Autism is a brain development disorder that impairs social communication and interaction and causes restricted and repetitive behaviour. It is one of the five Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) that are characterised by abnormalities of social interaction and restricted interests and behaviour.

Social impairments become apparent early in childhood and parents usually notice signs in the first two years of life. Autistic infants show less attention to stimuli, and smile and look at others less often. Autistic toddlers have less eye contact. Three to five year old autistic children are less likely to exhibit social understanding, approach others spontaneously, communicate non-verbally and take turms with others.
