Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnoses have grown at a tremendous rate in recent years globally, likely due to growing awareness of the condition, and perhaps other contributing factors. ASD diagnosis and treatment remains a challenge due to different cultural and personal factors. The main current treatments primarily focused on behavioural approaches but there are many other available evidence-based approaches. Because ASD is considered as a lifelong neurodevelopmental condition, significant efforts are being made to investigate it from the different perspective and mainly through multidisciplinary approaches. In this focus issue, we will highlight reviews and research that addresses ASD from different conceptual, cultural, social, medical and technological perspective with the potential to have positive outcomes for families and individuals.
