About Autism

AUTISM is one of the most complicated and mysterious disorders affecting CHILDREN. The cause & reasons for this condition are still elusive and therefore this disorder is less understood. The perplexing conditions threaten children around the whole world. Most advanced countries are projecting alarming numbers of people affected with autism and the numbers are simply increasing every hour ! Today, it is estimated that one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.

Therapies and behavioral interventions are designed to remedy specific symptoms of autism and this can bring about substantial improvement.  The ideal treatment plan coordinates therapies and interventions that target the core symptoms of autism:  impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and obsessive or repetitive routines and interests.  Most professionals agree that the earlier the intervention, the better.
