Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Autism. 4 year old autistic boy hugging his bare arms to his chest in withdrawal from the world around him. Autism, also known as Kanner syndrome, is a mental disorder in which the child has an inability to communicate by speech or to form abstract concepts. Autistic children have a preference to play alone and fail to form relationships. They may develop behavioural abnormalities such as sudden screaming, self injury and hyperactivity. Only a minority of autistic children have an independent life, most needing continuous, special care. The precise cause of autism is still unknown.
