Communication skills will then improve with the increase in the processing of sound. When it comes to auditory hypersensitivity, the sound stimulation given through the program, allows, “the nervous system to better modulate sensory input” (Doman and Lawrence 2). When sensory input is modulated, it allows an individual to be comfortable in their environment. Children with Autism may not be comfortable in a crowded room because of the amount of auditory stimulation occurring. Using this program will allow the child to become more comfortable with auditory stimulation and will allow them to be in environments that they once felt uncomfortable
Social interaction problems arise when persons with autism find it very difficult to mingle. Problems associated with interaction include finding it difficult to establish and maintain friendship, lack of interest in people, withdrawing oneself from other people, not paying attention in anything, being distant, and difficulty in expressing one’s feelings and emotions. Social imagination is being able to understand a person’s behavior, thoughts, feelings, and a person’s creativity. People with autism find it hard in imagination due to problem such as general imagination difficulty, trouble in comprehension of future events, challenge in shifting to new and unfamiliar situations, and finding it difficult to understand other person’s feelings, actions, and thoughts. Autism in the Inclusive Classroom Inclusive classroom entails bringing of students with and without disabilities together in school to access education in a general class.
In their study Hall & Case-Smith (2007) conducted research on the effect of sensory diet and therapeutic listening intervention programs that was guided by an license occupational therapist and implemented by parents in their home, on children with sensory processing disorders and visual-motor delays. In the study included 10 children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, who displayed moderate to sever sensory processing disorder and visual-motor integration delays (Hall& Case-Smith, 2007). The exclusion criteria of the study were participants with moderate to sever mental retardation, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, visual impairment, hearing impairment, and severe autism (Hall& Case-Smith, 2007). However participants could have attention deficit hyperactivity, sensory integration disorder, mild autism or pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger syndrome, developmental delays, coordination disorder, or motor delays (Hall& Case-Smith,
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.
The children don't have the appropriate essentials to express nor interact with the social development environment. In addition, the basic tool to interact with people may be difficult for the children with autism spectrum disorder. The symptoms the children tries to avoid is having an unusual or inappropriate body language, gestures or facial expression, an absence of interest in other people and not sharing the interests nor the accomplishment the child have finished. The child may also be less active amongst the people, and they have the difficult to understands the people feelings, reactions, and different cues the people responds. An autistic child suffers to interaction with people because they don't like being touch.
Some people with autism have a problem with touch like having their hair shampooed could feel awful. Or when a parent gives a child a hug it could be horrible to. I remember my father yelling at my mother telling her that I was insane and that I should be put into an institution but my mother wouldn't allow it. I remember in high school one of my teachers helped me build a squeeze chute. It worked really well I still use it till this day.
Most people with Autism have a dysfunctional sensory system. Meaning that people with autism can be more sensitive to light, sound, and smells. When Lennie was in the situations where he was holding on the girl’s dress, holding onto Curley’s hand, and holding onto Curley’s wife’s hair. He was experiencing something called a Sensory overload. A sensory overload is one or more of the body’s senses experience over-stimulation.
Many people are unaware of the different reactions an autistic person can have in different situations. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why they act the way they do to certain things because we cannot ask them these questions due to the fact that some can’t explain it; they can’t talk; or they are just really unsure as to why these things make them feel the way they do. In the book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time the author Mark Haddon really puts things in perspective for those who may not understand why autistic people react, or don’t react in certain
They avoid making eye-contact with others as well. One third of the people with autism do not speak and one in every 88 children gets diagnosed with
The mind of someone autistic is very up front. From what I learned from the book, they do not understand emotion as well as we do. For example, the boy with autism would carry a piece of paper with him that had pictures with different facial expressions depicting emotions on it. When he was confused on how someone felt about something, he would look at his piece of paper and match the face with the person, showing him how to react. Also, they all have special quirks about them, as shown in the book.
So recognizing signs and symptoms may be different in each country. For example in South Africa it is difficult to screen a child with autism using the ADOS method. One way would be by “A child pretending to have a birthday party- singing ‘Happy Birthday’, cutting and distributing slices of cake, and so on. But in rural areas of South Africa, birthdays often aren’t celebrated, so even typically developing children might be unfamiliar with this ritual.” (Brody, H., Matson, J. , & Goldin, R., pg. 2).
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is an amalgam of neurodevelopment disorders that are manifested as mild to severe deficiencies in social and communication interactions coupled with limited, repetitive and stereotypical behavioral patterns (American Psychiatric Association, 2012). This spectrum of disorders may occur independently or jointly in a patient. ASD being a behavior disorder requires a complex and comprehensive behavioral evaluation sometimes making it difficult to accurately
