April is World Autism Month

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a general term for disorders of brain development characterized by a range of symptoms. ASD is characterized by many different symptoms, the most common being difficulties with social interaction, difficulties with verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. The degrees to which a child on the spectrum will experience each difficulty can vary greatly. There are no medical tests to diagnose Autism. Instead, physicians and psychologists administer behavioral evaluations. Treatments can include both behavioral treatments and medicines, with professional teams working closely with the child and their family. Recognizing the early signs of Autism can lead to earlier intervention, resulting in better outcomes. To access resources related to Autism, please click here.
