Autism

Autism, also known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects how a person perceives and interacts with the world. It is characterized by persistent challenges in social communication and interaction, as well as restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities. Individuals with autism may have difficulties with social interactions, including understanding and expressing emotions, maintaining eye contact, engaging in reciprocal conversations, and interpreting nonverbal cues such as facial expressions and body language. They may also display repetitive behaviors or intense interests in specific topics.

Autism is a spectrum disorder, which means that it affects each individual differently and to varying degrees. Some individuals with autism may have exceptional abilities or strengths in certain areas, such as memory, attention to detail, or problem-solving skills. Others may face significant challenges in communication, sensory processing, and daily living activities. The exact cause of autism is still not fully understood, but it is believed to be a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Autism is typically diagnosed in early childhood, often around the age of 2 or 3, although some individuals may receive a diagnosis later in life.
