Kanner’s syndrome and autism

Autism is divided into different categories based on the severity of the symptoms and the combination of the disorder with other disorders. Kanner’s syndrome is a term used to describe the classic autistic disorder. The term was coined by Dr. Leo Kanner based on his studies on 11 children between 1932 and 1943. Kanner’s breakthrough proved useful in 1960s, when due to his discoveries the children were properly diagnosed as being autistic. His researches proved useful in providing lots of children across the world the right treatment instead of detrimental treatments from being misdiagnosed.

Kanner’s syndrome is still a widely used term in the medical field. An autistic child usually exhibits symptoms such as delayed speech, abnormality in communicating, showing utter disinterest in physical or emotional contact with other people, fascination with manipulation of objects, repeated rigid behaviour, resistance to change of routines and high degree of visual skills. Such symptoms develop early on in life, often before the age of 3 years. Many of such children have incredible ability to memorize things, or are good at maths, drawing, painting and related activities. Understanding the signs of Kanner’s syndrome is important, as today it affects a lot of children.
