Inside the Autism Spectrum

Autism spectrum, also known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a range of neurodevelopmental disorders that includes autism and related conditions. Individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder present with two types of symptoms: problems in social communication and social interaction, and restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities. Symptoms are typically recognized between one and two years of age. Long term issues may include difficulties in creating and keeping relationships, maintaining a job, and performing daily tasks.
