April is Also National Autism Awareness Month

What IS autism? Per the American Psychiatric Association, Autism Spectrum Disorder "is a complex developmental condition involving persistent challenges with social communication, restricted interests, and repetitive behavior." The key word here is "complex." Because everyone with autism is a unique individual who manifests a different combination of symptoms, each to different degrees. In fact, many people and organizations are now using a wheel diagram to describe an individual's symptoms rather the linear lower- to higher-function model.
