Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neuro-developmental condition characterised by deficits in communication, social skills, restricted interests and/or perserverative tendencies that may manifest themselves behaviourally and/or verbally.
As the term “spectrum” suggests, the characteristics of autism may vary widely between individuals with ASD and treatment may not be uniform. Hence, comprehensive brain diagnostics are an essential part of the treatment process in order to uncover unique brain profiles as a basis to tailor treatment programs to target specific area(s) of deficit to adequately enhance and improve functioning in each child.
Based on the Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) which is designed to identify children with autism from those with other developmental delays. This questionnaire is a good starting point for parents to familiarise themselves with the various characteristics of Autism Spectrum.
