Introduction and description
Autism is a disorder of neural development in children and babies. In effect, various parts of the brain cease to develop in a child and thus parts of the brain are unformed. The disorder alters how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize.
It is just one of a number of disorders now all grouped within the heading of ‘pervasive developmental disorder’ (PDD)
