At eMedEvents we are putting the spotlight for this month on hindrances faced by people with autism.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Autism is a development disorder typified with problems associated with social interaction, communication, repetitive and restrictive behavior. While the term ‘spectrum’ signifies strength and challenges a person with autism experiences. It is stated that autism is caused by combination of environmental and genetic factors. The signs of autistic behavior begins to show between the age of 2-3 and with early diagnoses benefits in support development, behavioral, learning, education and with certain types of family therapy may reduce some of the symptoms.
In autism, early intervention that includes comprehensive assessment, proper medication, and various types of therapies, specialized educational programs and support services plays pivotal role in improving the standard of living of an autistic person.
