 Autism is a neurological disorder which severely impairs a child's communication and social interactions. Unable to learn from the natural environment as most children do, the child with autism shows little interest in the world or people around him. While all children with autism develop some normal and even advanced skills, they exhibit a wide range of behavioral deficiencies and excesses. Some behavioral symptoms of autism include: Left untreated, autism inhibits a child's developmental growth to such a degree that most will require lifelong support. Under its broadest definition, autism affects one in 500 Oregon children. While many etiologies are known to cause some types of autism, to date, there are no known preventions nor cures.
