Autism is a disorder that has a huge range of characteristics. Doctors will sometimes refer to individuals as “on the spectrum.” The doctors mean that the child has behaviors that fall within a cluster of problems. Children on the autism spectrum may have difficulty relating to people and things. They may have difficulty communicating and their ability to process sensations and to perceive and understand events can be dysfunctional. People with ASD may develop at a different rate. Their physical and cognitive growth may be skewed and they may have difficulty moving in a balanced, functional, and typical fashion.
