What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a term used for a group of disorders that hamper your child from communicating, socialising, and learning. 

ASD can be diagnosed at any age but if your child has it, you will be able to see the symptoms from the age of 2. That is why it is also called a developmental disorder, too. 

You need to remember that the abilities and needs of autistic children vary. Some may need little to minimal support but some others may need lifelong support. 

Autism can also hamper the education and job opportunities of your child if it is not treated at an early stage. 

Let’s learn about different types of ASD to understand it better.

Different types of ASD

Previously experts used terms like autistic disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). But now, all of these are called Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

Children with Rett Syndrome have similarities with autistic children and experts used to group them into ASD. However, in 2023 the experts have found that genetic mutation is the cause of Rett syndrome which is why it is no longer considered an ASD. 

Let’s have a look at all of them:

Asparagus Syndrome

Your child is on the milder end of the Autism Spectrum  Disorder if they have Asparagus syndrome. The child may be very intelligent and self-reliant while handling their daily life. 

They may be interested in a particular topic or object and talk about that without stopping and may not understand whether you are interested in the topic or not. The child may find it hard to acquire social skills. 

Pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS)

The symptoms of PDD-NOS are more severe than Asparagus syndrome. If your child has this disorder, they will have difficulties in social interactions, and verbal and non-verbal communication and may show repetitive behaviour and restricted interests.

Classic Autistic disorder

Classic autistic disorder is also known as Kenner syndrome. Children with autistic disorder may be smart, clever, and attentive. 

However, these kids may have difficulty forming emotional attachments with people. They may also have uncontrollable speech, difficulty in communication, and lack of social skills. The child may have an obsession with handling things and a high level of memory but may have difficulties in other areas of learning. 

Childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD)

It is the severest and rarest of the disorder in the spectrum. It has some common symptoms like a regression of developmental and communication skills.

Apart from that children with CDD have a lack of motor skills, bladder and bowel control, social skills and self-care, and expressive and receptive language skills (Receptive language skill means how your child understands language and expressive language skills mean how your child uses words to express their thoughts and emotions). 

What are the different signs & symptoms of ASD?

Your child’s ASD symptoms can be divided into 2 main categories of symptoms. One category shows the challenges and the other category shows their strength.  The doctors diagnose ASD by assessing these challenges and strengths and evaluating the differences in symptoms they have.

The early signs of autism may include: 

  • No eye contact or inconsistent eye contact.
  • Struggle to engage in a conversation where people take turns speaking and responding.
  • Issues with noticing or reacting when you try to interact with them.
  • Talking nonstop without paying heed to whether others are interested or not. 
  • Sensory sensitivity or getting over-aroused by external stimuli like light and sounds.
  • Struggle to understand others’ thoughts, viewpoints, and feelings.
  • May not engage in drawing people’s attention to things they find interesting or enjoyable. 
  • A flat tone of voice.
  • Easily gets upset by changes in routine.
  • Repeat words, behaviour, or phrases.
  • Too much interest in particular things. 
  • Problem in sleeping.

Along with these challenges, an autistic child may have some special qualities. Let’s check them:

  • They may have extraordinary memory for facts and figures
  • They may have high levels of motivation and interest in activities they love
  • They have a thorough knowledge of topics that they like
  • They may use innovative ideas to solve problems
  • They pay attention to details
  • They may be very accurate in tasks
  • When guided properly, they can follow the instructions accurately
  • They may have exceptional creative skills
  • May have the ability to think out of the box
  • May have a unique sense of humour
  • They tend to be honest, unbiased, and loyal in social relationships.

The doctors will diagnose using these challenges and the special qualities of your child. 

How is Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosed?

The doctors can diagnose ASD in a child from the age of 2 years. As a parent or elder, you should carefully monitor whether your child has reached all developmental milestones like walking without support, imitating elders, knowledge of shapes and colours, recognizing objects, and naming them. 

When you see that the child has signs of a problem and missing important milestones, you should immediately reach out to a doctor.

The diagnosis procedures for young children, older children, and adults are different. 

The doctors will diagnose ASD in your young child in two ways:

Step 1: screening for developmental delays

You should approach a doctor for screening of developmental delays if you see issues related to them at the age of 9, 18, 24, or 30 months. 

They may need additional screening if their chances of having ASD are higher as they have family members with ASD, showing typical ASD behaviour, or have certain genetic conditions. 

Step 2: Additional Diagnostic Evaluation

Doctors with experience in diagnosing ASD will do the evaluation. The team of doctors will evaluate your child’s cognitive abilities, language abilities, neurological abilities, and behaviour. They will then assess the child’s age-appropriate skills and how they complete them every day.  

The evaluation may also include blood tests and hearing tests because ASD is a complex disorder that can happen along with other learning disorders or illnesses. 

As a parent, you and your child’s teachers are the ones who will recognize the symptoms of autism in your older child. Older children may have issues understanding humour, the figure of speech, or sarcasm. 

They may have issues understanding body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice. When you notice these social and communication difficulties in your child, you should approach a doctor.
