It is unfortunate that some children get caught in autism which results in poor social skills, repetitive behaviors, and nonverbal communication. There are many causes of autism which can be genetic or environmental. Some sort of infections or use of alcohol or drugs might be present during the pregnancy phase which may lead to autism. Autism is estimated to affect 21.7 million people worldwide.
