Those disabilities that start at the early years of children’s lives, and affect their development, for life are known as neurodevelopmental disabilities. Professionals and theorists often ignore the relation between developmental and disability. Theorists writing about development have often concentrated on the ‘typical’ and ‘normal,’ with little attention focussed on children with ‘disability.’ The same thing happens in schools, most schools have primarily focussed on managing the impairments that characterize disabilities, with less attention focussed on how the disability affects development, and on the ways that the treatment can promote normal, or typical development among disabled children. Autism development disorder is one of the neurodevelopmental disorders that affects a child’s development. The autism development disorders affect children in various areas of their lives including communication, social interaction, and behavioral and emotional development. Examining the current and historical approaches, interventions for Autism developmental disorder, will enable readers to understand the development and growth of intervention mechanisms. To do this, this article will first assess the impact of disability on development among children from their early years all through their adolescent.

Impact of the disability on an individual development

The effect of Autism developmental disorders varies from one child to the next, depending on the level of disability, and the ability of the child to deal with it. Autism affects the ability of the child to interact with others, from the kindergarten level all the way to adolescents (Clark & Moss, 2011). This affects the child’s development to the extent that some children compensate this by becoming a class clown, in order to interact with other children, or obtain assistance from other children.
