What is Autism?
Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder which affects people in the way they socialize and communicate. Because there are varying degrees of autism, each person may have different symptoms. But the most common ones are: abnormal sensitivity to sound, light, and touch, narrow and obsessive interests, and struggling with conversing or understanding social cues.
