Symptoms of Low-Functioning Autism:

  • Sensory sensitivities: Sensitivity to certain sounds, smells, tastes, textures, or lights.

Diagnosis of Low-Functioning Autism:

There is no single test for diagnosing ASD. Instead, doctors will use a combination of factors to make a diagnosis, including:

  • A medical history: The doctor will ask about the child’s development and any concerns that the parents or caregivers have.
  • A physical exam: The doctor will check the child’s overall health and development.
  • Developmental assessments: These assessments will measure the child’s language, communication, social skills, and cognitive abilities.
  • Behavioral observations: The doctor will observe the child’s behavior in a variety of settings.

Treatment for Low-Functioning Autism:

There is no cure for ASD, but there are treatments that can help improve the symptoms. Treatment may include:

  • Early intervention: Early intervention is the most effective way to help children with ASD. Early intervention programs can help children develop their communication, social, and behavioral skills.
  • Behavioral therapy: Behavioral therapy can help children learn new skills and change their behavior.
  • Speech therapy: Speech therapy can help children improve their communication skills.
  • Occupational therapy: Occupational therapy can help children develop their motor skills and learn how to cope with sensory sensitivities.
  • Medication: Medication may be used to treat some of the symptoms of ASD, such as aggression or self-injury.
