When the youngster got home from school, he noticed his mother holding a box just outside the front door. His mother told him that she would open the package and that he should handle the contents with care. He was surprised to find a small dog inside. The tiny boy cried and thanked his mother for the present right away.

A hunched-over mother instructs her kid to lift a large cardboard box off of a little one, warning him that something “possibly pretty terrible” lies beneath. She instructs him to approach the object and grab it gently.

The mother raises the box at the count of three to reveal a baby pug, and the youngster can’t believe his eyes.

 “It’s a pug…can you believe it?” the boy says in a squeaky voice as he immediately grabs the puppy.

“Thank you. Thank you, Mama,” the tearful child exclaims.

Autism spectrum disease (ASD), also known as autism, is a general name for a collection of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Differences in communication and social interaction characterise these circumstances. Restricted and repetitive interests or patterns of behaviour are common in people with ASD.

People with ASD can be found all over the world, regardless of race, nationality, culture, or economic status.
