Autism spectrum disorder is a pervasive developmental disorder affecting the brain of the individual on the autistic spectrum. All those on the autism spectrum disorder scale will have deficits in social behaviors.
Children on the autistic spectrum generally lack the ability to understand and read body language and facial expressions. They also lack the ability to “mind read”, predict what others are thinking or feeling. This lack of understanding others expressions and mannerisms most normally developing children can read can lead to social mistakes.
Generally children on the autistic spectrum are not interested in the world and people around them. By their first birthday, a normally developing youngster is already trying to imitate words, copy gestures and is already using simple gestures such as waving bye bye, will be grasping fingers, and will be able to smile at people.
A normally developing child will people watch and generally learn social behaviors from their parents, peers and their surrounding environment. This ability to learn social behaviors is missing in children with autism. A child on the autistic spectrum will need to be taught appropriate social behaviors directly.
