For two reasons: the first is the absurd pride that I feel in my brother for these achievements. I want to share them with everyone. The second is that so many parents of children with the spectrum respond to me with renewed hope,” he said.
Signs and symptoms of a person with autism
People with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often have problems with social communication and interaction, and restrictive or repetitive behaviors or interests. They might also have different ways of learning, moving or paying attention, the CDC notes.
It is important to note that some people without ASD may also have some of these symptoms. These characteristics can make life very difficult for people with this condition.
