Early Signs Of Autism In Children?
Hello Doctor, I have two nieces, they are brothers and sisters, their siblings are still in par 2, their growth is the same compared to children in general, they are slow to talk and at this age they are still difficult compared to other children who should have been fluent, they are also hyperactive and very naughty and difficult to listen when rebuked when rebuked they will stop but after that they return like that. Is it normal for children or symptoms of autism and how to deal with children like this, thank you.
Hello, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
It is normal for children to move actively. However, parents should be suspicious if this makes it difficult to control their activities and reactions to events around themselves. This situation could be a symptom of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Symptoms of children with ADHD, among them can experience a lack of ability to focus attention (inattention) or can not be silent (hyperactive), and impulsive. Children with attention characteristics are easily distracted, often do not pay attention, and forgetful. While children with hyperactivity are often seen constantly moving, constantly talking, and difficult to be quiet and calm. Frequently interrupting other people's conversations or activities, impatiently waiting their turn and not having fear of danger.
Some ways to control it are:
- Creating order so that the child's life is calm and organized
- Implement positive discipline. Always give him affection by appreciating or praising himself when doing good actions.
- Creating a regular bedtime
- Foster healthy family relationships
We recommend that you consult further complaints with a child psychologist or psychiatrist to help you further.
