The definition of Autism
Autism is a spirit and mental disease, children with autism have neurological challenges struggle with expressive and receptive language skills, motor planning, as well as sensory processing. It means eople with autism typically have difficulties in relating to the social world, developing communication skills. Unfortunately, the state of this lifelong developmental disability is that it affects 1% of Uk population and at the same time, it keeps its high incidence and show a dramatically increase from 1996 to 2003 .
According to LAURA GEGGEL (14 NOV, 2013), the prevalence of autism among 8 years old children remained relatively stable from 2004 to 2010 in the U.K., reports a study published 16 October in BMJ Open. But experts say the study may be underestimating autism’s rates in the general population.
The stability in prevalence follows a period of rising autism diagnoses in the U.K. The number of 8-year-old children with an autism diagnosis increased fivefold between 1996 and 2003 but plateaued later that decade.
There are some iconic performance of autistic children that I have researched online.
