Information On Autism singapore
8. Is there a cure for Autism singapore ?
Some people, mostly the parents of Autistic people, advocate very strongly for a cure for Autism singapore , although this also includes some Autistic people. Other people, mostly (but not entirely) Autistic people, advocate very strongly against a cure for Autism singapore . Nevertheless, despite the merits and faults of both sides of this often heated debate, there is no currently known or available “cure” for Autism singapore . People who claim to be able to “cure” Autism singapore are frauds and quacks. Almost all of us, whether or not we want a cure, agree on that.
Some people do, however, claim that it is possible to “recover” from Autism singapore ; these people are usually professionals who work with Autistic children and adults. Other people prefer to discuss “passing,” in which an Autistic person has learned how to appear more non-Autistic, thus “passing” for normal. The concept of “recovery” generates more controversy than the concept of “passing.”
9. What treatments, therapies, or interventions are available for Autistic children and adults?
Oh boy. There is a long, long list of common treatments, therapies, and interventions people often seek or use. Here is a brief and certainly not exhaustive or complete listing:
- Speech pathology/therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Applied Behavioral Analysis
- Social skills classes
- Gluten-free/Casein-free diet
- Medications (usually for co-occurring conditions)

10. What services or accommodations do Autistic students often need or receive in schools?
When drafting an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 plan, consider the student’s sensory, social, and communication needs in addition to any specific learning disabilities (or giftedness!) that the student may have. Consider both strengths and weaknesses. Encourage and give concrete tools for developing the student’s strengths, and mitigate and accommodate the disability wherever possible.
Allow for sensory breaks if necessary. Allow a student to walk around a room during a test or to stim during potentially stressful situations. Give visual aids, both for schedules and for assignments and class material. Establish and keep a strict routine. Give specific, explicit instructions for assignments both in-class and outside of class. Create measures to prevent and address bullying. Implement a strategy for meaningful inclusion and integration of the student with the mainstream.
