Quotes on Autism Awareness to learn more about Autism. One thing is for sure, Autism is not hereditary. Then, why is it that the children are born Autistic?
I would like to share a fact that I have observed while being with an Autistic child.
Disclaimer: I am not a medical expert nor am I a psychiatric expert. This is merely a practical experience I observed while being with Autistic child.
Fact: My brother has an Autistic daughter. She speaks very little in a vernacular language. I have seen her brought up with the television ON around her all the time. She kept on listening to English cartoon channels. When she grew up to age eight her motor skills were also very slow.
When I played badminton with her she could respond very well, because I constantly prompted her to concentrate and hit the shuttle while we were playing and she could do it. Similarly, while playing catch-catch with a tennis ball she could catch it as kept on telling her to look at the ball before you actually catch it and do it many times.
She uses very difficult English words when we communicate in English more comfortably than her vernacular language. We speak in English whenever I visit my brothers place.
My Personal Experience: Her (Child’s) both the parents speak very little with each other and also very little with the child. They hardly fight with each other being a husband and wife. Constant communication with the child and asking them to respond to your questions is very important to conquer Autism.
