Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is regarded as a neurological disorder well-defined by a specific set of problems associated with social skills, recurrent conduct, and communication. Identifying ASD as soon as possible is favourable due to prior identification of ASD permits prompt interferences in children with ASD. Recognition of ASD related to objective pathogenic mutation screening is the initial step against prior intervention and efficient treatment of children who were affected. Nowadays, healthcare and machine learning (ML) industries are combined for determining the existence of various diseases. This article devises a Jellyfish Search Optimization with Deep Learning Driven ASD Detection and Classification (JSODL-ASDDC) model. The goal of the JSODL-ASDDC algorithm is to identify the different stages of ASD with the help of biomedical data. The proposed JSODL-ASDDC model initially performs min-max data normalization approach to scale the data into uniform range. In addition, the JSODL-ASDDC model involves JSO based feature selection (JFSO-FS) process to choose optimal feature subsets. Moreover, Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU) based classification model is utilized for the recognition and classification of ASD. Furthermore, the Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) assisted parameter tuning process gets executed to enhance the efficacy of the GRU system. The experimental assessment of the JSODL-ASDDC model is investigated against distinct datasets. The experimental outcomes highlighted the enhanced performances of the JSODL-ASDDC algorithm over recent approaches.
