The Individual

Autism is a developmental disability that can cause significant communication and social behavioral challenges.

There is often nothing about how people with Autism look that sets them apart from other people, but people with Autism may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most other people.

The learning, thinking, and problem-solving abilities of people with Autism can range from gifted to severely challenged. Some people with Autism need a lot of help in their daily lives; others need less.

Autism occurs in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, but is about 4 times more common among boys than among girls.
