Along with the child, parents of an autistic child also need help coping with the disease. There are a number of simple things that can make a difference in the child and parent’s life. Here are a few tips.
- Give positive reinforcement: Like other children, autistic children also respond well to positive reinforcement. Praising an autistic child makes the children and parents feel better. In addition to words, giving a child extra playtime or a small prize can also be good ways to reward an autistic child.
- Stay Consistent: An autistic child needs consistency. Therefore, when it comes to activities regarding your child, it is important to maintain a schedule. Also, be consistent with advice or instructions. This can make learning easier and help them apply their knowledge.
- Play More: When teaching an autistic child, try making lessons into a playful activity. This may seem like pure fun but it can help a child learn more easily. These activities can also help an autistic child connect with their parent.
- Let your child accompany you on chores: An autistic child’s unpredictable behavior can make parents want to leave their child at home while performing chores. However, letting them accompany you can help them get used to the world outside your home.
- Get help: Parents need as much help as autistic children. This support can come from their families, friends, online support groups etc. This gives parents a good way to get information on autism as well as share advice.
- Use nonverbal cues: Connecting with an autistic child can be quite a challenge. For autistic children, verbal communication is as important as nonverbal communication. Pay attention to the tone of voice being used, body language, maintaining line of sight etc.
- Pay attention to the child’s sensory sensitivity: Autistic children may be hypersensitive to sound, light, smell etc. Understanding how sensitive the child is to sensory stimuli can help parents manage their child’s disruptive behavior and help promote positive responses.
- Take a Break: Parents need a break too. To be able to look after your child better, take a break from time to time. Ask someone else to look after your child while you go out and pay attention to your own needs.
- Read: Lastly, educate yourself and keep up to date with the latest in treating autism. The best way to do this is by reading papers and internet articles on autism.

My daughter is 2 month old. She had hemangioma other scalp (head). Many doctors advice that it will start to gone automatically after 1 year of her age. Is there any medicine or treatment without surgery? Is it curable within one or two month (5 month of her age). Please help me.
Migraine is one of the worst forms of headache. It is reported that over 90 percent of people who suffers from a migraine are unable to work. The intense pain totally makes them vulnerable. A mammoth 113 million workdays are wasted globally due to this problem. This being said, if the pain is slowly starting to set in, it is possible to manage it at the workspace.
Here is a convenient guide to do just that:
1. Pain Medication: If you are a migraine patient, it is likely that you have your migraine medication with you. The first step is to try the medication. If on the other hand, the medication is not available basic painkillers can be given a shot to manage the pain. Basic pain medications, such as ibuprofen are easily available over the counter and are capable of providing temporary relief.
2. Educate co-workers: Despite awareness about migraine pain, many organisations continue to turn a deaf ear about the problem. Instead of fighting with the whole organisations, it makes sense to educate your immediate colleague about a migraine. All you require is 1-2 people who have your back.
3. Control the environment: With the onset of the pain, it becomes more and more difficult to resume work. Few environmental changes such as adjusting the monitor to the eye level, using a sachet of odour neutralizer and switching off the nearest light will help you to manage the pain for a few hours.
4. Staying hydrated: Migraine tends to increase multifold if the body is not hydrated. It is, therefore, essential to drink as much water as you can. Apart from water few other drinks such as lime juice and green tea can be of great assistance to hold the pain back for quite some time.
5. Small snacks: Although eating during a migraine can be tough because of the buzzing pain it is a good idea to have small snacks throughout the working hours. An empty stomach creates acidity and further aggravates the pain. Small time snacks such as cookies and chocolate bar can come really handy at this time.
6. Get enough air: A centralised workplace can be claustrophobic and intensify the pain for many. Get out of the workspace to get some fresh air. A sudden gush of oxygen can be a welcome relief from the monotonous and crowded office floor.
7. Apply water on the skull: While this might sound like a crazy idea, applying a small amount of water in the middle of the skull can give temporary relief from the throbbing effect of a migraine. If ice is available in the office pantry, make no hesitation in applying it on the migraine side of the forehead. Ice is capable of spreading a cooling effect throughout the forehead and the skull.

Asperger's Syndrome has recently come under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This syndrome usually affects the social skills of the patient, most heavily. The patient may seem normal and even intelligent at first glance. But on closer interaction, several social skill problems will come to the fore including an obsessive focus on certain topics and issues. Repetitive behaviour is also a part of this disease.
Let us find out more about Asperger's Syndrome:
- Symptoms: The symptoms usually begin to show up early on in one's childhood. The patient will not be able to make eye contact while speaking with others. Also, a perfectly normal person may seem inordinately shy and reserved during social interactions. This awkwardness may come to the fore in the form of looking for expression cues on other people's faces and even the body language. The patient may not be a very happy and lively soul, with hardly a smile to crack at the funniest of jokes. The lack of emotions or the emotionally numb state is also a major giveaway of the condition. Other symptoms may include a strong aversion towards change in food habits and routine.
- Diagnosis: The diagnosis is usually done by mental health specialists like a developmental paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist or even a paediatric neurologist. These specialists can put the child through a variety of tests that will study the neurological health as well as the speech and emotional behaviour of the child.
- Educating the Parent: Once the diagnosis has been done, the parents of the patient will have to appraised of the condition and its implications. The symptoms and treatment will have to be duly discussed even as the parents are put through training and therapy to learn techniques with which they can help the child in progressing along more normal lines. The therapy will also help the parents deal with the challenge of living with someone suffering from this condition.
- Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that aim at fixing the specific areas and symptoms that the patient is learning to live with. Social skills training, speech and language therapy, CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other forms of treatment can help the child overcome many symptoms that come from this condition.
In the course of the treatment, it is important for the child, parent and therapist concerned to realise that there is no single approach that can be applied to all patients suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Individual care and therapy will be required for individual cases. At the same time, most of the skills will need to be repeated at home so that the child takes them more seriously.
