We are all curious to know that the cure of autism or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders). Because the neurological disorder or the spectrum of disorders is turning into a social curse. If we look for evidence, then the CDC data report of 2010 shows that autistic disorders are found in 1 out of 68 children.
Being a part of our society, we are searching for the cure of autism, though it is declared that autism is not totally curable because of its strong genetic basis. But we can fight back autism to make it mild, as the children with autistic disorders can’t perform normal social skills, verbal communications etc.
More or less we all know the common symptoms of autistic disorders. We are not going to discuss or repeat the same facts that the children with autistic brain have commonly non verbal communication, repetitive behavior, stereotyped behavior, learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, etc.
We can cure or heal autism when it is diagnosed properly. The diagnosis is still overlooked and many patients with ASD are not attended, and that may be a reason of spreading autism. The early diagnosis can make the progress better to cure autism because it is proved that the children with autistic brain, who are not diagnosed and not treated become the patient of
- OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder)
- Schizoid personality
in their adulthood.
So, early diagnosis on or before the age of three is more effective to improve the autistic disorders gradually.
Here a new invention or discovery comes with a toy set to help people to know about autism.

A 22-year-old University student, Rob Mafrici designed a toy to help in the diagnosis of autism. He made it for his final year project of industrial design at Brunel University. But he has a hope that it will be rolled through out the country to diagnose autism as early as possible, though the toy is in prototype stage right now.
So, the future of this prototype will not only be a toy but it will be a useful gesture or a diagnostic tool to diagnose autism at the early stage, when the children with susceptibility of autism will play with this.
Before treating autism we need to know the number of offspring who are going to suffer with social skill disabilities. Application of this toy like diagnostic tool, can give us an evolutionary result which may change the number of autistic children in the current CDC report.
