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)
