The current methods of diagnosis rely essentially on subjective criteria but the new discovery allows us to move out of the circle. The new method provides a more objective, accurate diagnosis of the disease zeroing on the neurological impairments. It measures the tiny fluctuations in the motion of impulses and maps the difference in timing from that of healthy kids. The symptoms of autism usually appear quite early in a child’s life but deciphering them as signs pertaining to autism specifically. Now when the process locates the symptoms and designates the nature of intensity or the level of severity the patient is suffering from, it automatically becomes easier for the physician to take actions and start off with the treatment immediately thereafter. The research therefore fastens the process and makes life easy.
To go about the treatment
In fact, the doctors say the research changes the way autism affected kids behave or communicate with people or the society at large. With positive outputs like behavioral development, inhibition free interaction with those apparently tagged as normal quick and healthy improvements can be graphed in the developmental pattern of the autistic kids much to the relief of their parents and care givers.
A group of non-verbal children were taken to undertake the total process of tests. The kids were exposed to a hoard of digital medias like videos, music videos, cartoons, video caricatures of their own selves. It was slowly observed that all the kids started adapting themselves to the medium of expression that suited their personality best. What came out naturally and seemed magical to the parents was the fact that the kids understood how to condition their bodies to deliver or convey their thoughts. The process of neurological impulses flowing from the brain to the different sensory sectors and the elaborate process of cognition was gradually seeping into their system bringing in glimpses of hope and happiness to their parents, care givers and physicians.
The strength of the impact
Professor Anne M Donnelan, the director of USD Autism Institute at the University of San Diego, affirms this research to be truly ground breaking. He also says it is bound to have a panoramic impact on the wide vistas of brain sciences. The unique perspective takes this wing of scientific research a step ahead in its agenda of providing the kids affected with Autism, which is rendered incurable, the kiss and promise of a smoother and healthier life.
