Autism Spectrum

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability. Signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. There is no single cause of ASD and the degrees of severity vary greatly. Common signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder include repetitive use of language or motor mannerisms, lack of or delay in language, little or no eye contact, limited interest in peer interaction and persistent fixation on objects or ideas. Autism is treatable and often includes some form of behavioral therapy. Therapists can help those with ASD develop appropriate social and language skills.
