Autism is a term used to describe a number of developmental disabilities called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a neurobiological disorder characterized by deficits in social communication and social interaction as well as restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. ASD is referred to as a spectrum , since the symptoms of autism vary from mild to severe for each individual
There is no known cause for autism and there is no cure for autism; however, autism can be managed through effective treatment such as Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).
Currently, autism affects 1 in every 68 individuals and is 5 times more likely in boys than in girls.
