The U.S. Center for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 88 children are on the autism spectrum; meaning some degree of a complex brain disorder exists, characterized by difficulties in social interaction and communication, as well as a tendency toward repetitive behaviors. In its mildest form, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can present minor communication challenges in children who are at or above normal intelligence. In its most severe form, comprehensive cognitive deficits and a total lack of communication create permanent dependence. Part 1 of this 2 part course focuses on the Characteristics of ASD.
