Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a collection of symptoms that are considered psychiatric in nature but really are not. Children diagnosed with ASD often regressed to stop speaking, do not make eye contact, have difficulty with being touched. There is a list of symptoms, just like ADHD. But there is no actual test to prove someone has ASD. It is important to find the underlying cause of the symptoms rather than just give someone a label and a drug.
