Specialized Support for Diagnosis and Every Day After
The world of autism is vast and complex. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that can cause significant social and behavioral challenges.
A diagnosis of ASD now includes several conditions that used to be diagnosed separately. These conditions now are considered part of ASD:
- Autistic disorder
- Pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS)
- Asperger syndrome
ASD is a lifelong condition that affects a child’s behavior, social, reasoning, and communication development. If you have concerns about your child’s development, trust your instincts. Talk to your pediatrician. Diagnosis gives you access to crucial support services, like therapy, training and our Autism Early Learning Program.
Help is Possible. Hope is essential.
