Characteristics for Autism

Characteristics for autism are many. A high functioning person with autism may have fewer characteristics then another.

According to the Mayo Clinic, autism is a brain disorder that is associated with a range of developmental problems, mainly in communication and social interaction. Also, according to the Mayo clinic, there is no cure for autism.

However, according to my research and resources, you can certainly give the body what is needs, take away what it doesn’t and see how the body can cure itself.

Characteristics for Autism may include:

  • delayed speech or loss of acquired speech
  • lack of eye contact
  • impaired or non-present social skills
  • shyness
  • repetitive behavior
  • delayed gross or fine motor skills
  • may be unusually sensitive to light, sound and touch
  • not responding to one's name
  • quick, involuntary muscle jerks
  • resists cuddling and holding
  • develops specific routines or rituals
  • Performs repetitive movements, such as rocking, spinning or hand-flapping
  • develops specific routines or rituals
  • becomes disturbed at the slightest change in routines or rituals
  • moves constantly
  • may be fascinated by parts of an object, such as the spinning wheels of a toy car
  • seizures
  • inflexibility with transitions
  • often unexplained, significant mood changes
  • food allergies and eczema,
  • general gastrointestinal distress
  • constipation and diarrhea
  • yeast overgrowth
  • high levels of toxins in the body
  • immune system disfunction
  • sleep disturbances
  • auditory and visual hallucinations

Not everyone has every characteristic and not to the same severity. This is here to give you an idea of some of the autism characteristics.

It is so very important to get checked by a medical professional but just as important to take responsibility and follow good eating practices. I have spoken with a number of parents that totally support the need for good nutrition. They notice a difference immediately when the child with autism eats  vegetables as opposed to snack foods. So be sure to review Autism and Diet for further details on how to take the first step.
