Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 132 individuals is diagnosed with autism, occurring in all racial, ethnic, and social groups with statistics indicating that it is four times more likely to strike boys than girls.
