Lakewood, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/10/2014 -- Brainbuilders, the therapeutic intervention agency recognized for providing the advanced autism treatment Monmouth County families rely on to improve the lives of children who have been diagnosed with the disease, is pleased to announce that they have released a helpful guide to assist parents in determining whether or not their child has autism.
Autism affects one in 49 children in New Jersey. Signs that a child may have autism include no babbling by 12 months, no pointing or gesturing by 12 months, no single words by 16 months, no two word phrases by 24 months, the loss of previously acquired skills (especially language) and other unusual behaviors including restrictive, repetitive actions, interests and activities.
Children with autism may, for example, play only with one toy and engage in peculiar, sustained play activities such as spinning the wheels of a toy car instead of pretending to drive it, or dangling an object in front of their eyes for long periods of time. Some children with autism watch the same video repeatedly or focus intensely on a particular topic such as dinosaurs or vacuum cleaners, to the exclusion of any other interests. Individuals with autism can be very reliant on specific routines and may be so resistant to change that even a minor aberration in their daily routine causes them to become extremely upset.
