Autism

People with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) typically have difficulty with communication and social interaction. ASD can be detected during infancy, these children usually find it hard to make eye-contact, express themselves and be around other children of the same age; they also struggle to read other people’s emotions. If you are concerned about your child’s development and behaviour always talk to your health visitor.

The symptoms of ASD are the same within adulthood and if un-diagnosed can lead to social isolation, anxiety and depression.

How the rating works

There are an increasing number of digital health and wellbeing apps available. Orcha help indicate whether an app appears to be safe and of value across a number of rated areas. Any score below 65% would indicate that an App has some issues that users should investigate further prior to using this App. Scores below 45% indicate that an App has considerable issues or challenges and in its current form is potentially unhelpful or unsafe.
