Autism is a complex brain disorder that affects many aspects of child development, including how a child talks, plays and interacts. The symptoms of autism vary widely, as does the impact of the disorder. Some autistic children have only mild impairments, while others have greater obstacles to overcome.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) includes autistic disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, pervasive development disorder, Rett syndrome and childhood disintegrative disorder. They are complex disorders which can greatly impact a child’s ability to communicate effectively. These disorders also have a significant impact on families.

Children with an ASD have increased difficulty with social interaction, communication skills and developmental language skills. Fortunately, early intervention can significantly improve the outcomes for children with autism and have a positive impact on the entire family.

According to the Autism Society, with appropriate services, supports, training and information, children on the autism spectrum will grow, learn and flourish, even if at a different developmental rate than others.

In light of this optimistic research, Divine Savior Healthcare is proud and excited to be able to offer the community local services which can improve the lives of many of our community members and their families.
