Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental difference characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, and verbal and nonverbal communication, which affects approximately 2% of (1 in 44) individuals in the United States. Some individuals are not identified until they are adolescents or adults, and it can be a challenge for these individuals and their families to find the services they need.
Note: we use person/people-first language throughout this website. We use person with autism, person with ASD, autistic person, and person on the autism spectrum interchangeably, but we respect the language that our clients use to identify themselves.
