Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is an array of disorders impacting the nervous system that limits individuals from properly communicating with other individuals, and can be the cause of severe behavioral issues in children.
This disorder affects approximately 1 in 70 children, and is one of the fastest growing disorders in the United States. The severity of the disorder can be vastly different amongst individual patients, meaning specific strategies are required to care for each individual child. However, it can be difficult to detect the onset of the disease unless the ASD case is particularly severe. Some common signs of those affected by ASD include difficulty with communication, reduced social interactions, having obsessive interests, as well as harboring perseverative (repetitive) behaviors.
As an academic, I have witnessed first hand those with ASD, as well as the hype surrounding the cause of the disease. Therefore, part of my company’s mission is dedicated to providing families and patients with information regarding this neurological disorder.
ASD is a complex disorder, and the science underlying these associations is similarly unclear. There are many environmental factors that correlate to ASD, however that does mean these factors necessarily cause the disease. On this site, I am dedicating time to provide subscribers the latest information regarding ASD, and what parents and/or caregivers can do to implement effective care strategies for those individuals with ASD.
