Autism is an umbrella term for a complex developmental disability also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Core features of autism are a) social and communication deficits, including difficulty with verbal and non-verbal communication, socialization, and play/leisure skills, b) fixated interests and repetitive or stereotypical behaviors, such as stacking, lining up or spinning toys, and hand flapping, and c) sensory processing irregularities, including poor motor planning. Children on the autism spectrum have a wide range of behaviors and abilities. There’s a saying that goes, “If you’ve met one kid with autism, you’ve met one kid with autism.”
