10 Signs of autism You Should Never Ignore!

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can be described as developmental disorder that impairs an individual’s capacity to interact and communicate with other people. It’s typically diagnosed during the early years of childhood and is defined by a mix of social issues as well as problems with nonverbal and verbal communication and regular behaviors. According to DSM-5 which is an assessment handbook for the treatment of mental illnesses, this diagnosis encompasses the previously identified autism disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome as well as childhood disintegrative disorder and other developmental disorders that are not specifically identified.

Around 1 out of 54 children have been diagnosed with autism. In addition, around four times more boys than females are diagnosed. While still being investigated the exact causes of autism aren’t yet understood.

Autism is usually diagnosed at a very young time (at around two or the age of 18 months). Whatever the diagnosis for the condition, a lot of sufferers aren’t identified until they are in adolescence, or perhaps early adulthood. Thus, when children show signs of problems with development or may be at risk of developing mental health issues parents should seek advice from medical experts as quickly as they can.
