Activity Description

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of rapidly growing disabilities. They are characterized by repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities, problems in social interactions. ASD is a complicated neurological disorder that is characterized by behavioral and psychological problems in children. These children become distressed when their surrounding environment is changed because their adaptive capabilities are minimal. This activity reviews the causes, presentation, pathophysiology, and diagnosis of child disintegrative disorder and highlights the role of the interprofessional team in its management.
