How can I find out what caused my child’s Autism ?


A question that confuses all the parents is the cause of autism for their child. Even though proper care is given during the pregnancy, many kids are under the spectrum. A recent survey of parents suggests that 1 in 45 children, ages 3 through 17, have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This is notably higher than the official government estimate of 1 in 68 American children with autism, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Causes of Autism were proposed by many but still understanding the theory of causation of autism spectrum disorders is incomplete.The exact cause of autism cannot be identified in most of the children with autism.Research shows that genetic factors predominate. The heritability of autism, however, is complex, and it is typically not clear which genes are responsible for the cause. In rare cases, autism is highly associated with agents that cause birth defects. few other causes have been proposed, such as childhood immunizations, but numerous epidemiological studies have shown that there is no scientific evidence supporting any link between vaccinations and autism.

There is increasing suspicion among researchers that it’s not a single cause but is instead a complex disorder with a set of core aspects that have different causes. Different underlying brain dysfunctions are hypothesized to lead to the common symptoms of autism, just as totally different brain problems result in intellectual incapacity. However, in spite of the strong heritability, most of the cases of ASD occur hardly with no recent evidence of family history.

Autism Concept
Following are few causes that are assumed as a leading factor for Autism

Prenatal environment : Few risk factors like diabetes, bleeding, advanced age in either parent and use of psychiatric drugs during the pregnancy are considered as risk factors of Autism.

Infectious processes : Prenatal viral infection is another principal non-genetic cause of autism. Prenatal exposure to rubella or cytomegalovirus activates the mother’s immune response and greatly increase the risk of autism.

Environmental agents : Birth defects are caused by environmental agents like Teratogens. Some agents that are theorized to cause birth defects are also been suggested as a danger to autism, although there is little or no scientific evidence to back such claims. These include exposure of the embryo to valproic acid, paracetamol, thalidomide or misoprostol. These cases are rare.

Other maternal conditions : Maternal problems like Thyroid, Maternal Diabetes, and Maternal obesity during pregnancy may also increase the risk of autism, although further study is needed.

Prenatal stress, consisting of exposure to life events or environmental factors that distress an expectant mother, has been hypothesized to contribute to autism, possibly as part of a gene-environment interaction.

Other in utero : It has been hypothesized that folic acid taken during pregnancy may play a role in reducing cases of autism by modulating gene expression through an epigenetic mechanism. This hypothesis is supported by multiple studies. Some research suggests that maternal exposure to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of autism, but it remains unclear whether there is a causal link between the two.

Amygdala neurons : Early developmental failure involving the amygdala cascades on the development of cortical areas that mediate social perception in the visual domain may cause in autism. Autoimmune disease: Autoantibodies that target the brain or elements of brain metabolism may cause or exacerbate autism.

Endogenous opiate precursor theory : Autism can be caused by a digestive disorder present from birth which causes gluten and casein to be converted to the opioid peptides gliadorphin (aka gluteomorphin) and casomorphin.

Gastrointestinal connection : Parents have reported gastrointestinal (GI) disturbances in autistic children, and several studies have investigated possible associations between autism and the gut, but the results so far are inconclusive.

Lack of Vitamin D : There is limited evidence for the hypothesis that vitamin D deficiency has a role in autism, and it may be biologically plausible, but more research is needed.

Lead : Lead poisoning has been suggested as a possible risk factor for autism, as the lead blood levels of autistic children have been reported to be significantly higher than typical.

Locus coeruleus–noradrenergic system : This theory hypothesizes that autistic behaviors depend at least in part on a developmental dysregulation that results in impaired function of the locus coeruleus–noradrenergic (LC-NA) system.

Mercury : This theory hypothesizes that autism is associated with mercury poisoning, based on perceived similarity of symptoms and reports of mercury or its biomarkers in some autistic children. But a meta-analysis published in 2007 concluded that there was no link between mercury and autism.

Oxidative stress: This theory hypothesizes that toxicity and oxidative stress may cause autism in some

cases. Evidence includes genetic effects on metabolic pathways, reduced antioxidant capacity, enzyme changes, and enhanced biomarkers for oxidative stress; however, the overall evidence is weaker than it is for involvement oxidative stress with disorders such as schizophrenia.

Refrigerator mother: Child psychologist Bruno Bettelheim believed that autism was linked to early childhood trauma, and his work was highly influential for decades both in the medical and popular spheres.

