As a neurodevelopmental disorder, the symptoms of Autism are not always visible at an early age. However, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention has laid out certain developmental milestones that parents can track. If the child misses these milestones, it may be worth taking them for a checkup.

02 At 7 months
03 At 12 months

01 Communication / language symptoms

We are particularly proud of our fully equipped Sensory Park, the first of its kind in Bangalore and Hyderabad. We offer a safe space for children with Autism to play and explore their sensory needs at their own pace. Our therapists work with them to help them through sensory regulation by modulating their sensory systems. Through specific, time-bound goals, we help children navigate the world around them and develop appropriate behavioral responses to situations.
At Plexus, over 1000 children with Autism have achieved significant behavioral improvement through our Sensory Integration Therapy, Behavior Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy programs. We’re committed to supporting you and your child through every step of this journey — and we do it all at a highly affordable price.

“My son has been suffering from Autism for the last seven years. We have visited several hospitals for his treatment, but have been mostly disappointed. In November, 2021, my son underwent treatment at Plexus under the guidance of Dr Na’eem Sadiq. His hopping and jumping behaviours have reduced and his attention has improved. He is able to sit through an activity for some time. His condition has improved and we are very happy with the results.”

We came to Plexus for the treatment of our 2.3 year old autistic son. After treatment by by Dr Na'eem Sadiq sir, we saw a lot of improvements in him. His hyperactivity decreased and his eye contact and command following improved. We are very much thankful to Dr Na'eem sir for his treatment and guidance and the therapist for his tremendous effort in bringing improvements in our son. We also thank the entire Hyderabad center staff for showing great affection towards our son."
Certain genetic mutations have been identified as responsible for Autism being passed on to boy children more than girl children. However, boys are diagnosed more often than girls simply because of cultural or social differences in the way the genders are expected to behave. Being withdrawn or not making eye contact, for instance, could be viewed positively as modesty in girls.
With proper intervention at an early age, children with Autism can be sent to a normal school.
