Navigating the Health Care System while still advocating for your child with Autism. 

December 9, 2021 | 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

So you have been told your child has challenges… What’s next?

Autism is a biological and neurological spectral disorder that typically appears during the first three years of life. It affects brain function and is a life long disability resulting in behaviors that affect both verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Symptoms include certain ‘trait’ behaviors and affected social development. This complex developmental disability is four times more common in boys than girls and occurs in 1 in 95 children born today.

Social, ethnic and racial factors have been shown as non-factors to the cause of this disorder. Autism is characterized by its early onset. Typical behaviors show up before the age of 36 months, but the symptoms are often masked during the first two years of life by developmental milestones. Autism is a spectral disorder that has a wide range of severity from person to person. Simply put, people afflicted with autism do not process what they see, hear and sense in a typical manner.

Experienced practitioners can usually detect autism in children by age 2, and sometimes by 18 months or younger. In young children, autism usually reveals itself in the form of delayed development in areas such as communication, play and social interaction.

While autism is a lifelong condition presenting a range of challenges, no outcome is a foregone conclusion. Every individual with autism experiences life uniquely, with different symptoms at different levels of severity. When addressed early in life, while the mind is still developing and malleable, symptoms or challenging behaviors can be managed more effectively to improve outcomes over the course of the child’s life.
