What is Autism?
April is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month! Autism Spectrum Disorder is a broad range of conditions that involve difficulty with social skills, speech, non-verbal communication, repetitive behaviors, and sensory processing. There is no one cause for Autism. It can be influenced by a variety of factors including environmental and genetic variables. Children who present with Autism are often able to participate in community activities with the assistance of therapists and adaptations in the environment to meet their needs.
