Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. Autism is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live relatively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support. People with autism may also experience over or under sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light or colors.
Studies have shown that autistic patients who have been treated through stem cell therapy when they were younger have shown the most significant improvements. Their focus improved, as well as emotional contact, with a considerable decrease in the frequency of erratic mood swings.
