General Information Treatment http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/treatment.html Symptoms Treatment http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/history-of-autism Discovery of Autism General information Inheritance Work Cited http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heritability_of_autism Gene Information Care Communication classes, physical therapy, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), (DTT), and (VBI) etc. Inheritance Autism is X linked and is four times more likely to be found in the male gender. Autism is not entirely genetic, however, it is recessive and the child has to inherit all the genes to be autistic. http://sfari.org/news-and-opinion/in-brief/2012/genetics-x-chromosome-gene-linked-to-autism-in-males Medication Give them ability to focus, help depression, seizure, or drugs that improve behavior. http://www.answers.com/topic/human-genetics http://sfari.org/news-and-opinion/in-brief/2012/genetics-x-chromosome-gene-linked-to-autism-in-males Pictures There have been no medications made to cure autism but there are many things that can help improve an autistic person. There are some studies that show that having children when your older or being ill during pregnancy can increase chances of the offspring getting this disorder. http://shiningthrough.ca/our-therapy/about-aba http://www.zazzle.com/aba_autism_therapists_teacher_christmas_ornaments-175473075170137820 General Information Research Outlook Research Outlook Recently neuroscientist have discovered a reason why people with autism have a hard time recognizing faces and others behaviors. It turns out that the neurons in our brains have a big impact on picking up how one face looks from another.There studies showed that the FFA, (fusiform face area) a section of the brain has neuron that read facial features. In people with autism the neurons are adjusted to greatly, which causes the problem. That is why it is hard for them to understand emotions. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/03/130318151530.htm http://astritlulushi.wordpress.com/2012/03/ http://justanotherpieceofthepuzzle.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/always-unique-totally-interesting-sometimes-mysterious/ http://www.ales4autism.org/ General Information Discovery of the Disorder For more Information . . . Pedigree How are carriers identified http://ici.umn.edu/products/impact/193/over4.html Before scientist and doctors recognized autism as a disorder they recorded is as different psychological conditions. Comes from the greek work auto meaning self. The word portrays a person who is isolated from social interaction. Gene Information To have autism chromosome 15 has to be shorter so there was an error copying and doesn't get caught. Around 1940's scientist in the United States used this term to describe people with emotional and social problems. 15 In 1960's researchers tried to use medication and tried to change behavioral traits In the 1980's behavioral therapy was being used and better learning environments were the common forms of care for autism. The gene name for autism is CHD8. Informational websites www.webmd.com http://nationalautismassociation.org/ Organizations The protein code for autism is MET. MET is involved in immune, gut regulation, the migration of neurons, and the formation of synapses. www.sciencedaily.com www.sciencenews.com http://www.autismspeaks.org/ Blogs No happy expressions at 6 months
No babbling at 12 months
No multiple word phrases at 24 months http://autismfriendlyspaces.com/ http://theautismhelper.com/ Prevention Kids with Autism are born with it and are usually diagnosed at the elementary school ages. The main challenge to early identification is there is not much know about autism. A major indicator is a child that doesn't always respond to there name or weak attachment to care givers. http://prezi.com/jxdnqbhcpl1d/edit/?auth_key=mg55d1p&follow=zrrprh16cp9y
