I.3.2 Is our child suffering from autism?

In recent years, more and more people are paying attention to autism, which actually reveals the following multiple phenomena that may exist at the same time: First, in the years before and after nursing children until they go to kindergarten, more people feel that their children are not acting normally , tend to be so skeptical when there is no clear reason for it. Second, the child's language ability is particularly weak, and the child is ill from the information provided on the Internet and relatives and friends. Third, autism is attributed to the child's unintended behavior because of congenital factors (family medical history or problems with the pregnancy). In addition to the three typical phenomena mentioned above, there are many other reasons that make it easy for new parents to suspect that their children have autism. Autism is a symptom clearly defined and classified by WHO, and it has one very important feature: significant difficulties in understanding and expressing emotions, both difficult to understand others and difficult to express oneself. Specific symptoms include: social interaction impairment (significant problems with verbal or non-verbal communication), stereotyped, repetitive, incoherent behavior or movements, and markedly narrow interests, often accompanied by mental retardation. If parents or kindergarten teachers guess that the child has "autism" just because the child's language development is delayed and it is suspected that social interaction is difficult, then it is really necessary to beware of misjudgment! Because the lack of verbal stimulation during the child-feeding process can easily lead to delayed language development (see I.1.3 Important methods to promote the development of children's language ability), and the lack of social interaction before the child enters the kindergarten, coupled with the emotional expression of children around three years old. are prone to misjudgment. Parents should stick to the belief that "no one knows their young children better than they do"! You can firmly "one-vote against autism" if the child has the following conditions: the child can distinguish between the joys and sorrows of parents and other intimate caregivers, this does not require the use of language, the child can understand when you are happy and sad ! Also ask parents to keep in mind: a cold usually leads to a sneeze, but it does not mean that a sneeze is a cold! Children are small and their individual development is different. It is safest to observe more and seek reliable expert advice! At the end of the day, parents should not rashly label their children with "autism" because they are eager to solve immediate problems, because this label may have long-term negative effects and must be carefully avoided. If the child is diagnosed as "autism" after a period of time separated by multiple experts (in order to avoid the child's emotional instability and the error caused by the potential mistakes of the experts), then seek proper treatment through formal channels as soon as possible, so that the child can be cured. Get rid of the influence of symptoms as much as possible, try your best to adapt to normal social development, and do your best to integrate into mainstream society. On the other hand, even if a child is diagnosed with autism, it may still belong to "high-functioning autism" or Asperger's disease, which is a person who is inherently intelligent and has a high cognitive ability. According to historical records, it is speculated that Newton, Einstein and Jobs may all be children with Asperger's disease. In recent years, more professional research materials have revealed that many geniuses or talented people have some personality weaknesses that are different from ordinary people, such as being more impulsive or withdrawn, excessive pursuit of perfection and so on. It seems that even if diagnosed with "autism" is no big deal, no one is perfect by himself. isn't it?