Vaccines: Scientific studies have refuted a causal relationship between vaccinations and autism. Despite this, some parents believe that vaccinations cause autism and therefore delay or avoid immunizing their children under the “vaccine overload” hypothesis that giving many vaccines at once may overwhelm a child’s immune system and lead to autism, even though this hypothesis has no scientific evidence and is biologically implausible. Because diseases such as measles can cause severe disabilities and death, the risk of death or disability for an unvaccinated child is higher than the risk for a child who has been vaccinated.

MMR vaccine: The MMR vaccine hypothesis of autism is one of the most extensively debated hypothesis regarding the origins of autism. Several studies were conducted based on this and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, and the U.K. National Health Service have all concluded that there is no evidence of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

Viral infection: Many studies have presented evidence for and against the association of autism with the viral infection after birth. Laboratory rats infected with Borna disease virus show some symptoms similar to those of autism but blood Studies of autistic children show no evidence of infection by this virus. Members of the herpes virus family may have a role in autism, but the evidence so far is anecdotal. Viruses have long been suspected as triggers for immune-mediated diseases such as multiple sclerosis but showing a direct role for viral causation is difficult in those diseases, and mechanisms, whereby viral infections could lead to autism, are speculative.

Even though there are many assumptions, the exact and real cause of Autism is yet to identify. Thanks for reading this blog.

NUMBER RHYMES FOR KIDS (www.itstripping.in)

Singing number rhymes for kids is a great way to help a child to develop their language and interest in numbers naturally. Math Concepts may develop by the frequent use of counting in young children’s songs and rhymes, in both a forward and backward direction. Children learn to add as they count forward and subtract as they count backward. There are stories and rhymes for kids songs explore words that describe size and weight and use math-related words to define concepts such as many, few, plenty, and so on. This contributes to the child’s basic math foundation, which will later help in math abstractions. Few popular number rhymes for kids are:

Once I caught a fish alive

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum
One two three four five

Once I caught a fish alive
Six seven eight nine ten
Then i let it go again
Why did you let it go ?
Because it bit my finger so
Which finger did it bite
This little finger on my right
One two three four five six
Seven eight nine ten

teacher was screaming at young pupil with autism

THE MOTHER OF a six-year-year boy with autism who went public with a recording purporting to be of her son being shouted at by his teacher in a Belfast school has spoken to TheJournal.ie about how the incident has affected her family.
In the audio recording – posted on Facebook last month – a woman’s voice can be heard screaming, “We are tired of this. Your mummy is tired of this and your daddy is tired of this nonsense.”
Quinn claims the voice is that of her son’s teacher and that she was directing the words to the six-year-old.
The Education Authority in Northern Ireland has confirmed it is aware of Lisa Maria Quinn’s complaint about St Teresa’s Primary School. It said it is working with the Catholic Council for Maintained Schools (CCMS) and that an investigation is underway. It added that any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.
Speaking to TheJournal.ie eight weeks after the recording was made, she said her son Aodhan had gone from being a cheerful and affectionate child who sang songs while walking around the house to one who consistently labelled himself a “bad boy”.
She said she made the decision to put a recording device in her son’s bag in May after numerous meetings with the school weren’t resolving his issues.
In the recording, Aodhan can be heard calling for the teacher and asking “Why are you ignoring me?”
In a message posted with it on the social media platform, Quinn says:
He cried going to bed at night because he didn’t want to sleep, knowing once he wakened he had to return to school for another day.
‘I’m a bad boy’
Quinn said when her son’s behaviour started to change, she initially thought it was just because he was getting older.
He used to walk around the house singing songs, old songs like Elvis. That totally left him, he wasn’t his cheerful-self, we thought it was that he was getting older.
“He didn’t want to talk about school and would run and hide under his bed.
He started calling himself a bad boy and a loser, saying, ‘I’m a bad boy, I’m a bad boy’.
“We wouldn’t even use those terms so we knew something was wrong there.”
Quinn changed her work hours so she could drop her son to school and pick him up.
She described how when picking him up one day from school, another child pointed at her son and said, “Aodhan you’re a bad boy.”
Both the Education Authority and Catholic Council for Maintained Schools (CCMS) are now investigating the matter.
A spokesperson for the Education Authority told TheJournal.ie that it is aware of the allegation and is working with the CCMS.
The Education Authority has been working with CCMS in relation to a complaint in a school. As an investigation is underway and due to the nature of the complaint, it would be inappropriate to comment further.
The CCMS is currently closed due to a move but in a previous statement to the Belfast Telegraph, it said it is “aware of the complaint from a parent of a child against some staff in St Teresa’s Primary School and is assisting the Board of Governors in implementing the appropriate procedures and processes to address the matter”.
St Teresa’s Primary School declined to respond to TheJournal.ie‘s requests for comment.
Aodhan has since moved to a new school.
