Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder affecting the development of the brain.
In a normally developing child the brain begins developing from birth, the baby learns that when he cries he receives food, drink and comfort. The newborn begins to recognize the sound of its mother and father and other family members.
During the first few months of life speech begins to develop the baby will begin to make cooing sounds by six months the baby will make small repetitive sounds like ba ba ba or ma ma ma and will be attempting a form of verbal communication with its mother by imitating sounds.
This is the beginning of speech by the first year the majority of normally developing children will have the ability to say a few words.
By two years of age most normally developing children will be putting small sentences together and will have the ability to recognize meanings, they will have already learnt to read their parents facial expression and will identify some objects when asked.
They will be able to take part in pretend play, will show emotions and will engage in people watching; they will be inquisitive and will be able to read facial expression and body language.
However autistic children lack the inquisitiveness and need to interact with their parents and others, which can effect the development of communication.
One of the major issues that parents of autistic children report about their autistic child is their communication difficulties. All autistic children will have the triad of autistic impairments which are social, communication, interaction and imagination deficits. This is common in autism and all autistic people will have these autism symptoms to some degree.
Normally language in autism is delayed and sometimes speech never develops.
