Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills.  It is a physical condition linked to abnormal biology and chemistry in the brain. The exact causes of these abnormalities remain unknown, but this is a very active area of research.

Children with autism typically have difficulties in:

•Pretend play
•Social interactions
•Verbal and nonverbal communication

The exact number of children with autism is not known. A report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that autism and related disorders are more common than previously thought.

If you or anyone you know has been impacted by Autism you know how life changing it may be.  A friend of my family has a new blog up:
