Autism Spectrum Disorder

In the past years, on the global platform, an increase in the number of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been observed. One in 160 children suffers from Autism Spectrum Disorder. Probably the increasing number of cases is a result of generating awareness about neurodevelopment disorders. In today’s time, people mistake development disorder as slow growth of their children. We understand the need for spreading awareness amongst parents and children so they can observe the early signs in children.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition in which a child faces persistent challenges in social interactions, speech and non-verbal communication, repetitive behavior. In simpler terms, ASD is related to brain development that impacts how a person perceives and socializes with others. ASD is known as a developmental disorder as the symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life and persist into adolescence and adulthood.

SYMPTOMS

Early intervention during childhood is important to promote optimal development and well-being. The healthcare needs are complex for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) patients since each person has a unique pattern of behavior and symptoms.

INTERACTION BEHAVIOR

  • Fails to respond to their name
  • Make no or inconsistent eye contact
  • Rambles on about a favorite topic without noticing disinterest in people
  • Lacks facial expression

  • Gets upset by minor changes

TREATMENT

People with ASD are often subject to stigma and discrimination and globally, there is inadequacy of access to services and support. There are a lot of parents who are not aware of neurodevelopment disorders and exhaust their money on therapy and special schools.
