what is autism?

1. A profound lack of effective contact with other people

The substance of this observation is that the child seems to be aloof and very much in his/her own world. There is no tendency to interact or to communicate with the world at large. Autistic children are perceived rarely to smile spontaneously at persons but they may smile or giggle at themselves in strange situations or in unwanted circumstances. They may be less likely to look at someone, gesture or vocalize than other children matched in language or other cognitive skills (Dawson and Adams 1984; Kasari et al., 1990). Lord (1993) points out that autistic children have difficulty in maintaining eye contact with persons, that they seem to be looking through a person but not at the person. This group can be differentiated in this manner from other children in the pre-school years.

2. An anxiously obsessive desire for the preservation of sameness

There is a resistance to change in the daily routine. Repetitive actions are done in the same sequence for a period of time or the arrange of furniture, household materials or the child’s own material has to be maintained in the same position (Frith, 1991)

3. A fascination for objects, which are handled with skill in fine motor movements.

There are some children who become closely attached to a certain object or collection of the similar objects such as strings, bits of paper or leaves. If anybody was to interfere or change their rituals, it is met with resistance by the children. The children become anxious. They are able to spend considerable hours on these objects spinning or arranging them in straight lines. They do not play as normal children do and they seem incapable of pretend play, or if present, it is narrow, limited and repetitive in form (Frith, 1991)

4. Mutism or a kind of language that does not seem intended to server interpersonal communication”.

This includes immediate and delayed echolalia, reversals of pronouns, and the use of idiosyncratic use of words or phrases (Kanner, 1943). This is seen to be due to irrelevant association to past incidents which remain fixed thereafter. Those who are able to have some comprehension of language might tend to take the meaning of the sentence literally. Some children may use their speech repetitively and some may be long-winded and well versed in their speech and in this latter case the quantity of the speech is no guarantee of its quality for the purposes of communication.

5.The retention of an intelligent and pensive physiognomy and good cognitive potential manifested, in those who can speak, by feats of memory or, in the mute children, by their skill on performance tests, especially the Seguin form board”.

The islets of ability (Kanner, 1943), as it is known, may include a memory for calculation on the calendars for past and future years, drawing structures with accuracy or unusual skill in mental arithmetic. For the past few years a new term for this category of children has emerged, “idiot savants” which has been translated from the French as “the foolish wise ones”. As the term indicates, they are “foolish” but may perform at a level of superior knowledge and skill in one or, perhaps two areas of cognitive activity (Firth, 1990).One example that is well documented is that of Wiltshire (1987) who draws in exact detail complex architectural buildings and landscapes from memory. His latest capability is to comprehend music without musical training, and to recognize pitch aurally in all registers and instruments (The Times, 1993).
