Autism and DNA
Does your child has difficulty in speaking? Is a slow learner? Has difficulty in mixing up with other kids? Play alone? If these are the few characters you see in your child, get checked for Autism. It is not an illness, but a developmental disorder.
Autism or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a group of developmental disorders that can cause social, communication, and behavioral problems. These issues vary in severity between individuals.
It is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others.
Autistic people see, hear and feel the world differently to other people. If you are autistic, you are autistic for life; autism is not an illness or disease and cannot be cured. Often people feel being autistic is a fundamental aspect of their identity.
Its diagnosis is the formal identification of autism, usually by a multi-disciplinary diagnostic team, often including a speech and language therapist, paediatrician, psychiatrist and/or psychologist. There may be many different factors that make a child more likely to have ASD, including environmental, biological, and genetic factors. In some cases, a person carries a genetic variant that is a known risk factor for autism. Genetic testing can reveal these factors.
A pair of genetic tests could help parents and doctors confirm if the child is autistic and what caused autism. If the child suffers from autism, it means he carries the mutations for autism and that this disorder might have come from the previous generation and can be passed onto the next generation.
