Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) are a range of related developmental disorders that begin in childhood and persist throughout adulthood. ASD can cause a wide range of symptoms, which are grouped into three broad categories: Problems and difficulties with social interaction such as a lack of understanding and awareness of other people's emotions and feelings. Impaired language and communication skills such as delayed language development and an inability to start conversations or take part in them properly. Unusual patterns of thought and physical behaviour. This includes making repetitive physical movements, such as hand tapping or twisting. The child develops set routines of behaviour, which can upset the child if the routines are broken. Read about more diagnosed conditons
