Autism 101: From red flags to a new normal

Posted on

Autism“Every parent of a child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has a story about those early moments when they began to worry that something was ‘not quite right’ with their child’s development,” writes Alexandra Solomon, PhD, in her Clinical Science Insight white paper, “Autism 101: From red flags to a new normal.”

This white paper addresses the definitions of ASDs, how they’re diagnosed, how they’re treated and support options for families. It also lists the signs and symptoms of autism, as well as developmental milestones by age parents can use to monitor their child’s learning, behavior and development.
