How Things Get Complicated While Treating Autism in Adults?
Most of the people get to know about Autism either by reading some abstract on paper or seeing some program on the TV, and it is the thought or perceptions of some of the descriptions which they might think they are experiencing. It is very common that people have gone through an entire life without any diagnosis of autism, just by feeling that they do not fit into it. There are many people who learn how to cope up with their life in their own ways. But is it as easy a work as it seems to be, not perhaps. They now might be having families and are even successful in their respective careers, while there are much more who have kept themselves completely isolated find it really tough to carry on with the daily struggle.
While going through the Question Answer sessions done with the Autistic patients, Chris Manente who has been researching on it for years now, have found out the lack of awareness among the people. Most of the autistic patients treat themselves as the subalterns in the society who are rightfully not allowed to mingle with the rest of the society. But according to the experts, it is completely on the individuals who need to decide whether they want to seek formal diagnosis and be aware of it or go through self-diagnosis methods which are of hardly any use.
What most of the people consider this formal diagnosis is the unsheathing of the curtain which makes the autistic patients disgraceful in the society. There are so many stigmas that exist in the world and getting rid of them is the toughest hurdle to cross. That can be done only by being aware of it, and hence getting a thorough assessment of the diagnosis. Some of the advantages of these diagnoses are mentioned below.
· Proper diagnosis from the professional experts help the patients understand why they might experience certain difficulties and what and how can it be treated.
· Often people confuse and misjudge autism as Schizophrenia. This means that Autism can often mean any sort of mental health problems which can be addressed. However, there are numerous difficulties which can be felt while diagnosing Autism where there are several other mental health diseases which have almost similar symptoms as that of Autism.
· In order to make situations better for Autistic patients, there are several communities that have been created to work out with their problems and make the conditions lot better. There are even opportunities of online registration as well, and these local autism support groups have been doing a great job so far.
Autism which even includes one unique bi-disease Asperger syndrome varies widely from person to person and hence making any diagnosis can turn out to be really difficult. A diagnosis is the only way for formal identification of autism and hence is therefore made by multi-disciplinary diagnostic teams. Chris Manente is associated with many such teams and that might help all his patients to find a better solution.
