Every wonder what is Autism?

Autism is a neuro developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in social interactions and communication, and by restricted or repetitive patterns of thought and behaviour.

Many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will receive another diagnosis at some point in their development. In a 2008 study, seventy percent of the sample of children with ASD ages 10 to 14, had also been diagnosed with another disorder. forty-one percent had been diagnosed with two or more additional disorders (Simonoff, et al). These additional disorders, or co-morbid diagnosis , can at time be extremely debilitating for individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
