Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder affecting one’s communication, behaviour and social interaction. The term ‘spectrum’ indicates that there are various types and degrees of severity at which autism affects individuals. The symptoms of ASD can be observed in the first 2-3 years of life. People with autism face challenges with respect to communication and behaviour in their personal and social life. Even though ASD lasts lifelong, proper treatment can bring in a significant amount of change and help autistic individuals lead a better life to a great extent.

People who are more likely to be affected by ASD

  • People with certain genetic conditions such as fragile X syndrome
  • When a sibling has ASD
  • Children born to old parents
  • Complications during birth

  • A child with ASD might exhibit these symptoms

  • Doesn’t respond to their name by 12 months of age
  • Avoids eye contact
  • Gets upset by minor changes in a routine
  • Prefers to be alone most of the time
  • Doesn’t know how to talk and interact with people
  • Shows repetitive patterns of behaviour in an unusual manner
  • Completely lacks social skills
  • Parents need to pay attention and observe their children to check if there is any kind of abnormality or unusual behaviour in the way their child speaks, learns, plays or acts because treating ASD at an early age can make a huge difference.
