Autism Spreads Like an Epidemic


Living with autism, disease that destroys senses and makes one live in an isolated world

To withdraw within yourself, lose contact with the outside world, and create an isolated world based on own thoughts and fantasies. Isn’t this painful. That’s what autism do. Live in the same world with the other people around but still no interaction with that world you physically exist in. Questions that follow, can you belong to a world you don’t interact in. Do you belong anywhere, are you part of the typical world, or you are just a part of yourself and your imagination. That is still  mysterious when it comes to autism. There is still no concrete answer about this disease. Why no one knows, and no one responds. If the autisctic children are unable to talk about their evident problem, where is there the medicine?

Autistic children- Children in their world

Autism is considered third disease after mental retardation and cerebral palsy. Autism is hereditary genetic biological disease of the brain. ‘People in their world’ is the sentence that usually refers to autistic people. Autistic people describe their experiences only like thoughts and pictures. They suffer from inability to develop a certain communication skills and other social skills. Beside the lack of social skills, many autistic children have developed motor or mathematically skills. Around 30 % of the autistic people have seizures as well. ( epileptic attacks). As they grow up, the symptoms of autism become more noticeable.
