Once rarely seen by physicians, Autism now occurs at a rate of 1 in every 68 births. Autism is a neurological disorder of the brain that typically appears before the age of three. It is referred to as a spectrum disorder because it comes in many different forms and severities. People with Autism have difficulty communicating with others and relating to the outside world.
