Autism is a lifelong disability and affects the person¬ís communication and activities. It includes communication disability, impaired social interaction, and difficulty in interpretation of feelings or even expressing them. The Autism can be developed in childhood and symptoms may go unrecognised based on other disabilities. There is no cure for this disorder but wide treatments and behaviour support can be given to the individual. The cause is unknown and can be a result of several genetic and environmental factors leading to this disorder.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
