Autism Resource Center

Autism spectrum disorders affect as many as 1 in 150 American children. Types of autism include autistic disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, and Asperger's syndrome. The cause of autism is not known. The Autism Resource Center from the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry contains specific family friendly information on Autism. There is an About Section, Glossary of Symptoms, Frequently Asked Questions, Treatment Resources, Facts for Families Sheets by Diagnosis, Video Clips, Clinical Resources, Recommended Books, How to Get Help, Links to Support Groups, and Helpful APPS.
