About Autism

Autism is a brain development disorder that impairs social interaction and communication, and causes restricted and repetitive behavior, all starting before a child is three years old. This set of signs distinguishes autism from milder autism spectrum disorders (ASD) such as Asperger's syndrome. The main characteristics are impairments in social interaction, impairments in communication, restricted interests and repetitive behavior.
