Autism test, diagnosis, and treatment in Brisbane Center for Psychology
If you think your child may have signs of autism, you may be wondering where to go for testing and diagnosis, as well as treatment and other forms of help. Since children with autism have a problem communicating with and communicating with others, early diagnosis is crucial for families to have access to useful resources and treatments. At The Psychology Hub, we offer a Brisbane autism test as well as behavior therapy and other interventions.
Characteristics of children with autism
When infants are, children with autism do not look at others. Young children often do not respond to their names or smile at other people. The voice of a toddler may not sound the same as that of other children, but instead remains on the same pitch; it may not imitate others’ behaviors such as waving or clapping. As children grow, they may begin to repeat a specific behavior over and over, such as turning off and turning off lights, or they may become attached to a specific object. They may be unusually sensitive to sounds or textures.
Families looking for a diagnosis of autism in Brisbane can usually get it when the child is about two years old. By this time, the child will display many common signs of autism, such as:
- Avoid eye contact with others
- Lack of passion or sympathy
- Lack of interest in peers
- Not responding to his name
- Language development delayed
- Not to engage in pretend play
- Repeated body movements such as palpitations of the hands or arching of the back
- A strong focus on a specific object or game
- Severe sensitivity to some sounds or textures
