The Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are a group of life-long developmental disabilities that are defined by patterns of unusual social interaction, communication, and behaviors/interests. ASD includes autistic disorder, pervasive developmental disorder -not otherwise specified, and Asperger=s disorder. ASD is more common in boys, and occurs in all regions, cultures, and socioeconomic classes. Until recently, there has been little information on how many children in the United States may be affected with an ASD, and many parents and others are concerned that the rates may be rising. Current estimates indicate that between two and six of every 1,000 children born may have an ASD.
