What is Autism? What Causes it and What are it’s Symptoms ?

The Autism Society of America defines Autism as “a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting, development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills.”

A medical diagnosis for Autism is made by recognizing patterns of behavior in infants and early childhood which indicate impairment of social interaction. Psychological assessments can be useful; though, they cannot be used to deny or confirm autism.

Both adults and children with autism usually show challenges in non-verbal and verbal communication, leisure or play activities, and social interaction.

A normally intelligent child with mild autism would be at one end of the spectrum while at the other end of the spectrum would be a child with severe pervasive autism and learning difficulties.

Since the 1980’s, a ‘spectrum of autism disorders’ has been acknowledged widely. Autism is a severe and pervasive developmental disorder.  It falls under the umbrella of pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), a category of neurological disorders characterized by “pervasive and severe impairment in many areas of development.”

While no one knows exactly what causes Autism spectrum disorder, scientists think that both environmental and genetic factors might play a role.

Causes of autism are very diverse and may include viral and genetic factors and chemical exposure.

In some cases, metabolic disorders are considered important factors in autism as well. There are some cases where a child with autism are known to have problems with copper or lead metabolism.

An important role in the suffering of patients with autism are food allergies. Could autism symptoms be related to food. Studies have shown that many autism patients on a casein free diet and or gluten free diet improve.

Epigenetics. Based on research, autistic changes may be precepitated by epigenetic changes, induced either by mental, physical, chemical (exposure to food colors, pesticides, pollutants, preservatives, etc), nutritional stress (deficiency) during pregnancy, biological (infections) or vaccination afterwards. Different causes may be applicable in different cases, since autism is a ‘syndrome.’
