Autism and You


Autism and You

As a child develops inside the womb of a mother, he or she cannot basically do anything. Eating is all up to mother who, with the use of the umbilical cord, shares the nutrients to her child. When the child is born, he or she cannot see the word yet and thus is reliant on the people around him or her. Days will pass. The child will already be exposed to the world for a month. And after many months come many years, until the infant we once know becomes the adult that they are now.

Our own development works wonders in a lot of ways. But there are those children who develop differently than others and thus they need our understanding. In behalf of all these kinds of children living in Alaska, Bright Horizon Homes makes developmental disability care services in Kanabec Dr. Wasilla Alaska available. One case we are aware of is those children with autism. Growing up with this disorder is not easy. So as a parent or a stranger to someone with this condition, Bright Horizon Homes shares the facts about autism.

What is autism?

  • Autism is a developmental disorder.
  • This condition is pervasive overtime.
  • It involves an irregular development of the brain thus affecting its function.’

As we at Bright Horizon Homes carry on with our developmental disability care services in Kanabec Dr. Wasilla Alaska, we noticed that clients with autism display the following:

  • Decline of their social communication skills
  • Rhythmic pattern of manners and entertainments
  • Limited pattern of interests and behaviors

hat is the cause of autism?

For now, researchers, scientists and doctors are still unable to tell a single cause of the disorder. It is overall accepted that it may be because of an affected person’s abnormality in his or her brain structure. The brain scans of both children and adult with this condition is different than those that can be observed in neurotypical children.
