How Can Our Autism Treatment Help?

Autism or autism spectrum disorder is a group of neuro-developmental disorders that impacts how a person interacts with other people, communicates, behaves, and learns. Autism can be diagnosed at any age, however, the symptoms of autism usually start showing within the first two or three years of a person’s life.

If your child shows one or more of the following symptoms, it could indicate that your child has autism:

  • Delayed or absent language development
  • Intense or unusual interacts
  • Difficulty in interacting with other individuals
  • Difficulty in making or understanding relationships
  • Discomfort due to a change in routine
  • Aversion to some sensory behaviors, for example, aversion to loud sounds
  • Repetitive motor actions and behaviors, like flapping arms, body rocking, and repetitive speech or play
  • Difficulty in using or understanding nonverbal types of communication, such as eye contact, facial expressions, and gestures.

Several conditions fall under the range of autism spectrum disorders, including: 

  • Autistic Disorder: This disorder affects social interactions, communication, and play in children who are less than 3 years old.
  • Asperger’s Syndrome: Children with this syndrome usually have average to above-average intelligence, but they face issues with their social skills and have a limited scope of interests.
  • Childhood Disintegrative Disorder: Most children with this disorder show normal development till approximately two years of age and then start losing some or most of their communication and social skills.
  • Atypical Autism or Pervasive Developmental Disorder: Children who show some kind of autistic behavior, like communication delays and lack of social skills, but do not fit into any autism spectrum disorder category are said to have atypical autism.

 

 

Autism symptoms will vary in severity in different children and will determine how a child lives his or her daily life. 

Although there is no definitive treatment for autism, some therapies can help control the symptoms associated with the condition to make the child more comfortable with the surroundings and turn them into independent and responsible adults.

Butterfly Learnings Center provides a holistic treatment approach for your child, focusing on all aspects of the child’s behavioral and developmental improvement. You should ideally start autism therapy sessions at an early age for your child to avail the benefits of treatment throughout the child’s life.

Techniques and Methods Used in Autism Treatment

Our skilled therapists at Butterfly Learnings Center use various therapy techniques and methods to help your child deal with specific behavioral and developmental issues associated with autism spectrum disorder.

Although autism has no specific treatment, some intervention techniques can help manage the symptoms of the condition and the autistic child to overcome the disabilities associated with the condition to lead a healthy and independent life.

The various techniques and methods we use to treat your autistic child include the following:

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

Behavioral interventions such as ABA therapy help autistic children understand the consequences of their behaviors and encourage them to avoid their unwanted behaviors.

ABA therapy uses reinforcement techniques to encourage positive behavior and discourage negative or harmful behavior. It involves rewarding the child for every good behavior displayed, and encouraging the child to repeat the same type of behavior in the future. Negative behaviors are discouraged, leading to the gradual decline and stopping of such behaviors.

Developmental Therapies

Our therapists work in close proximity with the child to help improve the different developmental aspects of their lives. The different types of developmental therapies that may be performed include the following:

  • Speech therapy: These therapy sessions help improve the language and communication skills of your child.
  • Physical therapy: The motor skills of the child can be improved by performing specific forms of physical therapy exercises.
  • Occupational therapy: This type of therapy helps autistic children improve their basic life skills in performing simple daily tasks like bathing, getting dressed, and eating on their own.

Play Therapy

The social and emotional skills of the autistic child can be improved using play therapy. The different techniques used in play therapy include:

  • Floortime play therapy: The teacher or therapist gets down on the floor to play with the child in this type of therapy.
  • Integrated play groups: Autistic and non-autistic children are made to play in a group to see how the autistic child can adjust, understand, and participate with his or her peers.
  • Joint attention symbolic play engagement and regulation (JASPER): This therapy encourages a child to have a good focus on a game or toy along with another person simultaneously. 

Social Skills Development

Our therapists help the autistic child to improve his or her social skills and emotional bonds.

Psychological Therapy

Some types of psychological therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, can be used in cases of autistic children with mental health problems, like depression and anxiety.

Complementary Treatments

Certain complementary treatments help boost the learning and communication skills of children with autism. Examples include art therapy, music therapy, and animal-assisted therapy, such as horseback riding.

Educational Skills Development

Our therapists will use fun and engaging techniques and activities to help improve the child’s learning abilities and performance in school.

Medications

The doctor may prescribe some medications to relieve autism symptoms, such as anxiety, hyperactivity, sleep disorders, attention problems, and seizures.

What Our Patients Say

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of autism treatment?

Autism treatment can be beneficial for your child in the following different ways:

  • Improved learning
  • Improved speech
  • Improved attention
  • Improved social and communication skills
  • Increased independence
  • Improved motor skills
  • Confidence to perform basic life skills like getting dressed, bathing, and self-feeding
  • Improved quality of life
Can my child’s autism disappear on its own?

No, an autism diagnosis will last for the entire lifetime of a person and your child’s autism will not go away on its own. 

Although there is no permanent treatment for autism, an early diagnosis and therapy interventions started at an early age can show drastic improvements in the behavior and symptoms of an autistic child.

In fact, many autistic people who start with therapies at an early age and continue with the necessary ongoing therapies can lead a normal or nearly normal life in adulthood.

Will insurance cover my child’s autism treatment costs?

Most Indian private insurance companies do not include autism under their insurance coverage. However, some insurance companies do include the autism condition under some special plans up until a specific patient’s age. 

You should talk to your insurance provider and inquire about their terms and conditions related to autism. If the condition is included in your policy, you should understand the maximum coverage amount and to what age is the coverage applicable.

Will autism symptoms get worse if left untreated?

When autism is left untreated, diagnosis is delayed, or the condition is misdiagnosed, the negative symptoms associated with autism can become worse over time.

Without proper help and treatment from parents and therapists, autistic children may not develop appropriate skills related to speech, language, or social interactions. This could lead to frustration for both, the affected child and the parents.

Our experienced therapists at Butterfly Learnings provide autism therapy sessions depending on your child’s preferences and requirements. We ensure that your child displays a significant improvement in autism symptoms to lead a healthy and improved quality of life.
