Autism is a brain development disorder that is characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior, all starting before a child is three years old. 

Many children show signs of autism in early infancy.Other children may develop normally for the first few months or years of life but then suddenly become withdrawn, aggressive or lose language skills they`ve already acquired. Children with autism generally have problems in three crucial areas of development. Social interaction, language and behavior.



Social skills 
- Fails to respond to his or her name 
- Has poor eye contact 
- Appears not to hear you at times 
- Appears unaware of others` feelings 
- Seems to prefer playing alone.  Retreats into his or her "own world"



Language
- Starts talking later than other children 
- Loses previously acquired ability to say words or sentences
- Does not make eye contact when making requests 
- Speaks with an abnormal tone or rhythm ? may use a singsong voice or robot-like speech 
- Can`t start a conversation or keep one going 
- May repeat words or phrases verbatim, but doesn`t understand how to use them


Behavior
- Performs repetitive movements, such as rocking, spinning or hand-flapping 
- 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 
- May be unusually sensitive to light, sound and touch and yet oblivious to pain


Causes:-

Homeopathic Treatment of Autism 
Homeopathy isn`t a "take this for that" medicine. Ten different autistic children might be prescribed ten different remedies. Choice of remedy depends on a child`s individual characteristics. However, there are some remedies that are more commonly used than others to treat children in this community. 

Autism, unfortunately, is a very serious condition and is not an easy cure. However there are definitely many cases of homeopathic autism cures. Although complete cures cannot be expected in most cases, the famous homeopath Dr. Bhardwaj, who treat autistic children are seeing significant progress in a majority of cases. If treatment begins early -- especially before age 5 yrs -- there is room for great hope! 

Even later treatment can find success. But you must have commitment and view treatment as a long term process that will take months and years, not days or weeks.
