    People with Autism often struggle with social communication. They may have difficulty understanding and using nonverbal cues, such as facial expressions and body language. They may also have trouble initiating and maintaining conversations, understanding sarcasm or humor, and interpreting social norms.

    Explanation
    Girls with autism are more likely to have seizures compared to boys with autism.

    Some risk factors are :- Being a teen mom  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Being a teen mom is considered a risk factor because it can have negative impacts on both the mother and the child. Teen moms often face challenges such as lower levels of education, limited job opportunities, financial instability, and higher rates of mental health issues. Additionally, teenage mothers may have difficulty providing adequate care and support for their child due to their own developmental stage and lack of experience. Therefore, being a teen mom increases the likelihood of various risks and challenges for both the mother and the child.

    Having Autism means you're smarter than anyone 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Having Autism means you're smarter than anyone" is incorrect. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. It does not determine intelligence levels. People with autism can have a wide range of cognitive abilities, just like individuals without autism. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that individuals with autism are inherently smarter than anyone else.
