Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. Because ASD occurs along a spectrum, individuals with autism have their own distinct sets of strengths and difficulties. Learning and problem-solving in individuals with ASD can range from highly skilled to severely challenged. Some individuals with ASD may require significant support in their daily lives, while other people with mild ASD (level 1 autism) may need fewer supports and live entirely independently. Individually tailored therapy can help individuals on the autism spectrum better manage their challenges and maximize their abilities.
