Autism is a brain disorder the different areas of the brain fail to work together, often making it difficult for the individual to communicate with and relate to others. Early diagnosis and treatment have helped more and more people with autism to live independently as adults.Autism tends to run in families, ans scientists are trying to find out exactly which genes may be responsible.
Symptoms of autism include:
A delay in learning to talk, or not talking at all. A child may seem to be deaf, even though hearing tests are normal.
Repeated and overused types of behaviour, interests, and play. Examples include repeated body rocking, unusual attachments to objects, and getting very upset when routines change.
People can have many different kinds of behaviours, from mild to severe.
There are guidelines your doctor will use to see if your child has symptoms of autism, and the subsequent treatment (if required) involves special behavioural training.
