What is Autism?

 

“Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. We now know that there is not one autism but many types, caused by different combinations of genetic and environmental influences.” – Autism Speaks.org

Signs of autism usually become apparent around the age of 2 or 3, with one or more of the signs mentioned above. Early intervention and diagnosis is essential, as well as early treatment. Hand in hand with treatment and education, there are many support groups out there…so that you and your family don’t have to be alone in this, and help you realize there is still a bright future ahead.
