Is Autism impairing your child’s ability to communicate and interact with his surrounding and people. Our Child Psychologist can help you manage your childs autism at our Vashi Clinic.
Children with Autism may display the signs during infancy or even toddlerhood, but parents may often miss these. There are three important areas where these children may display some abnormality.
Some signs may be spotted in infancy itself or even early toddlerhood. However, often parents may notice the aforementioned signs by the time the child is about 3 years of age. The disorder is more of a spectrum and the above signs may be seen with varying levels of intensity. Some children may have good language development and are deficient in the other two areas. Some children may also have Intellectual Disability as a co-morbidity. Often, children may have behavioural disturbances in the form of temper tantrums, anger outbursts or other displays of stubborn behaviours. Some children may show a “genius level” of intellect in a selective area of intelligence like Math or Music. These are like “islands” of intelligence, but are quite rare.
Just like any other illness our child psychologist in Vashi, Navi Mumbai wil take a detailed history bright from conception to the current development is sought from parents. A mental state examination is essential. Sometimes, other caregivers like grandparents, may need to be interviewed.
After diagnosing, treatment prescribed is usually symptomatic. Medication is advised for behavioural disturbances. For academic and intellectual difficulties, behavioural interventions are employed. Many a times, parents are distraught and often need counselling. Psycho-education of parents is done so as to help them deal better with the special needs of their children.
