Autism Spectrum Disorders
People with autism have challenges with communication and social skills. They often find it hard to have conversations and may not pick up on social cues. Some people with autism may not talk at all, and others may talk very well. This becomes more difficult when your child is bilingual.
People with autism also have some type of restricted interest or repetitive behaviors. They may focus on one topic, like cars or a television show, or they may be attached to a certain object or activity. A person with autism may not like changes in their schedule or changes in the way they do something.
Autism can range on a spectrum from mild to severe, depending on how much these challenges affect everyday life. (asha.org)
