Autism Spectrum

Autism Spectrum

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a “developmental disorder” because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life.

Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is a wide variety in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. ASD occurs in all ethnic, racial, and economic groups.

Although ASD can be a lifelong disorder, treatments, and services can improve a person’s symptoms and the ability to function in life.

Children and adults with ASD usually have:

  • Difficulty with communication and interaction with other people
  • Restricted interests and repetitive behaviors
  • Symptoms that hurt the person’s ability to function properly at home, school, work, and other areas of life

Do you need help?

Mental Health

 

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being.

It includes how we think, feel, and act. It determines how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Positive Mental Health

 

When people have positive mental health, they will find it easier to realize their full potential, cope with stress, work productively and are, in general, happier in life.

You will be surprised!

 

Although mental health covers a lot, there are simple techniques and processes that you can learn and implement to improve your mental health!
