How Can Our Autism Treatment Help?

Autism, also known as autism spectrum disorder, is a group of neurological and developmental disorders that affects how a person interacts with others, communicates, learns, and behaves.

Although this condition can be diagnosed at any age, the symptoms usually start appearing within the first two or three years of life itself.

Autism means that your child could have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty in interacting with other people.
  • Trouble in understanding and using nonverbal forms of communication, like the use of facial expressions, eye contact, and gestures.
  • Delay or complete absence of language development.
  • Difficulty in understanding or making relationships.
  • Unusual or intense interests.
  • Repetitive motor behaviors, like body rocking, flapping arms, or repetitive play or speech.
  • Discomfort with any kind of change in routine.
  • Aversions to certain sensory behaviors, such as aversion to loud noises.

The different conditions that fall under the range of autism spectrum disorders include the following:

  • Asperger’s syndrome: Children suffering from this condition have average to above-average intelligence, but they face difficulties in social skills and have a small scope of interests.
  • Autistic disorder: This condition affects communication, social interactions, and play in children less than 3 years of age.
  • Childhood disintegrative disorder: Children having this type of disorder usually have normal development till at least two years of age and then tend to lose some or most of their social and communication skills.
  • Pervasive developmental disorder or atypical autism: This term is used for children who have some type of autistic behavior, such as delays in communication and social skills, but do not fit into any other category.

The severity of autism symptoms varies in each child and will determine how your child functions in day-to-day life. There is no treatment for autism, but certain behavioral interventions and therapies can help in reducing the symptoms of the condition and make the child more adaptive to the environment and people around him or her, as well as make them independent adults later on in life.

At Butterfly Learnings Center, we will prepare a holistic treatment plan for your child that focuses on all aspects of the child’s developmental and behavioral growth and improvement. It is best to start therapy for your autistic child at an early age so that the benefits of the treatment can help the child throughout his or her life.

If your child is showing symptoms of autism, you can contact our skilled therapists at Butterfly Learnings Center, who will be happy to help you. Our therapists will assess your child thoroughly and create an individual treatment plan for the child as each autistic child is different and shows different types of behaviors. 

Our therapists will offer personalized guidelines that will not just help in improving behavioral issues in your child but also help you manage your child’s condition more effectively and patiently.

Can my child’s autism be cured permanently?

However, certain autism treatment interventions can help in bringing about significant changes in your child’s behavior and general lifestyle. In fact, some cases of autistic children who receive early interventions show lesser disturbances in their behavior with an increase in age, and they may even lead a normal or near-normal life as they grow older.

Will my child’s autism treatment expenses be covered by insurance?

Although all private insurance companies in India do not include autism under insurance coverage, some insurance companies do include the condition under some special plans up until a specific age. It is best to ask your health insurance provider if autism is included in your child’s insurance policy, the extent of insurance coverage, and up until what age is it applicable.

What will happen if my child’s autism is not treated?

These behaviors can make it difficult for the child to express his or her needs, lead to sensory overload, cause frustration due to communication barriers, and make it difficult and frustrating for the child and the parents to lead a normal life.
