Autism is a neuro- developmental disorder that majorly affects the social skills, communication skills, developmental language of an individual combined with rigid and repetitive behavioral pattern.  There are several disorders that falls under the Autistic Spectrum Disorder, some of them are Asperger’s syndrome, Rett Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder. ASD diagnostic scale helps to examine the eye contact, repetitive behaviors, language abilities and social skills to understand the symptoms present, the intensity of the symptoms, the examiner also gets a clarity on which type of ASD is present (in some case just the autistic features are present hence cannot be diagnosed as ASD).
