Kartono (2000) argues that autism is a symptom cover self in total, and no longer want to deal with the outside world extreme preoccupation with own thoughts and fantasies.Supratiknya (1995) mentions that people with autism have the traits that people like being alone and being cold since childhood or infancy, for example by not giving response (smiling, etc.), when in given food etc., as well as not pay attention to the surrounding environment, not willing or very a bit talking, just wanted to say yes or no, or other utterances that are not clear, do not like the auditory stimuli, hitting head or other strange movements, sometimes skillfully manipulating objects, but difficult to catch.
Autism is serious disorder in prolonged communication skills are evident within the first three years, this inability to communicate is thought to lead to children with autistic alone and there was no response to other people (Sarwindah, 2002). Yuniar (2002) say that Autism is a complex developmental disorder, affecting behavior, with the result of lack of communication skills, social and emotional relationships with other people, so it is difficult to have the necessary skills and knowledge as a member of society. Autism continues into adulthood if not made the effort to cure and the symptoms are seen before the age of three years. Autism indiscriminately, disabling does not depend on race, ethnicity, and economic strata, social class, education level, geographic residence, and type of food. Comparison between men and women with Autism is 4: 1.
From the description above, it can be concluded that the symptoms of Autism is cover self in total, and would not connections with the outside world, is a complex developmental disorder, affecting behavior, with the result of lack of communication skills, social and emotional relationships with other people and not depending on racial, ethnic, and economic strata, social strata, educational levels, geographic residence, and type of food.
