Has anyone ever helped their child overcome autism?
My two year old son was recently diagnosed with Autisim and I'm trying to set up different therapies for him. The only signs I have noticed are repetitive behavior like opening and closing of the doors, light switches things like that and he doesn't answer to his name. He has some tantrums but they started when he was 18 months and they are ongoing until now but they are brief. My question is has anyone ever helped their child overcome autism?He only shows those signs of autism I listed above, nothing else like sensitivity to light, sound, and he loves playing with everyone who comes over and tries interacting with others but doesn't quite know how.
Can autism even high functioning cause incontinence?
I have an older cousin who is very intelligent but wears diapers. My aunt says that it is because he has autism. This made me curious, so I looked online and found a list of traits for ASD. I was shocked to see that there were quite a few physical traits that went along with the mental disability. Seizure activity, insomnia, and food allergies are some of the other physical traits packaged with autism. What I want to know is it normal for people with high functioning autism, who work and go to school, to have incontinence? I always thought it was an issue with the mental functionality of the particular autistic patient and not an actual physical problem. If it is a physical issue that causes the incontinence then explain to me why even high functioning individuals still have these physical conditions? Like is it genetic or something?
Do I have autism or not I am 16 and male?
I have taken those online quizzes and I have gotten news that I may have it. I am very asocial, or antisocial whichever you prefer . I have moderate depression. I always stare at people in their eyes and make them feel uncomfortable. I don't really show much emotion, and when I do it is negative. I have a lack of empathy. For example, when my parents got divorced, I didn't care until I realized that I would have to move away from my girlfriend. Then I started crying big time. I have trouble starting and keeping conversations going, even if I start it. I don't enjoy much, just history. And my school grades show it. I have delayed reactions to jokes, like I will laugh three minutes after something happens. I sometimes feel like there is air in my head, is that normal? Back to my symptoms... I like spinning stuff around, in circles. Like I will take a paper in my algebra class I can't concentrate there and start spinning it around on my desk. I am very into sameness in my routine. If an alteration occurs, I get upset. I most likely have depression. I have sleep problems. And I have ADHD. When people are upset, like my girlfriend when we are fighting , I will keep talking without realizing what I am saying, nor that it is offensive. Help?
Why don't doctors diagnose autism before age 3?
My son just turned two years old and has many of the signs for autism. The doctors keep telling me they can't make a diagnosis until age three. Why do I have to wait a year? It's so hard not knowing.
Are there any with a mild case of autism? then please help?
Hi everyoneI have writed something just recently on here about my suspicion on a mild case of autism. But i didnt think i got really good answers... so if there are anyone with maybe autism or have experience on it please it would mean alot of you answered me.My symptoms is I am not social at all to be honest i can be social with my friends and my family a little bit but i get tired of it and just wanna get home and like restore. I usually just hang out in my house and dont really like to get out, and i also dont feel any need for it. I do good in school i get average or bit over average in math, biology, english and stuff. and i dont have any speech delays. I sometimes cant make a conversation go on when im talking to a stranger or something and i find it very awkard sometimes to speak to people i dont really know that well.I also have a special ability to just like remember all dates of random people birthdates and the time of their death. i am also very good at remembering phone numbers and if my friends cant remember a phone number ill just solve it out for them since i usually always remember it. I have taken memory tests online and pretty much in everyone of them i score ALOT over average. I also have a little bit of a fascination for numbers and dates especially if both of them mixed togeter. Its not something that i think of in my day, but when talking about dates and numbers i have a unusual opinion about it. i also sometimes look at car number plates and try to remember them.I also have this thing that when i find something interesting i like to carry ALOT of information on just that one thing. It can be on dates, certain persons, tests, or something like that. I dont really care about what cloth i have on and stuff and really dont care what other people think of me. I also have have an urge to correct people if they say something wrong.. or if i watch something on tv i have an urge to tell all the information about what we are seeing before i can watch it trough. Overall i feel kinda normal and i also kinda knows how to behave in social enviroments but i have theese thing above.Could i have a mild case of autism?
Do I have autism?????
I'm 17 and female. I'm socially awkward. I have been told that I look awkward when I walk. I don't participate in group conversations I have been told I am " out of the loop" when it comes to being social. I have " social exhaustion" , I am an anarchist and I don't believe in going to school work. I don't like having to go to school everyday, I want a break, so I dropped out. In social situations, I feel very uncomfortable. Very. I constantly think people are judging me, laughing at me, pointing at me, talking about me. I also have a very hard time following simple instuctions. Especially math. I have to have something repeated to me a couple of times for me to understand it. I am alone, I am too scared to talk to people. I always feel like I am an outcast. I have a higher tesosterone than a normal teenage girl should. I am overly sensitive and take a lot of offence when people insult my image. I get instrusive thoughts about going on a shooting spree and I have since I was 14 . I lack compassion and I don't know how to comfort people. I laugh at things that aren't funny. Oh and I also have a deepish voice for a woman, And apparently I have an accent. I've been asked what country I am from when I haven't even gone overseas. I feel like there is something wrong with me, but I cannot pinpoint it. It makes me feel sooooooo different to everyone in the whole world.
Is it possible to have undiagnosed autism at age 18?
Apart from bring diagnosed with depression and put on medications I have had no other abnormal health issues. However in recent years I've felt something is not quite right. I have completed the Autism Research Centre's Autism Spectrum Quotient and scored similar to 80 % of people with autism. I am unsure if the doctors will take me serious or just think I'm being a hypochondriac. Help?

Have a question that is about a kid with Autism ?
Ok so I am interested in the medical field I especially like cardiology and learning about people hwo are I should say kinda mentally handicap like for example people who have autism or that are autistic. So anyway back to my question there is this kid in my math class hwo has autism and yes I am in learning support classes because I have ADHD. Anyway when I sometimes observe his actions I see that he sometimes squeezes his hands and rubs them and it also looks like he is bitting his bottom lip and sometimes it looks like he is bitting it really hard also closing his eyes and it makes it look like he is doing something really hard but it's kinda hard to explain. I'm not sure if he's thinking really hard about something or I have no idea I've never seen this type of behavior before wit autistic people. I've seen them look around the room but I know even though it looks like they are not paying attention I know they are actually listening. But anyway i have never seen any autistic kid do what he does is he thinking really hard or doing something else idk please comment back appropriately and thank you Noah
