ADHD is characterized by persistent difficulties in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted or repetitive behaviors. Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience varying degrees of symptoms and effects.
Patterns of Behavior
- Repetitive behaviors like hand-flapping, rocking, jumping, or twirling.
- Constant moving (pacing) and “hyper” behavior.
- Fixations on certain activities or objects.
- Specific routines or rituals (and getting upset when a routine is changed, even slightly)
- Extreme sensitivity to touch, light, and sound.
ASD cannot be cured at this time, but several interventions have been developed and studied for use with young children to help them cope with the condition. Interventions such as these can reduce symptoms, improve cognitive abilities and daily living skills, and maximize a child’s ability to function and participate in the community.
People with ASD have unique strengths and challenges in social communication, behavior, and cognitive ability because of the differences in how ASD affects each person. A child’s needs will be addressed through a multidisciplinary treatment plan that may include parent-mediated interventions.
Children’s social communication skills, as well as restricted interests and repetitive and challenging behaviors, have been the focus of behavioral intervention strategies, particularly in young children. As well as occupational and speech therapy, social skills training and medication may be helpful for some children. According to the individual’s age and strengths as well as challenges and differences.
Just like any other child, an autistic child is susceptible to illness and injury. Treatment plans for children should include regular medical and dental examinations. Often, it’s difficult to tell if a child’s behavior is due to ASD or a separate health condition. So, head banging could be a sign of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), or it could be a sign that the child has headaches or earaches, for example. There is a need for a thorough physical examination in these situations. While keeping an eye on a child’s physical and mental well-being, it’s important that you also keep an eye on the child’s symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
