Common “Typical” Signs of Autism

Autism as a diagnosis is established based on specific observed behaviors. In addition, there are also various language problems and social interaction issues. No two autistic individuals, whether they are a child, teenager or adult, are exactly the same. Each individual had their own unique wants and desires. Biomedical autism treatments such as dietary changes, supplement therapy and others can help with many of the core autism problems.

Every person with autism has their own unique personality that manifests in a variety of ways. For example, one child can be affectionate, while another appears more aloof. The same thing can be seen with behaviors where one person can be quick to tantrum or be aggressive, while another is calm and non-assertive. There are many interventions that can be utilized to help such as behavioral therapy and autism biomedical treatments.

Language problems, including both receptive and expressive is a major problem in autism. Some individuals are mildly affected, while others have a complete loss of speech. Once again, biomedical autism treatments such as Methyl-B12, folinic acid and Respen-A therapy have helped many with language problems.

Listed below are some core signs of autism that you should be aware of. Even though the severity of symptoms varies from person to person, each person with autism will likely have some issue from each category:

Communication and Language

Lack in speech or limited language development.

Echolalia (as a stereotypical behavior). This sign of autism manifests as repeating something over and over such as a phrase from a video or movie.

Difficulty initiating or maintaining conversation.

Difficulty understanding the nuisances of communication such as humor or concern.

Note: In addition to speech therapy commonly which is commonly implemented for these problems, biomedical autism treatments can help with language development too. I have treated many children in my practice with significant language problems and seen very positive response. One child in particular went from 30 words to over 300 words in 3 weeks with the use of Methyl-B12 therapy.

Social Engagement and Awkwardness

Poor eye contact, poor recognition of facial expressions or body posturing. Lack of social cues recognition

Decreased or absent interest in sharing enjoyment, i.e. playfulness with other people. Lack of humor appropriate for age.

Lack or diminished interest in developing friendships. Overall poor social engagement.
Empathy is lacking. Poor or complete lack of awareness for another person’s pain, desires, or ambitions. Rigid in thinking.

Needs constant order and structure.

Note: Many biomedical autism treatments such as Methyl-B12 therapy and/or the gluten/casein-free diet can help particularly with better eye contact and awareness of others.

    A Hypothesis: The rise in children diagnosed with autism, across racial and socio-economic backgrounds, is attributed to the pronounced use of Acetaminophen in children from birth to age 5. The theory of vaccine causation has masked the true cause of this epidemic. Acetaminophen is the sole environmental cause of this epidemic. These children are suffering from Acetaminophen Induced Autism. When children are diagnosed with autism by the age of two or three many parents often note that while their children have passed all hearing tests they did suffer from one or even frequent ear infections as infants and babies. This is notable because infants with ear infections are often given Acetaminophen (as it is the most often recommended by nurses and physicians) for the pain and crankiness associated with the ear infections. A child that is particularly sick or feverish between birth and age 5 may be given Acetaminophen on a regular basis to treat fevers and for general comfort. Parents often do not switch to Ibuprofen since they become brand loyal to the Acetaminophen products. Parents say have been told by nurses and pediatricians to give infants and babies Acetaminophen not only after each vaccination but before a vaccination is administered to prevent a fever, whether or not it is known if a fever will result for that child. Parents have given Acetaminophen for crankiness and the assumption of pain due to teething. Many children’s cold and cough medications sold over the counter have a fever reducer (Acetaminophen) added. Parents may or may not be aware of this additional Acetaminophen being given with this medication. Parents of children diagnosed with autism often note that their children seem to have a lowered immune system (getting sick more often or for longer periods of time than their siblings) and complain that the autistic children suffer from frequent diarrhea. Parents note they have seen success with the addition of probiotics to the child’s diet. According to these parents the consumption of daily probiotics has improved immunity and resulted in normal, firm stools. Many parents of autistic children have found success with dietary changes and supplements – indicating that these dietary changes are reversing an environmental cause. This hypothesis contends that the use of Acetaminophen in infants and children through age 5 has resulted in compromised immune systems and digestive issues in addition to the cognitive and developmental delays and impairments that reveal themselves in the typical autistic characteristics – lack of verbal communication, eye contact and social engagement. Acetaminophen induced autism can be prevented. The use of Acetaminophen in infants and children through age 5 must be reviewed and severely reduced. This hypothesis suggests that Acetaminophen should only be used in this group in emergency situations and should not be available in over-the-counter form for infants and children under age 6.

    I’m interested in understanding the basis of your hypothesis. This could be a possibility in the case of our son, but what is your basis for specifically targeting acetaminophen.
