What is Autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder of increasing reported prevalence. As a spectrum disorder which may impact all aspects of life, ASD presents unique diagnostic and medical management challenges. Additionally, ASD is frequently associated with co-morbid mental health and complex medical conditions that impact function, overall health and behavior. People with autism may require specialized, highly coordinated care.
