Autism is classified as a mental disorder that is usually diagnosed in early childhood. The cause(s) are unclear but it does seem to have a genetic basis at least in part. Children often communicate poorly...may be non verbal....avoid interaction and contact with others, and may show repetitive behavior including odd mannerisms or a fascination with inanimate objects. The Symptom of autism may pertain to other mental disorders as well and means the person is internally focused and detached from the world around them
