What is Autism?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is described as a disability that affects how a child communicates and interacts with people and the world around him. It affects boys more than girls and in some cases the disorder or the condition is associated with other forms of disabilities such as mental health issues and learning difficulties. Each child is unique in terms of the degree of symptoms they portray, some are more severe than others and require a different approach to intervention. The good news is that with proper and timely intervention, the faster the progress.
