Autism Spectrum Disorder

April 01, 2017

They say timing is everything, and that’s especially true when it comes to identifying and treating Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This neurodevelopmental condition characterized by a broad variety, or “spectrum,” of presentations, including delays in communication and social interaction and atypical behaviors is often accompanied by general developmental delays. ASD affects one in 68 children, according to the latest estimates. With the right therapies, at the right time, every child can learn and grow, and move toward being the best he or she can be.
