Autism

The autistic state is characterized by the total retiring of a person into himself and shrinking into his own world.

The reasons of autism, i.e. withdrawal into some virtual reality, are mostly escaping from real problems. One should define an exact problem the person wants to escape from. It can be fear of the changeable society, communication with other people, failure to self-actualize, low or, vice versa, unreasonably high self-esteem, psycho-traumatic situations etc.

 Difficulties in the social sphere: a child is not interested in playing with other children or his family, or in any other interactions.

 

Communication problems: a child can have speech retardation; he/she is not able to repeat sounds after adults and to respond by smile when someone smiles to him/her. The kid does not show emotions by mimic at the age of over 9 months. Also, the child may not babble at the age of 12 months.  He/she does not have common gestures, such as pointing fingers, reaching out for something or for waving. At the age of 1 year the child does not respond when called by his/her name. There can be problems with eye-to-eye contact.

 A strange behavior (repeating motions):  for example, a child can spin, sway or arrange toys in one line during a long period of time.

Movement disturbances: problems with motion coordination and walking on the tips of toes.

Sensory problems: high sensitivity to noise, music, light, clothes, smells, and bathing.

 Digestive problems: diarrhea, constipation, inability to digest some food.

Integrated approach. Treatment of autistic children is made complexly and gradually and with obligatory control under the state of CNS applying methods of objectivization, in particular USDG, smart capillaroscopy, EEG; supplement the neurological, psychological, logopedic and pediatric examination.

Individual approach. Infantile autism is a quite popular permanent pathological disorder of mental functions in children. It could reveal itself in various forms and in various levels of the development. Thus, we couldn’t start treatment without integrated individual program.

Development of social relations. Socialization as one of medical factors in the complex treatment of an autistic child is based on basic pedagogical principles – individuality, gradualness, continuity.

Work with parents. Such work plays an extraordinarily role in the therapeutic program for children with autism. It is conducted by a psychologist. The work with parents is made in two directions. First – to teach parents to co-operate with the child taking into account his/her features and to correct psychoemotional state of the parents. The parents of autistic children often do not realise all depth of the problem at slightly expressed autism and can’t manage the situation at strongly expressed.
