Why Do Autism Children Make Barking Sound
Not researchers, who:
Have found that autism, like asthma & diabetes type i, has many genetic "set-ups" or epigenetic factors that alter function, but not structure or sequence of fetal genes. These impact fetal brain development in ways that allow "triggers" to cause signs of ASD
ASD are a spectrum of disorders of varying degrees that are characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 68 American children as ...Read more
Depends.: It depends on the type of noise. It could be normal dreams, sinus problem or people with obstructive sleep apnea will make noises, gasping for air as they have a very difficult time breathing or inhaling enough throughout the night. This is a serious medical condition that should be determined and addressed appropriately as this places extreme stress on the body. See a physician for evaluation. ...Read more
Question too vague: To gain the most benefit from the site your questions should describe a problem and ask a basic question. Your statement does not. If you have specific concerns about a treatment or long term outlook, please start over and ask them. As one with asthma in his background i think the outlook for today's patients is great. ...Read more
Joint Attention : Precedes social communication. Aba or denver model therapists apply intensive, repetitive behavioral & educational methods to elicit eye contact, a word approximation, sign language or a picture exchange before giving the child a desired object. Use ~ 10 minutes of "screen time" only to reward reciprocal social interactions.Don't anticipate his needs. Insurance companies pay, in most states. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Inflammation: Croup causes inflammation around the vocal cords, resulting in narrowing of the airway, a characteristic barking cough and respiratory distress. At night, your baby’s airway becomes even narrower, as the head scrunches down against the chest. Also, the baby is not actively clearing his secretions when sleeping, which can cause choking episodes. Dry air from a heater also worsens the cough. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
More awareness: There's more awareness & acceptance of this diagnosis. It's always been with us, ~5% of the us population, but it went undignosed in children for too long. There is no evidence that anything other than inheritance & neurotrauma (prenatal nicotine, alcohol, mj, Cocaine exposure; prematurity, inflammation, perinatal stress, multiple births, oxygen deprivation, or intrauterine malnutrition)are cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I go to college with someone with cerebral palsy. He has normal IQ but makes loud noises (he can't communicate with words) Why does he do this?
Hard to be specific: CP implies an injury to the nerves in the motor cortex of the brain that control motor functions. Half of the motor cortex is devoted to the muscles of communication, swallowing, etc. As a label it can be used for someone with minimal problems of movement & posture. It can also apply to someone with poor control of movement & their speech mechanism. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Autistic children have problems with social interaction and understanding of usual social skills. They often stare at people and objects almost too much, but may not look when being talked to or when trying to talk. Part of behavioral therapy is to help them understand how to use looking and attention in a more appropriate manner. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Do kids with allergies and eczema rashes have anything extra
to worry about when getting childhood vaccinations?
Not specificly: Decades ago when we gave the smallpox vaccine we didn't give it to kids with eczema & advised vaccinated people to avoid getting around them. The flu vaccine is avoided for those kids with major reactions to eggs. Otherwise, there are few if any issues with the newer vaccines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Think about it: These people work very hard to look special. Most of them are not abusing steroids, but have a healthy, often lonely lifestyle focused on building strength. Not everyone thinks massive musculature looks nice (some might even be jealous). But do you generally put down other people's achievements? Do you tell other athletes 'It's not worth it?' Instead, why not just say 'You must work hard.' ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How come kids don't snore but adults do? What changes happen to make us snore and why are some people louder than others?
Kids do snore too: But reasons for snoring in kids are bit different, although overweight/obesity with more fat deposition in the neck area is the main reason adults snore, in kids this is less common than enlarged adenoids that can block the airways partially and cause snoring. Either way, weight reduction if overweight/obese at any age is needed to control snoring together with treating the enlarged adenoids ...Read more
Unethical: A paper published several years ago linked autism to MMR vaccination. Since then many follow up studies and investigations have disproven it completely. The author of the original study was later found to have altered his results due to having financial gain out of such results. It is a sad case of unethical medical behavior which has caused much confusion. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

My child has high functioning autism but feels an urge to make weird sounds that he can not stop?
Sometimes: Children who go on to develop autism can experience an acceleration in the growth of head circumference around 6 to 12 months of age. Not that their head was large to start with, but that it grows faster than expected. However, the overlap between this and normal head growth is so large that it is not useful information as far as diagnosing a particular person. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Everyone different: Some do and some do not. A sneeze is a very forceful expulsion of air through your upper air passages. It is bound to make some noise. But that noise can be partially suprressed (as in a thriller movie) or completely over the top as in a good comedy. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
