Social Interaction Challenges in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Understanding Communication Disorders

 Dubois Cossette

Abstract :


The term "autism" originates from the Greek word "autos," denoting "self." Children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often exhibit self-absorption, seemingly inhabiting their realm with challenges in communication and social engagement. Language acquisition poses difficulties for ASD children, as they may find it challenging to grasp verbal interactions and understand the intentions of others. Additionally, they encounter obstacles in interpreting nonverbal cues such as facial expressions, eye contact, and gestures.
