The Autistic Spectrum has many varing classes, classic Autism which is known as (ASDs), Aspergers syndrome, Rett syndrome, Pervasive development disorder Known as ( PDD) or (PDD-NOS). But there are many different sides to these, that is why they call this the Autistic Spectrum. A very good place to look for more information is the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes. There is a wealth of information about these disorders, that can be found on -line. Autism is one of the most misunderstood disorders, and one of the fastest growing groups for childhood learning disabilities.

Autism is an intricate neuro- developmental disorder in children that becomes visible during the first three years. A child with autism finds  it difficult to comprehend simple things like understanding, perception, solving problem, speech, social interactions and behavior. This slows down their normal functioning making them dependent on the near ones. Children suffering from autism need special attention.Neurogenbsi
