What is Autism

Autism is known by many names such as autism, mental illness, autism. Autism Awareness Day is observed every year on 2 April. But the question arises as to what is Autism. Autism is actually a disorder that hinders brain development and occurs during development. A person with Autism is lost in his own world, unaware of the outside Autism. Do you know that Autism is third in the developmental problems of the person i.e., autism is also responsible for the main reasons that hinder the development of the person. Let us know some more things related to Autism on Autism Awareness Day. 

Symptoms of Autism

During autism the person may have many problems, even the person may be mentally challenged.



Autism patients may also have epileptic seizures.



Many times a person with autism has problems speaking and hearing.



When autism occurs severely it is known as autistic disorder but when the symptoms of autism are less effective it is known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Asperger's syndrome is included within ASD.


Autism effects


Autism is spread all over the world. Do you know that by the year 2010, about 70 million people in the world were affected by autism.



Not only this, the number of autism affected patients worldwide is more than this, including the number of patients with diabetes, cancer and AIDS.



The number of Down syndrome in autism affected patients is even higher than expected.



You can estimate the number of autism victims by the fact that 20 out of ten thousand people worldwide are affected by this disease.



But many researches have also revealed that autism has been seen more in men than women. That is, 80 percent of the 100 men are affected by this disease.  


Autism detection in children


Autism can be recognized very easily in children. Some of the symptoms of autism in children are as follows. 

Sometimes they do not answer anything or listen to it and they ignore it. Many times they do not respond even if they make a sound.



They are afraid to talk by putting eyes in another person's eyes.



They prefer to be alone, so they do not like playing in groups with children.



While talking, do not use your hands or make any kind of gesture with fingers.



They do not like change. They enjoy doing the same thing every day.



If you explain something in a normal way, then you do not give any response to it.



They like to play the same kind of games again and again.



Too restless, too passive or too active. Do any work at extreme level.



They are not very efficient in behavior and these symptoms start appearing in such children only in childhood. The age of 3 years is enough to recognize autism in children.



The development of these children is very slow, not like normal children. 


Due to autism 


Till now research has not found out what is the main cause of autism. It can be caused by a number of factors. 

Having a birth defect



Not having the necessary vaccines before and after childbirth.



The mother has a serious illness during pregnancy.



Abnormality in brain activity.



Abnormality in brain chemicals.



Premature birth of the baby or lack of proper development in the womb. 


Boys are more susceptible to this disease than girls. There is no definitive way of identifying the disease, although something can be done to improve its diagnosis early. This disease is found all over the world and it has a serious impact on children, families, communities and society.
