WHAT IS AUTISM
Autism is a multi-faceted neurobiological condition affecting a child’s development of language, social interaction, and behavior.
Children on the spectrum may have challenges with socialization, verbal or nonverbal communication, narrowly focused interests, and repetitive motor movements termed “stimming.”
Individuals who suffer from autism are affected differently and can vary widely in their level of functioning. They may be extremely gifted or severely challenged in thinking and learning abilities.
The phrase “autism spectrum disorders” or “ASDs” refer to a group of related developmental disorders usually identified in early childhood. They include autistic disorder, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), Asperger’s syndrome, and two less common disorders, Rett disorder, and childhood disintegrative disorder.
Children who suffer from autism tend to avoid eye contact and do not have much interest in faces or facial expressions. They may struggle with hyperactivity, sleep problems, temper tantrums, rigid routines, a dislike of tastes or textures that manifest as finicky eating, and gastrointestinal issues.
Some may be over-stimulated by lights, odors, noises, and textures as well and display troubling violent behaviors. They may injure themselves or others by biting and hitting or striking themselves in the head. Both the child’s and the family’s well-being benefit from consistent treatment.
AUTISM DIAGNOSIS AND EVALUATION
A diagnosis of an ASD is typically based on standardized criteria for developmental problems with socialization, communication, and behavior assessed during a clinical evaluation by a licensed psychologist. An official Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) examination consists of a 30-60 minute protocol with a series of tasks that involve social interaction between the examiner and your child. An official diagnosis is necessary to receive state or school resources.
If your child is younger than three years old, contact the Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) online or at (602) 532-9960. A contracted psychologist will conduct a free evaluation and may qualify your child for important ongoing services.
If your child is three or older, you can request a free evaluation from your local school district, which can qualify the child for state-funded, home-based services by the Arizona Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Contact the DDD at (602) 542-0419 (or toll-free at 1-866-229-5553).
If you are a parent seeking a second opinion to compare to your school district’s evaluation, reach out to Dr. Oskin. He may be able to refer you to an independent licensed psychologist in your area.
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT FOR AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS
Common treatments for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) include Applied Behavioral Therapy (ABA), Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy which can be of great benefit by teaching children complex communication, social, play, and self-help skills.
Speech therapy often improves the common challenge of language development that children with autism face. Many children with ASDs have difficulties with fine-motor skills and low muscle tone so occupational therapy can help to improve function. The Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC) and the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) are excellent resources for ABA and other therapies.
Conventional medical (drug) treatments for autism have not been shown to be effective and there is a lack of scientific evidence to support the use of psychiatric drugs for children suffering from autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). A study published in the journal Pediatrics found only one piece of evidence to support using antipsychotic medications for challenging and repetitive behaviors in children with ASDs, and there is strong concern over significant adverse side effects from drugs like risperidone and aripiprazole.
Due to this concern, those drugs are limited to patients with severe impairment or risk of injury. Other medical treatments like SSRI’s (anti-depressants) and stimulant medications (like Ritalin for ADHD) in children with ASDs also lack significant scientific evidentiary support.
