on the key features that promote the effectiveness and that start the intervention process as early as possible that most children benefit from over 15 hours per week of intervention, the more the better. Including interventions were parents and carers can be involved. Interventions that seem to show the most affect are behavioural approaches and those that address the issues of social communication. There is no intervention that will reduce symptoms of autism, there are ones that focus on improving life skills and other abilities

By the end of my speech, 212 underprivileged children around the world would be clenching their stomach and wobbling from garbage dumps to garbage dumps, searching for half- eaten food. 5 children in India would leave school to work in a dilapidated undergarment factory for 14 straight hours, enduring whipping, and pain just for 3 bowls of rice. 3 children in Africa would be dead after being beheaded by heartless invaders. The power to change this situation lies with every one of you present today. Basic necessity such as food, basic education, security are few of many things that underprivileged children lack. As my speech continues, I would firstly, convince you on why underprivileged children need more help than ever. Secondly, I will show you how you can help them and why we cannot afford to not help
