Autism and Education – How Does It Impact Children's Education?

Autism is an abnormality that has an impact on the whole person and most commonly for memories of his life. Specifically, this disorder affects emotions, memories, sensory abilities, non-verbal communication skills, and much more. One hundred and fifty people are affected by all race and social status; and affect more boys than girls.

A general description that I have heard among professionals is that many who suffer from autism are able to think about thoughts but can not voice these thoughts.

The most important symptoms that include:

Repeating Behavior – For example, a toddler can be played particularly firmly in a particular game, permanently arranging objects in some way or obscuring certain things.

Lack of social interaction – Another symptom is in the area of ​​relationships. According to research, people suffering from autism tend to be "socially unaware". This means they do not know the feelings of people around them.

Verbal and nonverbal communication – Autism is by nature a neurobiological disorder. It affects the way the brain turns thoughts into words. That's why a kid may think of a question, but vocalization is a very difficult task. Non-verbal communication is difficult for many people who are considered "normal", so imagine what it is to be who has difficulty connecting to their emotions – not to mention the emotions of others!

Limited interest in activities or in the game – For example, a child may focus on a gameplay instead of playing the entire game or play a certain tune of a game instead of playing the other twenty-two songs in the game. There is also a need for a rigid routine, which would mean that every new activity is resistant.

In early childhood, it is not uncommon for parents to get upset about instincts that their child may have – for example, they do not want to keep them, do not look at people's eyes, do not have late speech, lack of interest in gaming or "super repetitive play" – where the child sees only the interest of a toy – ever, etc. Both parent and teacher (as well as the autistic half brother) please follow the instincts.

No one knows the child as he does it, so if your pediatrician says "expectation and sight", he feels strongly that your child needs to make an assessment – do what you feel you should do. The parents I've heard about are some of the following red flags that have received them: they do not show "eye contact", they can concentrate "without their knowledge of their environment" ### or as a

Early Intervention
Early intervention, in particular in pre-school years, has proved (researchers) to improve social, cognitive and communication skills in many instances – in many cases, especially when it comes to the needs of children with special needs in the educational environment. Remember, for some children, the sooner the intervention is the better!

Types of Autism
Autism has created a spectrum that allows medical attention for the profession to accurately diagnose the disorder. Mood disorders (Asperger's syndrome) (autistic disorder), and can be diagnosed for three years and sometimes for eighteen months. Autism spectrum disorders are classified based on the degree of impairment in the following areas;

o Communication Skills

o Social Interaction

o Limited Behavior of Behavior

Asperger's Syndrome
In 1940, Hans Asperger described the behavioral symptoms of his male patients. They all saw normal intelligence and linguistic development, yet they lacked good coordination and communication skills. In addition, their social skills were very noticeably lacking.
Typical symptoms of Asperger's syndrome include a child who is diagnosed later in life much later than with typical autism – usually between five and nine. In addition, they know that they have limited facial expressions, obsessive behavior, poor social interaction, difficulty reading other body language, strange speech patterns, and obsessive routines.

In addition, the symptoms of Asperger's syndrome are unusual sensitivity to sensory stimuli, such as the lights (which are not perceived by others) or sounds (which others can hardly hear.)

Childhood disintegration disorder or CDD Theodore Heller, a special educator, has discovered that children with CDD are said to develop a disorder similar to autism, but only two to four years after normal development. In other words, children inexplicably retreat, lose their language skills, and their self-reliance, their interest in the environment, etc. While the disorder looks exactly like autism, history is very different 19659002] Symptoms include increased risk of seizures and symptoms of autism

Rett syndrome
Rett syndrome was first performed in 1954 by Dr. Andrea and Rett, an Austrian ped iatrician. This is a developmental disorder that is more likely than girls than boys. This is caused by the mutations associated with the X chromosome of the gene called MECP2. Symptoms include normal development after six to eighteen months after which this stagnation or the slowdown of skills occurs. After stagnation, there is a period of regression when the child loses communication skills and ultimately all the intended use of their hands. The following symptoms include stereotypic hand wash movement, convulsions, slower growth of normal head and abnormal breathing patterns.

Anomaly can be demonstrated by simple blood tests.

Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Specified
Otherwise, a condition known as PDD-NOS is a condition in which a person does not compare the same abnormality. In other words, John can show some symptoms, while Mary may have something completely different. They are also often exposed to the same key symptoms, but may vary.

PDD-NOS is by nature (which means there is no severe symptom because it varies per child), PDD-NOS is very difficult to diagnose, and often it is often diagnosed poorly. Treatment should also be very specific to the needs of the person in question and may often include alternative therapies such as martial arts and music.

Sometimes "blunder" – referring to the need for their own world, lack of social interaction and limited communication ability, repetitive behavior and unrest related to change – no matter how small . Children (or adults) with classic autism can not be regarded as "high-performing".

How does autism affect your child's education?
In many cases, the "autistic child" must attend special educational classes – where teachers are trained to understand how to deal with symptoms, autistic tendencies and other disorders. While "inclusion" is a new break in special education, I find that children with severe autism do not generally enjoy it. However, I have seen children with autism and are excellent on certain topics; For example, I was watching a business computing class where code html was taught. During the test, the teacher deliberately put errors on some of the code for students to correct and rewrite. Well, there was a young man in the class who corrected the teacher before the trial began – and he was with Asperger's syndrome. "Insane Behavior" & # 39; worked for the benefit of "the details" which resulted in becoming an outstanding website designer.

Weaknesses can become strong one day – and I hope for your child.
