Hello. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Autism or what is known as ASD (autism spectrum disorder) is a child's developmental disorder that includes decreased language skills, communication, social interactions and behavior such as repetitive body movements. The cause of autism is not known with certainty. However, there are several factors that are thought to be related to the occurrence of autism, such as heredity (genetic), premature birth, exposure to chemicals, drugs or alcohol while in the womb, and environmental factors. Symptoms of autism vary widely in each child from the mildest to the most severe and these symptoms usually appear in the span of the first three years of life. Symptoms of autism in children aged 1-2 years include:

Cannot use personal utensils such as tablespoons, toys or drinking bottles
Unable to follow orders
Unable to speak

In general, children with autism have difficulty communicating, it is difficult to express their intentions or wishes through spoken language or body language. Therapy should be done as early as possible in order to reduce existing symptoms and prevent more severe symptoms. For this reason, consult your doctor directly so that a thorough examination can be carried out and the most optimal treatment. May be useful. Best regards, Dr. Shirly
