Eye contact is something we all take for granted unless you don’t get any. The day my daughter looked at me will live forever in my heart. As parents, we all look for those little milestones. Milestones such as first smile, convincing ourselves it wasn’t wind. Eye contact is another milestone that is heartwarming for a parent. It is also one of the social factors that a child with ASD finds intimidating. When your child has ASD these milestones may take longer to come or not come at all. Still, there are ways as parents that these can be encouraged. All children are individual, not every technique will work with every child. However, we have had some good results with these techniques.
The next stage of evolution is here Everyone will have a basic idea of Darwin’s theory of evolution, but does it still apply today? The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859. This is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioural traits. Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to its environment, which will help it survive. Does it still apply today? The answer is yes. ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) could be the next example of evolution.
