WHAT IS AUTISM?

 

Autism presents as a neuro-developmental disorder and is affecting a growing number of children in different ways.

 

Autism is known as a spectrum disorder, involving:

  • speech-language delays;
  • impaired social interaction;
  • sensory integration dysregulation;
  • self-stimulatory and ritualistic behaviour, as well as
  • other behavioural or mental challenges.

 

People presenting on the Autism Spectrum can have:

difficulty interacting with others;
inappropriate responses to social conversations;
cannot interpret nonverbal communication; and also
have difficulty initiating and maintaining friendships appropriate for their age group.

Other challenges include:

  • becoming set in and dependent on routines;
  • sensitivity to external stimuli;
  • difficulty dealing with change;
  • oppositional and defiant behaviour when being guided, and
  • becoming overly interested or fixated on certain topics or objects.
