Q. What are the main goals of treatment in children with autism? I want to know what are the main goals to achieve in treating a child with autism, and how long it takes for results.

A. The main purpose of treating autism are to assist the child and the family in relieving the child’s autism's core symptoms of social and communication impairments. This is done by long and intensive therapy, by a multidisciplinary staff of caregivers. The progression is usually slow, however most children do show improvement in these greatly affecting fields of daily life.

Q. Are there any goals set for fitness training depending on the person’s health and age? I am a guy who satisfies others’ needs without any selfish motive. But I worry whether I am able to satisfy my girlfriend’s wish. She wants me to develop my body by going to a gym. Spurred on by my romantic frame of mind, I joined a gym last month and soon I was admitted in hospital. Doctors said that I didn’t follow the right procedure or could have not taken right guidance from a fitness trainer. I doubt my fitness trainer or the procedure that he used to guide me was right or wrong. Now please let me know that before you enroll in a gym what are the things that the fitness trainer will suggest and are the exercises tailor-made for each person? Are there any goals set for fitness training depending on the person’s health and age? Can I satisfy my girl-friend’s wish finally?

A. I too think so... It depends on the club and how competent/capable the trainer is. Most of the trainers will execute an initial testing to determine body fat, flexibility, blood pressure, etc. You will be asked your goals – the greater the strength, the more endurance, etc. Some will recommend specific exercise if you request them. Most of the trainers at gyms will suggest exercises after you join, so you need to ask questions before you join to determine what will and can be done. Other members can also be asked how they have been guided. Stop by at the gym several times before you join to see how crowded they are, if the equipment would be made available to you when you need it and if it is kept clean and hygienic. There are no set standards, so the person involved should be aware and informed. Do not strain yourself too much. All the best in your life!
