What is Autism?

Autism is a complex neuro-developmental disorder that is usually detected in children from 18 months to three years of age. It affects the child’s communication, socialization and cognition. If the children with autism receive early intervention they improve remarkably well and many of them may go to the mainstream schools. There are no reliable data for the prevalence of autism in Pakistan. In the US population autism is seen in about one in sixty nine children and its incidence is gradually increasing. The statistics from South Asia estimate that there may be 350,000 children with autism in Pakistan.
