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.
Autism symptoms and behaviors can range from mild to severe, and may seem to appear gradually or suddenly. Symptoms include social deficits, communication difficulties, repetitive behaviors, sensory difficulties, and unusual abilities.
