What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorder ( ASD ) or autism is a neurobiological disorder characterized by impairments in social communication and interaction as well as restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior . Individuals with autism have difficulty interacting with others: building relationships , using language , regulating their emotions , and understanding others’ points of view .
According to the CDC , 1 in 44 children in the U . S . is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder ( ASD ) . The disorder does not discriminate and effects families from all walks of life .
