About This Event

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is known as a “spectrum disorder,” meaning that although it is defined by a certain set of behaviors, children and adults with autism can exhibit any combination of these behaviors in any degree of severity.  

An estimated one in 68 American youth have been diagnosed with ASD. Join us for this important presentation by the Autism Society of Indiana to learn more about: 

  • the basic characteristics and symptoms that define autism; 
  • early warning signs, behaviors and the importance of early screening; and 
  • available therapies and treatments as well as tips and tricks to help someone on the spectrum. 

Attendees will hear personal testimony about the impact of autism on families and learn about local resources available in the community. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A.
