Epilepsy and autism are both serious medical issues that need to be properly managed by medical professionals in order to minimize the effects of their symptoms. Epilepsy and autism are both lifelong conditions that have no cure available even in the modern medical world. Epilepsy and autism are both disorders that affect the brain and how it functions. Epilepsy and autism are both largely medical mysteries despite an enormous amount of progress that’s been made in recent years. In short, epilepsy and autism have a lot in common, despite the fact that they are two very different medical problems.
However, that final statement could be changing, as researchers in the United Kingdom may have found yet another link between epilepsy and autism, and the findings in their study have at the very least prompted calls for additional analysis of this emerging theory. Those researchers believe that they found a previously unknown link between epileptic seizures and signs of autism in adults, and that finding is creating a swirl of excitement in the medical research community.

Most people by now have heard the disturbing news regarding the explosion of autism diagnoses in the United States in recent years. People understand that 1 in every 88 children born in the country is ultimately diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, and when a trend like this one is uncovered it tends to send medical researchers scrambling as they attempt to find out what is happening and why it is happening. That’s why recent years have led to the unveiling of several different hypotheses as to why so many American children are diagnosed with autism, and while some of them do not seem to be serious, others very much are and they are met with surprise if not shock.
One such revelation was recently made in an article published by The Daily Beast’s online magazine known as Women in the World. The long and detailed article was not even necessarily written to focus on autism, but instead was written to explore the potential dangers of pregnant women having several ultrasound scans done while their children are in the womb. However, the piece goes on to describe what appears to be a growing concern among medical professionals regarding the possibility that the waves that are sent into the mother’s womb by these ultrasound machines could have something to do with this skyrocketing autism rate.

If you have an autistic child, you have probably been consumed with thoughts regarding how you can provide the best care possible for your son or daughter. Different techniques and approaches with regards to therapy are seemingly constantly emerging, and many of these new approaches are leading to tremendous progress for children who suffer from an autism spectrum disorder. You spend every day hoping that your child will be able to live as happy and as healthy a life as possible, but you also never forget the reality that this is a lifelong condition.
You have probably never thought about a vaccine for some of the symptoms that your child endures every day, because no one has ever really come out with such a medication and you have not heard about any type of possibility in that regard. That could all be changing as of now, as researchers in Canada believe that they may have discovered a vaccine that could help to control some of the common symptoms associated with autism.

There are several well known facts relating to children who have autism, and one of them states that approximately 25 percent of all autistic children experience difficulties with communicating with others. There are other challenges faced by children who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, but many of those other challenges are made more difficult by the fact that they cannot speak well enough such that parents and medical professionals will understand what they are trying to say within a given context.
As a result of this reality, many people around the world have been trying to teach autistic children to communicate by way of sign language. It has long been thought that this type of communication would be of benefit to people who struggle with this condition, as it provides a non-verbal way for children to exchange ideas with others. Almost all autistic children who struggle with verbal communication continue to face this difficult challenge into their adult years.
Swedish Study Cautiously Identifies Potential Link Between Antidepressant Use During Pregnancy and Autism

When a medical condition explodes in prevalence as autism has in the United States in recent years, the situation tends to lead to several different efforts to explain what could be happening. Some of these attempts at an explanation seem valid on their face while others seem anything but. However, when actual clinical studies are done that tend to point to a certain direction, that development tends to lead to more study and more analysis of that potential link. Researchers in Sweden may have added another link to the chain that could exist between antidepressant medication and autism.
The New York Times recently ran a blog entry that discussed the results of the study, and the blog post went out of its way to make sure that its readers were aware that the researchers pointed out that their conclusions were not completely definitive. However, these results represent the second study in recent times that has come to a somewhat similar conclusion, and this current study looked at the use of antidepressant medications by women during the early stages of their pregnancies.

If your child has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, you unfortunately have become part of an alarming statistic in the United States. One of every 88 children born in the country is ultimately diagnosed with this condition, and that’s more than double the rate of diagnosis from approximately 10 years ago. No one is yet sure why this rate is skyrocketing in such a way, but researchers are working on ways to improve the diagnosis and treatment of autism in hopes of providing several benefits to those who are forced to live with this challenge.
Recent research has identified the idea that the earlier someone is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, the better off that child will be because he or she can begin to receive treatments and other forms of help immediately. This help can provide a child with benefits as he or she grows a bit older. Unfortunately, early diagnosis of autism has become increasingly difficult as the rate of diagnosis has gone up in recent years. According to a recent study, one of the problems associated with this diagnosis is tied to the specific symptoms that are displayed.

After you give birth to a child and he or she comes home to begin life as he or she will know it, parents like you tend to be very proud, very hopeful and of course very tired at least for the first few weeks or months. It’s a heady time that involves a lot of learning by everyone involved, but it’s also an incredibly gratifying period for new parents. You have a child to care for and raise now, and that responsibility is all at once humbling, daunting and very exciting.
