Recognizing Asperger's in Young Children

Identifying  Asperger's Symptoms in Children - by Wade Balsdon

Parents are able to identify Aperger's by noticing certain Asperger's symptoms in children. It can be somewhat tricky though as two children may display different signs of the condition. The best way to describe this condition is by thinking of it as autism for clever children.

There are a number of tell-tale signs of Asperger's symptoms in children

Many children with Asperger's have retarded motor development. These children will take longer than other children  to learn to catch or kick a ball and ride a bicycle. Similarly, they will take longer to eat with a spoon or a fork. They love to talk about certain subjects, and many of the conversations are one way. They also become preoccupied with specified topics and pay attention to specific detail regarding the specific topic.

Asperger's symptoms in children are obvious by the way that they speak

Children with Asperger's use different words in their vocabulary than other children do. Instead of "calling" someone, they  "beckon" a person. And while other people "come back", Asperger's children will "return." They are not big on making eye contact and their speech is often somewhat flat lacking pitch, accent and tone. These kids do not grasp jokes as easily as other kids do, and they are not the world's best joke tellers themselves.

Lack of empathy and poor social cues are two other Asperger's symptoms in children

These kids are not the most empathetic little tykes whom you will encounter. They do not know how to read body language and will often interrupt other children who are speaking. Maintaining conversation is a struggle for them as is starting a conversation for these children. They are really stuck in their ways and resist change like the plague.

Do not confuse Asperger's Symptoms in Children

While it might appear that these children are slower than other children, nothing could be further from the truth. These children are intelligent and just need to be dealt with in a different way. They need and deserve love like other children do. Find out all that you can about the condition and yours and your child’s lives will be wholesome and complete.

*GIVEAWAY!* - Anti-lice Kit

I recently came across Reitser Pharmaceuticals' Pure Cream (Like them on Facebook here). If you know me at all, you will know that I always complain about dry skin. I simply had to try the cream for myself!

Yesterday I received a hamper in the mail containing some of the great products in the Reitser range, including the Pure Cream, Pure Shampoo and an Anti-Lice kit to review and give away on my site!

I tried the cream and it's amazing. Although it deeply moisturizes, it absorbs completely, leaving your skin soft and supple. It is fragrance and color free and as the rest of the range, it contains only the purest of ingredients. 

My husband has a dry and itchy scalp, which is why I told him to try the Pure Shampoo with Urea. This is what the site says about it: " Pure Shampoo with Urea 5.5% is free of: Parabens, SLES, SLS, CDE, Colourants and Fragrance. This is the exact same formula as the Pure Shampoo Every Day except it has 5.5% of synthetic Urea added to it. This is aimed at consumers that suffer from very dry scalp. The Urea is present because Urea is water loving. It binds the water to the skin and increases the hydration levels of the skin." After using the shampoo just once, his scalp is not as dry and itchy. 

I would definitely recommend the products to my readers and to thank you all for your loyal support and give you an opportunity to try it, I'm giving away a whole Reitzer kit which includes a 4-in-1 Anti-lice kit, Pure Cream, Pure Soap and Pure Shampoo. 

Here's what you have to do to stand a chance of winning:

*  If you don't have a blog, then mention it on Facebook. Let your friends tell us that they heard about us from you!

On Monday 19 September we will announce the winner!
