Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder of development that lasts throughout a persons lifetime. Because persons with autism exhibit different symptoms or behaviors ranging from mild to serious, autism is considered a spectrum disorder, or a group of disorders with a range of similar features. Autism is characterized by varying degrees of impairment in communication skills, social interactions and restricted repetitive and stereotypical patterns of behavior. At worst, a person with more profound autism may never learn to speak or care f or themselves.
