Understanding Autism

That gut feeling that your child is missing developmental milestones can be alarming. You likely have lots of questions, but let’s start with the basics.

Autism is formally known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It’s a neurological and developmental disorder that affects how people interact with others, communicate, learn, and behave.

It usually appears during early childhood, and no one knows the exact cause. It can affect children of all genders, races, ethnicities, nationalities, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Since it exists on a spectrum, no two children experience autism the same. One child might be non-verbal, while another speaks. One might be sensitive to background noise or bright lights, whereas another might not.

Regarding developmental concerns, AST believes early action can be the key for your family to find the right support. We’re here to help you from the very beginning.
