Question and answer
explain how stereotyped views, discrimination and a lack of understanding of autistic spectrum conditions can compound the difficulties already experienced by individuals and their families
Autism, including Asperger syndrome, is diagnosed as a mental disorder that begins in early childhood, that persists throughout adulthood, and affects three crucial areas of development: communication, [ [ social interaction and restricted patterns of behavior.[1] There are many conditions comorbid to autism spectrum disorders, such as fragile X syndrome and epilepsy. In medicine and in
psychiatry, comorbidity describes the effect of other diseases an individual patient might have other than the primary disease of interest. About 10?15% of autism cases have an identifiable Mendelian (single-gene) condition, chromosome abnormality, or other genetic syndrome,[2] and ASD is associated with several genetic disorders.[3] ] ]
