Another factor that causes issues to this disorder is immunizations. The ones that mostly affect is the immunizations that’s for measles, mumps, and rubella. These vaccines are generally safe, but they have serious side effects that’s very rare. Over a lifespan young children who have autism spectrum disorder at a young age go to an educational program that provides early interventions services before the age 3. Children can have early interventions at home where they get instructional setting at home or at school. Early interventions programs have features that will help young children with autism spectrum disorder. These children will go to early intervention programs 20 to 45 hours per week. The early interventions services provides plans that will help young children with this disorder apply skills and maintain their skills over time. The early interventions programs also make sure that these young children with this disorder have an active family involvement that will support them so it can help young children social and learning outcomes later in life. The early interventions services do ongoing assessments that will
1 in 68 people in the US have autism, this includes 1 in 189 girls and 1 in 42 boys. Autism is a difference in perception; technically it’s a developmental disorder that is the result of a difference in brain chemicals. Scientists don’t know what causes autism or why it’s stayed in the human gene pool for so long. People with autism could have a wide variety of symptoms, but some of the most common characteristics are fixations on things they like, reliance on routines,and lack of social skills. Autism can be formally diagnosed at ages as young as 3. There is no medical test to diagnose autism, rather a trained professional in the psychology field will perform a developmental screening and a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. When a child is diagnosed with autism, therapy is strongly recommended. The earlier treatment starts the better because certain aspects of the disorder can be lessened through therapy. Therapy helps the mind and the body, certain therapies can help rebuild your brain, so to speak.
Response to Intervention (RTI) is an in school service program designed to guarantee that all students are getting a high quality education. Before students are referred for special education services, it is essential that they receive effective teaching designed to meet their own learning requirements. All students in public schools are required to be included in the RTI program.

A meta-analysis of 35 studies examining the impact of adding psychosocial treatments in 4319 patients receiving OAT concluded that there is no value adding psychosocial treatment to OAT in treatment retention with a relative risk (RR) of 1.03. Similarly, there was no value found in adding psychosocial treatments to OAT over OAT alone in achieving negative drug screens with RR of 1.12. Moreover, there was no significant difference found in improving psychiatric disorders adding psychosocial treatment compared to providing OAT alone [Amato, Minozzi, Davoli, Vecchi, 2011].
Autistic children should feel motivated and should be able to achieve different goals by being provided with various interventions as an individual and his or her support group. Children that are diagnosed with autism should get early intervention as early as possible in order to get better results by knowing the age group the autistic child is in the more intense the program can feel by the amount of hours that are being offered for the ASD child. The more hours the more change and improvement the parents and the child care center will see from the child with autism. When working with children that have autism there are many different ways to approach to the child so the child feels
The CSE training program (Therapeutic Intervention). This program will be modified from Jacob and colleagues (2014). It is designed for the intervention group to control and stabilize the spinal structures including deep muscle and spinal vertebrae for decreasing back pain and enhancing the physical function of the spine (Kim & Yoon, 2015; Shamsi, Sarrafzadeh, & Jamshidi, 2015). Therefore, the CSE training program could be described as the reinforcement of the ability to enhance the stability of the neutral spinal position. The CSE training program is a 4-week program including supervised exercise training and home-based exercise training. The core exercise of the CSE training program focuses on 3 components of spinal stabilities as following:
The intervention most interesting to me in the Behavioral Therapy approach is the contingency contract. If used properly with defiant or rebellious children or adolescents the reinforcement rewards would be a motivating factor for change. Shapiro, Friedberg, and Bardenstien (2006) report, when developing a contingency contract the contract should be written so the child understands what is in it and it is age appropriate and fair for both parents and the child. Therefore, when the child is improving and making progress with their behavior in school for example the parents must reinforce their positive behavior with the agreed upon token of appreciation. Shapiro et al. (2006) reports, often when parents enter counseling with their child
Furthermore, if a child with autism or any other related disabilities, is placed into a program that respects them it can be positive experience. As ABA, has been proven to be the most successful therapy for autism, I believe it is the best chance that child has to learn. Also, it is the best chance for parents to learn how to help them. It is extremely important to do thorough research on the programs out there, as they are all different, finding the most compatible one is imperative to each child’s success and
In the search for a treatment that will help someone with autism, it is important to remember that no one idea will cover all the bases. A parent or primary caregiver will come to know through observation what are the child's strengths and weaknesses. These observations can then be used in conjunction with some treatment options to create a treatment program that is unique and specific to the child's needs. Whatever the decisions are, it will require a strong determination to stay focused, persistent and consistent. This may also mean cultivating patience as results may come slowly at
There are many different treatments provided for individuals with autism and it will most likely be a part of the intervention plan. From the Autism Speaks website, structured and therapeutic activities are provided, at least 25 hours a week. There will also be learning activities to help with their ability to learn. Instead of giving the individual random treatments, the therapists will give them treatments that are for their needs. (Autism Speaks,
Research by Pharoah, Mari, Rathbone, and Wong (2008), suggest that family psychosocial strategies and interventions can be beneficial for both the individual diagnosed with schizophrenia and their families. According to Pharoah et al. (2008), the main benefits of such interventions are decreasing the risk of relapse, medication compliance, and lessening family burden, along with possibly reducing re-hospitalization or length of hospital stays.
Central Idea: Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability that affects very many children in the United States today. Although there is no cure for autism, through early intervention, and proper therapies it can reduce the child’s ASD symptoms and improve their ability to grow and learn new skills.
I am very passionate about working with kids with autism. They have such amazing personalities and I feel like people don’t see past the disability to the unique person they are. For several years I worked at a residential facility for kids on the spectrum. I was a direct care staff that worked one on one with them to work on their goals their treatment plan was focusing on. My passion to help kids with autism comes from my previous experience working with these kids and watching them grow and learn new skills. This transformation that I watched happen and helped be a part of with these kids made me want to help more kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). There are a lot of skills that need to be taught to these children. Socialization, communication, and positive behavior are just a few kids with autism need help improving. I believe that the earlier that you teach a child these skills the more successful they will be. Early intervention has had a positive outcome within many research experiments that professionals have done. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (2004) also requires schools to teach kids with disabilities alongside typically developed kids as much as possible.
