Normal people all over the world, do you realize how lucky you all are that you are born with a great promise to have different opportunities opened up to you based on your accomplishments? Isn’t it that you can get the chance to live the lives that you have always wanted if you would choose to live it? Do you realize just how blessed you are to have choices about what you want to be or what you would like to achieve in the future? You probably never thought about it this way because you have never met someone who has autism.
Autistic children and adults are usually shunned by the world because others cannot understand why they behave the way that they do. Autistic children and adults usually have their own style of thinking and therefore, they do things differently. They usually have various problems - they go through behavioral problems, educational problems and even social problems. They are unable to cope with the various things that are asked of them like normal children because well, they are different.
Children and adults who are diagnosed with autism usually have problems with their speech so they can have trouble with expressing themselves. When they are unable to do so, they may become agitated and they would showcase some problems with their behavior that untrained parents and family members might become bewildered with especially since they do not know how to handle situations like that. Being aware of how to live with people with autism is always necessary because this can make things easier for everyone.
Autism is hard to diagnose mainly because they come in various forms in varying degrees. There are even some people who are borderline autistic but are not aware that they are actually suffering from a form of autism. There are some who may seem to be a bit weird because they do not experience various emotions. Usually, babies are not immediately diagnosed because their problems are not really evident unless they are already at the age when they should start talking.
Theories on Autism
There are various theories on how autism has started. Some say that exposure to virus has made autism possible but there are also some who say that it might be genetic and that it may be passed on as long as it is already in the family. This theory is actually considered more by experts because of the various studies that they have done.
Still, even with the theories on how autism may start, there are no known ways on how autism can be stopped. Like mentioned earlier, the levels of autism that may be experienced by people will all be different. This means that there are some people may not be able to live without the help of others while others are highly functioning and may actually get jobs in the future, they may still undergo treatment so that they can improve on the things that they can do.
Autism is a condition that is known to last a lifetime. There is no cure for autism yet but there are different therapies and treatments that can be done in order to make it easier for people to cope with the condition. There is still a lack of evidence that can pinpoint the primary cause of autism but experts are looking into finding out the main cause at the soonest possible time. Hopefully, together with the cause, autism can also be found with a cure. By now though, it will be best for people to know the various methods to cope well with this condition.
