Autism is a disease that is does not hamper the brain development of a child but it delays it. It is an illness that hampers your child’s ability to socially communicate. They lack in the ability of constructing thoughts about the world around them and build relationships.
They like a normal child find difficulty in making eye contact, building conversation and have restricted interest. These differently able children maintain a low profile emotionally and therefore, do not connect easily even with their parents. This pervasive development disorder’s symptoms can be deducted before a child turns 3.
