According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, autism is the
most common condition in a group of developmental disorders known as autism
spectrum disorders. Autism is characterized by three distinct behaviors: difficulty with
social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication and displaying
repetitive behaviors or having narrow obsessive interests. Scientists aren't sure what
causes autism, but many suspect both genetics and environment are factors. For
