Learn More About Autism

Autism or Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of neurodevelopmental disorders, generally appearing in the first 2-3 years of one’s life.

It is marked by difficulties in communication and social interactions. People with ASD have difficulty expressing themselves and their skills develop unevenly. They show repetitive and restrictive behaviour patterns. It affects the nervous system and hinders the overall cognitive, mental and behavioural development of the person. It hurts the patient’s ability to learn and function properly in different areas of life, like school and work.

Exactly why ASD happens isn’t clear. It may come from issues with different areas of the brain that handle sensory input and process language. ASD is a lifelong disorder. But treatments, therapies and other medical services help alleviate symptoms and improve the patient’s ability to perform different functions.
