Autism is a developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life of the individual and impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Children and adults with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions and imagination.
What makes autism a complex and unique disorder is the characteristic of severe sensory defensiveness, that is, they perceive the world 'differently'. They may be hyper /hypo sensitive in one or many of their senses. Autism is a spectrum disorder.It means that although all individuals with autism may have difficulties in the above areas, the degree of impairment may vary from one person to another. On one hand there might be a person who may go through his whole life without even realizing he has autism, while on the other you could have a person who could be severely handicapped. Autism knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries and is four times more prevalent in boys than girls.. Family income, lifestyle and educational levels do not affect the chance of occurrence.
