Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex, lifelong developmental disability that typically appears during early childhood and refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviours, speech and nonverbal communication. Autism affects each person differently and to varying degrees, many being non-verbal, and most all having the hallmark symptom of inappropriate social interactions. The prevalence of Autism is now 1 in 54 children, or 1 in 34 boys. (CDC May 2020) While there is currently no definitive cause of autism, early diagnosis helps a person receive the support and services that they need, which can lead to a quality life filled with opportunity.
