Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Rehaab Roots

Autistic Spectrum Disorder is an umbrella group of term for a wide spectrum of disorders that specifically focus on a child having deficits in socialization, social interaction, social communication, cognitive and academic skills etc. Children belonging to the Spectrum show a range of behaviors and often find it difficult to express their thoughts, feelings and emotions in a way a normal person usually would.

This being said, children with autism exhibit different types of behaviors (repetitive behaviors) where they adhere to repetitiveness, sameness and routines. Furthermore, they maintain poor eye contact and have a restless demeanor. Other disorders that come under the Spectrum are Rett’s Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) etc.

Autism and its related disorders: What is it?

Every parent always wonders why their child is not looking at their face, responding to their name when called and is restless. If you as a parent or a person who cares for the child notices such persistent symptoms for a period of 2-4 years, this could mean that your child is under risk of potentially being in the Spectrum. Below listed are a few signs that could assist in identifying your child’s condition

  • Child has poor eye contact.
  • Does not respond to name when called.
  • Seems constantly fascinated with one or more particular objects (eg: lights, sounds, fan etc)
  • Enjoys order and has repetitive motor behaviors (for eg: has toe walking, repeats the same word many times or likes to eat the same food every day or take the same route to the park every day).
  • Shows increased sensitivity to touch, taste, sound, smells, textures (like rough surfaces, sand, water etc..)

If you find these to be present in your child, please contact our in-house team at Rehaab Roots for further diagnosis and a holistic treatment.

Autism and ADHD

For many children with autism comes the need to be constantly vigilant and hyperactive in the tasks they undertake.

Many a times your child may find it difficult to sit in class, you hearing teachers complain about unfinished homework or the child being inattentive in classroom settings. He/she may also not make eye contact while in a conversation and will not involve in activities that require sustained effort.

One of the major differences between being autsitic and having hyperactivity is that the child generally has a good social communication in ADHD, but is unable to maintain that due to his/her impulsive, intrusive thoughts. This can easily be translated to say that your child is ‘hyper’ and keeps is not attentive and that he/she may require a few behaviours modified.

Here are some signs listed below that could help you identify and help your child gain the required attention if he/she has ADHD

  • Is inattentive in class, during play
  • Finds it difficult to focus on one task – often leaves it unfinished
  • Is restless: (in children, this can be seen with them tapping their feet or fidgeting with their hands etc.)
  • Little concept of waiting (turn-taking behaviour is not present)

These are important signs and for further information and therapy, you can contact us for a thorough diagnosis at Rehaab Roots (Srinagar Colony).
