What is AUTISM?

Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders known as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). The many ways that Autism presents is called the “Autism Spectrum.” Research has shown that named categories for PPD are not distinct. Rather, they are part of a broad continuum of disorders that involve difficulties in social and communication skills.
