Autism: At a Glance

Now that Internet has invaded every corner of our life, the name Autism is no stranger to the world, much less to the residents of US. However, a little fraction of the global populace is aware of what the disease is exactly, apart from that it is a developmental disability that’s growing faster than you can say “How?”.

Autism is a condition that affects the communication and social interaction skills in an individual due to certain types of neurological dysfunctions. To be more precise, it is a spectrum disorder that brings on the impacts in varying degrees. Considered as the most widely found PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), the other disorders that are also included in the Autism spectrum are:

1. Asperger’s Syndrome.
2. Rett’s Disorder.
3. CDD (Childhood Disintegrative Disorder)
