Till date the has been no known cause of Autism but definitions that throws some light on the developmental disorder known as autism. The National Institute for Mental Health, Autism defines autism as a developmental disorder that affects communication and behaviour. It also refers to a broad range of conditions characterised by challenges with social skill, repetitive behaviours, speech and non-verbal communication. Autism as a disorder is considered a spectrum because there is a wide variation in the presentation, course and severity of the symptoms patients with autism suffer. This means that while all individuals with Autism share the same kind of difficulties, these difficulties will present and affect them in different ways, that is the severity of symptoms vary from Individual to individual. This disorder is not peculiar to any race, ethnic group or an economic social class. It can be seen in any child irrespective of their race, ethnic group or social class. Autism is said to be a developmental disorder because the symptoms manifest during the active developmental phase post-natrum mostly between age 1 and 2. However Autism can be diagnosed at any age. Autism share some similar feature with some other disorders like Learning disability and is sometime confused for the other. It takes careful study and examination to correctly diagnose a child of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
