Autism

Autism is a developmental disorder of neurobiological origin that can have life-long effects in the areas of social interaction, communication, and behavior. Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) vary in severity of symptoms, age of onset, and association with other conditions, such as intellectual disability, language or learning disability, and epilepsy. ASDs have been estimated to occur in 1 in 150 individuals.

There is a great deal of information available about the possible cause(s), treatment, and intervention for ASD. Parents should inform themselves regarding the range of available interventions.
