A rare disorder, autism results in delayed development from infancy, and is usually detectable in children by age three. The autistic child will shun interaction with other humans, exhibit significant language deficiencies, may over- or under-react to sensory stimuli, may show signs of self-destructive behaviour, and may have a lack of emotional attachment to family members.
The cause of autism is unknown. Some theories point to brain damage from seizure disorders, others indicate a psychological or sociological cause, and yet others point to maternal diseases or Infections. Furthermore, the disease may be a combination of all factors.
