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 autism have difficulty expressing themselves. They show repetitive and restrictive behavior patterns. It affects the nervous system and hinders the overall cognitive, mental and behavioral development of the person. It interferes with the patient’s ability to learn and function properly in different areas of life, like school and work.
