Autism is a developmental disorder that impairs a child`s abilities for social interaction, language
development and communication. It is characterized by restricted/repetitive patterns of
behaviour, interests, and activities during the early developmental period. Others exhibit
hyperactivity, aggression and anxiety. ASD in Kenya has received very little attention from
researchers when compared to other disabilities. This study looked at the prevalence of ASD in
two schools among children and adolescents with ASD. The study used mixed method strategy
that involves archival, observation, structured and unstructured interviews, and questionnaires.
Quantitative data was analyzed using statistical package for social scientists (SPSS) and
summarized in percentages.
