Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) affect the way in which individuals understand and interact with the world around them. They typically affect two broad aspects of a child’s life: social interactions and communication. Individuals with autism often have difficulty understanding another person’s point of view. Furthermore, children with autism might have trouble expressing themselves and understanding what others are saying to them.
