Autism is a highly variable neurodevelopment disorder that may occur during infancy or childhood. Autistic children show less response to social stimuli. They often prefer to be alone and smile or make very less eye contact compared to normal children of their age. Autistic children usually have poor motor skills. The respond to social stimuli very less and even if they do, they do it non- verbally. They also exhibit repetitive behavior most often to overcome anxiety. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) children lack joint attention which distinguishes them from normal children. They tend to speak in reverse pronouns or simply repeat what one has said. Autism is a highly heritable condition. Though the reasons are not known completely but ASD is explained by rare mutation, environmental and epigenetic factors.
