Is my Child at Risk for ASD?
Autism expresses itself through a spectrum of symptoms. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) appears in infancy and early childhood, causing delays in many basic areas of development, such as learning to talk, play, and interact with others.
As a parent, you’re in the best position to spot the earliest warning signs of autism and catching autism early makes a huge difference. By recognizing the early signs and symptoms, you can get your child the help they need to learn, grow, and thrive.

- How to Make Decisions about Treatment?
In this section, Mr. Mountjoy will discuss all of the variables to consider in choosing a treatment and a service provider, and the questions to ask and advices to look for. He will also give an overview of what we know today about the treatment of ASD based upon the most recent science.
