Autism

Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition with an estimated lifetime prevalence of 1%. Basic symptoms include a lack of social communication, restricted or repetitive interests and activities, and sensorial anomalies starting during early childhood.

Autism was described for the first time in 1943 by the child psychiatrist Leo Kanner. Currently, according to the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V), the term Autism Spectrum Disorders refers to all those conditions that involve a lack of social communication, restricted or repetitive interests and activities, and sensorial anomalies starting during early childhood. All these conditions start to appear in early childhood even if they do not fully manifest until the person’s limited capacities stop them from responding to social needs.
