Autism is a lifelong disorder that interferes with the ability to understand what is seen, heard, and touched. This can cause profound problems in personal behavior and in the ability to relate to others. A person with autism must learn how to communicate normally and how to relate to people, objects and events. However, not all patients suffer the same degree of impairment. There is a full spectrum of symptoms, which can range from mild to severe.

Autism occurs in as many as one or two per 1,000 children. It is found four times more often in boys (usually the first-born) and occurs around the world in all races and social backgrounds. Autism usually is evident in the first three years of life, although in some children it’s hard to tell when the problem develops. Sometimes the condition isn’t diagnosed until the child enters school.

Lynette Louis

April is Autism Awareness month, so join me on Wednesday April 24, 2013 at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” on “Conversations Live” where my guest will be, Autism expert and therapist, Lynette Louise Author of two titles: MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real Life Guide to Autism” and “Autism and the Brain”.

Having raised eight children, Lynette Louise also holds two board certifications in Neurofeedback. As the host of the popular podcast A NEW SPIN ON AUTISM: ANSWERS! Lynette invites knowledgeable and surprising guests, and together they explore topics (ranging from neuroscience to stand-up comedy) with fun and fascination until discovering useful autism answers.

All topic related questions can be emailed to the show @ conversations@optonline.net

      Why? Because she’s a celeb married to an ex-baller? Please she’s still not a therapist or an expert just an advocate.

        The first time I was aware of the disorder was when I saw Toni Braxton’s commercial and Holly Robinson Peete talk about on Donald Trump’s show the apprentice.

    I firmly believe that autism is a way of life. It can’t be cured. It is your life. Its how you think, see, plan etc., That’s what I believe.

      Angel hair,
      how is having Autism a way of life? It’s not like being Jewish or Catholic. It’s having a ‘disability’. It’s a difference not a disorder. Being anorexic is a disorder.
