AUTISM

Autism Spectrum disorder is a difference in the way a child’s brain develops. Child with autism may have trouble understanding the world around them. The child also might move in an unusual way (like flapping their hands) or do the same thing over and over (like saying the same word). A child with Autism may have a little trouble with these things or a lot. Children with Autism need only a little bit of help, and others might need a lot of help with learning and doing everyday stuff. Autism is something people are born with. no one knows exactly what causes it. It probably has something to do with a child’s genes and other things that change the way the brain develops there is no cure for autism, but treatment can make a big difference.
