What is Autism?
By: Michele Phipps
Who does it affect and how?
Autism is a condition that is more common in men, but women are affected almost as much. Autism usually occurs in people 2-60, so not many people are born with this condition. It affects an average of 200k to 3 million people each year. Symptoms include:
- trouble being social or communicating
- repeating actions
- compulsive movements
How many types of autism are there, and how do you treat them?
There are any types of autism, and I have listed them below.
To be honest, I didn't know much about autism when I started researching it. But, now I know how seriously this can affect a persons life. There is a cause that I looked up, it's called Autism Speaks, and it's a non-profit organization to raise money for treatments and maybe a cure for autism. I'm going to try to donate, and if you want to along with me, click the button below to go to their website.
