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.
