Symptoms of autism in two-year-old

Ø      Symptoms of autism in children


    Two-year-olds, does autism affect the nature of the lives of infected children? Normally, two-year-olds have enormous potential to do many activities, such as playing, using language and communicating with others to meet needs rather than using signals, and when they start learning vocabulary, they repeat them briefly and then reformulate them with new sentences.


    In severe autism in children, a child may not be able to learn to communicate visually and talk to others, but some are able to live normally with the surrounding community.


Ø      Behavioral symptoms


     What is the reason behind the lack of visual communication between the injured and those around him? Behavioral patterns in autistic children are often intuitive, as they differ from the typical behaviors of other un infected children, so parents should distinguish these behaviors that appear as follows:


  • ·  Unusual physical behavior such as swinging, clicking fingers and buzzing
  • ·      to calm themselves down and keep focusing.
  • ·      Lack of visual communication during conversation.
  • ·      He may hit his head, and such harmful behaviors must be controlled by parents.
  • ·      Having difficulty focusing and understanding quick speech.
  • ·      Create noise and inconvenience and usually have for some reason.


    Scientists say that the lack of visual contact is a method performed by the patient due to brain hyperactivity that occurs in response to the unpleasant feeling he may experience.


Ø      Problems communicating with others


    Is it easy for parents to understand what their injured child wants? Social problems are one of the most common symptoms in autistic children, and examples of social issues related to autism include:


  • ·      He doesn't respond when he hears his name at the age of 12 months.
  • ·      He likes to play alone.
  • ·      He doesn't care about interacting with others, and if he does, it's for his own personal purpose.
  • ·      He doesn't understand the meaning of the limits of others' personal space.
  • ·      Avoids physical contact.  It's hard for him to understand other people's feelings.
  • ·      Parents have an understanding of the social behaviors of their autistic child, whether it's showing their feelings, being oversensitive to things or depression.


Ø      Speech problems


    Do speech problems affect a child's ability to express grief or joy? Communication and pronunciation patterns vary in autistic children, as 40% of them never talk to people around them, and about 25%-30% of children are found to have the ability to repeat certain words at the age of 12 to 18 months and then lose them altogether, and the most prominent speech problems in the infected child are:


  • ·      Low level of language and speech skills.
  • ·      Repeat some of the words heard over and over again with an echo-like representation.
  • ·      Contrary to pronouns, for example, he says "you" instead of "me" and vice versa.
  • ·      Answers that have nothing to do with the question before him.
  • ·      He speaks in a robot-like voice or in a song style.


    An infected child has difficulty speaking what he feels and understanding other people's expressions, and sometimes his facial expressions may not match what he says, such as smiling and saying something sad.


Ø      Symptoms of autism

     For all ages, are the symptoms of autism similar to all people with autism? Autism symptoms are similar among children and other age groups such as adults, all of which revolve around social communication activity and behavior, and are among the most common symptoms in adults:


  • ·      Difficulty starting the conversation.
  • ·      Difficulty in forming social relationships and friendships.
  • ·      Discomfort while looking and communicating with the eye.
  • ·      Repeat a particular topic, and mention it in the same monologue way.
  • ·      Excessive discomfort of sounds or odors.  Preference for isolation and individuality.
  • ·      Difficulty interpreting facial details and expressions.


    Although there are some common symptoms, symptoms do not necessarily resemble among all infected people as they can vary from person to person.


Ø      Diagnosis of autism in children


    Are there specific laboratory tests to diagnose autism? Early diagnosis of autism disorder in children contributes significantly to the management of the condition, but it is not easy for the doctor to make the appropriate diagnosis, as there are no laboratory tests through which to assess the condition, so the doctor monitors the child's behavior, as well as a range of questions asked to the patient's parents, including:


  • ·      Did your 6-month-old smile?
  • ·      Did he represent the facial expressions he sees at the age of 9 months?
  • ·      Do unusual behaviors recur?
  • ·      Is there a problem when you have eye contact with the baby?
  • ·      Does he communicate well with people?
  • ·      Do they react to attempts to get their attention from those around him?
  • ·      Does he have any sensitivity to light, noise or heat?
  • ·      Does he have any digestive or sleep problems?


   The role of the parents of the infected child is the most important role in starting the diagnosis and treatment of autism, as the mother notices a defect in her child's development, strange behavior patterns such as overfocusing on a particular doll and avoiding visual and interactive contact with people around him, adds Dr. Connie Cassari, an expert in child development sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles: " Parents' fears begin with autism before the completion of two years, and diagnosis of symptoms can be made by the second year, but no symptoms may appear. At this age, it appears afterwards."


     When treatment there are differences in the views of doctors but all are clinically applicable, with the aim of finding a solution to the basic problem of autism, but it begins with parents early detection of their child's injury, and then doctors deal with all the views put forward and clinically studied to choose treatment in proportion to the parents and the condition of the child diagnosed.


    Doctors find it difficult to diagnose autism disorders because there are no laboratory tests to help with the diagnosis, so the doctor deliberately diagnoses the patient's history and behavior.


Ø      How does an autistic child distinguish from other children?


     Does autism determine the nature of a child's social activity? Autism is a disorder that appears in early childhood before a child reaches 3 years of age, and is usually difficult to diagnose, but children with autism can be distinguished from those who are not infected, as autism symptoms are focused on difficulty in visual and verbal communication, as well as palpitations in the arm, and the lack of activities and events that other children of this age care about.


Children with autism face difficulties in social interaction and relationships and friendships, while most un infected children do not.
