You Can’t Manage What You Don’t Track
What is Autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), also known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDDs), cause severe and pervasive impairment in thinking, feeling, language, and the ability to relate to others. These disorders are usually first diagnosed in early childhood and range from a severe form, called autistic disorder, through pervasive development disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), to a much milder form, Asperger syndrome. The incidence of ASD is estimated at probably 1 in every 120 births, with boys being affected about 4 times more often than girls. Generally, the earlier the disorder is diagnosed, the sooner the child can be helped through treatment interventions. Learn more about autism for your child as a member of the Symptom Journal.
Causes of Autism
There is no known cause for ASD. Scientists believe that both genetics and environment play a part. Studies on families with children with ASD have been helpful in understanding how genes play a role. Current research points to brain abnormalities as the cause of AS. Using advanced brain imaging techniques, scientists have found structural and functional differences in specific regions of the brains of neuro-typical versus ASD children.
There are many different theories about causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many studies are being conducted about differences in brain activity with ASD children. Scientists have always known that there had to be a genetic component to ASD because of their tendency to run in families. A specific gene for autism, however, has not yet been identified. Inside the members area of the Symptom Journal, we discuss in detail the different theories and possible risk factors that are associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Symptoms of Autism
Children with Autism display impairments in social interaction, impairments in communication, and display many different forms of restricted and repetitive behavior. From the start, typical developing infants are social beings. Early in life, they gaze at people, turn toward voices, grasp a finger, and even smile. In contrast, most children with ASD seem to have tremendous difficulty learning to engage in the give-and-take of everyday human interaction. In the Members area, we discuss at length the different challenges with social interaction that Autistic children can tend to have.
By age 3, most children have passed predictable milestones on the path to learning language. One of the earliest is babbling. By the first birthday, a typical toddler says words, turns when he hears his name, and points when he wants a toy. Some children diagnosed with ASD remain nonverbal throughout their lives. Some infants who later show signs of ASD coo and babble during the first few months of life, but then soon stop. Others may be delayed, developing language as late as age 5 to 9.
Children with ASD often times display restricted and repetitive behaviors, which may include: compulsive behavior, restricted behavior, ritualistic behavior and a need for sameness. An extensive list of symptoms for autism is presented in your child’s Symptom Checklist. Through their Daily Questions, you can monitor how their autism symptoms, treatment, and lifestyle are affecting their overall health.
Diagnosis, Treatment & Self-Care with Autism
Understanding the process your doctor may use in diagnosing your child with autism helps you ask questions and better understanding your child’s autism diagnosis and treatment process. In the members area, there is a full description of the autism diagnosis process and possible tests that their doctor may order to determine whether your child demonstrates symptoms that are known to be associated with ASD. We discuss the conventional treatment options along with alternative and complementary treatments, including biomedical interventions that other parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder have found helpful for their children. Our autism Self-Care section for members explains how simple lifestyle choices can help improve your child’s outcomes and quality of life.
As a member of the Symptom Journal, you will be able to see how your child’s treatment, lifestyle choices, and nutrition correlate with how their symptoms spike or lessen through our Reports area, allowing you to make timely changes with your healthcare and educational teams that will ultimately save you frustration, time and energy. The information you receive from your child’s reports will help you make changes that help your child live their best life with autism.
Nutrition & Support with Autism
In the Nutrition section for members, we cover some of the most popular diets that parents of children with autism have used to positively affect their child’s quality of life and outcomes with autism. We also provide an Inspiration Toolkit for our members, giving parents tools, support, and motivational techniques for staying inspired with their child’s health journey. We understand the day-to-day challenges with autism and want to support you in creating the best quality of life for your child and family.
