Autism Spectrum Disorder is a complex neurodevelopmental condition characterized by a range of challenges related to social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors. It encompasses a broad spectrum, with individuals experiencing a range of impairments. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 1 in 160 children have ASD. However, these numbers may have changed over time due to increased awareness, improved diagnosis, and evolving diagnostic criteria.

Individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder may encounter challenges when acquiring new skills and handling their daily routines. The pace at which children acquire new abilities can also vary, influenced by their current condition and the environment they are in. Diverse forms of rehabilitation can assist individuals in coping with newfound skills, everyday responsibilities, and the myriad of emotions and demands they encounter.

At Cadabams in Hyderabad and Bangalore, our team of highly qualified and experienced professionals specializes in conducting psychometric assessments to screen patients for autism. Following a comprehensive diagnosis, our experts adopt a multidisciplinary approach to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to address the specific needs of each individual with autism.

If you're seeking treatment options or have any questions related to our services, the most convenient way to get started is by scheduling an appointment with us or reaching out with any treatment-related inquiries.
