Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) refers to a group of neuro-developmental disorder characterized by core deficits in three domains: social interaction, communication and repetitive or stereotypic behaviour. ASD also refers to Asperger’s syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorders not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) as part of ASD rather than as separate disorders (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5, 2013). Recently, it has become a major concerning issue worldwide in general and Bangladesh in particular as 1 in every 160 children has been suffering from ASD in the Southeast Asia region, while the figure for Bangladesh is 2 in 1000 children and the urban prevalence is higher than the rural areas (Hasan, 2021: Autism spectrum disorder and its care in Bangladesh).
