These include marked deficits in social interaction and verbal/non-verbal communication, limited repetitive behaviors and interests. They mostly prefer to be alone and show more interest in objects than people.
-Children with autism benefit from well-structured classroom environments, individual and small group education.
Autism is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders encountered today, and it has recently been accepted that this disorder is associated with genetics and brain damage.
