What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a child's ability to communicate, interact socially, and behave appropriately in different situations. The severity of symptoms can vary widely, which is why it is referred to as a "spectrum" disorder. Common signs of ASD include difficulty with communication, lack of eye contact, difficulty with social interactions, repetitive behaviors or routines, and difficulty with sensory processing.
