What is Autism Spectrum?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disability associated with persistent challenges in reciprocal social communication and social interaction as well as restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests or activities. These challenges vary in severity with each individual, which is why it is often referred to as a spectrum. ASD is typically present from very early in childhood. Often times, these traits may create difficulty in executive functioning and adaptive skills as well as communication and even cognitive functioning.
Therapeutic intervention across multiple disciplines is proven very effective for accommodating life on the spectrum.
I was diagnosed with OCD and depression at 15 years old, I remember feeling so alone. I grew up and made it my mission to create a space that could make others feel included.
