No fear of autism 4- Fear not even it is inherit
What is the cause of autism? What factors lead to the formation of autism? At present, there is no conclusion in medicine. However, there is sufficient evidence that autism has nothing to do with the family background and parental attitudes, nor is it caused by an acquired environment. The cause of autism has not been known so far. The only certainty is that: (1) So far no psychological factors have been found to cause autism (not due to lack of parenting or poor parent-child relationship). Physiological factors are the cause of autism. (2) There is no single physiological factor sufficient to explain all autistic symptoms, which means that autism is caused by a variety of factors.
In 1991, Folstein and Piven reported autonomic homozygosis in 82% of children with autism and 10% of dizygotic twins. Epidemiological investigation also confirmed that the prevalence of autism siblings was 3%, which was much higher than that of the general population and there was a family clustering phenomenon. Even though there are no similar patients in the family, similar deficits in cognitive function can be found, such as language delay, mental retardation, and learning disabilities, which all indicate the genetic basis of autism.
2. Neurological studies:
Many scholars have tried to explore the causes of autism from neurological studies. They found that 20% of children with autism have abnormal brain waves and 30% of children with autism have epilepsy in puberty.In a child with autism, the concentration of serotonin rises, and some of the children with autism have a dominant hemisphere that reverses to a situation in which the brain is not clearly lateralized, and there is also a part of the “brain stem auditory evoked potentials” that cause autism in children. Normally, these data show that abnormal brain function is closely related to the formation of autism, but its exact clinical significance is not yet clear.
Since the cause of autism has yet to be confirmed, the current study also points out that autism is not related to the family environment and parents’ education. Parents rather than looking for why their children have autism, it would be better to look forward to the future, to have their children seeking effective intervention and early assessment to receive the prime time treatment efficiently.[ #自閉症唔可怕 ] Playlist:
