  • Thesis is explaining what autism is about and how it works. It talks about how autism is diagnosed as a child and continues into adulthood. It explains the main disabilities and what skill are developed. There have been many advances to autism but still there is no known cure.\n
  • One of my cousin’s has autism spectrum disorder, and I’m really familiar with working with her but i wanted to learn more about what the disorder actually is and how it effects her. I want people to reach out and help others and try to make a difference in there lives. I know my cousin helped me become a better person and really touched my life.\n
  • The word autism comes from the Greek word autos which means self. For the past 100 years we this disorder autism spectrum disorder. In the year 1911 Eugen Bleuler a psychiatrist who was the first to diagnose the disease. When autism was found it was used to describe emotionally disturbed children, still not knowing the entire mean of the disorder. This was because it was still early and the researchers have not looked into the autism disorder as much. \n\n\n
  • In 1943, Dr. Leo Kanner explained what autism was and how it worked. He was able to explain this because he had been observing eleven children since they were born for six years who showed the early signs of autism. The years were 1938 to 1943. By his research and understanding this study made it more clear. Kanner observed different children and had to do many tests and compare the difference in each child to make sure his studies were correct.\n
  • Autism is a severe developmental disorder. Children who have this disorder appear and look to be normal but do not act like it. The disorder is different in each person who has it. The cases of autism can range. Some only have it very lightly and are able to interact with others. In other cases they might not be able to talk. That is why i find autism so interesting because it affects everyone so differently. \n\n
  • Mostly researchers look for a delay in social interaction, the way they act and speak. Those are the three main areas health professors look for to find autism. Some childrens symptoms begin right at infancy and others may not develop until they are toddlers. Those who have autism usually have a certain routine they are used to. If that routine were to change they might tend to get confused. \n\n\n
  • Autism makes a person feel uninvited to a conversation making them not want to associate with others. When having a conversation with someone who has autism they may not look you in the eye or even look at you at all. Sometimes they purposely distract themselves by doing something ese and dont care to listen to you. The have a hard time understanding feelings of others. \n\n\n
  • People with autism usually begin talking at a later age. it takes them a longer time to put sentences together and words. you just have to be patient with them. \n\n\n
  • These skills are different in every child. Some dont like to talk to others and some cant stop talking once they get started. It depends on their comfort level. \n\n\n
  • In my family we dont look at my cousin as having a disorderm but as being different and unique. There is no known cure for autism but there are many different ways to help those with the disorder. There has always been a search to find a cure. No case is the same and the signs in two different people could be similar but the disorder can range in all different areas.\n\n\n
  • the symbol for autism is a the puzzle piece banner being all different colors. The reason for puzzles pieces is because they are still trying to find a cure. and it is said that each child with autism has their own piece of the puzzle, and the different colors represents the diversity and different ranges of the disorder and how their special in their own way. \n\n\n
  • Its still unclear as to what exactly causes autism, but for the past couple years there has been a gene mutation study that researchers are looking for. There are alot of genes related to brain functions and they may mutate causing autism. its said that 30-50% are inherited. \n\n\n
  • When autism was first found it was found in five out of every ten thousand children. Now its found in every sixty of ten thousand. It shown to be more common in boys than girls. \n\n\n
  • The five disorders are all under the category of autism. Each of these disordes have common symptoms.\n\n\n
