Autism is the general term used for a group of complex neurobiological disorders of brain development that persists throughout the lifespan of an individual. An individual with autism faces challenges in social and communication skills and also exhibit behavioural problems. Most cases of autism are due to unknown causes. Studies indicate that one out of 100 hundred individuals worldwide is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Difficulties in attention and motor co-ordination, intellectual disability as well as health problems like disturbances during sleep and gastrointestinal problems are often associated with Autism. Certain autistic individuals exhibit extraordinary skills in areas like math, art, music, etc and are employed in fields such as software testing, photography, commercial art, etc.
Even though autism appears to have its roots in early brain development, it is between the ages of two and three that the major symptoms of the disorder start to appear. If the disorder is diagnosed at an early stage, appropriate behavioural therapies can be given to the autistic individuals to bring about improved results. It is very important that awareness about autism is spread in the society.
