Autism affects approximately 1 in 54 children in the United States today, according to the CDC. Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, refers to a spectrum of characteristics that primarily affect the ability to socialize and communicate with others, possibly engaging in repetitive behaviors, with speech and nonverbal communication affected as well.
We know that there are many subtypes of Autism, meaning that each child with Autism has their own strengths and difficulties. This means that the programming we create has to be tailored to the strengths of each child we meet.
If you have concerns regarding a recent diagnosis, or if you are wondering if your child should be evaluated, please call us at 860-333-5183.
For further information, please view this detailed checklist via Autism Speaks.
**Autism Speaks stresses the importance of evaluation, as signs of Autism can be detected as early as 1 year.
