What is Autism
Autism is a developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact.
Autism spectrum disorder impacts the nervous system.
The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely. Common symptoms include difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests, and repetitive behaviors. Early recognition, as well as behavioral, educational, and family therapies may reduce symptoms and support development and learning.
Autism is a neurobiological disorder that has impacted 1 in 68 families across the United States and 1 in 57 in the state of North Carolina. If your child or family member has been diagnosed with Autism there are evidence-based treatments available to help ameliorate the deficits associated with ASD.
