Autism, from the Greek word meaning self, was coined in 1911 by Swiss psychiatrist, Eugen Bleuler, who used it to describe withdrawal into one’s inner world [1]. Autistic children appear to be in a world of their own, isolated and alone, with senses that can overload easily. There is a recently coined word for autism in the Maori language: “takiwātanga”. It means “in his/her own space” [2].
