There are basically three types based on the symptoms:
i] Child is significantly hyperactive and impulsive
ii] Child is significantly inattentive and a little hyperactive
iii] Child is combined with significant hyperactiveness and inattentiveness

Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize. Autism’s signs tend to appear by 2-3 years of age. Parents need to evaluate and get it diagnoised, as, better results are expected if treated early.
Some patients with autism remain non-verbal and around one-third of patients with autism have intellectual disability. It occurs more in boys than girls.
Though the actual cause of Autism is yet to be clarified, it has been proposed that genetic factors could be a reason. The cause of Autism is also associated with several prenatal risk factors like advanced age in either parent, diabetes, bleeding and use of psychiatric drugs in the mother during pregnancy. Prenatal viral infection and other environmental factors can be considered as the non-genetic cause for Autism.
A very predominant problem that develops non-verbal communication skills such as gazing, facial expression and body posture. Patient may show difficulty in linking words to their meanings making it hard to come up with the correct words to express their feelings.
The ultimate results have been quite encouraging when treated by homoeopathy. Case to case approach is carried out to different patients after complete evaluation. Homoeopathy treatment need to be commenced at very early stage, say, when the patient is 2-3 years of age.

Persistent cough, nasal congestion, running nose, fever, itchy or sore throat and difficulty in swallowing are some common symptoms in case of URTI.
URTI, if found unrelenting, would call for pathologic diagnosis to evaluate the complexity of the symptoms. Homoeopathy treatment in case of URTI is considered safe and effective and is used world over for first aid, acute and chronic condition. It is also safe to use with other medications or drugs.
