Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain’s normal development of social interaction and communication. Autism now affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. This resource page includes training on the disorder and various treatment strategies as well as articles and links to informational websites on autism.
