Born with Autism
April 13, 2018
In this term paper, I will be discussing the disorder of Autism, a severe disorder that affects the function of the brain. It causes problems in areas like social contact, intelligence, language and speech impediments, along with repetitive or compulsive behaviors, as well as different responses to the environment that an autistic individual may have different than individuals not having autism would exhibit. I will be talking a little about the description of autism, the cause, affected age group, signs and symptoms that mark an autistic individual, treatment, and the long-term effects of autism. I feel that by researching autism, I will increase my knowledge and understanding for individuals with autism so that I am better equipped to provide care, interact, and how to respond to a person with autism. This information will be provided to you through each topic that I have outlined in the introduction and explain what each means and how they affect an individual with autism.
