Surprised? Yes you heard it right! Your unborn baby too might have signs of Autism! An offspring might develop Autism even before birth! But how do you know whether your child is in the safe zone, or is showing the typical ‘red flag’ symptoms? One common method of detecting Autism during pregnancy is by undergoing routine ultrasound scans.
In a study made by a group of researchers at the University of California San Diego, there is a seen a “clear and direct evidence” that Autism begins to develop as early as during pregnancy! According to new research studies, however, and surprisingly enough, an embryo having Autism might show more rapid brain and other physical development at the first stages of the second trimester than that of babies without the disorder. So an early intervention by consulting a certified clinic for Autism therapy in Kolkata, becomes extremely important so that you can take an early action accordingly.
In an ultrasound scan study done at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland made to diagnose the fetal defects of an embryo (at around 20 weeks in the womb), showed that children who gradually developed Autism had bigger head and abdominal sizes than their healthy peers without Autism.
These studies prove that the detection of Autism in utero is possible and you need to undergo ultrasound scans at the earliest during pregnancy to detect any presence of risk factors of Autism. It will help you to take actions at the right time, because delaying a proper intervention might result in the problems getting adverse. If you don’t take an action now, situations might turn uncontrollable from where you might not always get the chance to rectify.
According to professionals at any recognised centre for autism therapy in Kolkata, since Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder, it is very likely to develop at the fetal stage – so it is important for pregnant mothers to consult their respective medical professionals, to detect any presence of Autism in the embryo they are carrying in their womb. Generally in a majority of the cases, it is seen that defects start occuring in the brain cortex of individuals with Autism. This part of the brain is responsible for higher brain functions and it develops in utero – that is, in the prenatal stage.
According to some evidences, it is seen that if you start an early intervention in the first trimester, and take necessary actions, a lot of Autism disorders show significant improvements through clinical treatment done by professionals at recognised clinics for Autism therapy in Kolkata.
