Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Posted on Sep 24th, 2018 / admin / 0 comments

Usually appearing within the first three years of life, ASD involves impairments in social interaction — such as being aware of other people’s feelings — and verbal and nonverbal communication. Some people with ASD have limited interests, strange eating or sleeping behaviors or a tendency to do things to hurt themselves, such as banging their heads or biting their hands.

As a parent, you never want to believe that your precious child may have a problem. But when it comes to autism, catching it early can make a huge difference. The younger your child is at diagnosis, the greater the impact treatment can have on the symptoms of autism and other developmental problems. It’s vital for parents to recognize the warning signs in their babies and toddlers.

There are also many things parents can do to help children with autism overcome their challenges, make daily life easier, and have a successful future. By learning all you can about different autism spectrum disorders, and the latest treatment methods available, you’ll be able to make a big difference in your child’s life.

When you walk into the office you are welcomed right away. You don't have to wait.for someone. It doesn't have the feeling of most Dr.'s offices. It has a relaxing feel which is important for the children.

Very friendly staff, enjoyable office area and the staff did a wonderful job helping us learn more. Dr. Connell is good and explains things in plain English and not medical terms. Felt very re-assured we will get the help we need for our family.

Doctor Connell and his staff went out of their way to assist my daughter and I with the process of obtaining a diagnosis (report) and submitting referrals for the care she needed. This was an acutely difficult period for both she and I, as it was her first diagnosis and testing experience. All around they were patient, kind, thorough and efficient. Highly Recommended!

Dr. Connell's office has been professional and courteous. My husband and I like how well he listens to our concerns and how we explain ourselves about our daughter. We are hopeful on this new path with his help with our daughter.
