Autism literally means living in terms of the self. To an observer, a child in a state of autism appears to be self-centered since he shows little response to the outside world. However, paradoxically, the child in such a state has little awareness of being a 'self'. In 1960, autism...

ASD is characterized by having repetitive mannerisms (MacKenzie 19), mild-to-severe form of self-injurious behaviour (i.e. violently banging the head on a wall, hair pulling, etc.) (Edelson), agression, abnormal speech, and less signs of emotional attachment (Lovaas a).
