Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Autism
is a behaviorally defined developmental disorder that begins in early childhood that has the following three defining core features:
Problems with social interactions
Impaired verbal and nonverbal communication
A pattern of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests.Autism disorder persists throughout the person's lifetime, although many people are able to learn to control and modify their behavior to some extent.There is no cure for autism. The traditional approach for a child with autism includes special education and behavioral management. There is some evidence that the earlier behavioral, educational, speech, and occupational therapy
is begun, the better the long-term outcome. This is often an intensive and long-term commitment, and there is no easy answer. Behavioral treatments, medications, and other treatments may help manage some of the problems associated with autism.
Treatment strategies used in autism include behavioral, educational, biomedical, and complementary therapies. Some of these are supported by scientific studies, while others are not. It is important to discuss with your doctor.
