Autism spectrum disorders: "rain babies" under close supervision
These children are not like everyone else.With age they get used to the society, but it feels that the world for them is not so important. Their intellect is often above average, but in school it is difficult for them, and with them it is not easy. Children of the rain. A doctor will diagnose them from the section "Autism spectrum disorders".
However, how to determine if a person is sick?How is autistic disorder manifested? First, the child has difficulty communicating with the world around him. Many noticed that yawning is contagious. But autistics are not "infected". That is, those social connections that are important for ordinary people, for "rain people" are not of great value. Secondly, communication for such personalities is a very difficult task. Third, the sign of autism is considered to be repetitive actions, they are stereotyped: a person seems to have a small repertoire of behavior.
Disorders of autistic spectrum are manifestedalready in 2-3 years. Such kids do not have a reaction to living people. They often do not hug the mother, they are not interested in the expression of people's face and their emotions. They are more interested in things and their properties, they often choose their favorite toys and can not switch to others. They seem to be obsessed with certain actions and can do the same for hours, for example, pour sand. Sometimes, a child before a certain age behaves normally, and then suddenly acquires autistic properties.
Often "children of the rain" do not even respond to theirname, avoid eye contact with the people around them. It is difficult for them to understand what these surrounding people feel and think, the usual clues that they say to conditionally normal people about relationships and states, for them, they do not seem to exist. For some reason, they do not have empathy, they will not be told by your expression of eyes or tone of voice, they live in a world without people. They are not looking for signs of attitudes toward themselves. Sometimes, when they are forced to communicate, they can even be aggressive.
Very characteristic of small autistic movementslike rocking or twisting on the spot. Often they tend to be aggressive towards themselves. They can bite themselves or beat on the head. Children whose condition is described by a diagnosis from the series "Autism spectrum disorders" often call themselves by name or "you", "you". And others call it "I". This is not surprising, because that's what people say about oneself. And they are really called either by name, or by "you" and "you." So this symptom is completely logical on the basis of their logic. They generally start talking later than other children. Autism spectrum disorders do not allow children to learn to play with peers. If they say, then only on some favorite topics, and they do not care, it is necessary and interesting whether it is their interlocutor.
Often an autistic disorder - nottheir only psychiatric diagnosis. Autistic people may have genetic abnormalities or cognitive disorders, sometimes "rain children" suffer from attention deficit disorder. About 20-30% of them by the age of eighteen have experience of epileptic seizures.
With age, some of them become more adapted than others. Some are even capable of graduating from high school, although they make up a small percentage of the total.
Why do children have autisticdisorder? In modern psychiatry, it is common to blame genes. The hypothesis of incorrect education has not been confirmed, although, of course, loving parents can make the life of their child easier.
What to do if the child is diagnosed from the sphere"Autism Spectrum Disorders"? Look at the situation differently. Adult autistics consider their condition simply an alternative way of being. Maybe this is true to some extent? It's good that these children are no longer considered schizophrenic.
