In the salon was a neighbour of mine Her name is Christine…..I know she has a son called Tom his now 14 years old..is autistic. I know him well. Coz when he was a kid he was riding his lil bike … whole day around our house… and when u tried to contact him……It was not possible… Its like ur talking to a wall..
Suddenly Christine cried ……
It was a waterfall She told us …. Tom was now in a special boarding school now…But the guy is not understood by teachers,,even by psychologists and psychiatrists..
He has no control over his attitude….. Well he succeed for 5 minutes Thats all. and in those 5 minutes he is loving and sweet but he cant control it ..After that he explodes over a stupid thing…..
Now the guy is fourteen he has a weight of 140 pounds. In weekends his home ….gets agressive .
Than he has no control of his actions……So his parents are so afraid his doing himseelf or others harm.
As a parents U want HELP……But when even specialist cant help…What to do.
I work in the Netherlands There are special houses for such kids……But painfully we live in Belgium and such
hospitals are not in the neighbourhood…..
I wanna explain Autism .. One Note TOM is now 14 years old and things gets worse….. for how long
before he gets hurt….
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults with autism typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities. One should keep in mind however, that autism is a spectrum disorder and it affects each individual differently and at varying degrees – this is why early diagnosis is so crucial. By learning the signs, a child can begin benefiting from one of the many specialized intervention programs.
