Autism is a developmental disorder that generally appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills. Statistics show that 1 in 88 children have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and almost 5 times more common among boys than girls. Statistics also show that about 1 in 6 children within the U.S. has some sort of developmental disability ranging from speech and language impairments to serious developmental disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and autism. The month of April has been dedicated “Autism Awareness Month” . Listen to the overview and meet those affected by this serious condition and how it’s changed their lives.
