The Autism Diagnosis
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. It is characterized by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a restricted range of interests and activities. ASD can be mild, moderate or severe.
Most people with ASD have difficulty with social interaction. They may not look at you when you talk to them, or they may avoid eye contact. They may have trouble understanding what you are saying or they may not be able to express themselves very well. People with ASD may also have repetitive behaviors or interests.
The Autism Journey
The autism journey is a long and difficult one, but it is so worth it. Every day is a new adventure, and you never know what is going to happen. It is a lot of work, but it is so rewarding to see your child progress and learn new things.
The Autism Family
The autism family is a special group of people who love and support each other through the challenges of living with autism. They are a strong and close-knit community, and they are always there for each other. Autism families are amazing and inspiring, and they are an important part of the autism community.
