5 Effective Yoga Poses for Autism

Autism is a part of the spectrum of developmental disorders that first appear in children below three years of age. As they grow, the children exhibit complex neurological abnormalities. They find it extremely difficult to communicate, concentrate and interact socially.

Autistic children exhibit repetitive, stereotypical patterns of behavior. They do not understand facial expressions, tone of voice, are self-abusive, and may not even respond to their names. Language skills are developed gradually, or sometimes they don’t develop at all, which isolates the children from the rest. Any deviation from routine will lead to an aggressive tantrum as they vehemently resist change. The world is challenging on its own. But inside the world of an autistic child, the challenges are beyond comprehension.
