Autism Spectrum slowly becoming a common disability in children across the globe
10th September 2017
Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD is a serious developmental disability that affects children and usually persists throughout lifetime. There is no specific indication of ASD with behavioural symptoms varying from learning disabilities, poor motor skills to various mental problems, and that too with varying degrees. However, it can all be kept under control by early diagnosis and treatment. It has been recently found in a study that the cases of autism have seen a rise, both in boys as well as in girls. Proper care and attention at home and as well as in schools will certainly help the autistic children lead an active life like regular children and be a part of the mainstream society. Teachers dealing with autistic children need to be firm yet gentle and should be aware of the right techniques as the children might need that extra support within the context of their classroom and school.
