Autism Treatment Center with Advanced Therapies for Autistic Kids of Age 2-17

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication and social skills of a child. There is no specific cause of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Research suggests that autism develops in a child at a very early age due to a combination of genetic, non -genetic, and environmental factors. In fact, genetics can be a prominent factor in the development of autism. The early a child receives autism therapy from a reputable autism treatment center, the better the improvement a child will show.

What Does Cause Autism in a Child?

When it comes to genetic factors of autism, a 2012 study shows that a child is 2 to 20% more likely to develop a pervasive developmental disorder if an older sibling is diagnosed with autism. On the other hand, environmental causes of autism often include the child’s developing conditions in the womb.

For instance, the advanced parental age of conceiving a child, prenatal exposure to air pollution or pesticides, or an accident that causes brain injury to a child – are all possible risk factors of autism.

A child who is born without autism is unlikely to develop autism at a later age. Autism is diagnosed only at an early age. However, parents should focus on getting their autistic children the best autism treatment instead of focusing on the cause of autism.

Can Autism Be Diagnosed with Medical Testing?

It is important for parents to realize that autism cannot be diagnosed with medical testing or genetic testing. A health professional such as pediatrician, a psychologist, or autism specialist can diagnose autism only by assessing the behavior and developmental milestones of a child.

Here is what is included in the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder in a child:

  • The presence or absence of certain behaviors, such as social communication problems, restricted interests in activities, repetitive behaviors, etc.
  • Assessment of developmental milestones, such as interviews with parents about child development history, speech and language, and psychological testing
  • Specific patterns of social, communication, behavioral, and sensory challenges

No blood tests, brain scans, or genetic tests can help in definitive diagnosis of autism. However, medical testing can identify genetic disorders such as Fragile X syndrome or metabolic conditions that lead to overlapping symptoms.

What environmental factors can increase the risk of autism?

Several environmental factors can increase the risk of development of autism in infants. Note that environmental factors play only a marginal role in the risk of developing autism. These environmental factors include:
