Autism

You’ll find helpful information below for specific disorders categorized generally under Intellectual Disability.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. There is often nothing about how people with ASD look that sets them apart from other people, but people with ASD may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most other people. The learning, thinking, and problem-solving abilities of people with ASD can range from gifted to severely challenged. Some people with ASD need a lot of help in their daily lives; others need less.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Behavioral conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) crop up in about one in three autistic people within 15 years of their autism diagnosis. About 20 percent of autistic people are diagnosed with anxiety in that time period. A study of nearly 6 million people reveals the onset and prevalence of nine such diagnoses that often accompany autism1. The work, which includes 30,423 people with autism, is the largest to focus on psychiatric and developmental conditions that occur together.
