About Autism

Autism is a condition that affects a child’s development and function in social interactions, communication and behavior. An individual with autism may need a lot of help in daily life or may need less help.  The level of severity can vary considerably from one individual to another, making it difficult for families to know exactly what to look for when seeking services.
