Autism Eye Contact
Autism is often associated with a lack of eye contact, which is a common trait. In neurotypical society, eye contact is seen as a non-verbal way of communicating social interest, attention, and engagement. The term "neurotypical" refers to individuals who exhibit typical behavior, thinking, and information processing within their cultural or regional group.
The head teacher sadly reports that the autistic student passed away, despite the family's desperate plea for support.
Isaac Uzoegbu, a 16-year-old boy with autism and learning disabilities, died after being hit by a car when he ran into the road from his house in Gillingham, Kent. This tragic incident marks the third case of an autistic boy dying in the Kent and Medway area in the past three years. Despite his parents struggling to manage his increasingly out of control behavior, Medway Council claims to have provided prompt support to the family. However, the head teacher of Isaac's special needs school believes that his death could have been prevented if the local authority had provided additional behavior support. Experts warn that autistic children are more likely to flee and put themselves in danger if they feel overwhelmed, and local authorities must recognize the risks and take steps to manage a child's behavior.
