G. Treatement for Autism
Is there a cure for Autism?
There is no such thing as ‘curing autism’. Autism is a lifelong condition. However, treatment options are available to help your child cope with autism and live an independent life. Therapy helps the child improve communication skills, social skills, and ease behavioral issues.
Will my child start talking?
ASD as the name suggests is a spectrum. The range of severity is vast and every child is different on the spectrum. Language delays are a common symptom and intervention is essential to overcome these delays. While some children on the spectrum may speak, others may not speak at all. The goal nevertheless is to help them be able to communicate, be it verbally through spoken language or non verbally through pictures/ assistive digital devices. These non-verbal methods have often facilitated verbal communication.
