Course Summary

Autism spectrum disorder is a complex brain condition characterized by difficulties in social interaction and communication, as well as a tendency toward repetitive behaviors. In its mildest form, autism spectrum disorder 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. Currently, there is no cure for autism and the focus is on research to develop effective management and prevention strategies.
