A condition related to brain development that impacts how a person perceives and socializes with others, causing problems in social interaction and communication, is Autism Spectrum Disorder. The disorder also includes limited and repetitive patterns of behavior. The term “spectrum” in autism spectrum disorder refers to the wide range of symptoms and severity.
Autism spectrum disorder includes conditions that were previously considered separate — autism, Asperger’s syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder and an unspecified form of pervasive developmental disorder.
Autism spectrum disorder begins in early childhood and eventually causes problems functioning in society — socially, in school and at work, for example. ?Children show symptoms of autism within the first year, or between 18 and 24 months of age.
While there is no cure for autism spectrum disorder, intensive, early treatment can make a big difference in the lives of many children.
