What Is Autism

Speech and language not just delayed language but the disordered language or atypical language development and then the area is of restricted repetitive behaviors and play and these are the three criteria that have been used in the DSM for the new
a classification which is now the DSM-5 really focuses on two areas which are the disordered social communication and the repetitive play or perseverate of play and stereotyped is etc..

So this is a newer classification but there are many other areas that we see with children beyond the exact DSM diagnosis a lot of kids have sensory issues they can be oversensitive to sound and texture or under-sensitive there are kids who have savant skills very gifted parents come in excited these kids are reading by two and three years elderly and truly these will have a photographic memory or simply continuance things and have what we tend to decision echolalia continuance words or scripting that is knowing a dialogue from a book or a motion-picture show verbatim such a lot of of those uncommon things also are seen in kids with what we tend to decision currently the syndrome spectrum disorder and medical problems is another space that we are able to remark however primarily it is important to know the behavioral disorder concerned and creating the identification, therefore, the term syndrome was initial coined by dr. Leo Khanna within the 40s and he delineated children with these particular difficulties as I mentioned with communication with speech and with separative play and particular interests but over the years we have the naming has changed from childhood schizophrenia to psychosis to pervasive developmental disorders.

And that is commonly used as well but the current language is autism spectrum disorders because it is a matter of degree of involvement and I think that's very important to understand that we are labeling the children we're looking at symptoms and we're trying to define them because it becomes important for diagnosis as well as to provide services I don't want anybody to be just called or this child is autistic I want the child to be remembered for who they are having particular symptoms that we have labeled as having an autism spectrum disorder .
