What is autism spectrum disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD is a developmental disability or brain development disorder. Children and adults with ASD have different ways of learning and doing things. They have restricted or repetitive patterns of behaviour with difficulties in communication and social interactions.
The word “spectrum” refers to a wide range of types and severity of symptoms. ASD is a lifetime disorder which has no cure. Early treatment and management can improve the general well-being of people with ASD.
