Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are terms to define a complex disorder characterized by a broad range of social and communication skills.

Autism affects an estimated 1 in 36  children in the U.S. (2023), with over 70 million people being affected worldwide.

Children with autism often experience unique challenges, visible in their behavior, which may include:

  • Delayed speech development
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Struggling with effective communication
  • Poor socialization skills
  • Repetitive or aggressive behaviors or speech, or
  • Difficulty in pointing to objects of interest
