Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder is a general term for a group of complex brain development disorders. These disorders are generalized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism appears with the most obvious signs and symptoms beginning at age 2.
There are several organizations that are incessantly focused on solving the Autism Challenge. Of particular note is “Autism Speaks” which seeks to find effective methods for earlier diagnosis as early intervention with behavioral therapies has proven to be beneficial for outcomes in future brain development.
As increasing autism awareness is a key enabler, Angel Rodriguez has created this site in hopes that this blog will bring together research, news and resources to help loved ones, families, and volunteers play an invaluable role in improving the lives of anyone affected by autism.
The intention is for the site to be interactive and allow for contributors to engage in best practice sharing across the broader community.
