World Autism Awareness Day: Accept them Socially

Parent Interventions

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterised by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviours, speech and non-verbal communication as well as by unique strengths and differences. Autism can't be cured permanently. But, with the help of the advanced medical sciences, the life of such kids can be improved a lot, if the treatment has started as early as possible.

Early signs of autism can often be detected in children as young as 2-3 years in most of the cases, as per the doctors. In order to make them better, along with proper medical care, social acceptance also is needed. 

As per the doctors, the biggest issue with autism still remains at the grassroots level. 

If a child is not making eye contact while speaking or not responding while being called by name or to gestures then a doctor should be consulted immediately, suggest doctors.


Such children needs constant love, care and affection from all the sources. That is not just parents. It includes their immediate surroundings, peers and support system. 

Once autism is diagnosed, multi-factorial approach with behavioural interventions, sensory stimulation, speech therapy, occupational therapy, which focus on development of social skills, language, communication and daily skills, are needed to deal with the disorder.
