Is it high or low functioning autism? This is the question a lot of parents ask themselves when they find out that their child is showing signs of autism. However, the fact that there are types of autism spectrum disorders still doesn’t change the fact that it’s autism. Over the years, I’ve come to realize that whether it’s high functioning and low functioning autism, it really doesn’t make a difference, and the only way to give your child a chance at recovery, is to treat it seriously. It’s proven that children with moderate to severe autism can recover, if treated early enough and treated aggressively. But worrying about the autism severity levels, and not treating your child aggressively doesn’t really help anyone. Still, it’s good to know the difference between the different levels of autism, and that’s what I’ll be explaining in today’s video, along with why you need to take all types of autism serious.
