Information About Autism

When searching for information about autism, it's a good idea to become familiar with the distinctive behaviors that characterize this condition:
 
  • Difficulties with social interaction
  • Problems with verbal and nonverbal communication
  • Repetitive behaviors or narrow, obsessive interests.
 
In most cases, autism becomes apparent in a child by the age of three, but it may be recognized even earlier. This brain disorder has no cure, but therapies and behavioral interventions that are designed to remedy specific symptoms can bring about substantial improvement. Scientists aren't certain what causes autism, but it's likely that both genetics and environment play a role.
