Remedies for autism in children
Each individual suffering with autism is different, and a different treatment plan must be customised to suit them. There is no standard treatment procedure for autism, and there exist several philosophies and techniques to treat them. Often, parents consult different therapists, while some prefer handling their child on their own. Many patients have other associated medical disorders such as gastrointestinal disorder, sleep problems, anxiety and seizures. Addressing these problems specifically help alleviate some symptoms and improve learning ability and attention span.
The paediatrician will suggest a specialist which deals in developmental disorders. Most often, behavioural therapy is the most important therapy undertaken. This type of early intervention improves the child’s behaviour in social platforms and learning ability. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a scientifically designed technique to teach the child new skills and improve behaviour. Other therapies are used in integration for the overall development of the child, such as music therapy, art therapy, and sensory integration. Sensory integration is useful in attenuating the child’s reactions to extreme sensory inputs and to help him understand the surroundings. Medications like antidepressants, antipsychotics and stimulants are used to manage behavioural problems like anxiety, hyperactivity and attention problems. Anticonvulsants help treating the seizures.
