Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder that affects one ability to think, socialize, interact and communicate. Autism spectrum disorder is characterized by repetitive behavioural patterns thus people with ASD may communicate and interact differently from others which makes them special. People with autism spectrum disorder do things in a different way however, some of them need help in their daily lives; others need less.
