Understand Autism Spectrum Disorder: Types, Causes, Symptoms, Treatment | By Dr Vishal

Autism Spectrum Disorder is the term used to describe a range of mental health disorders that share common core symptoms. Earlier diagnostic criteria would have classified them as different disorders, but to standardize the nomenclature, Autism Spectrum Disorder was introduced in 2000 under DSM -IV.

What is autism spectrum disorder? It is a brain development condition that affects how a person perceives and socializes with others, causing problems with social interaction and communication. The disorder also includes limited and repetitive behavioral patterns.

Since the behavior and challenges differ from one individual with autism to other there is no permanent cure for the condition. There can be only treatment and counseling methods specifically and carefully tailored for the autistic individual based on the severity and deficits a child faces.
