Definition of the Autism

  • Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people .It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.

  • It is a spectrum condition , which means that, while autistic share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live relatively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need lifetime of specialist support.


  • Autism could in the future be diagnosed in 15 minutes from a brain scan-saving patients and their families years of suffering from a condition that can go unrecognized for decades.

  • Scientists using facial recognition software have devised a method which can distinguish the autistic brain from the normal brain with 90 percent accuracy . The method could lead to the introduction of screening for the disorder in children.

  • An estimated 600,000 people in Britain are affected by autistic spectrum disorders, which affect their capacity to interact with others .suffers have difficulty reading social situations and responding appropriately and may lead lonely and isolated lives as result.
