Understanding Autism

It can be worrisome when your child isn’t meeting developmental milestones. You probably have many questions, so let’s start with the basics.

Autism — formally known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) — is a neurodevelopmental disability that affects how people interact, communicate, learn, and behave.

It typically appears during early childhood, and the exact cause is unknown. It can affect children of all genders, races, ethnicities, nationalities, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Since autism exists on a spectrum, each child’s experience is unique. One child may have limited speech, while another communicates fluently. One might be sensitive to noise or light, while another isn’t.

At WEAP, we believe in taking early action for developmental concerns. We’re here to support you from the beginning.
