Stigma of psychiatric disorder till persist But if we judicially think for it then we will know that everyone wants their life with peace, good growth, joy & happiness. To fulfill this basic desire of such special individuals the only need is combine effort of parents, doctors & society to understand them, identify there disorders & treat properly.

Let’s have a glimpse about autism.
Is a complex group of neuro-developmental disorder consisting of social impairments, communication difficulties, repetitive behaviors. More common in male child compared to females. Many causative factors like environmental pollution, genetic mutation, bad pregnancy history, hormonal imbalance in brain such as serotonin, neurotransmitters etc, brain malformation in early fetal life, deficiency of vitamins play their role. But none can be so specific for a particular cause. Unusual social development becomes apparent early in childhood. Autistic infants show less attention to social stimuli, smile and look at others less often, and respond less to their own name. Autistic toddlers differ more strikingly from social norms; for example, they have less eye contact and turn-taking, and do not have the ability to use simple movements to express themselves, such as pointing at things. Three- to five-year-old children with autism are less likely to exhibit social understanding, approach others spontaneously, imitate and respond to emotions, communicate nonverbally, and take turns with others. However, they do form attachments to their primary caregivers. Differences in communication may be present from the first year of life, and may include delayed onset of babbling, unusual gestures, diminished responsiveness, and vocal patterns that are not synchronized with the caregiver. Repetitive behavior like twirling & rolling, hand flapping, or body rocking, doesn’t respond to your attention like smiling or weaving hands. So, Autism is a disorder that can be easily diagnosed just by keen observation.
I remembered one case in which 4yr child keep his toys and mobile properly at its place. He likes perfection. He easily operate mobile apps. Was intellectually good. He avoid replying. If mother scold him he put his hands on ears and cries. Sensitive to scolding. He obeys every order of mother. When we look at pregnancy history, though she was pregnant she was in constant search of part-time or fulltime job due to economic stress to help her family. She had done many efforts. She suffered from constant anxiety for financial help. Looking at whole case history, he was given appropriate medicine and in 3 months, child had developed eye contact. He had started giving answer. He had learned numbers up to 50. Now, when he is asked for rhymes he easily sings which he avoids before. He speaks whole sentences with better pronunciation.
