Autism can be located within the neurodevelopmental disorders that is characterized by alterations that are related to communication and social interaction.

This disease is also known in some countries as "the bell jar disease" due to the isolation that characterizes it. The child who suffers from it has a profound inability to relate to other people, even with their parents; relationship with the outside and it is as if it were enclosed within itself, to the point that it does not react even to the sharpest physical stimuli, such as the heat of fire.

Since this disease was discovered (in 1943) many theories have been developed about it, especially psychological ones, trying to discover what causes it; But what is known, at least today, is that it is not caused by parental behavior and that it is not a reaction to environmental factors either.

The autistic child requires a lot of vigilance, since he is in constant danger. He is capable of putting his hand on fire and even burning himself and remaining indifferent to pain, and since he is unpredictable, he may very well suddenly jump into the street and be hit by a car.

Autism is difficult to detect when the child is still very young. Because you do not react to sounds, for example, it can give the impression that you have a problem with your hearing. An attentive mother can notice that her son never smiles, that he does not seem to be interested in anything or anyone around him, that he does not extend his arms to be held and above all, that he always seems absent, with a "gone look. ".

The disease becomes evident when it is observed that the child does not begin to speak at the appropriate age. By then it is also possible that she already spends hours playing alone.

The autistic child develops rituals, such as touching or holding certain things in a certain order, or almost compulsively rocking in a rocking chair, and if he is interrupted in any of the sequences, he can give a fit of anger. This is because the autistic person needs to surround himself with an unalterable environment and to corroborate it, he passes his hand over things. Sometimes it can also happen that you spend hours looking at your own hands or fingers.

What can be done?

Autistic children are often sent to special schools from a very young age. In case the child becomes aggressive, painkillers are provided to control her aggressive behavior. Children who suffer from this pathology are recommended to be treated by psychoeducational therapies, which are provided by professional psychiatrists, psychologists and have proven to be very effective. One of these therapies is the one that recommends holding the child for long periods of time to develop a physical and emotional bond.

When autism is treated from the beginning, symptoms usually improve significantly, even develop social skills and adapt their behavior.

One of the factors of great importance for children with autism is that parents accept the condition of their children and love them as they are, that they do not impose and force them to do things that children do not want to do.
