Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder that involves significant challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as restricted/repetitive behaviors.
Autism affects an estimated 1 in 54 children in the United States today.
Your child’s speech may be delayed. They may repeat behaviors or show other signs of an autism spectrum disorder.
You might notice these signs even before your child turns two.
However, some children with autism show very few signs. And sometimes, children without autism show a few.
