Autism is a condition in which the person is unable to understand the simplest of tasks or phrases and might have problems with their speech too. It is not caused by anybody’s upbringing or way of living and is often diagnosed at a very early age. Autism cannot be seen and can only be observed by the person’s behavior and their everyday tasks and that is why it’s called a hidden disability.
There are many types of autism such as Asperger’s syndrome in which the person is too intelligent. People who have this syndrome might not have trouble with their speech but they do have trouble understanding things. It is believed by some people that vaccines like MMR cause autism in children. Children with autism often are seen to be in their “own world” and have problems socializing. They also might have repetitive behavior and trouble writing and reading too. Almost 1 out of 100 children suffer from autism and it has no cure.
The issue is widely studied and some people believe that autism is caused by MMR vaccines. Doctors have researched the issue for a long time and came to the conclusion that autism is not caused by vaccines. MMR vaccines are vaccines to avoid measles, mumps, and rubella in children and do not cause autism. In 1998 many children were diagnosed with autism and the reason was known to be the MMR vaccines that were given to these children. Parents were scared and did not want their children to go through this and hence decided to not vaccinate their children. At that time the rate of autism was high and 1 in 68 children was diagnosed with it. After a long time of research and practice, it was proven that MMR vaccines do not cause autism. Nowadays the rate of autism is very low and only 1 out of 10,000 children are diagnosed with it. This is not a curable disease but it can be treated with therapy and help from parents. Children with autism need extra time and attention but eventually, they break through and do work like normal people.
