The occurrence of autism seems to be more frequent with boys than with girls, although some people claim so far that we have simply been better at detecting autism with boys than with girls.
ASD can result in many different characteristics, typically causing social and communicative difficulties. Some autists do not speak, but they can write. In addition, many autists develop strong habits of repetition.
