It is a developmental condition that affects children when they are young. It is a condition that is rising in children across the world. Going by its official name as it is known, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects the communication and social skills of a child, making it difficult for them to cope up and lead a normal life like their peers and bringing in a lot of emotional toll on their parents as a result. It leads to a challenging state of social insensitivity for both the children and the family likewise.

His mission is to give the best autism treatments in Dubai and make sure that every autistic child can lead a normal and happy life like all other children.

Primary ASD (idiopathic ASD): When there are no underlying factors identified to explain the development of ASD. 90% of the cases are said to be idiopathic. Certain genetic mutations can make a child more likely to develop ASD at birth or school age.
Secondary ASD: When an underlying medical condition or environmental factor is found to have increased the risk of ASD. These are rare cases occurring 10% of the time. Autism is also associated with other serious medical conditions like seizures,
