The number of diagnosed cases of Autism appears to be rising, and currently there is no known cure for the condition. That said, early intervention can be critical in treating people with Autism and helping improve their lives. Thus, it is important to be aware of the potential symptoms of Autism so that you can get your child the help that he or she may need as early as possible.

Autism Symptoms

According to the Mayo Clinic, Autism may be a concern for a child who:
  • Fails to respond to his or her own name, fails to make eye contact, seems not to hear you, appears to be in his or her own world, or otherwise suffers from poor social skills.
  • Talks late, loses previously acquired language skills, doesn't seem to understand words, or has other language problems or delays.
  • Performs repetitive motions, moves a lot, is set in his or her routine, is overly sensitive to light or touch or has other behavior problems.

Recovering Damages for Autism Birth Injuries

Treatment for Autism can be expensive and may not be completely covered by health insurance and public education. A recent study suggests that some cases of Autism may be linked to oxygen deprivation birth injuries. If your child was injured in this way and it can be proven that Autism was caused by a doctor's negligence, then your child may be entitled to damages. A New York birth injury lawyer may be able to help your family. Contact a New York birth injury attorney at 1-800-PAGAN-911 for more information.
