Intro to Autism

AN INTRODUCTION TO AUTISM VIDEO


Autism is a term used to describe a number of developmental disabilities called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). While the symptoms of autism vary from mild to severe, all individuals have impairments in:
  • Communication
  • Social Interaction
  • Repetitive Behaviours
There is no known cause for autism and there is no cure for autism; however, autism can be managed through effective treatment such as Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).


Currently, autism affects 1 in every 68 individuals and is 5 times more likely in boys than in girls.
