How Autism Occurs

WHAT IS AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER?

Autism spectrum disorder, also known as ASD, refers to a wide range of developmental disabilities characterized by difficulties to cope with nonverbal communication, social skills, speech, and repetitive behaviors. 

According to the CDS (Centers for Disease Control), autism occurs in an estimated 2 in 108 children in the USA today. In a nutshell, autism affects how people experience the world around them. Children with ASD usually need more time to develop basic skills.

These delays seize an array of areas. For example, some children can speak while others have trouble making eye contact and, in general, have problems with connecting with others.

HOW AUTISM OCCURS?

Although the vast majority of people have heard of autism, the real question is how autism occurs? Unfortunately, there is no progress about the ASD causes - it still remains a mystery.

It is assumed that certain genes, brain structure problems, and some chemicals in the children's brain are the main culprits for autism. However, leading experts agree on one thing. ASD is not caused by how parents raise their kids and vaccines.

SYMPTOMS, SIGNS, AND HOW IS ASD DIAGNOSED IN KIDS?

Unfortunately, there is no medical test that can diagnose ASD. It often shows up during the first two or three years of the child's life. ASD symptoms and signs vary greatly. That's the main reason why autism is a spectrum disorder.

Whether it comes to mild or severe symptoms, they start showing in early childhood and last lifetime. The two core signs that show a person might have this disorder are:

* Difficulties in social interaction and communication
* Tendency to restrict and repeat behavior patterns
