Autism is Treatable!

Autism now affects children more than any diseases or disorders combined. As of 2013, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 1 in 50 children is on the autism spectrum disorder. Boys are now five times higher than girls to be diagnosed with this disorder. One in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls are affected by autism. Individuals with autism can significantly improve their quality of life with various treatment programs. Autism does not have to be the prognosis of no hope, but of healing. Autism is treatable!

There are multitudes of reports suggest that thimerosal, live viruses,  aborted fetus tissues, aluminum, additives, toxins and other poisonous ingredients found in vaccines cause autism in some children. Food allergies, chemical sensitivity, viral or bacterial infections, environmental toxicity, etc., can contribute to the symptoms of this disorder as well.

Alternative or holistic medicine has healed many within the autism community by addressing their symptoms from a place of origin and establishing homeostasis within the body. The mind, body, and spirit must be all in sync. Many individuals with autism have many imbalances within their body caused by various factors.

Parents are given limited options or resources for their children with autism from the medical community. As a result, many individuals with autism remains stagnant. Many behavior therapists will not considered using flexible programs, such as Son-Rise, floortime or the Rapid Prompting Method. Many will dismiss these programs, despite their effectiveness and will stick to a rigid program.

Some programs such as the Son-Rise program work among the autism community in a positive and unconventional way. This program believes in joining in with those who have autism while they engage in self-stimulatory behaviors or what interests them the most. For example, if the individual is rocking back and forth, rock with them. When you get their attention, start connecting with them. Celebrate with a big cheer each time they connect or engage with you. This connection is an opportunity to teach those with autism social skills, academic, language, etc. The Son-Rise program also emphasizes on using excitement, enthusiasm, and energy while teaching them.

The Son-Rise program stresses the importance of having a nonjudgmental, loving and accepting attitude while working with those on the autistic disorder spectrum. Many children overcame autism as the result of the Son-Rise program.

Floortime is another great program that respects autism and believes in building relationships by  actively engaging with the population of individuals who have autism. The teacher or provider take an interest in what the child is doing  or what the child is experiencing. This method can be done anywhere in the house, outside, in the supermarket, etc.

However, it must be done at a convenience time and place for both the facilitator and the individual with autism.  Many individuals with autism have healed or gained a lot of skills through this method, such as language, academic skills, self care skills, social skills, etc. The individual with autism and the facilitator must have some type of rapport that is mutually enjoyable.

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) uses desirable reinforcements to get desirable behaviors to occur. Once the individual with autism achieves the desirable behaviors, they are rewarded with a reinforcer, such as preferred activities, preferred items, small pieces of food,  praises, etc.

This is called discrete trials. ABA can be a structured environment or flexible one, depending on the teacher or behaviorist. ABA  also uses prompting to show the individual with autism the desirable behavior during discrete trails, if necessary. ABA has incorporated many other techniques similar to the floortime or Son-Rise program to make it more child-centered.

The Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) is another program used to improve the communication skills and help achieve academic success to those with autism. According to RPM’s philsophy, “Despite behaviors, the academic focus of every RPM lesson is designed to activate the reasoning part of the brain so that the student becomes distracted by and engaged in learning.” Watch the 60 minutes video clip below on Rapid Prompting Method created by Soma Mukhopadhyay.

All of these programs must be flexible and not rigid. Individuals with autism should not adapt to a program, but the program should adapt to them. Autism must be respected. Beware of schools who do not want to see progress in those with autism because they can get more funding. Stay on top of your child education. Autism is treatable!

  • Ignorant attorney blames abuse against autistic man on autism itself. Wow. Just amazing. So now it’s the autistic person’s fault for being autistic. And any caregiver that abuses the severely autistic person must be under so much stress that these poor abusive caregivers need counseling and support. http://www.criminal-law-attorney.com/alleged-abusive-caregiver-has-troubled-past/

    Here’s response one person had to this disgusting attorney’s ignorance about autism.

    “It’s interesting that in the video clips shown of these abusive caregivers, in no clip is the autistic young man exhibiting behaviors that would give a caregiver an excuse to abuse the young man. In fact, upon careful analysis, which apparently you haven’t done, you see these caregivers are bothered by the autistic young man’s getting up and needing to be walked, comforted or cared for. Instead of comforting or caring for the young man, viewers see in these clips that the caregivers are busy texting on their phones, sitting and closing their eyes as if trying to sleep or watching a movie on their lap top. Good try Mr. Spital, in attempting to downplay and minimize the horrific abuse against severely autistic people in our community. But we aren’t buying it.”

    What’s next? Another ignorant attorney will pipe in and justify abuse against elderly people with dementia? Or bullying against people with Aspergers? If a caregiver can’t handle working with this population they should find another profession, not abuse the autistic person and then blame the abuse on the autism itself. Just sickening.

    The truth is abusive caregivers are often the ones you find wanting more pay, more hours, more shifts, etc…and stay in the position to collect a check. Then, when caught abusing, they blame the victim’s autism. Worse, abusive caregivers often stay in the position because they get off on abusing and controlling the defenseless autistic person.
