What is autism

Autism is a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating and forming a relationship with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

In recent years, reported frequencies for autism have approached 1 % of the world population, with similar estimates in child and adult samples.

Myths about autism

myts and facts

Autism can be cured: there is no cure for autism, but it is true that intensive behavioral treatment helps kids develop communication and social skills they lack. Medication can be to reduce problematic behaviors, such as aggression.

Kids with autism have no feelings: what they lack is not feeling, it’s the skill involved in expressing and communicating those feelings, and the ability to recognize feelings in others.

Autism is a brain disorder: no, in fact it is a neurological disorder. Studies have revealed abnormalities in brain structure and neurotransmitter levels.

How Dimensions can manage Autism

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA therapy) is a mixture of psychological and educational techniques that are tailored to the needs of each individual child to measure behavior, teach functional skills, and evaluate progress. Ultimately, the goal is to find a way of motivating the child and using a number of different strategies and positive reinforcement techniques to ensure that the sessions are enjoyable and productive.

TEACCH helps autistic children grow up to a maximum autonomy at adult age. This includes helping them understand the world that surround them, acquiring communication skills that will enable them to relate to other people and giving them the necessary competence to be able to make choices concerning their own lives. The major thrust is toward improving communication skills and autonomy to the maximum of the child potential, using education as a means to achieve that goal.
