Etiology is multifactorial, involving a strong genetic underpinning . ASDs are considered to be life-long conditions, with core symptoms being permanent across the lifespan. Currently, no treatments have been proven to completely reverse the core symptoms. Autistic features begin to be evident in children between 12 and 18 months of age, with limitations in joint attention, eye contact, reciprocal smiling, play skills and imitation, and a reliable diagnosis of ASDs can be as achieved by 20 months of age . The progress in the detection of autistic disorders has promoted earlier interventions, which have contributed to more positive outcomes for individuals with ASDs . Theoretical foundation for early treatment is based on the notion of early brain plasticity, with research showing that the structure and connectivity of the brain are particularly âopen to changeâ during early childhood. The possibility that early intervention could substantially alter the course of behavioral and brain development in children with autism points to the urgent need for more research on treatment in this population.OMICS group Provides Audio version-enhanced feature of website.
