Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects how a person communicates, interacts socially, and behaves. Individuals with ASD may also experience other conditions such as OCD, ADHD, repetitive behaviors, and obsessive interests.
Socializing can be challenging for individuals with ASD, and they may have exceptional learning abilities or need more support depending on where they are on the spectrum. They can also be sensitive to lights, sounds, and spinning objects and may engage in sensory-seeking behaviors or experience sensory triggers.
In the United States, approximately 1 in 54 children are diagnosed with ASD. Despite this prevalence, there are still many misunderstandings and prejudices towards individuals with autism, which can make it challenging for them to feel welcomed and understood in society.
