Medical Conditions

In autism, the brain does not develop normal social and communication skills. It is a developmental disorder that may include:

  • Impaired social interactions
  • Impaired spoken and nonverbal communication
  • Repeated patterns of behavior

Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe. Signs of autism appear in the first 3 years of life, but it may be diagnosed much later.
