Autism is a complex developmental disorder that usually shows up within the first three years of life. The brain of an autistic child functions in ways that are still a mystery - one that impacts the "normal" development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills.
Autistic children and adults frequently display challenges with both verbal and non verbal communication and interacting with others in social settings. Autism is displayed in a great variety of ways that vary with each individual.
