An autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurological disorder that can lead to significant social and communicative, as well as behavioral problems, during the first years of life.
“There is that boy who is a little bit different, doesn’t talk much and is a bit introverted. He finds it difficult to make friends or to understand his homework. However, he can play football well, he is a kind of natural talent in that. ”
Maybe you have heard something like that about a child. Children with autism sometimes behave a little differently. However, they can also have very special skills, which can lead to a great future if they get the chance to develop those skills.
People with autism spectrum disorder sometimes repeat certain behaviors and do not like changes in their daily routine. They also have other ways of learning, paying attention or responding to certain situations.
Autism spectrum disorders include many disorders that are diagnosed separately, such as:
- Asperger’s syndrome
To diagnose an autism spectrum disorder, you have to put aside heredity. An ASD is not determined by biological characteristics. These disorders are diagnosed through an extensive process of observation and analysis of behavior and development.
The diagnosis of these disorders is made by health experts (neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists) and parenting specialists (child psychologists, speech therapists, professional therapists) to view all the details that the family has to offer.
-How do you identify an autism spectrum disorder?
The way an ASD manifests itself can be different for everyone, both when it comes to behavior and the severity of the disorder.
Don’t worry though. The most important thing is that you know about the disorder, so that you can help your child as early as possible.
Some of the most important features may include the following:
- Making little or irregular eye contact. Children with ASD often stare thoughtfully in front of them.
- They tend not to look or listen to the people around them.
- Rarely wanting to share objects or activities with others. Children with ASD live in their own world, which makes them happy, where they can be who they want.
- Difficulties in following conversations.
- Repeating words or sentences they hear. This is known as echolalia.
- Facial expressions, movements or gestures that do not match what they say.
- An unusual intonation that sounds like they are singing, or is very monotonous.
- Problems with understanding others’ views, which prevents them from assessing or understanding certain situations.

Structuring for Autism Spectrum disorders clarifies the impact of the characteristic and man-made disorder on people with mental imbalances (ASD) and various types of academic / educational disorders (IDD). Based on the latest research in the field of science and natural brain gymnastics, the designers show how design and interior spaces can have a decisive influence on people with neurodiversity by changing variables such as blinds, lighting, spatial association, surfaces, acoustics and ventilation. Today, you can set up homes, recovery conditions, workplaces and outdoor spaces to support the development and learning of the 500,000 young people who are expected to have ASD (in the United States alone) and who are expected to reach adulthood in 2024.
Topics that will be discussed include:
- Hypothesis about the structure of the environment
- TEA symptoms
