Autism In Children
In our society there are many developmental disorders that prevent us from functioning at a conventional level. A developmental disorder is a disease that prevents a person from learning the everyday tasks that make us what we as a society perceive to be normal. Autism is the one of the severest developmental disorders. It typically appears during the first two and a half to three years of life, and occurs in approximately 6 out of every 10,000 births. It is four times more common in boys than girls. It has been found throughout the world in families of all racial, ethnic and social backgrounds (Cohen, Donnellan, 1987). Autism is characterized by several factors. One factor is a strong tendency to avoid social contact even with parents and teachers. The Autistic child is said to be detached, withdrawn, and described as living in a world of his/her own. They are easily upset with any change in their daily activities such as the time they eat a meal, play outdoors, or go to sleep. Autistic children often display obsessive behaviors, that include, hand flailing, rocking, and head banging. About half of
