    1. Yes, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication and social interaction. It is usually diagnosed in children, although it can sometimes be diagnosed in adults. ASD is a complex disorder that affects how a person processes and understands information, communicates with others and behaves. It is characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication, as well as repetitive behaviors and interests. Children with ASD may have difficulty engaging in social interactions, understanding and using language, and exhibiting repetitive behaviors or interests. It is important to note that ASD is a spectrum disorder that affects each person differently and to varying degrees. Some people with ASD may have only mild symptoms. In contrast, others may have severe symptoms that significantly impact their daily life. !!!! Please note that I am a blogger and do not have any medical training or education.
