Causes of Autism

Causes of
Autism

Autism usually occurs early in your development during childhood. It is often noticed early on in a child's life, at which point additional assistance may be required by parents and caregivers. As you begin to cognitively develop, you may begin to show signs of autism in the way that you speak and interact with others. Autism itself can result in a number of symptoms that can be managed through additional care and support services.

There are many symptoms directly associated with autism and many that can also be a side effect. All of which, can have a direct contribution to the quality and ease of yours and your child's life.

The main symptoms of autism are:

  • Issues regarding social communications
  • Restricted and limited behaviours.
  • Behaviours that are deemed strange to others, as well as repetitive.

In Home Care Support

In Home Care
Support

At Live Life Care, we believe that autism does not have to restrict your life. Many people can live a mostly independent life, in which they can interact with others and work a normal job. However, some people may need more support than others, depending on the extent to which their autism affects them.

We provide a range of in home care support services for autism, specially tailored around your exact needs and requirements. Our services can help you with activities in the home that you may struggle with as well as help with improving the quality of life for those who have autism. We can also help you to organise and set up a routine that will help you to maintain a schedule.

Therapy

We understand that living with autism can be difficult at times, especially in many social situations. As a result, we can provide you or your loved ones with a range of different therapies, all of which are designed to help clients better understand social situations and cues.

  • Our therapy sessions will focus on developing your social awareness. With a member of our team, we will work directly with you to develop a greater understanding of social situations. This will be specially tailored to use your strengths to develop your weaknesses. For example, we will help you to better understand facial expressions and better understand the emotions that people are showing. We will do this within the comfort of your own home. That way, you can work and learn in a relaxed environment, then apply the techniques and new knowledge that you have learnt in social situations outside of the home.
  • No matter what you struggle with, our friendly team will be on hand to help. Whether you are at home, school or work, we can provide people living with autism with the support that they need to live a happy, independent life.
