Autism

Did you know that 1-in-68 children are diagnosed as ‘on the spectrum’ of ASD?

Autism, more commonly referred to as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by clinicians and families, is a biological condition that limits a child’s ability to develop social relationships and communicate. As a result, children often have significant problems in learning and experience many behavioral difficulties. The condition is usually life-long, although overall outcome is improving.
