Autistic boy covering his ears. Autism is a condition in which a child does not display the normal responses to words, faces and toys. The child is withdrawn and prefers to be left alone in a quiet environment. Autistics usually have difficulty in coping social situations, as they cannot understand the actions of others. However, they often have excellent pattern recognition and numerical skills. The causes of autism remain unclear.
