Autism Spectrum Disorder

What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a diagnosis that describes significant social, communicative, and behavioral challenges. People with autism handle information in their brains differently than their peers.

Autism affects each person in different ways, symptoms ranging from mild to severe. People with autism share some similar symptoms, such as problems with social interactions, difficulties with communication, and repetitive/stereotypical behavior.

Autism spectrum diagnostic evaluation consists of a comprehensive examination of a child’s overall functioning.
