H.O.W. To Help Children With Autism
Autism has been defined as a disability in which a child learns, behaves, and interacts in every day situations. Children with Autism often have difficulty interacting with other people, children and adults and when they learn how to speak they often repeat themselves. or repeat what others are saying to them. In terms of behavior, children with Autism usually repeat the same behavior as well. Sometimes a child will turn in circles, or repeat a particular movement.
Autism is a problem that many people cannot understand. It has nothing to do with a child's level of intelligence, but it is connected to communication. Children with Autism have feelings and needs but they do not understand how to tell others how they feel or what they need.
Some people think Autistic children have low intelligence, but that is not true. What is true is that our society is slowly starting to understand children with Autism and what they truly need. This understanding started slowly, but has started to grow.
The purpose of this hub is to show people H.O.W. to help children with Autism, not only on a personal level, but also on a global level.
When it comes to having a child with Autism it is important to know that social skills are difficult. Children with Autism are afraid of many people, because they simply don't understand them. One of the things that helps children with Autism is dogs. That is pretty interesting, because studies have shown that if a dog is given to a child with Autism, then that child's social skills increase more rapidly then a child who does not have a dog. Dogs are sweet and have no demands. Dogs allow children to make eye contact without making fun of them. It is pretty amazing to scientists, but not to me. There are more animals then just dogs who help children with Autism, horses are also able to help children with Autism to increase their social skills.
When it comes to a global issue, there is another way H.O.W. to help children with Autism. This is called the World Autism Awareness Day. The day is April 2, 2012 will be the 5th year that the World Autism Awareness Day was celebrated, by Autism organizations around the world.
