Kids Autism Spectrum Disorders Campaign

Country of target: Democratic Republic of Congo

What is an Autism Spectrum Disorder?

Autism spectrum disorder, also called ASD, is the name used for a specific set of behavioural and developmental problems and the challenges that go with them. A diagnosis of ASD means that the child’s communication, social, and play skills are affected in some way.

The word spectrum in ASD means that every child is unique and has his own combination of characteristics. These combine to give him a distinct social communication and behaviour profile.

As your child grows and develops, the nature or expression of these problems and challenges may change based on his biology and environmental experience.

For children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may play in unusual ways, only play with certain items or have very repetitive play routines. Pretend play may be slow to develop. These children may find play difficult because of;

  • Problems with Joint Attention: this means that an autistic child has difficult attending to the same thing as an ordinal child of the same age at the same time. So sharing a moment with an ordinal child can be difficult.
  • Problems with social interaction: an autistic child may be motivated to avoid sharing space with another child.
  • Language difficulties with both expressing and understanding: an autistic child may not understand that communication has a purpose. He may be non-verbal or have some learnt language.
  • Difficulties with both imaginative and pretend play. Play can become a repetitive activity, which is comforting and reassuring a child with autism spectrum disorders but can block out other people and limit the opportunities for learning that play usually brings.
  • Problems generalising skills: for example, difficulty applying a skill learnt for one activity to a different context so a child with autism spectrum disorders may know how to play with a toy tea set at home but not at nursery.
  • Some children with social communication and interaction disorders: don’t seem interested in what a toy is or what it represents.
  • Problems with sensory overload: for example, not being able to filter out background noises in order to concentrate on play.
