Is it bad to have Autism?

Autism is only affecting someone’s behavior and most of their behavior is not harmful at all. An autism person may be obsessed with music or painting and then you can use their part of interest and let them becoming the best musician or painter.

According to a true story, a mother of autism boy identified that her son is obsessed with the solar system and surprising his pediatrician because he knew all 37 of Jupiter’s moons without been taught by anybody.

There is an element of genius in autism and this type of kids also teaching the parents to accept them for who they are and not what the parents want them to be. That is the priceless lesson because most of the parents do want their kids to follow their own rules without considering what they really want and capable of.

It is the way you manage and how you see it. Autism will be something negative to you if you seeing it negatively or it will be something positive because you see what your kids capable of and what are their true talents.

Is there any medication for Autism?

Autism is treated according to their behavioral issue. Behavioral therapies are always recommended to the parents because it is the way to build less abnormal behavior or to teach them to control their behavior so the abnormality is less visible.

The top core symptoms of autism are social challenges, communication difficulties or miscommunication and too much repetition in their behavior. These are the target of any pediatrician to improve the kids’ ability to communicate, behave and socializing. Some drugs may be prescribed but most of the time the treatment is all about  without using any drugs and let them learn as normal as they can to improve their skills.

Food and Drug Administration or the FDA has approved resperidone and aripiprazole as the medications that autism patient could take to control their irritability. By relieving the irritability, the drugs are potentially reducing the dangerous or uncontrolled behavior such as tantrums, aggressiveness and even self-injuries behavior that occur.

More good news will come up about autism treatment in the future because the researchers are  developing an experiment to help normalize brain functions in autism and the compounds are being tested to find every chance to improve their behavior normally reset it back to normal functions.
