• Autism affects cognitive function and is more of a learning disability. schizophrenia is when you talk to people that are not there.
  • In the most basic terms, autism is when a child/person is emotionally shut off from others. THey cannot relate to the feelings of others, and cannot express their own feelings. With schizophrenia, the person has delusions that do not coincide with reality. +5
  • Your never alone when you schizophrenic and can be managed, autism they have there good days god bless the parents of those children they need it
  • Well they are in different time zones. About the only thing they have in common is that each occurs in the brain. Schizophrenia is directly caused by a "chemical" imbalance or hyper sensitivity to neuro-chemicals. Autism is a problem with the density of neural connections conveying information to (and from) a region of the brain known as the limbic system. The limbic system is a specialized region that deals with emotional knowledge.
  • no way dude, a better question wouldve been "Whats the difference Between bears and turtles?"
  • Also, autism is something you're born with. Schizophrenia is something you develop. Much is still unknown about these mysterious disorders though. I have a friend that I grew up with, who was a real wacky but nice and brilliant kid growing up, and he developed severe schizophrenia. I can't have a conversation with him, he's totally on a different planet. The funny thing is, we still play basketball together. He still knows how to play ball. He even shows vague signs of his former self when we play, but as soon as we step off the court he's back in his world. Totally disconnected from reality. He has the look in his eyes of someone who is seeing everything for the first time. It's like he's an alien now.
