Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex and heterogeneous neurological and developmental condition that affects individuals in various ways. It is characterized by difficulties in social interaction, communication, and behavior. The term "spectrum" in ASD reflects the wide range of symptoms and severity levels that individuals with autism can experience.

ASD is typically diagnosed based on behavioral observations and developmental history. Early signs of ASD can emerge in infancy, such as lack of responsiveness to social cues, limited babbling, delayed speech, and absence of pointing or gestures. However, the diagnosis is usually made around the age of 2 or later when more pronounced social and communication challenges become apparent.

The exact causes of ASD are not fully understood, but it is believed to result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Certain genetic mutations and hereditary factors are associated with an increased risk of ASD. Environmental influences during prenatal development, such as maternal infections or exposure to certain chemicals, have also been studied as potential contributors.
