The Grand Health Institute offers a ample program for the diagnosis and treatment for children with autism, a developmental brain disorder that typically appears during the first three years of life.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, which is characterized by:
• Social impairments
• Communication difficulties
• Restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior

ASD can be linked with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor skill and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Sometimes called autism or classical ASD, is the most severe form of ASD, while other conditions along the spectrum contain a milder form known as Asperger syndrome, a rare condition called Rett syndrome, and childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder.

Although ASD varies considerably in character and severity, it occurs in all ethnic and socioeconomic groups and affects every age group. Experts approximate that three to six children out of every 1,000 will have ASD. Some people with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art. Males are four times more liable to have ASD than females.
