Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder characterised by symptoms such as difficulty with social interaction, restricted or repetitive patterns of behaviour and impaired communication skills. These characteristics may be seen in children and adolescents, manifesting in a difficulty communicating with peers, maintaining friendships and understanding the expectations of behaviour in schools or work environments. Some traits may be evident from early childhood, however often go unrecognised until the necessity of schooling or other activities involving concentration and social interaction increases.
In 2015 it was estimated that 164,000, approximately 1 in 150 Australians, had varying degrees of autism, indicating that sensory and various processing disorders are common. However, without definitive tests or ‘cures’ per se, it can be difficult to ascertain whether you or those you know might have autism. Increasing advances in developmental monitoring and screening technology as well as a broader understanding of these disorders can help doctors make a diagnosis, although often an identification of autism is brought about by analysis of an adjacent condition such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, depression, or conduct disorder. With these coordinating conditions a reality for those on the autism spectrum, it is important to ensure the most constant and simple solutions are available, so that children and adults alike can go about their days with peace of mind, confidence, and security.
