Making the diagnosis of Autism can be challenging since there are no medical tests. Certain exams may be helpful to rule out hearing loss, speech difficulties, lead poisoning, or developmental problems. In addition, parents are asked questions about their child’s behavior and communication skills. Getting a diagnosis is a two-stage process which starts with your pediatrician. Every child is assessed at 18- and 24-month to ensure they are on track, even without symptoms. Doctor will check the baby’s response to your voice, smile, or other expressions among other things. A visit with the speech therapist and a hearing test is also warranted to assess for problems or delays in speech. Most children with autism will eventually speak just later than others. They may also speak in a sing-song or robotic way.
April is Autism Awareness Month, and for many living with autism, the COVID-19 pandemic brings a set of new challenges. Since the confirmation of our first Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) case on March 12th in T&T, our worlds have gradually grown smaller and more uncertain due to measures of social distancing to prevent the spread of the disease. We have all had to adjust to a new reality, normal daily routines have fallen asunder. Coping with the unknown and navigating school closures, furloughs, abrupt changes in routines, loss of in-person contact with family and friends and fear of contracting the virus is a burden for all of us. All of us are coping with the anxiety generated during this period of uncertainty. Most of us have the cognitive and physical ability to adapt to social distancing. However, for those with autism and their families, the adjustment can be particularly difficult. Studies have shown that children with Autism do not do well if their daily routine is disturbed even in the slightest. The breakdown in structure, as well as being confined to small spaces through social distancing, could result in distress or, sometimes, meltdowns in this group.
