What is Autism?
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a term used to describe a range of developmental disorders including autistic disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder.
This developmental disability can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. People with ASD may have difficulty communicating and forming relationships with others. They may communicate, interact, behave and learn differently than other people.
Autism does not affect intelligence and learning. Thinking and problem-solving abilities of people with ASD can range from gifted to severely challenged.
