Dr. Joshi's Autism Center- Homeopathic Treatment For Autism Case of Autistic Baby Girl

Case of Autistic Baby Girl

Parent's of young girl aged 4 years was referred to us by one of the child's parent who was under our treatment for autism. The child was diagnosed at the age of 1 year 10 months with mild to moderate autism. The major concern for the parent when they came to us was her hyperactivity, she just cannot sit in one place, and spinning and jumping around is also quite marked.

The child likes to climb and there is no element of fear in her this also caused lot of tension to the parents as she will not tell even if she gets injured. Fine motor skills are also not developed as per her age. She cannot hold a pencil or write or draw anything. She understands wearing clothes and shoes which she does on her own.

Developmentally the child started walking by her first birthday; she is now running can jump from heights. The child was normal till the age of about one year. She was speaking in single words and also using gestures like waving bye and blowing kisses. Concern started at the age of 1 year 10 months when she stopped using those words and does not gesture anymore. The child is unable to respond consistently when her name is called and there is minimal eye contact.

The child is unable to comply with simple one step instructions with or without gestures. When the care taker has to call her they have to touch her or call her repeatedly then she will respond. She doesn't like to play with toys she prefers to run around the house or spin.

She likes music and will enjoy herself; she is also inclined to make noise. Sometimes she walks on her toes. She loves to go out in open places and tries to play with the children and is happy when she is with children. She also has an obsession for blue color.
