You see, the brain is one of the most fascinating parts of the human system and also one of the most complex organs. Our brain is like a computer, can store so much information. Like every organ in our body, we all hope for it to be healthy, however just like other organs in our body system, the brain can be affected by various things becoming diseased or having a disorder.Now imagine having to see a child, not being able to play freely in the park, not being able to run around with the other kids, can’t go to the movies with the other kids, can’t have those fun childish conversations with you simply because they have a mental disorder known as AUTISM. A mental disorder that affects their mental development, communication and social skills
The various diseases/disorders of the brain fall into the category of those with clear medical explanations or those with murky explanations.
Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, Stroke and of cause Autism to name a few …
Autism is usually seen in the early years of a child. If you have a child, niece or nephew or know someone close who has been diagnosed with Autism…don’t lose hope on that child. A child is still a child. There are many kids today who have been diagnosed with Autism but are able to live a life almost just as normal as every other kid. Toni Braxton, the famous singer and star of Braxton Family Values has a son who was diagnosed with Autism but today this young boy runs around and has fun like every other kid, can communicate and do many other things like a regular kid. Isn’t that just amazing!
