Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects nearly one percent of the world’s population. Since it is a spectrum condition, all people diagnosed with the disability will need not necessarily face the same difficulties. While some people diagnosed with the disorder may face severe intellectual challenges, others show above average ability and are able to live relatively independent lives. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States, there has been a 30 percent increase in the prevalence of autism in children aged 8 from 2012 to 2014.
