Definition of Autism

We hear a great deal about autism and many people think they have a handle on what autism is, but the definition from the Autism Society of America may be the best. According to the group, autism is a severely incapacitating lifelong developmental disability that typically appears in the first three years of life. It occurs in approximately 15 out of every 10,000 births, and is four times more common in boys then in girls. Symptoms include disturbances in the rate of appearance of physical, social, and language skills.
