How Can You Avoid Repetitive Behaviors in Autism?

Repetitive behavior is something that Alex does daily. More especially with numbers and phrases…almost to the point of getting angry if he thinks we don’t hear him. We have tried, and still trying to break this cycle. It does get irritating and monotonous, but we never want to start tuning him out. He does show a lot of social skills and independence in some areas, so we don’t want to discourage that, either.

Preparing for the Future When Your Child Has Autism

Most capable adults take their ability to plan for the future for granted. When we are younger, we can dream and aspire to be what we want. To prepare for that, we study hard or gain skill.

Later, we have children, and we pass this trait on to them.

But, what if our children don’t have the capacity that we have, and have challenges? What can we do? What would you do?

What is Autism?

 

“Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. We now know that there is not one autism but many types, caused by different combinations of genetic and environmental influences.” – Autism Speaks.org

Signs of autism usually become apparent around the age of 2 or 3, with one or more of the signs mentioned above. Early intervention and diagnosis is essential, as well as early treatment. Hand in hand with treatment and education, there are many support groups out there…so that you and your family don’t have to be alone in this, and help you realize there is still a bright future ahead.
