Dr. Ernest Bordini answered:

Can kids with mild autism perform well in school?

They often can

Physical_exam
Autism spectrum disorders are complex in terms of cognitive functioning., language, learning disorders, memory, motor and sensory disorders, executive functions, and even rarer neuropsychological factors. Even children labeled "mild" can be very different. Comprehensive neuropsychological assessment to assess these skills can be expensive, but can zero in on learning strategies and needs.

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

Why do kids with autism regress?

Kanner's 1943 paper

on Autism described autistic regression in ~ 30% of toddlers, same as today. Neuroimaging of siblings of kids with Autism shows atypical development of white matter at 6 -12 mos. & decline in gaze directed toward faces from 6-36 mos. in sibs who develop clinical Autism up to 18 mos. after white matter changes appear, showing that autistic regression is far more gradual than previously thought.

Dr. Susan Pratt answered:

Do kids with autism like to watch tv?

Many do, some don't

Autism
Many children with autism love to watch TV, videos, and the like, and many become obsessed with specific shows or movies, some even memorizing dialogue and repeating it over and over. I recommend no more than 2 hours per day of screen time, which includes, TV, videos, video games, computer use, and smart phone use. It's best to encourage kids to interact with real people, not people on a screen

What is the latest findings for autism in kids?

Folate deficiencyt

Open-uri20130219-4865-19d0aqm
There is a great deal of exciting research going on within the field of autistic spectrum disorders. Recently, two studies have found a link between mothers with folate (an essential vitamin/mineral) deficiency and an increased risk of having children with autism. So, encourage any potential mothers-to-be to talk with their doctor about the possibility of taking a Folic acid supplement!

Dr. Johanna Fricke answered:

How dose autism affect a child going to school ?

Various factors

Physical_exam
Children >2 yrs. old with Autism are evaluated through the school district by a Multidisciplinary Team Assessment for levels of development & degree of Autism. Then parents & educators make an Individual Educational Plan, placing the child in the least restrictive setting + needed supports. Many kids who start in a pre-K "Autism classroom" progress to " regular ed" class + supports after KG.
