Introduction: Autism is a highly variable neurodevelopmental disorder, formally called autism spectrum disorder, characterized by deficits in social communication, social interaction, and repetitive or restricted behavior patterns. This study aims to investigate the temperament of autism spectrum patients from the perspective of Iranian medicine, so that by helping to understand the causes of the temperament of this disease, a new step can be taken in the direction of prevention and treatment of this disorder.
Methods: This research is a descriptive cross-sectional study. The study subjects were 60 patients referred to Golhai Behesht Autism Rehabilitation Center in Qom city in 1401, who were randomly selected. Dr. Salmannejad's temperament questionnaire was used to determine the temperament of the participants in the study. SPSS version 25 software was used for data analysis.
Results: The findings showed that the highest frequency of mixed temperament among children on the autism spectrum was related to cold and dry temperament with 40% and the highest frequency of singular temperament was related to dry temperament with 78%.
Conclusions: According to the findings of this research, autism spectrum patients have a cold and dry temperament. Clinical studies are suggested to investigate the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions in cold and dry mood for the recovery of these patients.
