Structure & function: Of the autistic vs. Neurotypical (NT) brain differ. Activation on fMRI of frontal & temporal cortex in teens with ASD vs. NT's exposed to 2 slightly noxious stimuli showed = initial sensations but over-reactivity in processing & interpretating them in those with ASD, consistent with anatomical findings of small patches of disorganized neurons in the layers of the frontal & temporal cortex in ASD
A neurodevelopmental disorder affecting three areas: abnormal socialization, communication, and restricted interests with repetitive patterns of behavior. It is usually detected in the first two years of life. Cause is unknown but strong evidence points to an interplay between ...Read more

Antenatal factors: Some syndromes cause autistic spectrum disorder & intellectual disability. Chromosomal microarrays find genetic errors in ~15% of kids with ASD. Maternal low folate (folic acid) levels at conception, rubella, "flu", obesity, advanced age & alcohol/drug use from 3 wks. Post-conception-term are some epigenetic factors that alter function, but not structure or sequence, of fetal genes & increase risk of ASD.
Good question.: The only proven method to help youngsters overcome autisms challenges is science based intensive individualized intervention using an applied behavior analysis model. As a healthcare provider and father if child with autism, I regret to report there is no quick fix, however, we know more about autism today than ever. Feel free to message me if you would like more specific information.See 4 more doctor answers
Not really: Selective mutism implies normal speech and language in certain "safe" settings, and a voluntary resistance to speaking in other "frightening" settings or venues. Autistic children don't speak well because of their neurological deficiency. Some higher functioning autism patients may refuse to speak (in their normal way) in certain settings or with certain people, but this is not mutism.See 1 more doctor answer

Not uncommon: Many children with autism, especially when younger and with fewer communication and social skills, are at risk for elopement. There may not experience a sense of danger at leaving or recognize the need to notify others of desire. For some it is such a problem that they need to keep some type of tracking device on. Luckily this will become less an issue for most as they are older. Aba can help.See 1 more doctor answer
Not a cure: Biobita is a combination of probiotics and vitamins. While it can help the GI tract, there is no definitive evidence that it will help autism. The claims are testimonials without research back up other than describing research that was not autism specific. With that said if your child has problems with pain, chronic constipation or diarrhea, making him irritable, Biobita may help that and his mood

There are private: Schools for kids with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The U.S. Individuals with Disabilities Education Act grants every child a free & appropriate education in the least restrictive setting. Placement of a child with ASD depends on degree of autism + presence or absence & severity of Intellectual Disability & disruptive behaviors. Special public schools exist for more impaired students.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends,,,: First of all kids need to eat and grow so they need to consume food. But autistic kids have very restricted diets, and often crave the very food that is not good for them. The restricted diets are often not nutritionally complete. Different diets: gluten free, casein free, soy free, gaps, and feingold, have all been reported to help some, but not all. I would find a maps doctor to help you sort.
Green and organic: Any child can be sensitive to artificial ingredients. I think the biggest offenders are artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. So as organic as you can reasonably find is good. Other than that, unless they have an allergy to a food, give them whatever they will eat. The gfcf diet usually does not improve autism unless there are gastrointestinal problems.See 1 more doctor answer
Better screens: One of the reasons is for sure the increasing awareness of it (thanks to the media mainly) and improvement of the diagnostic screenings in schools, hospitals etc. So, at least in part, is about finding it more effectively which gives us the impression that it became more prevalent.
No one simple answer: Due to the extremes in variability in ability to communicate in this multifaceted disorder, there is no one correct way to achieve the teaching you desire to correct bad behavior. Even the premise "bad behavior" is often in the eye of the beholder. Generally one must use the most effective communication form and direct the child away from the undesirable action. There can be many strategies.See 2 more doctor answers
Good question: And it cannot be effectively answered here..." autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors." great website for more info: http://www. Autismspeaks. Org/what-autism.
No known cause: There is currently no known cause. A diagnosis is usually made after a psychiatrist or physician obtains a complete history and physical and bases the diagnosis on specific criteria. Often a test called the ados can provide further information in making the diagnosis.
Yes: I am and so are other physicians I know. I have had good experiences with chinese medicine, homeopathy, gluten free/casein free diet, supplements and of course therapies. I have had patients experience significant improvement. I actually have two patients (who were high functioning to begin with) have their diagnosis of autism removed. While that is unusual, it shows it can happen.See 3 more doctor answers
Early Intervention: The earlier a child is diagnosed and started with therapies the better the outcomes. The plan needs to be multifactorial and may include biomedical, st, pt, ot as well as behavioral. All those who work with the child should be educated on what to expect and how best to respond to certain behaviors. Support groups for parents and respite care are key to allow them time to recharge.See 1 more doctor answer
Same: Autism & autistic disorder are the same. As of may 2013, the new diagnostic manual is changing things, getting rid of asperger's disorder and pervasive developmental disorder & creating an umbrella term of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to include individuals with lifelong problems in social interactions & unusual interests or bizarre behaviors. Exact changes are not yet public but will be soon.See 1 more doctor answer
