About Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a grouping of neurological disorders related to how the brain develops during infancy. Abnormal development causes problems with social interaction, communication, and limited or repetitive behaviors. Autism is referred to as a spectrum disorder because of the wide range and varying severity of symptoms experienced by each individual diagnosed. Symptoms can be very mild, as is the case with Asperger’s Syndrome, to very severe and limiting. A good majority of children with autism can be identified in infancy — well before the 18-month mark. However, some children may progress normally for the first two to three years of life and then regress or fail to continue progressing. 

While there is no known cure for ASD, there are a variety of treatments that can help, including Applied Behavior Analysis. At SkyCare ABA, we are here to support you and your autistic child on a journey to reach their full potential. Learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder, and contact us for your consultation today.
