Autism Speaks

Autism refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. We now know that there is not one autism but many sub-types, and each person with autism can have unique strengths and challenges. Today, we celebrate those differences, the ones we all have that make us special. Having Autism does make mean you have a process of error, it just means you have a different operating system, and it is in this that we support those with Autism as well as the family and friends who stand by them.
