What is Autism
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability with no known cause or a single effective treatment.
Children and adults with ASD have difficulty with social communication and interpersonal skills. They exhibit restrictive and/or repetitive patterns of behavior. A wide range of ability is exhibited among those afflicted. Some people with ASD are gifted, while others need significant levels of support to ensure their health and well-being.
ASD is usually diagnosed in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills for life.
