Here’s introducing super-parenting; an effective communication therapy that focuses on the parents of autistic children in order for them to have a deep understanding of how their child relates to everyday life, especially in terms of social skills .
This kind of therapy concentrates on kids with extreme autism, who are frequently unable to converse.
Autism is a neurological disorder that is characterised by communication difficulties, routine behaviour, learning problems, and social interaction problems.
Just as there is no known cause for autism or autism spectrum disorder, there is also no known cure for it either.
However, there is an increasing body of alternative or unconventional therapies that have been shown to be effective in treating the symptoms of autism, which are many.
The latest and so far the most controversial addition to this body of therapies is Hemp Oil or CBD Oil, an extract from marijuana and hemp plants. Another common name which you are likely to come across is cannabidiol.

Just like most other children and teenagers, developing romantic feelings and develop sexual urges is part of growing up.
A caveat however, because they struggle with autism, the development of kids with autism is sometimes hampered and delayed in many areas – this includes sexuality as well.
There is mounting evidence from research that proper nutrition may be a cornerstone in autism therapy.
Just as autism can take on the look of a cluster of symptoms, its cause can be attributed to several factors such as genetics, environment, and, after much research, possibly nutrition.
According to statistics coming out of the UK, over 70%of children with autism are educated in mainstream schools. The others go through special arrangements. As a parent or guardian, one thing that stands paramount in your mind is properly equipping your child to live a rewarding life. This is even more pertinent for those with autistic children.
