Autism

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that first appears during infancy or childhood, and generally follows a steady course without remission (temporary end to the medical signs and symptoms of an incurable disease) . People with autism may be severely impaired in some respects but normal, or even superior, in others.

Autism is characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child’s life.These signs often develop gradually, though some children with autism reach their developmental milestones at a normal pace but later start showing the behavior. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent in early childhood, typically before age three.
 
Autism is suspected to be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Unusual social development becomes apparent early in childhood. Autistic infants show less attention to social stimuli, smile and look at others less often, and respond less to their own name. Autistic toddlers differ more strikingly from social norms; for example, they have less eye contact and turn-taking, and do not have the ability to use simple movements to express themselves, such as pointing at things.Three- to five-year-old children with autism are less likely to exhibit social understanding, approach others spontaneously, imitate and respond to emotions, communicate non-verbally, and take turns with others.

Happiness

Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being. whereas philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion.

Happiness meant “Prosperity, Thriving, Well-being” in the 18th century.

Nowadays, happiness is a vague concept and can mean many different things to many people. Some philosophers focus on the difference between the
tradition of seeking pleasant and avoiding unpleasant experiences by activities like drugs, and parties, others define well-being in terms of the degree to which a person is fully functioning by self-realization.
