Autism Spectrum Disorder
ASD - is usually diagnosed during childhood but there are many adults walking around today, without a diagnosis - because ASD was not common 30 years or so ago.
It is characterised by difficulty in communicating effectively, (delayed language development could be an indicator), excessive rigidity in our bodies, and emotional detachment.
In young children ASD may affect fine and/or gross motor skills and show up as "temper tantrums" or excessive frustration with the inability to accept change.
ASD can only be diagnoses by a Psychiatrist and/or a Psychologist.
