France is trying to improve general information, knowledge and treatment on autism
Every year the French president chooses one cause to help, this year 2012, the president Sarkozy chose autism as a “Big National cause”
France ‘s major health care is becoming a problem to handle; a dramatic brain disorder called autism is affecting 1 % of the people in almost every country of the world. This severe disorder starts under the age of 3 and continues for the rest of the life.
The characteristics of this disease are the following:
- -A repetitive and obsessional behaviour.
- -A lack of communication and speech
- -A lack of social skills, for example, they don’t understand emotions
Professor Marion Leboyer, the Inserm psychiatry genetics director, and head of FondaMental foundation found out new revelations about autism. Before, doctors and scientists thought that this syndrome was due to bad socialisation with the patient ‘s parents, but it was recently discovered by this French lab that autism is explained by genetic factors.
These abnormal genes explain that the brain does not develop normally in affected children.
This new discovery could lead to the path of a new treatment to cure patients with autism.
Because of these important findings, it is crucial that information is given in France thanks to the “Grande Cause Nationale” in 2012.
