Autism is a term used for complex disorders of brain development and symptoms tend to be very personal and different for each person.
“These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors,” the Autism Society of West Shore website said.
