Although all children develop their abilities differently, some characteristics are similar in their development. The absence of these skills can raise the alarm in parents or adults who are caring for children.
Children do not develop their skills, especially social ones, because they may be suffering from (ASD) Autism Spectrum Disorder. (It is important to clarifying that this characteristic is not a diagnosis).
When children have Autism, their development is different from that of other children since they have difficulty socializing with their peers. In the same way, language development is much more delayed. However, this physical development is entirely normal. Autism in children can be identified very early, usually before 24 months.
Not all children with ASD present the same symptoms nor the same intensity. However, these are the most common symptoms. In terms of the social dimension, children with autism cannot respond to their parents’ facial expressions or express themselves appropriately through their own facial expressions. They cannot keep eye contact with people nor feel empathy with other people.
Regarding his/her ability to communicate with others, a child with autism does not say single words at 16 months. Typically, they do not respond when calling him/her by name, cannot repeat what he/she hears from others, or have a conversation. They may lose social and language skills already acquired, which is known as regression. This is not an all-inclusive list.
Parents will always know how to identify different behaviors in their children, so if you determine unusual behavior, do not hesitate to consult an expert about this situation. Remember that the earlier the attention, the greater the benefit for the children.
Crafts offer different benefits in the development of children’s physical, cognitive and emotional skills. Children have the possibility of expressing their feelings in a non-verbal way, using other materials, and strengthening the ability to imagine and materialize their thoughts.
